15 Years Going Strong - My Favorite Suitcase

15 Years Going Strong - My Favorite Suitcase

Where ever you find me when I travel, you find my favorite ultimate suitcase, the MEI Convertible.  It has become my trusty travel companion and I highly recommend it.  I have had this bag for over 15 years, with nary a tear or scuff.

Why do I like this bag so much?  

It converts to a comfortable backpack with a waist-belt and shoulder pads. I have walked miles with this pack.  You can stow the straps away and use the side shoulder strap or handle to change the bag to a standard suitcase.

It is small and malleable – fitting under your seat on nearly any plane or on overhead rack on a bus.  It fits smaller adults, such as me, quite well.  I recommend it for adventure cruises where space is minimal such as on our Turquoise Coast Odyssey

The MEI convertible bag is high-quality, USA-made by a small company in California, Genuine Gear.  It seems to be impervious to damage even after months and months of non-stop use in the most remote and dirty destinations!  

It is easy to organize without too many pockets.  I put books in one front pocket and valuable items in the other than secure the pocket with a small combination lock.  The smaller pockets are great for papers, cords and small items you would like easy access to.

Finally, the cost is low at $100.  

If you are looking for a convenient, quality bag, try MEI.  Even my cat likes my bag.  She tried to go with me on my last trip to India, but had to stay home.  

Happy Travels!
