This is The Bag

My partner and I have been steadily reducing the luggage we take travelling in an effort to cope with service charges, lost luggage (twice in one trip) and - in a small way - to reduce our travel footprint. We have gotten our packing to the point where we carry on only enough to put under the seat, but the carry on and knapsacks we were using were not cutting it. Bento Bag totally does - has a place for everything and keeps pieces separate so you don’t have to search through your whole bag to get to something while still fitting under the seat. Wonderfully freeing - yet still organized - way to travel. This is The Bag.

Bento for Travel

I love this bag. I did a lot of research on many bags before deciding to purchase this bag. Even though it was more than I was planning to spend, I made the decision because it is quite functional and offered the features I was looking for (compartments, lightweight, underseat sizing and spacious) in a combined travel and everyday work bag. The only reason I didn’t give it five stars is I haven’t used it yet. I will be putting it to the test for a trip coming up in two weeks.

Great second carry on

Excellent design. Love that it opens like a conventional suitcase. Many storage compartments. All it is advertised to be. Also, looks durable.

Perfect solution!

I searched the internet for weeks and decided on your bag. So happy with it as the quality is amazing, the size and configurations is what sold me. I’ll be using this on domestic and international travel as I’m trying to not check luggage ever again.

The Perfect Carry-on personal item

I love this bag! I just received it and have started packing for my trip that’s coming up in a few days and it is exactly as advertised. It fits a lot and everything has a place. I especially love the liquids case, electronics case and shoe bags that it comes with. It seems large but looks like it will still fit under the seat as advertised.

Perfect

I was looking for a carry on that could handle all my electronics, toiletries, cosmetics and Dyson airWrap, so I could leave my roller board just for clothes. This fits all of that and a pair of slides comfrortably and it packs so easily because it opens flat. I love it.

Really nice bag - well worth it

I’ve been debating on this bag for a while but very happy I got it. It’s been a few weeks and it’s been used a few times so still making adjustments but definitely the most efficient bag I’ve had to date - buy one!

Great Bag!

I love this bag! the trolly sleeve fits perfectly on top on my suitcase and I can travel confidently. The many pockets allow me to take more than previous bags and separates my items for easier access.

Shipping was a breeze - less than 3 days. Amazing carry bag - lightweight, compact and looks smart. Though small can still carry all my clothes and necessities for short or long stays. It’s all you really need. The Nomad Lane team was also terrific to deal with. Thanks Nomad Lane !

Great Bag

I love the ease of traveling with this bag, pockets are easily accessible for going through security etc. Along with a carry on bag, I’ll have enough room for at least two weeks of travel.

Super amazing customer service! I had a question and it was answered and resolved exactly how I wanted promptly. I’m taking this bag on it’s inaugural trip next month but it appears to be the perfect size!

Returning customer, they made it even better with 3.0!

I was an original backer of this Bento Bag back during the initial fundraiser days, and my version 1.0 bag has been to dozens of countries and about a hundred flights. I love the compartments, the unfolding zippers, and the many pockets. Overall, after a decade of trying different bags this is still the best airplane underseat bag I've ever found, highly recommended 5 stars.

Improvement Ideas: After years of use, I had 3 areas of improvement for the bag: 1) better zippers [fixed in v3.0 of the bag], 2) the bag gets "slouchy" after time and should have a reinforced exterior structure [improved in v3.0 of the bag], and 3) the back flap which slides into the luggage handle is shorter than it should be, meaning the back flap should come up higher on the bag to maintain optimal stacking on luggage.

Perfect Carry-on bag

This bag is everything that I expected. I look forward to using for years and years. I love the trolley sleeve.

This is THE ONE !!!

I have spent the majority of my working life as a Flight Attendant - now retired. I have used airline required bags and quite a bit of my own choosing. My last bag was what I would call a "drop it in and lose it" bag. I am so excited to find Nomad Lane’s Bento Bag. There is literally a spot for everything which makes it totally clutter free. The zippers are quality too. This will always be my Personal Item Bag. And an aside … it arrived very quickly. Best bag ever. I’m in love - totally THE ONE.

Great bag! Obvious; everything was carefully thought out to come up with such bag! I cannot wait to use this for international carry on and for long weekend! Maybe a bit pricey, worth it in the long run!

Bento Bag

Love the color and the zippers are sooo smooth. I love the organization that the bag gives you. My favorite feature is the wide strap that allows you to hook the Bento Bag onto your rolling suitcase. So sturdy and ease to use. This is just a great bag!

Great, stylish bag

This is a great and stylish bag with many extras included that aren’t even on the description (which was a nice bonus). It is compact but has many compartments to store all of your stuff. I've started packing it for an upcoming trip and it is the perfect size for a carry on.
