Business travel doesn't need to be an epic chore. Forget the queuing, forget the stress of waiting to check in your bags and forget the creased garments at the other end.
The Cabin MATE is a cabin size wheeled backpack, carry-on garment bag that uses clever, functional design to take all that pain away from you so you can travel the way you want to and not struggle like the others.
Built in the exact dimensions to fit the restrictions for 99% of airlines (including Easyjet, Ryanair, BA and Monarch), this wheeled cabin bag is the compact travel buddy you've always wanted. The main compartment contains a removable hanging bar that enables you to pack your trousers, dress, shirts and other garments with minimal creasing (up to 3 days clothing). There is also plenty of room to store shoes, underwear, toiletries, documents and other smaller essentials.
On the front of the Cabin MATE there is a detachable laptop compartment that houses a laptop up to 16'' inches in size plus a tablet and smaller items like money, passport, earphones and business cards. The laptop case means you can keep you tech safely with you on your flight whilst your Cabin MATE sits snug in the overhead locker.
This new V2 version gives you endless carrying options with hideaway backpack straps on the main carry on bag and another set of straps on the zip-away laptop carrier. Travel the way you feel comfortable.
Did we mention it is made from 1680D ballistic nylon and fitted with heavy-duty YKK zippers? That's right. The Cabin MATE is surprisingly lightweight but built for even the most demanding business traveller. The clamshell design also ensures an easy route through airport security.

Generally I'm very happy with this bag. Can fit enough in for a working week away with shirts trousers etc plus a change of clothes for the evening. The wheels are very smooth & quiet. Zip off laptop bag is very handy. My only 2 minor niggles are:
1) With a laptop in the bag it wont stand up (it falls forward)
2)The straps on the laptop bag keep adjusting themselves (the loop mechanism could do with being a bit tighter).

The result. 10 out 10. A wonderful piece of luggage and worth every pound
I packed in main case:
1 pair of walking boots filled with socks and underwear.
1 pair sandals
Three pairs of trousers (loved the strap)
Three vest tops
1 swimming costume
I pair pyjamas
Bag of non liquid toiletries.
Loved the sides that popped together and stopped everything falling out on opening.
Loved the strapping and zipped mesh cover in main case.
Couldn’t use the toiletry bag. To small and rigid plastic with no ‘give’ and didn’t want to have the bother of opening the case at security. Used a floppy plastic Eagle Creek one in laptop bag instead.
Would have liked a zipped mesh cover and strapping in both parts of case.
In the laptop bag I had the laptop, various chargers, empty handbag, toiletries, papers, wallet etc:
I cannot extoll the virtues of the laptop/day bag enough. The main case, with parts making it easy to lift, went above seat, while the laptop bag unzipped and fitted underneath seat in front. i had everything I needed in front of me. Wonderful. It also became a day pack, when going out for the day.
As I got out of the taxi at home, the driver said. “I can’t believe you’ve been away for two weeks with just that case.”
Thank you. It will be in use again this weekend, but only on a train trip in the UK. Worth every pound.

Spent much time searching for an overnighter with a detachable laptop bag before I found this. It's a really good little bag, and the feature with the detachable laptop bag transforming into a rucksack is perfect. Only complaint I have is that it needs to be packed a bit carefully regarding weight so or else it easily falls over.

Cabin Crew Approved
Lightweight and sturdy, this bag fits well into the overhead locker. It fits all I need into the main compartment for work and nightstop kit and if on a stopover can detach the backpack to avoid taking another bag with me. I use the integral wash bag for easy access to my liquids for passing through security. The generic colour ensures the trolley bag is compliant to uniform standards. A unique and stylish bag with clever extra storage options and compartments.

Have been thinking about buying one of these for ages and finally took the plunge. When it arrived I thought I had made a mistake as I couldn't see me getting enough clothes in there. Wrong !! got everything I wanted in there for a 4 day break and could have taken more. Only one niggle is that one of the poppers on the lining has already broken. I will be in touch with Gate8 to see if they will sort it out. A very well thought out travel case though.

Great for business travel
This is a super bag for short-stay business trips - whether by air or rail. The bag is light weight and the zip-off "office" a practical addition. The only thing missing is an in-built luggage tag (as per Delsey). Attaching a luggage tag around the handle is fine, but they always have a limited life. Other than that and excellent product.

