Personally, I like to travel solely with a carry on and no additional checked baggage, if I can help it. With just a carry on, it makes getting in and out of an airport quick and painless. The trickiest part is being able to efficiently pack everything you need within the constraints of airport rules.
As someone with slightly sensitive skin, I find myself trying my best to stay within the 3-1-1 rule for fluids. I carry a see-through mesh makeup bag full of my skincare products so that I don’t have to transfer everything into a plastic bag as I go through TSA. Traditionally, with my previous single-compartment carry on, I would be fishing through all my belongings to try to find this makeup bag at TSA since it would end up swimming its way to the bottom of the bag after being rolled from one end to the other of the airport. This Baggallini Getaway Roller has a front compartment that not only fits my laptop, but also the makeup bag so that it’s easy to access all the items that need to be taken out and placed in the trays at TSA.
The other thing that I absolutely love about this roller bag is how smooth the rollers are! With my previous roller bag, the wheels only rolled on one axis. With this Getaway Roller, the wheels are mounted on smooth swivels so that you can pivot easily between directions. I posted this video to demonstrate the smooth swivel, which was amazing when trying to dodge people on the way to my gate. This roller easily does a 360 turn, unlike my previous bag which only rolled forward or backwards on a single axis.
After such a positive experience with this roller, I decided to do some more digging into the brand. To no surprise, Baggallini was started by a pair of former flight attendants who not only understood the importance of organization of bags when traveling, but saw the need for creating fashionable travel companions. Can’t wait to take this roller on the next trip!!
