Great Garment Bag Features

If your budget is tight and you're not concerned about appearances or durability, simple vinyl garment bags may offer everything you need.

If you're ready to step it up a notch, look for some of these features in the travel garment bags you consider:

  • Heavy-duty zippers (usually the first thing to fail on a garment bag)
  • Hook for securing hangers, so your clothes don't drop to the bottom of the bag in a wad
  • Removable pockets (great for storing ties or scarves)
  • Heavy-duty wheels for durability
  • Contoured handle for easy walking
  • Foam bolsters to prevent wrinkling
  • Convenient pocket for tickets and other in-flight necessities
