Twenty years ago, you could stroll into an airport an hour before your flight, get through security without being strip-searched, and take a water bottle on board without getting tased. Things have changed, and we travelers had to adapt. Unfortunately, our luggage hasn’t always keep up with the times.
Even though increased security measures have made it harder to organize, pack, and unpack our cargo, most baggage remains cumbersome. Genius Pack recognized this arrested development and decided to bring some innovation to the baggage market. Check out five of their best bags here— all of which include special pricing that will be departing very soon (pun intended).
1. The Ultimate Travel Backpack — $179.99
The ideal choice for the minimalist businessperson, the Genius Pack Travel Backpack hides a host of helpful features under its stylish yet unassuming exterior. It’s the first backpack to include a trifold garment suiter, allowing its owner to pack a blazer and slacks without wrinkling them into oblivion. Its padded interior compartments can hold a 16-inch laptop and tablet, an outside pocket is perfect for holstering your smartphone, and the included GP Charger lets you replenish your devices’ batteries on the go.
Though it’s carry-on approved, it can still hold enough clothing for two to three days, plus Genius Pack’s Laundry Compression Technology keeps dirty clothes bundled up and out of the way until laundry day.
