Details That Matter
The Bento Bag was designed for ‘bleisure’ travelers who are looking for a bag that can take them from airplane mode to work mode. The Bento Bag is lightweight, has organizational pockets, fits under a plane seat and charges your phone.
Packs like a suitcase. The Bento Bag opens down the middle, making it easy to pack. Includes nifty features like a key leash, water bottle loop, external charging port etc.
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.
Never Lose Power
A low battery can be extremely disrupting, especially when traveling. That’s why we built an easy access charging port for your devices within the bag.
It's Unbiased. The external port takes any standard USB charging cable so it works well with both iPhone and Android devices. The inner wire connects to any standard battery pack.
Boarding to Boardroom
The Bento Bag was created for the way you live and work. It allows you to seamlessly transition from business to leisure and everything in between.
Office Ready. Fits up to a 15" MacBook Pro, tablet, notebook, papers, snacks etc. It can also fit a pair of shoes, toiletries and an extra set of clothes for the gym.
High Quality. Made with premium materials so you can feel confident heading into that big meeting straight from the airport. The Bento Bag also features lightweight nylon and upgraded premium zippers (including YKK and Zoom).
Multiple Ways to Carry. Slides over your carry-on for long airport treks. Includes an adjustable padded shoulder strap for convenient carrying and has comfortable microfiber handles.
The Bento Bag is available in 4 colors and 2 hardware options.
How to Pack the Bento Bag

I love your bag. My only suggestion would be to make the two “insert bags”—for toiletries and tech cords, larger and the “stuff in” spots for them larger! Otherwise, it’s a great bag!
I am not a business person but I thought it is very organized and well made. I gave it 4 stars because it is too heave for me. After I fill it, it will be too heavy for me to handle so I will return it
Truly—I am floored by how perfect this bag is. A lot of different companies act like they created the next “big thing,” but these guys really did the due diligence to make an outstanding product. Quality, features, and appearance are 5 stars. Fits PERFECTLY under the seat on all planes I’ve been on. Also such a relief slipping the trolley sleeve over your roller carry on instead of worrying about carrying multiple different things. Can’t recommend this product enough.
The bag is just the perfect size for 2-3 day trips (if you’re a light packer), but also compact enough to be a daily carry, particularly if you want to combine your gym bag and work/laptop bag. The quality of the material might not be the absolute best on the market (would have wished for waterproof material) but the price is also rather friendly for similar bags. No issues with zipper as many have reported. Overall, a great purchase and a great bag.
Love, Love, this bag. Bought one for myself and now I’m buying one for my husband. We travel to NC and Texas to visit family and this bag is perfect for for those trips.
I was skeptical about buying this bag at first, because I thought it was a little pricey and didn't see what all the hype was about. I prefer to use a backpack for a carry on bag. But my wife wanted it, and she travels at least once a month, so I decided to get it for her after she showed me the Indiegogo. I backed it, and was initially surprised that it came at the scheduled time, a rarity based on most of the things that I back on Kickstarter, etc., and the first sign of a well run company. After using it for a few months, she complained about the zipper. So I tried to apply some zipper wax to make the zipper pull smoother, but one zipper was still a bit sticky. So, a few months later, I took another look and realized the zipper had a missing tooth, causing it to get stuck if you opened it too far. I emailed Nomad Lane about the possibility of getting it fixed, and they just sent me an entire new bag.
In the meantime, before the replacement came, we took a family trip, where I ended up carrying the bulk of the luggage. I really came to fall in love with the Bento bag because it really is perfect. The size is great for carryon; it's small enough to fit under seats or easily above your seat, but it stores a ton, more than I expected, and it's well organized and durable. My wife even puts her laptop between the two sides and can access it without getting everything out. I especially loved the way the bag fits over the handle of the rolling suitcase using what Nomad Lane calls the "trolley sleeve." I don't care what you call it, I think it works genius, and is way more secure than I initially thought it would be. I sort of pictured the trolly sleeve would begin to rip or show signs of wear due to the way my wife overstuffed the bag and then the way we drug it through multiple airports, busses, trains, etc., but it still looks brand new.
If I ever start traveling again for work, I'll probably have to pick one up for me too.
I am impressed. Took my Bento bag on a week long trip to Egypt, Jordon and Germany and it worked out perfectly. It holds a surprisingly large volume within its compact size. Love the bag, it incredibly well designed and made.
This is the perfect personal item to carry all the leftovers not packed in my regular bag.
Love the organization and open spaces available!!
