Would you use this? Carry-on bags & training bands.

I’m a “if it doesn’t fit in a carry-on, I’m not taking it” kind of gal, and so was paying attention to all the small bags at the Travel Goods show last May in Las Vegas.

One of the interesting carry-on bag twists introduced there was the Genius Pack -a carry-on bag bag with a variety of built-in and add-on features such as integrated mobile chargers and speakers, an easy-to-access compact umbrella compartment, a coat hook and a separate compartment for laundry that compresses air – saving space and keeping your dirty togs away from your still-clean items.

If you look closely in the lower left side of the bag in the picture below, you’ll see some writing. That’s a built-in packing list, which seems helpful for last-minute packers.

I’ve got one of these bags at my house right now, just begging me to fill it up and take it out on the road.

One of the items already in the bag is a small sack of Rexist 360 Training Bands and instructions for a 20 minute hotel workout that promises toning “in all the right places.”

I’ll let you know if this new carry-on ends up replacing the smaller shoulder bag I’ve been using and if the training bands replaces the single pink resistance band I’ve been toting around the world.

But in the meantime… just wondering: would you use these?
