Garment Bag Tote for European Travel

Jump to last reply

I have been advised by some people not to bring a garment bag for my multi-city, three week trip to Italy.

However, I need further advice. I have a Samsonite tri-fold bag (http://www.bedbathandbeyond.com/1/1/63040-wallybags-garmentote-52-tri-fold-garment-bag.html) that allows you to put clothes on hangers.

It's carry-on size and slips comfortable over my rolling luggage handle for easy carry. When folder, it's about the side of a laptop bag. Is there any reason I shouldn't bring such a bag.

It seems an easier and more worry-free option that a backpack. It'll keep my nicer clothes wrinkle free and provide an easy way to hang my clothes at each destination.

I understand a normal garment bag is long and unwieldy but I've tested rolling my luggage around with this bag attached and it seems quite easy.

Thoughts?
