I asked for the Lo & Sons “OG” bag for Christmas and Q, being the sweetest fiancee ever, bought it for me. My first trip with my new carry on was a big one: I was going to take it to Paris, San Francisco and finally LA over a 2 week span. Packing for international travel is tougher than a quick jaunt to LA for the weekend. I had to be prepared for a 15-hour travel day and have everything I would need on hand. And this bag did not disappoint. It has compartments for everything including a padded one for my computer and a separate zipped area for travel shoes. I LOVE that everything had it’s own little spot and I knew exactly where I could find it all.
It’s SO light, waterproof and durable, I had this pup loaded up with my goodies and it held up perfectly. And it looks good! I got the all black with silver hardware and think it is super chic. Those two zippers at the bottom open up so your bag can hook onto a rollie suitcase (genius design feature).
And here are my travel essentials that fit inside!
Neck Pillow: I’m not going to lie, I stole this from Q on our last flight after seeing how cozy it looked. This is the best thing for sleeping on a plane and not having your head bounce around.
Scarf: Stella & Dot, this is a great in-flight blanket and it’s cute for travel days!
Accessories: I always take a face cream for my dried out skin, hand lotion and hand sanitizer!
Tech Gear: My Bose QuietComfort Noise Cancelling Headphones are the best purchase for traveling. Yes they are pricey ($300), but they make being on an airplane with kids/people talking a breeze. They cancel out the noise and make listening to music amazing. My iPad and computer are also travel staples. Reading with my kindle app on my iPad and being able to watch DVDs on my computer make long flights fly by.
Snacks: I don’t like getting hangry (that place where hungry and angry meet), so I always carry a snack with me. Think Thin bars are some of my favorites.
DVD: The Good Wife is addicting. Q and I can’t get enough. Seriously watch it.
So if you couldn’t tell, I adore this bag. It was pricey for a carry on, but SO worth it. I can see myself using this bag for years to come and for other things besides travel like going to the gym. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE! Lo & Sons makes a smaller size carry on, if this one seems like too much called “The OMG” and also some other amazing bags on the website!
