Genius Pack High Altitude Flight Bag – Product Review


Genius Pack High Altitude Flight Bag

The Genius Pack High Altitude Flight Bag is a novel new product. It is a cross between a tablet sleeve and a traditional laptop bag customized for people who travel.

I used the Genius Pack High Altitude Flight Bag on a recent work trip to the U.K.

I have two challenges when choosing and packing a bag that fits the current “purse, briefcase or small tote” rules:
1. Selecting a bag that’s big enough for phone, laptop or tablet, charges and personal items (wallet, lip balm, hand cream and the like).
2. Selecting a bag that’s small enough to fit under the seat in front of me while leaving enough space for my feet.

[You’ll notice that I don’t include any reference to style. I appear to be particularly lacking in that area but the Genius Pack High Altitude Flight Bag is a smart-looking little bag.]

I found the Genius Pack High Altitude Flight Bag handy with respect to the challenges mentioned above. Everything I had with me fit neatly into the labeled pockets with plenty of room for my bits and bobs – and the labels gave me confidence that I hadn’t forgotten anything in my inevitable rush out the door.

On board my flight to Dallas-Fort Worth (Boeing 737-800), I used the Velcro straps to attach the bag to the seat-back table giving me easy access to everything in the bag and every inch of available legroom. Sweet! When the table was down the bag remained attached like a cushion on my knees.

Unfortunately, on my next flight (747-300) the tray-table was of an unusual half-fold kind that did not work for this bag. However the petit dimensions of the bag are such that I was able to place it under the seat in front of me but against the seat leg leaving a reasonable amount of legroom.

For me, the true proof of usefulness of a new product is if I find myself recommending it to friends and family. Here’s an interaction I had with a friend just a couple of days ago:
Him: “I’m off to Beijing Monday, got any tips for me to help me make sure I don’t forget important things – like my passport?”
Me: “You need a Genius Pack High Altitude Flight Bag. The labeled pockets are a lifesaver – especially for last-minute have-I-got-everything checks”.

Enough said.

The bag I used was provided to me by Genius Pack at no charge. All opinions expressed above are my own.

About wandermom

". . .life is short and the world is wide" - Simon Raven I'm not sure I've ever consciously planned a trip based on this sentiment, but it definitely influences my subconscious! I've been traveling as frequently and widely as possible since I finished school. And I love it. I love the research, the planning, the fervent packing and the curiosity of exploring somewhere I've never been before. My husband & I are both Irish - as in born-in-Ireland. But we live in Seattle. We have two boys: wild, boisterous, regular boys. So, since becoming a Mom, I've been a WanderMom. Given our slightly-unusual family situation, routine "visits-to-Grandma" are international trips requiring passports, 10hr-flights and (oh joy!) airport transfers. I have rants, raves and opinions about how, where & why to travel with kids (start them as young as you can, I say!). I hope to learn even more by researching topics which other wandermoms may be interested in reading about on this blog. Passports, pacifiers, diapers and gameboys at the ready - off we go!
