No one likes a wrinkle in their travel plans — or their travel pants for that matter.
While we can’t help a delayed flight or a weather mishap while on the road or in the sky, what we can do is help you travel in style with your suits and dresses pressed and ready to wear upon arrival.
No need to pack a steamer or iron (although, a travel steamer isn’t a bad idea) when you have a garment bag or a garment bag carry-on that doubles as your luggage.
Like a normal bag that hangs in your closet, these contraptions help keep suit jackets pressed, dresses unwrinkled and the rest of your delicates just the way you packed them — should they be able to be packed flat, that is.
Then, pack the garment bag in your suitcase or simply finish filling the carry-on and off you go, wrinkle-free.
