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, providing easy access to in-flight essentials while mid-air, without the need to get up from your seat or reach for the overhead bin. It features dedicated pockets for all your travel essentials, including toiletries, tech gadgets, and your passport.

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.
I travel 2-3 times a month and needed a bigger personal item bag as my Tumi laptop bag just didn’t cut it.
I was a little apprehensive when I first saw the bag as I felt it might be too big for an under the seat bag. However I’ve flown on an a360 and 737 and it fit perfectly underneath the seats.
Very happy with the quality, size and the multiple pockets this bag has to offer.
There are so many pockets everywhere! I love that this personal bag opens like a suitcase. I love the front pocket for easy access of my important documents, keys, passport, etc. It fits all of my essential items: Laptop, Nintendo switch, shoes, clothes, toiletries, medicine, etc. My bag came with some extra goodies: a clear toiletry bag and a bag for chargers. The V4 bag is not super tall so it can fit under the seat in front of you. It has a lot of width so you can fit many items into it. The bag looks and feels professional. I would love to see more neutral cream colors with some gold accents in the future. As of right now, this will be my go to personal travel bag.
This bag is amazing. It takes up so little space but it’s clear it will hold so much. The fact that it opens like a suitcase is genius. I can’t wait to use it on all my trips from weekend getaways to international travel.
I love the v4 Bento Bag!
Plenty of room, well laid out, and easy to use in the airport and plane. It holds a lot and is sturdy. So many options, depending on what you’re packing.
I’ve looked at these bags for years and finally bought one. I used it to travel for a 2 day meeting and it was the only bag I took. Packed 2 pairs of shoes (just flats), 3 full outfits, laptop, toiletries, and several folders. I used it for a work bag during the day without all the clothes and stuff and didn’t find it too bulky. I really like the top pockets and the pouches for liquids and electronics. They are actually useful. I packed it better the second time and am sure that I’ll continue to hone the process. But overall it is a really well made bag that makes sense and packs a lot.
I have been searching for the perfect carry-on under the seat bag to accompany my carry-on luggage since the airlines have lost or delayed luggage this past year. The v4 Bento bag is perfect. I can now carry more without checking a bag! Opening up flat like a suitcase, all the zippers sturdy and the creative way the bag is designed with so many pockets is exactly what I have been looking for. Thank you Nomad Lane!
Excellent fabric and compartments
I just packed for an international trip. I’m thrilled with how much the bag holds and for all the very thoughtful features. I was reluctant to spend so much money but I think this may be the perfect carry on bag!