The 2 highlights for me are how easy it is to use on public transport (trains, buses) & how versatile it is. The zip off ruck sack works really well for me too. The only criticism, if any, is the positioning of the handles on the laptop bag. They are on the top rather than the side, makes it look like a bit of a Roy Cropper.
Overall though, brilliant. Thank you for swapping it. Their suggestion GATE 8 leant me the previous model for the trip and then exchanged it for a new one immediately afterwards. It''s rare to find that level of customer support and then the bag itself was exactly what I needed - very pleased with it

Mk2 is Almost Perfect
I bought the original version of this case and was very pleased with it apart from one fairly major flaw. With the laptop pack zipped on, the case would not stand up, due to the weight of the laptop and stuff tipping it. This was a widely reported flaw by customers.
I've now bought the mk2 and am pleased to report that the tip up problem has been solved. In addition, the mk2 has straps to allow you to carry the whole bag on your back. I've only used the mk2 for a long haul (3 nights away) at the moment and I was in business class, so I could have gotten away with a much larger carry-on. The bag did its job perfectly though. It comes into its own when you're travelling on the budget airlines for a couple of days away. I've had no problems getting the mk1 onboard as carry on and it means I can leave the clothes part of the bag at the hotel and only have to take the laptop back into the office. The quick release toiletries bag is great when going through security. Some suggestions from me for a perfect bag would be a shoe compartment, quicker un clipping of the opening and most of all, padded straps on the laptop backpack. Re the unclipping, at the moment there are two press studs on each side that stop the top of the clothes bag from falling open past about 45 degrees. When you do want to open the bag fully to pack and unpack, it's a bit of a faff to fasten the press studs.
Just need to find a buyer now for my mk1 case. :)

This is my second bag from Gate8,the first being the trifold garment bag. Both bags are simply excellent, the cabin mate I've found very useful, carrying enough clothing for 3 days, laptop and all that sort of kit. The only thing I think is missing is a neat name tag as found on the Trifold bag. Keep up the good work.

Up up and away
Well designed with the business traveller in mind. Bigger clothing compartment than you think, with room for up to 3 nights wear. Internal strap and netting keeps clothes very neat. Very durable. Zips are high quality and very secure. The £ 149.00 price tag seems to be a bit high and luckily I managed to get a 20% discount code via Flybe in flight magazine.

The Perfect Business Travel Bag
I have been waiting for someone to develop this concept for years. It is quite simply the best bag for me. I tend to go away on business for 2-3 days at a time. I always travel the evening before, because red-eyes are no good for meetings. This allows me to leave the bag at the hotel and only carry a light rucksack. As I travel EadyJet and FlyBE a lot, it fits the 'one-bag' policy perfectly. I have had the bag for 2 months now, and it's great.
Thanks you Gate8

I have travel c. 2 weeks per month for work, have done for for years. On my most recent trip I bought your Cabin Mate and Micro-bag at Birmingham Airport. Oh my goodness, best luggage purchase ever, I couldn't be happier, so convenient and takes all the stress out of airports. Any chance you could create a stack-able shoe bag I could fit over the trolley handle. It would let me use the Cabin Mate for those slightly longer journeys also. I know I could have bought the Garment Mate but I loved the design and simplicity of the Cabin Mate.

Not yet been on holiday with it, but on dismantling the laptop part from the case, I found it very fiddly to get back on and certainly not quick enough to make a hasty exit from the plane. However, I don't feel I can give full feedback until I've used it on holiday.

Perfect for short trips
I regularly make 1 - 2 night trips on business and have been searching for a carry-on bag with adequate space for clothes and business equipment for quite some time.
I opted for the Gate8 Cabin Mate and do not regret it at all.
The bag is well built, from excellent materials; in particular, the roller wheels are almost silent and zips are sturdy and well arranged. The balance between clothes (60 - 70%) and business space (30 - 40%) is perfect for me and clothes stayed crease-free despite being upright for most of the journey.
The only improvement I would suggest would be to move the fixing of the elasticated retaining straps from the bottom of the case to the top. In their current location, the straps press too much on clothes and could result in creases. I didn't use them.
This minor gripe aside, I am delighted with the product, and was not surprised when a friend of mine, who travels more than me, described my Cabin Mate as "funky"and asked me where I got it from. He'll surely be another satisfied customer very soon.....

Waited till I've used the case a couple of times before reviewing.
Pretty much lives up to it's billing, was able to carry laptop and clothes for a couple of days. Didn't have any issues with the bag falling over as others have mentioned. Only small problem was trying to re-attach the two parts together before getting off the plane, but once I was able to get where I had more room was fine.
Only complaint really was I ordered at a busy time so took 3-4 weeks for delivery but my credit card was charged on the day I ordered. I always find that annoying
