What size secondary bags or items can the Travel Bag Buddy secure to my primary luggage?
The strap is both adjustable and elastic. The smallest bags it can fit are about 20" in circumference, with the largest being over 45" in circumference. This is big enough to fit all legal carry on size bags for all major airlines. Strap in your backpack, purse, duffel and more!
Will the Travel Bag Buddy fit my tall backpack?
Although the strap can stretch to accommodate a tall backpack vertically, we suggest placing it sideways on your rolling luggage for better weight distribution.
If my bag is taller than my handle, will the Travel Bag Buddy stay secured?
Yes! The Travel Bag Buddy secures your bag to the wrap around panel. This allows you to secure a secondary bag that is taller than your handle without having to continuously hold it like a bungee chord would need.
Can I secure more than one item with the Travel Bag Buddy?
Yes! You can secure as many items as the strap will allow with your configuration. A favorite third item of ours to put on top of the secondary bag is a coat during the winter. It's nice to not have to worry about being hot or carrying it when you're traveling and out of the cold.
What is the difference between the Travel Bag Buddy PRO and Standard versions?
FUNCTIONALITY: The Travel Bag Buddy PRO and Standard both have the same useful functionalities. They are both RFID shielded travel organizers, allowing you to secure a second bag to the top of your luggage and a modular design which allows the wrap-around panel to detach and convert into a convenient RFID crossbody/sling.
MATERIALS: The Standard and the PRO are both made from durable high quality materials you will find in many backpacks and suitcases. They share the same strong adjustable elastic straps and buckle.
PRO: The PRO is made from an 840D Ballistic Nylon outer, with 210d light grey nylon for the inner lining. There are also vegan leather accents on the base and inner pocket trimming. The PRO has a soft non-scratch microfiber lined pocket as well. The PRO has all YKK zippers and pulls.
STANDARD: The Standard’s outer material is made from 420D Ballistic Nylon. The inner lining is made of 210d light grey nylon. The zipper pull on the Standard’s front pocket is made from Hypalon.
POCKETS: Both versions have similar pockets and storage. The PRO has an additional soft non-scratch microfiber lined pocket and an extra pen/stylus pocket. Ultimately we love them both and the decision should be which you feel will work best for your needs. You can see additional detailed images of the PRO and the Standard pockets on the product pages.
What is the small panel with a zipper for?
The crossbody conversion panel attaches with a zipper to the outer back panel zipper of the Travel Bag Buddy and velcros on the backside. It prevents the velcro from sticking to your clothing and provides another useful RFID shielded pocket!
Why are there two zippers on the back panel?
The two zippers are for attaching the Luggage wrap-around panel. You can use the inner zipper for most rolling luggage panels, and the outer zipper if your suitcase has a wider panel.
Will the Travel Bag Buddy fit my rolling luggage handle?
The Travel Bag Buddy will fit handles with a circumference between 11" and 18". This will work on almost all suitcases, except those with single pole handles which do not give the panel the support needed. If you have a specific question about it fitting on your suitcase, please feel free to contact us directly.
Why are the Travel Bag Buddy pockets not centered on my rolling luggages handle?
The Travel Bag Buddy has a hidden fold on the back. If yours is not aligned after you put it around the handle, simply move it to the right or left until it aligns correctly.
Is the organizer Fully RFID protected?
Yes! The entire organizer is RFID shielded from electronic theft; even the front zipper pocket.
Can I use the Travel Bag Buddy without a secondary bag?
Yes! The Travel Bag Buddy's straps fold into the panel and will stay secured with the elastic strap as the folding instructions at the bottom of the product page shows. Once secured inside you can use it on your handle as an organizer either alone, or even above a bag that has an existing pass through sleeve.
How do I clean my Travel Bag Buddy?
The Travel Bag Buddy is made with water resistance Ballistic Nylon, ripstop nylon, and standard nylon. All of the materials are easy to clean by simply wiping them down with a damp rag to remove any dirt or dust.
