eBags, an Easy Choice for Travelers

I’m an avid traveler and I’m always on the hunt for the best travel gear, luggage and accessories that will make my life a little easier as I roam the world. While I used to be the girl that always needed to have matchy-matchy luggage, I’ve evolved a little. Now days, I go for complementing shades that mesh nicely with my current travel arsenal. Comfort is also a key factor in my luggage decision; as is functionality. I want it to look good, feel good and do exactly what I need it to do…when I need it to do it.
So recently I set my scope on testing out a few pieces in eBag’s TLS collection. I got my hands on the Mother Lode Weekender Convertible and the Junior version for smaller-framed travelers, the eTech 2.0 Weekender Convertible Junior and a set of the packing cubes.
Here’s what I found: The convertible feature is by far the best asset in this collection. The ability to use any of these eBags as a backpack, as a laptop bag, as a duffel bag, or a carry on suitcase—it’s an all-in-one and still leaves plenty of room for style. Converting from backpack to duffle is a cinch with the easy built in storage for the straps. They all have convenient handles strategically placed for lifting or carrying. Space is not in issue with roomy compartments for all belongings, plus extras. The colors are vibrant and trendy. The abundance of options allows you to mix and match. The functionality of the eBags, especially the laptop sling feature in the Mother Lodes, adjusts according to the size of your laptop; as well as a comfortable vertical position for your back. The tie down straps will prevent articles for shifting around inside; while the mesh pockets and front zippered compartments makes organizing everything simple. There’s also an easy access place to store a water bottle, passports and boarding passes. The durable design of these eBags is perfect for quick trips or long hauls and there’s a style and color that will appeal to everyone in the family.
The packing cubes take organizing a suitcase to another level. The mesh tops allow you to see what’s inside of them so you can grab what you need quickly. They come in sixteen different colors, are versatile and can be used to separate clean clothes from dirty ones; shoes from your clothes; or grouping items or outfits together.
After testing the TLS Collection of eBags I decided to add the Mother Lode Weekender Convertible Junior to my list of favorites. I carried it with the packing cubes on a recent trip. As soon as I boarded my flight, a lady sitting next to me noticed my new, attractive turquoise travel gear. I gave her the rundown of how it housed my laptop, chargers, two textbooks, plus enough clothes for four days with extra pairs of shoes. She was noticeably impressed and I knew I had made the right decision!
