In all my travels, one of the biggest challenges I often face is packing my long dresses or my husband’s suits. To avoid wrinkles, he usually wears it on the plane and folds it carefully in the overhead storage; if we are lucky enough to be flying on business class, the flight attendant hangs it up for him. The lengths we’ve resorted to got old years ago, but we finally have our solution! No more frantic struggling to fold suits and dresses inside a suitcase (or just wearing them to the airport), because with the SkyRoll garment bag, it easily wraps around the suitcase.

A carry-on that also features a garment bag! Sounds pretty awesome, right? I recently received a SkyRoll Spinner suitcase to take on my next trip, and I was thrilled to try it out.

SkyRoll Spinner Suitcase

Skyroll was made specifically for the business traveler who need to pack professional clothing sans wrinkles. A garment bag is the only way to go when you need to bring suits, but most aren’t carry-on friendly. When you have to go straight from the plane to a meeting, waiting for the baggage carousel to deliver your luggage is a hassle and a waste of your precious time. Why check luggage when you can use carry-on bags? On top of that, baggage fees can be ridiculously expensive these days. But packing clothes so that they stay looking fresh is a challenge.

If you’re a frequent cruiser, you might have a stronger need for packing formal clothing than the rest of us leisure travelers, but we still need a garment bag for different types of vacations.

The SkyRoll Garment Bag

The garment bag is one of SkyRoll’s most unique features, and it’s used in each of the luggage options they offer. It clips to each of the different luggage options, so you start by packing this first by laying it on a flat surface (it zips open/closed).

The garment bag measures 19×55 inches which is great for long dresses, and men’s suit jackets. When you pack your clothing (e.g., suits, pants, shirts and/or dresses) into a garment bag, place your items flat into the garment bag. No hangers are needed. The garment bag also has two other mesh pockets where you can store small items, like ties, belts, scarves, so you have everything you need right in one place.

When you’re finished, just zip the garment bag closed and wrap it around the suitcase portion after you’ve completed the rest of your packing. It attaches/detaches with clips. If you pack more in your garment bag, you can loosen the belts attached to the clips to help it fit. It also stays in place with Velcro on the top and bottom, so it doesn’t slide down and end up under the wheels on on side.

The only thing it doesn’t do is hang in the closet at your destination, but you can easily just pull out the contents and hang them as soon as you arrive. You’ll have to remove the garment bag from the main bag in order to get at your other stuff anyway. I like that this makes it harder for people to try to steal things out of your suitcase, too.

SkyRoll Toiletry Kit and Top Compartment

The suitcase also has an outer pocket and a top drawer space to store your toiletries or other small items. Rather than having to squeeze your toiletries and other items to inside edges of your suitcase, SkyRoll roller bags include the toiletry kit — a sturdy, deep bag that also includes a mesh storage area at the top (10?x6?x3?).

SkyRoll Compartments

The toiletry bag comes with a hook that can be used to hang your toiletries in your hotel’s bathroom. With this hook, there’s no need to worry about getting your toiletry bag wet on the bathroom counter, and it still keeps the bath area neat and clean.

The top compartment of the suitcase also comes with an internal padded sleeve that can hold a 15? laptop or a tablet. It stores your computer safely in your luggage without it getting damaged.

The main suitcase is where you pack other items, such as your shoes, t-shirts, undergarments, etc. The zipped opening appears to be small, but the luggage actually holds a surprising amount. When finished, clip the garment bag to the suitcase and then roll the suitcase so that the garment bag wraps around it.

I love the two pockets on the “lid” of the Spinner. I used one for my undies, and socks and/or other undergarments could go in the second. Pretty snazzy, right?

The Verdict

In my opinion, the SkyRoll Spinner is the ideal suitcase for those going on a quick trip like business travelers, cruisers, and weekend escapes. It kept my clothes nicely organized in the garment bag and prevented any wrinkles. I will definitely be taking my SkyRoll with me on my next trip.

    All my items fix perfectly in all the compartments, and the toiletry bag is an added bonus.

    This is like nothing I’ve seen before! How amazing! Looks like it would even make packing a bit enjoyable — not the unpacking…that’s another story ???? Thanks for sharing this!

