I have owned Lug products since 2008 and I couldn’t be more impressed with their product offerings and quality. LUG has amazing solutions for everyday and travel that are look good but are extremely functional!
Lug hit the scene in 2005, when founders Jason and Ami launched the brand with offices in Dallas and Toronto. Our focus was travel—how to get there smarter and with style. A business based on luggage belts and coordinating tags has grown to bags, big and small, plus a slew of smart solutions that fit for travel, work, play, and everyday.
One of my very first reviews of the Lug Puddle Jumper Gym/Overnight Bag and last summer I had a chance to try out the Undercover Bears by Lug. My Oscar bear has become my companion for travel, providing both a blanket and pillow for maximum comfort.
Now I’ve had the chance to try out three new items from LUG, all of which I’m actually excited to tell you about! The first is the Gondola Slouch Tote. This bag is really so much more than a tote and comes in a wide variety of colors. I’ve been using it as my new handbag for every day and it came in very handy while traveling to Chicago.
Because the tote can fold completely flat, I was able to store it in my carry on and use my backpack as my additional bag while in the airport and on the plane. Yet I had the perfect sized handbag during my stay in Chicago.
This slouch tote is extremely light, features a modern quilting pattern and is very easy to clean! It even has a wipeable bottom. I have received numerous compliments on this bag including my son’ s teacher and my hair stylist. It seems to get attention wherever I go (seriously!) and gets me in the mood for spring with the grass green color I chose.
The Double Back Flip Wallet is a new item this spring and sold out almost immediately on the LUG website. (It is now back!) After owning it, I can see why.
Besides having multiple sections within the wallet, the amazing feature is the two accordion pockets in front which easily organize all your cards! This wallet is the perfect addition to my slouch tote and the plum purple goes great with the grass green.
I also got to experience the benefits of organized travel. I’ll be the first to admit I’m not the most organized person but the LUG Cargo Packing Squares are the perfect way to keep everything together in your suitcase!
They also come in several different colors and in a package of three different sizes. You can easily fold them into a small pouch that is sewn into the square so they take up very little room! I used the smallest square to organize my electronic cords in my backpack for items like the laptop, camera, ipod, etc.
The large square did a fabulous job of keeping me very organized within my carry-on. Trust me, I’ve never had a suitcase which looked so tidy and yet it was so easy!
LUG knows and understands travel, comfort and style so well that I really have no suggestions on how to improve these products. The quality and functionality is definitely found in all three and I can’t think of a single thing I would change!
The Gondola Slouch Tote retails for $49, the Double Backflip Wallet for $32 and the Cargo 3 pc Packing Squares are $42. All are available on their website or look for their product on Amazon. You can follow Lug on twitter and facebook to stay on top of current Lug news and discounts!
