Top 3 Garment Bags
Garment bags aren’t as well used as their commonly used counterpart, the carry-on. However for some people they are a travel essential. If you’re one for travelling light, you may want to consider a garment bag. They are perfect for a business trip or a few days away, and help to keep your clothes relatively crease free and easily hung when you arrive at your destination.
Ideal for carrying suits or formal wear, a garment bag allows you to transport your clothes easily and almost completely wrinkle free. No one wants to turn up at a business meeting with a creased suit now do they? Usually when travelling you won’t have the time to iron your shirts and such, so the garment bag could be an excellent investment for you. Of course you still have to iron them before you travel!
There are a lot of options out there for the garment bag. With loads of respected brands now making garment bags, you’re going to have a lot of choice. If you choose the right one, you’re going to have access to loads of storage space! Usually in the actual inner garment tube you can fit a couple of shirts and 2 suits. Plus the additional pockets to carry essentials like toiletries and underwear.
Seeing as one of the main purposes of a garment bag is to keep nice clothes in good condition, its pretty essential that the materials are super high quality to ensure the clothes stay pristine! So you can be pretty sure in the fact that these garment bags will last a long time.
So, whether you’re travelling via airports, train stations, or just carrying them on the street, these garment bags will provide you with ultimate ease when transporting. Some bags can even be slung over the shoulder easily.
Choosing the right garment bag will give you peace of mind when you travel, knowing your belongings are safe and secure, and also make your trip just that little bit easier! So, make sure you choose the right one!

Lorenz Deluxe Garment Bag Review – Our Number 2
This garment bag is at the much cheaper end of the price range. Clearly a bargain, I wanted to see how much, if at all, it was going to compromise on quality. I hadn’t head much about this particular brand before but was excited to try it out. Perhaps I had found a new favourite that could be saving me a lot of money in the future!
From first impressions, it felt really nice. Its made from a nice material and feels super light, but really flexible as well. The outer is hard wearing, high quality, 600 denier polyester. It looks smart and the sheer black is really cool. Its really lightweight which is perfect for a garment bag, because the lack of wheels means it is always being carried. So at only 1.2kg this is really impressively light.
It is regulation carry on size, of course, so no need to worry there. And with the capacity of carrying a good couple of shirts and a suit or two, you can really travel with ease with this bag. There are also plenty of practical zippered pockets to store and secure your other valuables, including a cool long accessories pocket for ties or jewellery. It is separated into two compartments, one larger for the clothes, and another pretty perfect for documents, and valuables.
This bag is remarkably practical. It folds right in half for easy transport, and has a super comfy padded shoulder strap which is removable if you need to, and has dual padded handles for extra comfort.
The lining is fully lined with a luxurious silky material, and the zippers are strong and heavy duty, so you can be assured the zippers aren’t going to come off in your hand, as I have experienced with some cheaper luggages. It also features a hanging hook and fasteners.
- High quality material – hard wearing 600 denier polyester
- Dimensions (closed) – Height – 55cm, Width – 60cm, Depth – 20cm
(opened) – Height – 110cm, Width – 60cm, Depth – 10cm
- Compact design – so you can carry all of your belongings efficiently, and folds in half easily for easy transport
- Padded removable shoulder strap – so you can carry even a heavily loaded bag with ease
- Dual padded handles – for comfort when carrying, especially long distances by hand.
- Large strong lockable zippers – super strong so you can rely on these zippers being durable, and easily lockable with a small lock.
Overall I would say that this case served its purpose excellently. Its not all singing and dancing, with bells and whistles, as you may have with higher priced garment bags, but you don’t need it. This garment bag is practical and smart, and did its job in protecting my garments excellently. I would say that this is definitely worth the money, and then some. It doesn’t feel cheap, which I was expecting with a bag at this price. I’m yet to test the durability over time but for the two trips it has been on, its held up excellently. I would definitely recommend this garment bag for any business man or jet setter out there.
Features: Lightweight – Durable – Compact design – Removable shoulder strap – Strong zippers
Price: Low range/budget
Zegur 3 Suit Carry-on Garment Bag Review – Our Number 3
So, the bag arrives, and I must say, first impressions are great. It feels pretty light and the material feels great. Its made from 1800D polyester, which is super thick and durable, a little stronger than the Lorenz. This bag is guaranteed to be fully waterproof and fray resistant, which is amazing.
What I love about this garment bag is the attention to detail. They’ve really put the little extra effort in to make the bag really practical. My favourite feature is the interior dual buckle, which held my garments in place perfectly, they came out of the trip with not a single crease. And who has time to do their ironing when they’re travelling?! More time to relax, less time worrying!
Again we have a detachable shoulder strap, which is padded and adjustable for extra comfort, with soft padded handles as well. This garment bag is also well within the carry on restrictions on any airline, so you know you won’t get stung with any check in charges!
When your luggage is practical, it takes a lot of the stress out of the annoying task of packing and travelling. With the garment bag you really know where you’ve put everything, there are multiple zipped pockets, maximising the capacity. The exterior pocket is perfect for travel documents, and valuables that you need to keep handy while you travel. The lining is an elegantly printed silky material, which adds that little finishing finesse onto this bag.
- High quality material – 1800D polyester so its super thick, but lightweight and durable
- Dimension – Height – 56cm, Length – 58cm, Depth – 10cm
- Weight 1.5kg
- Stylish design – Really nice smart black design and good material so you can travel in style
- 100% Money back guarantee – so if you’re not satisfied with your garment bag, you can get a full refund
I think this is an excellent bag. It features everything you need from a garment bag, and my clothes came out of transit in perfect condition, ready to wear, which is great. I do feel that I lost the couple of centimetres in the capacity though. I like the knowledge that there is a money back guarantee, meaning the company has faith in its own products, which gives me faith in their products too! I would be hesitant to buy this particular bag at its full price though, as I feel it was a little expensive for what it is, at the price I found it at however I would definitely recommend it.
Features: High quality – Durable – Smart design – Removable shoulder strap – 100% money back guarantee
Price: Mid range
Perhaps a little predictable, but I’m going to have to go with the Samsonite garment bag as the leader in the field. Although at the more expensive end of the range, the quality is just unfaltering. I was really impressed at the value for money with the other bags, but for me I would rather spend a little extra for the added details and functions that come with the Samsonite. It really made my trips so easy, and I would say was the perfect companion for my frequent business trips.
