Finding the Perfect Bag for Traveling

It has always been difficult to find a bag for traveling especially if you are traveling for work. You can’t just throw in your gadgets and important documents in your luggage. For short travels, I just use a backpack but for longer travels or out of the country trips, I bring a luggage. I had different travel bag brands but nothing really suit my fancy because most of them don’t have enough protection for my gadgets. I usually bring my SLR, my mirrorlesscamera, my GoPro and my laptop—allbecause I still have to work during my trips. SoI was looking for a bag that can protect my gadgets but is also functional to store my other travel essentials or a “Business Travel”Bag as they may call it.

Samsonite has been known to be one of the best travel bag brands in the market. Recently, Samsonite collaborated with Giovanni Gastel to create ten business personalities for Business Travelers.Giovanni Gastel is an iconic Photographer and Artist that shares the same passion of creating. The collaboration has bags that address the needs of a Business Traveler or anyone who is always on-the-go without sacrificing elegance, style, and comfort.

If you like backpacks and want protection for your laptop, iPad, and important documents then the Torus Backpack will be your perfect travel companion.

The Torus Backpack comes in different colors. You can choose a color that suits your personality. What’s special about it is that, it has cushioned compartments that will safeguard your gadgets and other important items.

The laptop compartment is actually a sleeve with a fleece interior for additional protection for your laptop. The iPad compartment has the same material to protect the screen of the gadget itself.


There are also a number of pockets on the bag so you can have easy access to the things you will need. There are three pockets in front, one on each side of the bag and another at the back for documents. The bag also has a flab on the back so you can insert it on the handle of your trolley or luggage.


My favorite line from Samsonite’s collaboration with Giovanni Gastel is the GT Supreme.

The GT Supreme Series is inspired by the automobile industry with its look of masculinity, style, and luxury. The bags from the series have leather accents and gunmetal finish. One thing really special about the GT Supreme is its RFID protected pocket. This RFID feature is designed to protect your credit cards or ATM from RFID skimming that can copy or clone your personal and bank records.

If you like most of your stuff checked in and you’d like to bring a small bag just for your wallet, passport, and mobile devices then the GT Supreme Tablet Crossover is perfect for you. This is a perfect everyday bag if you only need to bring a few items.


Samsonite’s GT Supreme Tablet Crossover can fit up to 7” tablets or mobile phones. It’s just the right size for your valuables and can serve as your carry-on during flights.The front pocket holds the RFID protected pocket where you can place your credit cards. On the inside is an attached sleeve where you can place your tablet or mobile phone.


Laptops are very expensive, and having a bag that can store and protect it is pretty important.The GT Supreme Bailhandle 2C is something that you have to check out.


The Bailhandle 2C can fit a laptop of up to 15.6” and is expandable. There is also a small fleeced pocket for your tablet and other extra compartments for smaller accessories and travel essentials.


The bag has an easy access pocket for your keys and phones in front. It also has an RFID Protected Pocket in the front side and an easy access pocket at the back where you can store extra documents.

Traveling wouldn’t be complete without a nice trolley. The GT Supreme has the Rolling Tote which is perfect for frequent business travelers.


The Rolling Tote is just the right sizefor carry-on luggage. This is also a very convenient bag to carry around during back-to-back meetings.


Following the GT Supreme technology, the Rolling Tote also has and RFID Protected Pocket on one of the front pockets, giving you easy access to your cards. There is also a small pocket where you can store small valuables like mobile phones and keys.


The laptop compartment can fit up to 16.4”laptops and there is a detachable tablet carrier bag for your extra gadget.

There is a cross ribbon compartment on the second main pocket where you can place your clothes and other travel essentials. This feature is a deal breaker because most travelers look for value for money—which you can find in the Rolling Tote. It is a two-in-one bag where you can place all that you need for both business and leisure.


Samsonite, the leader in luggage technology, has been a brand synonymous to travel. Since 1910 it has been offering bags to those who want to see the world, giving comfort and high quality products to travelers all around the world.
