Leaving in 48 hours for an EU destination- what I used to carry in a stuffed and way-too-heavy backpack now fits in a small portable bag without any fuss AND with space left over. There are pockets that I didn't see until I got to the airport even! Never ever going to travel anywhere without this bag.
A colleague of mine introduced me to her Nomad Bento Bag. I delayed ordering it because I hate to spend so much on something for work, but it is what I WORK with so I ordered it. Where has this bag been all of my life? It holds EVERYTHING, and I can find everything easily. It fits under a plane seat and in most bins. Thank you Nomad!
I like to travel with a well packed bag and this bag allows me to do that. I usually need to take a large handbag with me which inevitably collects the things I need at the bottom where I can’t find them. The Nomad bag is designed to allow you to put the things you need while you’re travelling close at hand while securely packing the things you won’t normally need to get at. Looking forward to using it this week on a close excursion and hopefully soon on longer excursions. Simply love it and am so happy I purchased it. I was looking for a secondary carry on for months when I found my new Nomad. I selected the sport edition with brass in navy and I love the look. The zippers run smoothly and are easy to open and close without any sticky points.
I just bought this bag for my first post-pandemic trip. I was able to get a LOT of stuff into the bag- probably more than I should have, because it was a tad heavy on my shoulder. But it was so satisfying to know exactly where everything was when I needed it. And it fir beautifully under the seat in front of me! For my first trip, I’m giving it two thumbs up!
Very well thought out and roomy!
So excited to start traveling again. I did a lot of researching on “personal item” travel bags and I’m happy with this purchase. The navy blue matches the color of my new Away bigger carry-on, for the perfect ensemble.
Bento Bag® v 3.0
Live all the compartments and we’ll organized pockets. Lots of zippers to access items. Bounty’s is the bag folds open for ease of packing. Love it!
I am loving this bag. Quality construction- seams, zippers, and handles. The interior is much roomier than I had expected. The padded pocket holds my laptop and my iPad safely. The charging port and key strap are great additions.
I was reluctant at first to purchase this but boy am I glad that I did. To give some background I’ve been to 97 countries now and hopefully it goes without saying that I’m a frequent traveler. I despise checking luggage so I always travel with a roller board and a personal carry-on. This is a very well thought out bag. I would say those that are Type A and like to have a specific spot for every item that they can easily reach will love this. If you are the throw everything in an endless pit duffel-bag type then this is probably not for you. I love that I have what seems like endless compartments to store. It fits a surprising amount and everything just feels very well thought out. I am now about 2 weeks through a trip to Europe and am loving this bag. Very satisfied.
I absolutely love this bag. I bought two! I love all the compartments so I know exactly where my things are. It is my go-to bag for short business trips when I go carry-on only. And a perfect weekender. I love how smart, sleek and professional it looks. I have the original versions but now I think I also want a 3.0 on a new color!
Love the bag! Am going to Sicily and was looking for a personal bag that would easily fit under the seat on the plane. It also needed to be large enough to accommodate some additional “essentials” I would use on a long flight. I’m delighted!
I have been looking at this bag on and off for the last 2 months. I was not sure until I did some research on other bags and this one doesn't even come close to the others. It hit all my wants. I love the different compartments but the size was also a factor. I only do carry ons when I fly so it needed to be very compact with enough room to bring what I needed. When I received it I was thrilled. The size, color and weight is exactly what I wanted. It fits perfect on top of my larger carry on. The outside USB port was also a must and it is perfect. Loved the extra small clear bags for TSA. I am so looking forward to using it when I go to Australia in the spring. Thank you. Love it. DJM
I have an original Bento Bag and have used it every time I travel, either by auto or air -- it works for all conditions. I can fit about 3 days of clothes and toiletries along with my tech gear. My husband decided to steal my bag for himself so I purchased the new 3.0 version of the Bento Bag. Lots of improvements -- especially the zippers and the bigger pouches for toiletries and tech gear. It's a smartly designed product and am glad I was an early buyer and I'm very happy with the 3.0 bag! Will purchase more as gifts for family!
I just purchased the sport edition. It looks great. I love the functional pockets for papers, pens, and supplies. The material and zippers are high quality.
So well engineered every detail is splendid. I’m waiting for more color choices. Current palate (except plum) is boring and doesn’t enhance most suitcase colors currently offered. How about some metallics and punched up hues? I’m waiting 😬
I took this bag on a week long domestic trip and it fit everything I needed. I was able to keep it under my plane seat too. This is definitely my go to travel bag now!
Got my bento bag in short order and everything seems solid. Can’t wait to travel with it. Leaving this as four stars only because I haven't stressed tested it with travel yet.
Not too worried though.
Love my bag and will be using soon on a trip.
I love the functionality and convenience of this bag; it is beautiful, a pleasure to use, and clearly well made!
Nothing compares to the storage this bag has and how easy it use to travel with!
I love my bag! I have not used it yet but can't wait to use it on an upcoming trip.
I just had my first trip with the bag. Really love the compartments and the look. I would personally would pay more for a more luxurious bag with the same configuration. The bag is nice, but not really high-end. Recommend.
I am thrilled with my new Bento bag and I cannot wait for my next trip in August. The quality is as good as promised, it is a good looking product, and I love the organizational possibilities!
Great quality with thoughtful details
