With the right amount of space and the lightweight aspects of Lo & Sons’s design, the O.G. overnight bag quickly became my go-to carry-on bag.

Picking the right carry-on bag, for myself, has always been a challenge of finding the balance between function and design. By function, I look for dividers to organize my travel accessories. For design, I look for a bag that is sleek, stylish, and isn’t your typical airplane bag. The O.G. overnight is exactly both.

Lo & Sons won me over, around three years ago when I got my first crossbody named the Pearl. Now a household staple, Lo & Sons has kept me prepared for travels across the world. The company has a very sweet, family story of how the brand came about. Helen Lo (mom) was looking for the right bag for her travels, one that was easy to carry, organized, and not overpriced. Out of this, her two sons took her vision to production, and thus we have Lo & Sons. A brand dedicated to helping travelers to be prepared for their journeys, to travel light, and have durable, stylish bags.

So why is the O.G. the ultimate in design and function for an overnight bag?

Here are the four factors that won me over

  • First and foremost, the back sleeve. This little sleeve allows you to put it right onto your suitcase, so no more carrying a heavy bag through the airport and hurting your back.
  • Pockets — like you’ve never seen before. Both inside and out, these dividing pockets have allowed me to be organized. In the front, I am able to fit my accessories I reach to most, like phone and passport. Inside the big pocket, there are sections for computer, papers, make-up bag, and a change of clothes.
  • The shoe pocket! One of my favorite little secret spots in the O.G. is the shoe compartment. On the side of the bag you can slide in a pair of flats or heels to change into.
  • A padded compartment that fits a 13-inch laptop.

Getting prepared for a trip, I always lay out every thing I will pack into my airplane bag. Here’s a list of everything I was able to fit into my O.G.:

  • Passport & wallet
  • One book, notebook, & pen
  • Sweater & change of shoes
  • Laptop & charger
  • Beauty bag with all essentials
  • Reading glasses

After trying multiple carry-on’s, I now can travel with confidence that I have a bag that suits everything I look for in design and function. A bag that is durable, well-made, and functional.

PS — Are You Booking a Trip Soon? Use My Booking Checklist!

These are the sites I use most to book my own trips. Using the links below is a great way to support Bon Traveler’s travel journalism at no extra cost to you. If you need help organizing your itinerary, get my free travel itinerary template here.

1. Book Your Flights

Use Skyscanner to find the best flights. It searches 100s of airlines and websites across the globe to ensure you’re not missing out on any route options or deals.

2. Book Your Accommodations

Use for hotels and guest houses. They have the biggest inventory and consistently offer the best rates.

3. Book Your Tours & Experiences

Use Viator or Get Your Guide to find the best tours and experiences. They are my favorite tour search engines. I always check both as their inventory varies depending on the destination.

4. Book Your Car

Use Discover Cars or to find the best car rental deals. I recommend comparing rental agency reviews on Google to ensure you are booking with the best company in that destination, as the reviews are often more accurate than the car rental search engines.

5. Don’t Forget Airport Lounge Access

Get a Priority Pass membership to gain access to 1,400+ VIP lounges and airport experiences worldwide. The Priority Pass app is the first thing I check when I have a layover. I’ve been a member for over a decade, and having a comfortable place to relax before and between flights makes air travel so much more enjoyable.

6. Don’t Forget Travel Insurance

I never leave the country without travel insurance. It provides comprehensive protection in case anything goes wrong (ie. illness, injury, theft, and cancelations, etc.). I use it frequently for my travels to stay protected.

My favorite companies that offer the best coverage and rates are:
