During a recent trip to Sweden my 10-year old Antler small 3-day suitcase died after getting lame with a broken wheel on the streets of Vasteras. It had done a lot of miles and was due for retirement, but it was such a good bag I was loathe to send it to the back of the wardrobe one last time. Not only that, having had my eye open for a replacement for some time, I was not having much luck in find anything that could live up to my experience and expectations! Anyway, it going lame did force my hand, so during a three week sojourn back in UK, I got down to researching. I do travel light, and will always take the smallest amount/size of luggage I can get away with, so now I needed a three day, small cabin-size bag, that could also take my laptop comfortably. There are lots of small cabin bags available on the market, but most are either for clothes or laptop/office, so my stringent requirements did not find an easy match. Oh, and I did not really want to spend a small mortgage either…. After much deliberation, I came across a recommendation for a small UK company that specialises in business luggage: Gate8. Their various offerings included a small case with removable laptop/office bag, and was exactly the same size as my old Antler. After a quick email to them I received an almost immediate response from Alistair (Chief Bag Carrier), which so impressed me by the speed and obvious sense of humour that I bit the bullet and ordered immediately. Now, here I am today and we are on our first outing together, and I am already settling down and expecting a long and happy relationship. I managed to fill it with all that I anticipated and need, and despite being well laden it rolls as smooth as you like. Thanks to the team at Gate8………great product. (izvor.co.uk/oooh-new-bag/).

Travel most days of the week. Needed an overnighter and a day briefcase. This gives me both without having to empty and pack a briefcase before different trips. Just attach or reattach depending onthe trip. Plenty of room for all my overnight stuff.

Bought this for my husband who was very happy with it. Perfect carry on size, and handy separate section for laptop making it easier to remove at Security. Does what it says! Happy to support a local company.

I love my Gate8 Business mate Since 1997 I have travelled over 200 flights per year and I need a bag that is designed with me in mind. I have tried all different brands to find the ultimate bag. The real proof is that when my first GATE8 back was damaged I immediately bought a new one. Features I like: Lots of compartments, lots of outside pockets for easy access. Very good for going through airport x-rays as it is easy to get electronics in and out. And of course the price is very reasonable compared to other brands.

I wanted a good quality bag, flexible enough to cope with laptop and one or two nights away, in just the one bag. This does exactly that. Am very pleased with the purchase.

Happy with bag overall. Carry handles could be better but in practice the wheels make them less necessary. Gate 8 website is not well designed so ordering is far from easy.

I have used the bag for a number of different lengths of business trips - the front laptop section that zips off into a separate bag, but that can also be looped onto the handle above the main bag is great. Took it to Singapore for a week - managed to get everything I needed in, including gym kit! Very pleased with the purchase and looking forward to using in future.

I have been using my bag for a while now and it's good. The handle only telescopes to the fully extended position. I would sometimes like to pull the bag along with the handle only part way extended especially when boarding.

Like others found it to be slightly heavy, when inevitably one has to negotiate steps/stairs and the wheels can't be used. I have to travel with large bundles of paper. That said well made, quality bag and superb service.

I'm pleased with the bag, the quality is good, and though the separable laptop section is a bit big for my 13" Macbook Air, it is better than carrying a large bag around. With the laptop section attached the bag is 25 cm thick rather than the 20 cm advertised, and exceeds the IATA recommendations of 55 x 35 x 20 in two dimensions, but it looks small and I've had no problems carrying it on so far.

Good Product
I had the idea of a similar bag around 7 years ago when I started travelling a lot for business. The only issue I have is it is difficult to quickly unzip the laptop from the main bag e.g. when getting on a plane with Easy Jet and also difficult to use the front bit of the bag. The zip is only at the top and there are multiple pockets that I can't easily access.

Bought this for my husband as he travels across europe regularly for 2-3days at a time. He loves the case. Its perfect for a few days luggage and ideal that the laptop bag is attached. Much easier for travel and storage on the plane. Case is very sturdy and the extra initial stitching a nice touch! Would recommend.

