As luggage brands like Away popularize clever interior organizational tools, and packing cubes get ever more popular and versatile, Travelpro is getting in on the smart packing act with its new Versapack luggage.
Available in both international (small) and American (large, natch) carry-on sizes, as well as a few checked bags that are less interesting (for reasons we’ll get into soon), the key gimmick of the Versapack line is its suite of optional zip-in organizers. They attach to the otherwise-mostly-useless inner lid of the suitcase, and provide a more orderly way to arrange common travel items.
Every bag includes a basic zip-in garment organizer, but you can unzip it and swap it out for any of these four optional organizers (sold separately):
- Laundry Organizer: A waterproof pouch to separate wet and dirty clothes from the stuff you don’t want to wash when you get home. (International | Max)
- Packing Cubes Organizer: Features two half-length packing cubes on one side for casual shirts, shorts, socks, and underwear, plus a full-sized garment pocket on the reverse side for larger items that you don’t want to wrinkle. (International | Max)
- All-In-One Organizer: Similar in function to the Packing Cubes organizer, but the two front pockets are divided lengthwise, and one of them is water resistant for holding toiletries or laundry. (International | Max)
- Suiter Organizer: Only available for the Max carry-on size, it’s basically a fancy suiter bag that zips into the lid of the suitcase. It features padded roll bars to reduce wrinkling on a standard sized suit.
In theory, this means you could basically redesign your suitcase based on the type of trip you’re taking. Going to the beach? Bring the laundry insert along for wet and sandy clothes. Business meeting? Zip in the suiter. Of course, since the organizers are all sold separately, that could get expensive quickly.
As for the suitcases themselves...they’re modern Travelpro Crew rollers, which is a good thing! They feature excellent wheels, great customer support, a premium feel, and even modern touches like a passthrough USB battery pack pocket that’ll keep your phone charged without breaking any TSA regulations. They’re also available in four different colors, and the new Patriot Blue colorway is the best looking design Travelpro’s ever come out with.
The bags are also available in larger checked bag sizes, but the zip-in organizers are not, inexplicably. Travelpro suggests you just set them free-floating in the main compartment, at which point you’d probably be better off buying less expensive packing cubes and laundry bags.
