eBags.com Tip: You're set for the big presentation in LA -- PowerPoint slides loaded onto a disk, great-looking suit, perfect shoes. Then the airline gremlins whisk your bag to Boston, and you're left standing in California with nothing but a set of travel-rumpled clothes and a vague memory of what you had planned to say.
Today, many business travelers avoid being stranded at the airport by carrying the most important items in a carry-on bag. Fortunately, many manufacturers have carry-on garment bags available to help get your clothes to the next meeting unwrinkled and unruffled.
In particular, check out bags from Travelpro, like the Garments 2 Go bag, which acts like a garment bag on one side and a traditional suitcase on the other. More than just one of the many garment bags with wheels, this Travelpro bag includes a removable extension panel for long garments -- great if you're tall or frequently carry evening wear.