Great bag, I use it for 2-3 day business use, so enough room for spare clothes and laptop. Good quality would def recommend. A longer trip you may struggle for room but this could easily double up as Carey on luggage.

Used it for the first time for one night away and as surprised by the capacity of the bag. I can easily see how it can be used for 4/5 nights away. No issues with overhead locker on an aer long us flight...and not having to queue at the carousel is a real boon. Great bag, highly recommend

Very clever design. The zip-off laptop case is so useful, the wheels are very quiet even over Barcelona's cobbled pavements and there's quite a lot of room. It's great for one or two nights away, but was a little small to get a suit and a pair of shoes in with a couple of days of shirts etc. I did manage to squeeze it all in though! The only drawback is that the front pocket for docs, pens etc is a bit hard to get into. The zip is a little short so you can't actually see very far in, leading to a lot of rummaging. On the up side, the handles are comfortable, it fits easily in even Ryanair's overhead bins and the bag itself is fairly light.

Thank you very much for the opportunity to comment on your Business MATE bag which I have found to be generally excellent. I had previously had a mother Brands Bag and needed to have a bag for one or two nights away on business trips. I was particular impressed with the detachable lap top bag and I do like your quiet and smooth wheels and strong zips.

Perfect for short business trips
I bought the Business MATE for 1 or 2-night business trips. Yes it would be great if it was a bit lighter (hard to achieve without compromising sturdiness, I suspect) and yes re-attaching the laptop bag can be a bit fiddly if the bag isn't lying flat, but otherwise it's hard to think of any improvements that could be made. Customer service is great as well. Highly recommended!

Great bag, very well made. A bit strange inside were the handle goes through but I use these depressions to store toiletries etc.( I should have bought the small packing bags as well) I have used this for a 4 day trip no problem. The lap top bag is great. My Dell Venue pro fits in to the ipad pocket leaving room in the main part for other things. Note that for Flybe and Lufthansa regional jets the laptop bag needs to be taken off to fit in the overhead locker. But saying that, it saved me £100 on my first two flights by not having to check a bag with Flybe. The magnetic catch on the handles is pretty useless, but that doesn't detract. Also the carrying handle is the wrong side of the extending handle to use the carrying handles to hold a coat or light jacket on the top of the bag. I would highly recommend this product

Very pleased with my purchase. I often have to carry a small tool kit on flights which of course has to go in the hold. I can separate the laptop bag and take it in the cabin with me. If the access to the laptop accessories compartment was more a flap than a slot it would be perfect. I have had complimentary comments from family and colleagues alike and look forward to many years service.

Excellent Travel Bag
I have in fact bought two of these bags one for myself and my girlfriend. I fly on small planes frequently and need the possibility to keep my laptop with me and put the rest of the bag in the hold at the steps of the plane. So this bag is perfect and one of the few on the market capable of this. The bag has sufficient space for a one or two night stay, so all in all I am very pleased. Also consider the price vs many other brands, it is good value. I did have one quality problem with the foot, which broke, not sure exactly how. Anyway, a replacement foot was sent in a couple and days and I was up and running again. Very good aftersales support.

After looking for weeks for the ultimate carry on bag (and being unsuccessful) - I came across this on the internet. What a revelation - it does what it says - only problem I've encountered with the bag when flying on 4 day business trips, is the carriage of shoes which can make the bag 'bulky' - but nevertheless, a great piece of kit........oh and I will really have to learn how to pack shirts!!!

Very pleased with both the service and the bag
What I love about this product is its versatility. It holds everything I need for a two to three day trip and folds up in a way that really doesn’t crease the shirts or suit. I hate ironing with a passion! So when I was doing my research into cabin bags this was important. But being cabin-friendly is monumental for me as the time I have spent at luggage carousels throughout my professional career is time I will never get back
