Excellent bit of kit. Surprisingly roomy and well thought out and easy to handle. Just done an 8 day 6 flight tour with suit, shirts, 2nd pair of shoes and all the usual extras - without having to take hold baggage. Highly recommended.

Mr
Overall very happy with the product. well thought out and innovative design. Not so sure about build quality though, it has only been on three trips and already the Velcro fasteners on the outer most folding covers are coming away from the case. Also the clasp that holds hangers in place is a little loose and I find my jackets have come off the hook in-flight, which can lead to crumpling. I like the product, but can't see it lasting a lifetime (as the warranty would suggest!). Update from GATE8 Luggage: A REPLACEMENT bag shipped to customer to address ALL the points raised in the review.

The product as a whole i think is good and has many compartment within which to store things, however my purchase had some problems. some part of the bag was torn. It took ages for the product to be delivered to me. I had to call several times, at some time the phone was going unanswered for hours on end.

I travel regularly on a weekly commute from Stirling to London as well as trips to Europe. Whilst this has served me well the strap after a year has broken so could do with extra strength on the metal clasps for me to give it a 5, however would recommend for carry on travel. What does make the overall experience top class is that once Gate8 knew of the strap they replaced it straight away. Great product and great service leaving me with a great experience. Thank you

Enjoyed my first use of this item. It fitted well in the Dash 400 run by Flybe. Great functionality, but I was warned on the return trip that it would not be allowed as cabin baggage as it didn't fit into the measuring box at security. I hope I can continue to sweet-talk my way passed that one in future.

Resident of Scotland but currently in New Zealand. This great bag has had a trip to London and now all the way to New Zealand. It is the most versatile cabin bag I have ever had (I am an airline captain). The slightly wider stance has caused the odd snag but I have learned to cope. Highly recommended for its superb quality and, with the discount, good value too.

Well thought out
Considering its overall size, the amount of compartments and well considered stowage this bag has is impressive. Ok, so my suit was a little misshapen and the weight when laden is quite considerable. All is forgiven when you can just breeze through without checking baggage. I did have a couple of the inner zips pop open, but they reengaged when undone and redone so no big drama. Overall for a 1-3 night business trip it's very smart.

Very pleased with this bag. I bought it for my son, who needed something capacious that he could take as hand-luggage. it's a lever design that fits the overhead rack on a plane but enables you to get a fair amount of stuff in. Especially clever is the zip-on container for a laptop, which can be detached and used as a laptop carrier at tour destination. Very clever indeed.

Very pleased with purchase
I bought the Tri Fold four day suit carrier as I travel extensively and have lost baggage on more than one occasion. I am extremely pleased with the bag and its design, I am able to carry a suit, four shirts and the rest with no problem. My only suggestion would be to have the laptop back have a solid back so it is not bent when the main bag is full.

Good product, good quality. I just would work on having a longer hadling bar, your feet touches from time to time the bag, and also an easier way to attach the small bag, zip is not that convenient.

Great for a few days
Loved the bag for a few days all-in-one travel. Plenty of room for shirts etc and having the built in laptop bag is great. A few suggestions. I echo another reviewer that it would be good to have the outer zip fully around the bottom not just the sides. And the laptop bag I found too tight for laptop, new Ipad Pro (because larger size), notepad plus toiletries. Best would be somehow to separate the toiletries.

Mr
As a short haul airline pilot I get through a fair few bags, and i looked to this to fill the 1-3 nightstop niche as I liked the compactness of it and the possibility of packing that much luggage and not having to check it in when I'm positioning. I've done 5 trips with it now and my initial response is positive. The material and construction quality is nice, it looks good and the rolling action of the wheels feels stable and built to last. In many ways it's not reinventing the suit carrier, but the main achievement in my mind is the wheels and trolley handle, which have been thoughtfully executed. All in all I'm very encouraged by it so far. The separate zip-off notebook bag is nice too, but I've tended to leave it off for my trips as I take a separate bag which also contains my headsets etc (a specialisation in itself). My only reservation is the 2 inside corner detachable compartments, which I had hoped would be somewhere to put a shoe each, but they aren't big enough so I'm forced to take them out and use the space to put a shoe in each top corner, both in plastic bags to keep them off the clothes. This seems a bit of a missed trick to me, as folding clothes can always been put in a small space but shoes are always a problem. It all fits, but I'm deducting one star for my rather inelegant carrier bag solution seeming a bit messy on top of all that other stylish and clever design. Notwithstanding that I'd still recommend this product for that 1-3 night niche.

