What is the Plus 1 Foldable Travel Bag?
Hey guys! This is the first official product review that I have posted on my blog and I couldn’t be more excited to partner with Scout Bags to review the Plus 1 Foldable Travel Bag. It’s a perfect fit in my travel life… and my suitcase! The Plus 1 is my new bag in a bag. This 2-in-1 is perfectly packable, perfectly functional, AND fashionable. Not to mention, it is affordable!
Midnight in Paris
That’s the pattern I chose. Don’t you love it?! I feel like the black and white paisley gives it a sense of class. Don’t love it? There’s plenty of other patterns to choose from which you can check out (28 of them, in fact) right here. When I ordered mine, it was a toss up between Midnight in Paris and the Swimfan. Scout will even let you customize your bag with up to 10 characters!
I bet you’re asking, “What makes this bag so special?” There’s many reasons but one of my favorite things about the Plus 1 is that it fulfills it’s function and is also a bag that I enjoy carrying on it’s own. Unless your willing to spend an arm and a leg, it seems like you’re always sacrificing one or the other when it comes to practical and versatile travel gear, but this one really has it all and for a great price!
The second thing I love about it is the space. I’m not sure what I expected size-wise but I was really impressed once I got it unfolded! Unpacked from it’s pouch, the bag dimensions are 22.5″Wx14.5″Hx7″D making it a perfect weekender bag. The little pouch then buttons in to hold all of your smaller items together. Another use I have found for the pouch is that it is perfect to carry down to the pool or the beach to hold a few items like my phone, sunscreen, room key, etc.
So, it is functional and fashionable, but is it lightweight? If you travel often, you know how important this one thing is. If nothing else matters, THIS matters. Luggage space is prime real estate and a suitcase is almost literally worth it’s weight in gold considering baggage fees these days. As a matter of fact, the whole reason I pack a bag in my bag is because I know I will need to carryon some of my heavier items I’ve accrued along the way to avoid baggage fees at the airport.
The answer to your question: YES! The quilted poly twill fabric is super lightweight and takes up very little space once folded up into it’s designated pouch.
The Final Verdict
Head over to scoutbags.com and pick your pattern right now! You won’t regret it. For just $39.50, the Plus 1 Foldable Travel Bag is definitely a winner!
