Lug® + Packing Apps: The Perfect Pair

Ahh...the art of packing.  We understand packing is second nature for frequent travellers but when you’re travelling to a new place, or taking your first family vacation, it’s easy to forget essential items.

Lug® provides some of the coolest gear that can get you packed and organized such as our colorful luggage belts and tags to smart storage solutions like the Cargo 5pc Packing Kit and Clearview Envelopes to travel savvy toiletry and cosmetic cases – Lug® has got you covered!

But with great packing gear you still need your checklists of what to bring on your trip.  We strolled the web to find the most useful packing apps that will perfectly pair with your Lug® gear.  Who doesn't want a more organized approach to travel?

Check out these useful apps that make packing simple!

The Stow app – the modern packing list!  Stow makes packing lists easy by letting you choose between a great set of templates to give you a starting point. You can even make your own templates for types of trips you take regularly.  Stow lists are intelligent and can auto adjust to your trip dates and the people you’re packing for.  If you're going on a long trip and plan to do laundry, you can also set the number of days worth of clothes you want to bring.  And if the meteorologist predicts it will be hot, cold, rainy, or snowy, Stow's "pack for weather" feature makes it easy to figure out just what you'll need for the conditions.

The Packing Pro app – never forget to pack anything again!  For less than the cost of a (forgotten) toothbrush or pair of socks – not to mention the time and hassle of buying a replacement on your trip – this app can be your very own personal packing assistant.  If you desire better syncing and sharing options, display customization, a super-sized catalog, twice as many sample lists, and additional, built-in Expert assistance, then Packing Pro is the way to go.

The Mammut Packing List app – plan some unforgettable outdoor adventures with your friends!  Compile your packing list, share it with your friends, and start packing. The team works together to gather all the necessary equipment, making sure that nothing is forgotten. Once you've ticked off all the items on the list, the tour can begin!

So now that you know what to pack, take a peek at our wheelie bags or weekender bags – snap one up for your next trip and you’ll cruise through airports with ease.  For long hauls, don’t forget your Nap Sac or Snuz Sac to make catching zzz a breeze!!

Flip-Top Makes Chatelaine's "15 Top-Notch Travel Bags"

Woohoo! Our Flip-Top is famous! It was just chosen in Chatelaine Magazine's list of the "15 top-notch travel bags we love!" How cool is that? (A: Very, very.) The editors love how this toiletry case is really a two-for—you know, two bags in one. You can carry each compartment separately, or cinch them together for double the toiletry-stashing capacity.

Ami Gets enRoute!

Check it out, y'all! Ami is featured in the latest issue of enRoute, Air Canada's in-flight travel magazine.

See the rest of the story here, or, better yet, take an impromptu vacation via Air Canada, and pick up the magazine in your seat back!

Go, Ami, go!

Back-to-School by Lug

It's that time of year again—time to dust off those No. 2 pencils, don your most stylish first-day duds, and head back to school. While we may not be able to help you choose the perfect shoes to match that blouse, we do have the perfect bags and accessories to make sure you're head of the class! With Lug, preparing for the school year is as easy as 1-2-3!

Step one, pick a brilliant Backpack. The Outfielder ... no, the Sprout ... no, the Outfielder ... Okay, okay, choosing one would be like picking a favorite child—just impossible. These two are both so good, you're going to have to decide for yourself.
Outfielder: The exterior houses six pockets—including a soft-lined pouch for your iPad/tablet and cargo pockets for your charger and cords—plus our signature hidden water bottle compartment. And that’s just the outside!

Sprout: With three carrying options (yes, it’s got backpack straps; shorter tote straps; and a removable, fully adjustable messenger strap), the Sprout Carry-All is a superstar. But it’s not just the straps that make the Sprout special.

Step two, love your lunch. It's as easy as picking the Pedals Lunch Tote. Done and done. Here are the deets:

The insulated interior keeps food cool, while the exterior pocket stores utensils and keeps condensation from soaking your napkin.

Step three, keep supplies corralled with our Bento Box 3pc Storage Container Set.

We’ve added structured sides for shape, and for spills, we’ve lined each of the compartments with high-grade, waterproof, wipeable material.

See! Back-to-school is easy as 1-2-3!
