Packing it in + Lo & Sons OG Bag

(Photo Credit Lo & Sons)

I travel – a lot. Honestly, I tend to pack a lot more than I really need. What can I say? I like to be prepared. Ask Susan. She constantly makes fun of me when we travel. She shows up with the smallest bag and has twice as much as I do in my 21″ pilot carry on. I am always amazed at her mad packing skills. So when I had the opportunity to review this gorgeous Lo & Sons O.G. (Overnight & Gym Bag) Women’s Lightweight Travel Bag I jumped at the chance to see if I could take everything I needed in one small overnight bag. I took a trip to Chicago this week. 3 days, 2 nights. I packed EVERYTHING I needed into my Lo & Sons O.G. Army Green Bag. Seriously.

I have to admit I fell in love with these bags when I saw them. Their snappy exterior adorned with polished hardware and leather straps definitely made me do a double take. “Lo & Sons bags are built to help you travel light, without compromising functionality and style. Every single feature – from the water resistant nylon inner and exterior that repel stains to the signature internal strap system – was designed to meet the needs of frequent flyers. What’s more, each lightweight bag has tons of accessible pockets, a laptop compartment, and an adjustable sleeve for sliding over your suitcase handles. Translation: less fumbling, more globetrotting.”


If I wouldn’t have seen it for myself I might not have believed how much went into this bag. So I’m going to show you. I used Susan’s rolling technique for all my clothes and WOW does it save room. Here’s a breakdown of exactly what’s in there (contents pictured above):

– 10″ netbook, plug and mouse
– flat iron
– makeup bag
– hairbrush
– sweater
– chunky necklace, cuff bracelet
– 3 long sleeve shirts
– jeans
– camisole
– pajama pants
– 2 pairs socks
– undergarments
– knit hat

P.S. I could have gotten a pair of heels in there (there’s an awesome side zipper for it) but I was going to Chicago and opted to just wear boots. It’s cold there and I’m a wimp. The end.

This bag isn’t just a pretty face either. She’s incredibly smartly designed and manufactured. There are a bazillion compartments. All padded. So much room  you’ll be amazed. AMAZED. It’s pretty much the little black dress (or army green) of travel bags. Lo & Sons have literally thought of everything with this bag. Take a look for yourself.

Trust me you want this bag. It’s unlike any other travel bag I have ever tried. Travel light & look smart? Yes, please! Lucky for you ONE lucky bell’alimento reader is going to WIN the same Lo & Sons O.G. Army Green Bag! It’s a great neutral color that goes with everything!