    I have a lot of luggage and this suitcase caught my attention when I saw it. It’s a great bag for a short weekend trip, and I love the garment bag. I just laid all my clothes flat in the garment bag, and it was easy to unpack when I got to my hotel.

    I like the fact that you don’t need hangers, very convenient!Suze – Luxury Columnist recently posted…A Luxurious Michelin Starred Lunch: Outlaw’s at The Capital

    The clothes fits very nicely in the garment bag, once you get to your hotel you just hang them up. I believe hangers are useful but not when you’re traveling because it makes your suitcase weigh more, don’t you think?

  7. Looks awesome. I’ve seen this in an ad somewhere but Im glad to know that its really useful.anna recently posted…Guide to Planning Your Dream Trip to Vietnam

    I saw it advertised too, and was very intrigue with it from the minute I saw it. It’s the perfect solution to keep your clothes nicely organized in your garment bag.

    I just used it for a 4 day trip to the Bahamas and it was the perfect bag. It fit all my clothes nicely and I was able to pack my dresses without having to fold them. ????

  11. Jewel Eliese

    Sounds like a truly handy bag to have for those who do a lot of traveling. My husband hates flying but I bet this would make it a little less agonizing for him. Thanks.

  12. Carmen Edelson

    I bought one for my husband too. It’s great when he goes on business trips and has to pack a suit, or sports jacket. He normally wears it on the plane and it gets really wrinkle. Now he puts it in the garment bag.

  13. Jema Patterson

    Brilliant design! Of course wrapping garments is the perfect solution. I like that the bag solves other carry-on issues as well – laptop, especially!

  14. Carmen Edelson

    The laptop sleeve is wonderful! My computer weights too much and was straining my shoulder when I carried it. Now I just put it in the suitcase and roll it along.

    I absolutely love my spinner bag. I plan to take it with me to Europe and use it has a second bag.

    I was able to pack two dresses, slacks and a few blouses on my recent trip and they were all wrinkle-free when I arrived in my hotel.

  19. Laura Lynch

    Oh, it’s really convenient that it has the roll up garment bag right on it like that! That would really come in handy. I can’t stand having to get the iron out the second I arrive in a hotel.Laura Lynch recently posted…Experience a Tea Ceremony in Tokyo at Hamarikyu Gardens

  20. Carmen Edelson

    I also hate having to iron my clothes when I arrive at a hotel. Especially, if I’m traveling with a dress or evening gown for an event. This is the perfect solution!

  21. Yay to no wrinkles! I really like that its versatile, that you can choose whether or not to use the garment bag. The slip for your laptop is perfect too!Mar Pages recently posted…Geisha make-up – My experience becoming a Geisha

  22. Carmen Edelson

    It’s also very easy to roll around since the wheels go around 360 degrees. I plan on using it for my upcoming trip to Europe as a second bag.

  23. That is actually a really smart option. I’ve heard people rolling their clothes which results in no wrinkles but I was wondering how formal clothes are being transported. Thanks for sharing!

  24. Carmen Edelson

    I’ve rolled my clothes and put them in bags to save space too, but it’s difficult to roll dresses. This suitcase is great for dresses, and long sweaters that are difficult to roll.

  25. Alina Popescu

    Oh, wow, this looks fantastic! I’ve had to do a lot of long weekend trips over the past couple of years to attend author conferences and I”ve had issues finding the right carry-on. This really looks amazing, and I love how it’s compartmentalized.Alina Popescu recently posted…Millennials Share Their Tips for Working While Traveling the Globe

  26. Carmen Edelson

    If you travel quite often on short weekend trips, I highly recommend this suitcase. I have a number of suitcases in my closet but this one is versatile, hard-wearing, cost effective and has served me well in my travels.

  27. Aileen Adalid

    I’ve actually already got a TON of suitcases… BUT this kind, I don’t have yet! I’m absolutely sold on the no-wrinkles feature. Rolling helps, but a luggage like this will really minimize the wrinkles more!Aileen Adalid recently posted…Hidden Hills Villas: A Personalized Luxury Stay in Bali, Indonesia

    I have tons of suitcases as well, but this one is my favorite since I just place my clothes in the garment bag, roll it, and unpack it when I arrived.
