G-RO: Smart Luggage for the Savvy Traveler

A great piece of luggage is a MUST for every traveler. Seriously, there’s nothing worse than buying bag after bag because they keep falling apart. Fortunately, I was introduced to some of the best luggage that will soon hit the market. G-RO, “the most funded luggage campaign in crowdfunding history”, launched a Kickstarter campaign featuring the newest additions to the luggage family.

Recently, I had the pleasure of visiting the G-RO office to check out the luggage in person. As I was introduced to each piece, I was more and more impressed. The workmanship, design, innovation, and quality of materials are unrivaled at this price. If you backed the first G-RO Kickstarter campaign, you know what I mean. If you’ve never heard of them, stick around. *Update: This Kickstarter campaign has ended but you can still shop the 2018 G-RO collection.

The Check-In

G-Ro Check in

The Check-In is THE coolest piece of luggage. I wish I was on team #CheckedLuggage because I would love to use this bag. For those who love to pack it all and schlep it across the globe, this is the bag for you. It’s incredibly roomy and lightweight despite its size, it has multiple, dual handles for convenience, bumpers for protection, a special section for shoes away from the main compartment, mesh dividers to keep things organized, and it expands and has compression straps. Wheew, that’s a lot but, seriously, this is one amazing bag!

Key Features:

  • Spacious expandable interior (86L to 96L)
  • External shoe pocket
  • Signature axle-less tough terrain wheels
  • Compression straps
  • Multiple handles for easy carrying
  • Comes with a TILE Bluetooth Tracker
  • Measures 14 in x 16.5 in x 28.5 in
The Office

G-RO The Office

This is an everyday “commuter companion bag” that has multiple uses. Use it during the week to hold files, folders, and all of your important company items. On the weekends, pack it up for a quick getaway because it can hold 2 days worth of clothing. With multiple compartments for all of your essential items, the Office is perfect for everyone.

Key Features:

  • Padded waterproof 15″ laptop compartment
  • Spacious interior compartment for daily commuter items
  • Hybrid material design of polycarbonate and lightweight fabrics
  • Signature axle-less tough terrain wheels
  • Multiple easy access pockets for organized packing
  • Comes with a TILE Bluetooth Tracker Measures 16″ x 9″ x 16″
The Backpack XV

G-RO Backpack XV

I loved this backpack because I knew it would be perfect for the hubs. This bag has so many cool features that I won’t be able to list them all. Here’s a quick rundown: a protective spot for (sun)glasses and another for foldable headphones, mesh dividers so you can see all your stuff, it opens partially or a full 180 degrees, it has adjustable chest straps, 2 expansion zippers, and compression straps to keep it all under control. The best feature, according to my husband, is the luggage strap. For some reason, most backpacks don’t have them so he’s stoked about being able to pop the Backpack XV on his luggage handle. If you’re looking for a backpack that’s a little more rugged and ideal for taking with you into the great outdoors, perhaps for going camping with, you may want to check out the products from Bass Pro Shops where you can find this and more. If you’re looking to save some money, why not take a look at this helpful site which has coupons and promo codes to help you get a reduction on your favorite products.

Key Features:

  • Dual 180 ° openings
  • Easy access laptop compartment allowing you to access your laptop from the top or either side of the bag without unpacking
  • Thoughtfully designed interior pockets for organized packing
  • Comes with a TILE Bluetooth Tracker
  • Measures 12 in x 5.5 in (11 in expanded) x 18 in
The Backpack Light

G-RO Backpack Light

This is, by far, my favorite piece because it solves two issues I’ve faced during my travels. Issue #1, I need something I can use as my “personal item” on the airplane. This bag is roomy and organized with several internal pockets and a padded laptop compartment which is perfect for a carryon. Issue #2, I need a “day bag” when I’m exploring my destination and this bag is sleek and lightweight so it won’t be a pain in the neck to carry for long periods. Also, just like each of the bags, it comes with a power pack and charging capabilities.

Key Features:

  • Lightweight construction
  • 13 in padded laptop compartment
  • Water protected external USB charging port
  • “No fishing” design with wide-mouthed opening
  • Comes with a TILE Bluetooth Tracker
  • Measures 11 in x 5.5 in x 15 in
