      High-quality leather garment bags ensure wrinkle free clothes

      If you don't like to get wrinkles on your suits or dresses during travelling, the best for you to choose is a garment bag or travel suit bag. Normal suitcases or trolleys offer a lot of space for clothing, shoes or other things, but for delicate clothes a garment bag is what you need. A garment bag is not the same as a simple synthetic cover that protects dresses or suits from dust while they are hanging in a wardrobe. In contrast to that a garment bag is a special kind of travelling luggage. Garment bags and suit bags come in many variations offering all kinds of features. Thin garment bags made of cotton or synthetic fabrics are more suitable for short road trips because they can be placed on the bag seat or the rear shelf of a car. Others are made of robust synthetics with corner reinforcements and this garment bags are foldable. Frequent flyers should look for garment bags in boarding luggage size and made of robust nylon or genuine leather. Garment bags of this size can be used as cabin luggage and you can be sure that nothing happens to your delicate clothes during the baggage handling. Even if high-quality garment bags are very robust models you can not compare them to hard shell luggage. On the other hand a flexible outer shell has some advantages. If you do not want to pack and unpack your bag everywhere you should choose a garment bag with a place for clips. This way you can simply put your suit in your bag without taking them off their clips. Usually the full garment bag can be placed in a wardrobe too. Depending on their size garment bags can be taken on a plane as boarding luggage. Garment bags that are too huge for cabin luggage can be locked by a TSA lock to keep your things as safe as possible.
