Luv my Ugobag


It just came in the mail – well really Fed Ex sitting by the front door and I was like a little kid in a candy store. Funny I haven’t been this excited about anything in a while, let alone a suitcase! Yes you heard me a suitcase – I’ve held off in trying to find just the right hand carry on to bring on my trips. I’ve been looking for something cool and distinctive and the Ugobag was just what I wanted.

A new player in the luggage market – Ugobag’s are the ultimate in customized suitcases to fit your requirements and aesthetic. It’s funny, I was totally giddy over the thought of creating my look and details and isn’t that what it is all about in travel, all the details? The bags are customizable with your own artwork, text or logo including any personalized details that you want to add to create your own bag vibe.

First thing I noticed is how large and beautiful the imagery turned out on the design element, it practically takes up a large part on one side of the bag. Also, since the image submitted was a high-resolution file, the blown up image was still nice and sharp which really impressed me. Another nice surprise is how light the bag is, it doesn’t seem to weigh anything close to my other hand carry bags. This is fantastic considering the heavy hand carry items I typically bring which includes all my cameras, computer and other electronic items.

All the details I requested were actually done to a T and there were also some wonderful features including:

* Four spinner wheels

* Fully lined and compartmentalized interior

* Lightweight but tough polycarbonate surface

* telescoping handle

*protecting bumper guards on edges

*TSA locker

This is such a unique concept and I am really happy with this luggage overall.  I think if you are looking to create a statement with your luggage, then it’s a minimal investment to buy your Ugobag.  Want to have one of these cool bags, check out their link on their Kickstarter page here.

    Great concept! I, for one, shall be utilising this when my re-brand takes effect. Only problem, I don’t think they ship Internationally (to Europe) – but will find out!

    What a cool concept! I love that it’s so colorful and lightweight – that helps with all the weight restrictions. I’ll have to check it out. I’m in the market for a new carry on that doesn’t tip forward. So annoying to have my laptop in the front pocket and playing catch to prevent it from being crushed.

      Hi Elaine,

      It’s a great concept and a wonderful way to publicize your brand, definitely check it out.

    Great advertising for your blog! Looks like an awesome suitcase. If I ever make the switch from backpack to suitcase, I’ll check them out. I’m sure my back will thank me for it!

    So cool! You will never need to look for your bag at the airport now, no one will have a similar one. I hope this business is successful! I’m a backpack girl, though…

    I’m hoping this Kickstarter campaign is a success (which it seems like it is!)
    These seem great!

    Oh my goodness! Such a cool idea. You can showcase your pictures as you travel, AND without getting all your gadgets out to do it too!

    such a cool idea – will have to start deciding what picture i want on my case 😉

    I would love a customized suitcase! Looks like they’re doing great on their campaign so hopefully they’ll become more widespread. I’d love a Mytanfeet one with our feet logo!

    Very nice carry-on that should protect the cameras & lenses. The branding is a great kicker – your own blog billboard while you travel!

    Cool. Never heard of it before. It´s awesome you can put your website name to it and it has four wheels. That´s a must to me.

    Looks light and very safe if you carry something fragile…I wonder what the price is though..

    I luv your Ugo bag too Noel:) How cool is that, what a fabulous concept. Great marketing for you, and no fear of confusing your luggage with someone elses. I am seriously considering one of these. Delighted to know about them, thanks Noel.

    A novel way to advertise your site and a great way to make it easy to identify your luggage. They’ve already reached their pledge goal of $25,000 so it seems like there could be the interest and demand out there.

    Looks like a great bag! We used to have Ugobag but I’m not sure where it is now.

    P.S. Sumbitted a story to Travel Photo Monday 🙂

    Looks very practical and stylish – if it’s lightweight as well that’s ideal for travelling!

  16. Bob R May 25, 2014 at 7:00 am #

    Precisely how big is it and how much does it weigh? It’s hard to tell from the pics.

    • Noel May 25, 2014 at 7:09 am #

      It is probably about 6 pounds, quite light and it fits hand carry luggage requirements international and domestic (US)

    What a great idea! I’m not surprised you got excited – so would I! I see that they have the backing they need through Kickstarter which is great news. Hopefully they cases will be avaiable in the UK too before too long! I hope their business is a roaring success.

I look forward to hearing from you and continuing our discussion with any comment you would like to add
