The Bento Bag Sport Edition
This limited edition is our lightest version ever. It features water-resistant nylon YKK zippers across all the top access pockets giving the bag a more subdued look with the same exceptional quality and functionality you have come to expect from us.
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.
