Breeze through the Airport
We designed the Nomad Lane Bento Bag to be the ideal travel companion. It's packed with features and it makes getting to your gate stress-free.
Security-Friendly Pockets. Instead of digging through your bag at security, the Bento Bag has specially designed pockets for the things you need to reach quickly. There's a built-in padded laptop pocket at the center of the bag that can quickly be reached via the top access zippers. It also has two top pockets that can hold toiletries and tech gear.
Fits Under the Seat. The Bento Bag was designed to fit under the seat in front of you so you have easy access to in-flight essentials when mid-air without having to get up from your seat or reaching for the overhead bin. It has dedicated pockets for all your travel essentials, so you have easy access to your toiletries, tech gadgets, passport etc.
Built for the Road Ahead
The Bento Bag is the perfect plus one for a day around town or a weekend on the road.
Weekender Status. The Bento Bag has the perfect amount of space to pack for a weekend away – including several changes of clothes, a pair of shoes and toiletries.
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.
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.
Excellent design. Love that it opens like a conventional suitcase. Many storage compartments. All it is advertised to be. Also, looks durable.
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.
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.
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.
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!
Love the design, functional & organized! Fits perfectly under seat on a Delta flight! Have been shopping for something like this for years, happy to finally find this gem.
