The Ogio Layover Bag is the perfect travel companion for short trips and weekend getaways.

Specialized luggage and gear bag brand Ogio has introduced some updated products for fall/winter seasons. Its products make use of a savvy design that helps people travel with an elevated level of comfort and style. The Ogio Layover Bag is an efficiently-sized luggage option for those who travel lightly or a weekend getaway.
The Layover Bag weighs eight pounds empty and measures just less than two feet long, is 14-inches wide and 10-inches tall. It’s designed to fit precisely in a commercial airliner’s overhead storage compartment making it the perfect piece of carry-on luggage. It makes use of a stout chassis that rolls silently on a pair of urethane wheels. A telescopic pull handle is located on the top of the bag for added convenience.

The exterior is constructed out of a thick water and stain resistant fabric that helps protect the contents. Multiple grab handles and three zippered pockets allow for added accessibility and ease of transport. A heavy-duty main zipper exposes the interior of the bag. Additionally a smart expansion zipper expands the size (height) of the bag to accommodate larger items.

The Ogio Layover Bag offers a very solid construction and multiple separate zippered storage pockets. It also fits perfectly into the overhead bin space off most commercial aircraft.

Inside there are two separate perforated and zippered storage compartments built into the top flap. Below is the main storage area that houses fabric straps to keep items in place when on the move. The inner area is lined with a special plastic lining that helps keep your cargo dry. The Layover Bag offers up to 2800 cubic inches of cargo capacity and comes with lifetime limited warranty against any defects. It’s available in four colorways at a retail price of $219.99.
