Garment Bags & Garment Covers
Traveling with formal or business attire? Keep special outfits looking fresh on the road with garment bags that retain a dress or suit without taking up too much space. A garment bag is a long, zippered hanging bag that makes it easy to protect your suits, dresses, and jackets everywhere you go.
From business trips and weekend weddings to everything in between, garment bags have you (and your clothes) covered. If you’re not familiar with garment bags and covers, or just not sure if one is right for you, read on to learn more about this convenient option.
Can Garment Bags Prevent Wrinkles?
Yes, when packed correctly. There’s nothing worse than traveling a long distance to your destination and opening your suitcase only to find that your neatly packed clothes have been reduced to a crumpled mess. When packing, it’s best to start off with clean, ironed clothes so that you’ll have less work when you arrive at your destination. You’ll find that some garment bags will come with built-in hangers while others will require separate hangers.
Packing clothes that remain wrinkle-free at your final destination is an art. Here are a few tips on how to pack:
- Hang the garments on hangers
- Close all the garment fasteners (zippers, buttons, etc.)
- Place a plastic dry-cleaning bag over each hanger to eliminate friction
- Carefully fasten your garment cover
Are Garment Bags Allowed as a Carry On?
While every airline is different, US airlines typically consider a garment bag as a carry-on, and not a personal item. If you’re trying to decide between a garment bag and carry-on luggage, you’ll first need to consider the type of clothing you’re packing for your trip. Formal and business attire generally require the neat, flat form of a garment bag while clothing that can simply be folded does not.
Take into account the length of the trip as well. If you’re traveling for long periods of time, a garment bag may not hold as much clothing as a carry-on bag would. No matter which option you choose, be sure to keep in mind flight and luggage size restrictions.
Different Types of Garment Bags
While every garment cover is different, they generally carry anywhere from one to six items. Let’s take a look at a few different brands and bag styles:
