Carry-On Made Easy
Travel inspires and helps us to understand people and other cultures. Travel takes us to faraway places; to simply visit relatives; to see the world. For as long as we’ve traveled, there has been our extra travel companion, like it or not, called “luggage”. Starting back with a “travel chest” (on a steamship and/or stage coach); then onto extra large suitcases and to where we are now (crazy for carry-on). If you have elite status with your favorite airline, chances are you have “free” first bag or 2, priority baggage (first on the baggage carousel when you land) along with priority check-in. If you don’t have elite status or you are on a shorter trip, chances are you prefer carry-on.
While it’s great to travel, and to look forward to travelling, the worst part (at least for me) is packing. I dread packing. But I’ve just come across the answer to my packing prayers- The Slicks Flexible Travel System. It has it all. It’s a backpack and briefcase combined into a carry-on.
I’ve got the Slicks Biz Bundle. It combines backpack, trip cover, wash bag and suitcover in one. It’s the Swiss Army knife of luggage!
The Slicks Pack is super sturdy and can be a back pack or a briefcase (store the back straps in the pack and use the side handles). The back pack on its own is perfect for trips to and from the office or campus.
The Trip cover is the wardrobe bag that attaches inside the Pack and has a place for the wash bag, laundry bag (included) and room for underwear, socks, shirts, etc. It also includes a shirt cover to keep shirts folded and not wrinkled.
The suit cover can fold 4 times to keep your suit or nice outfit wrinkle free and attaches inside the Pack as well.

This modular backpack/suitcase has a place for everything and everything in its place. It will keep you away from the baggage carousel (worth the price alone) and keep you well organized. With all of its components and accessories, it provides great value. It’s carry-on heaven!
- Looks great, well designed
- Carry On
- Perfect for a weekend away or 3-day trip
- Not enough room for a weeklong trip or more than 3 days
- Not ideal for checked baggage (but not what it’s meant for either)
All in all, a great piece of luggage and I highly recommend it. If you are interested in getting Slicks luggage, go to the Slicks website for more information and to order direct. And here’s my Promotion Code that will save you 10% at checkout – MarkTravelSlicks (valid until April 30, 2018).
