Biaggi 20-inch foldlable

The Biaggi 20-inch foldable open and closed

11/1/13 We have a winner!!!

Congratulations to Sherry Butcher!

Thanks to everyone who entered.

The Biaggi 20-inch foldable Contempo carry-on bag is the perfect solution if you’re short of space, either at home or at your travel destination. Who isn’t?

If the closets at your apartment or house are bursting at the seams, you’ll appreciate that the bag is easy to stow in small places. It folds flat (making if half its original size) so it can be self-contained into its own nylon tote. If you are planning on taking it with you on a cruise, it’s slim enough to slip under your bed or to store someplace else out of the way.

What’s especially nice is that no compromises were made for this added convenience in terms of the good looks or functionality of the bag.

What I love about the bag 

4-wheel spinner system

Once you have a bag with 4-wheels, you are forever spoiled. It’s so much easier to move through busy airports. You can roll it beside you rather than behind you. This is great for the over-50 traveler who is worried about putting stress on their back or arms.

Attractive durable nylon fabric

The material is durable and lightweight with a padded lining and reinforced corner guards. It comes in a range of attractive colors to complement or contrast with whatever else you are carrying.

Lots of compartments inside and out

It’s always helpful to keep things organized (especially since your case is likely to be looked at by airport security personnel). This one has a zippered panel and two mesh compartments inside, and two zippered storage pockets outside for things you need easy access to.

Easy to handle   

The bag weighs about seven pounds. It has cushioned top and side handles to make it easier to lift and store in an overhead compartment.

What I wish the bag had 

Before using this bag I was used to a carry-on with a pocket deep enough to hold my laptop. These pockets are shorter than that but I realized my laptop is probably safer inside the bag. 


THE GIVEAWAY

To enter simply choose the color of the bag you would like to win and enter it in the comment section below. The bag comes in black, brown, purple, aqua and red.

The winner will be randomly chosen on November 1. Only open to residents of the continental United States. 


Contest ends October 31, 2013. 

Priced at about $219.99, this Biaggi carry-on is available directly from the manufacturer (with free ground shipping), on Amazon or from other retailers.

    What a clever idea for a bag. I love any luggage that is both light in weight and easy to store. I’d choose red – easier to spot on the luggage carousel!

    I like the fact that it folds flat for storage and that it has extra room at the bottom because the iron structure is on the outside. Seems very practical for someone who travels as much as I do. Please save the aqua color for me!

    I used to have a black roll-aboard. So did everyone else. I started buying red (and so did lot’s of other travelers). If I am lucky enough to win, I’d like fuschsia, because I don’t see too many of those.

    Aqua all the way. And I hope I win because this would be the perfect gift for my 83 year old mother. She has loads of crap, so needs things that don’t take up much space, AND it only weighs 7 pounds, so she could manage it herself. Fingers crossed. Thanks for making me aware of this bag.