As an aviation veteran I've tried just about every type of bag known to man. This one though is nothing short of superb! Designed by people who have thought it through and ensured it has excellent build quality. Only one small criticism the outer zip on the fold should go all the way around the bottom of the bag rather than just the dudes. For any serious traveler, who is away for a few days at a time, this is the bag to have a complete no-brainier! Will buy other Gate 8 products for sure

I purchased the trip fold garment MATE while at a show at the excel in London, My previous suit carrier had broken and I needed one quickly. I am very impressed with the garment MATE is is compact yet carries all you need, the unzip briefcase is an excellent well thought out feature. the only down side was the way the shirts were creased and required ironing but I have just ordered the shirt carrier accessory and will see how this shapes up. All in all an excellent bag.

The wife ordered this as an early Christmas present, because the existing suit carrier handle broke. I have used the new Gate 8 Suit Carrier twice since travelling to Europe on business trips and I have to admit amazing product. It was a little out of our budget, but since using it was worth every penny! Time saved at airports for check-in and check-out (luggage) is just a big bonus. Definitely 5 star!

Does what it says on the tin !! Suit gets there without hardly a crease :) Would recommend buying the shirt carrier too which makes folding the shirts a breeze and keeps them in a wearable condition. 3 to 4 days possible but shoes as well would be tight.. Well done Gate 8 and thanks for getting my bag to me quickly when needed.

I am very pleased indeed with my new Gate 8 and think it will do just fine when I visit relatives in New Zealand. I try and visit them every year if I can and for the last 2 visits I've gone hand luggage only. Easy if you don't take too much, plan to wash clothes whilst away - no biggie - and try and choose easy pack travel clothing. This is so much better than my current bag.

I found this item to be of excellent value, quality and far more efficient than I expected. One problem however is that when an adhesive security tag was removed from the handle the self adhesive label stripped the black covering from handles and has left them looking unsightly. Without this the product would have been 5-star

The best £150 I have spent on luggage. I regular fly from BHX to Scotland & Ireland, and always use my Gate8 TriFold suit carrier. It is superbly designed, very high quality, low weight, durable and very easy to pack enough suits, shirts, soapbag & shoes (plus laptop & chargers) for a 3 day stay. It even fits into Flybe's tiny overhead lockers, which must be the smallest on a plane. Very highly recommended, and Alistair has done a great job designing this, and the other luggage items in Gate8.

Great bag for overnight business travel
I just took my first business trip with this bag and overall my impression was very good. It's best features in my view are the zip off laptop bag and the full-fledged garment bag, which kept my suit looking great. The biggest issue I noted, and the only thing standing in the way of this being a five star review, was that the bag tends to tip over when the laptop bag has a laptop in it. This can obviously be annoying. Otherwise, it's a great bag.

Firstly, I would like to thank the cutomer care team at Gate 8 for their excellent service. I purchased the wrong item and needed the replacement to be delivered next day so I could use it for a business trip. They pulled out all the stops and I got my bag in time. I have since used this bag for 2 x multi day business trips and it has served its purpose wonderfully. There is enough room for 2 x suits , shirts, a spare pair of shoes plus additional clothing. The laptop case is big enough to fit all my accessories and my toiletries. Currently I'd have to rate this with 5 stars, but whether the zips hold up to several trips remains to be seen.

Great bag
I've used the Tri-Fold Garment MATE for 1.5 years now. It is my main travel bag for business travel. Airlines love it as it fits overhead well, the few times I've needed to check due to full flight or very small regional plane, it has come through the luggage hustle very well.Zippers and wheels work well and I have been able to pack 3-5 days worth of travel suits, shirts and ties. The only time I have to really sit on it to close is when I need to bring 2 pairs of shoes for suits. Even then it works great.
