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.
Reviewed by: Philemon from London.
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!).

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

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.

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.

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.

I bought the Tri Fold four day suit carrier as I travel extensively and have lost baggage on more than one occasion.

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.

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 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.

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.

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.

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.

Very clever take on the travel luggage theme
I travel extensively across the UK and occasional overseas trips on business; on planes, trains & automobiles. So after many years of faithful service, my old roller case finally gave up the ghost. I saw the Gate8 advert in an inflight magazine and phoned through to the company to get more information.
The service, advice and helpfulness I received is definitely a cut above the norm and on their advice ordered the Tri-Fold Garment MATE. As I happened to be travelling at the time, they arranged for the case to be delivered directly to the next hotel I was due to stay at - great and flexible service!
On to the case itself, it is a very clever and flexible take on the old suit-carrier style of case. The case is roomy and has some really nice touches, from the velcro attached open bags to the zip-off laptop bag and multiple pockets and smaller trinket pockets, these are very well thought out.
As I travel so much, my bags do get a complete workout and to date the bag has coped extremely well showing no signs of wear and tear demonstrating the high quality of components used. The handles are soft to touch and are extremely comfortable to use and the wheels being a softer compound than most make the bag appear to glide over surfaces. My only criticism is that the case is very wide as it is effectively turned through 90DEG from most other cases making it very stable to roll but on more than one occasion I have bumped it into lifts, corners of walls and so on. This is really picking holes as the case really is both clever, well thought out and well made from high quality components.
Overall I am very pleased with my purchase, the service from Gate8 has been exceptional and I sing the praises of the case to anyone who asks!

A great bag for those that travel!
Great bag for those travelling needing an extra suit and shirts. I have bought one for my team with our company logo on the bag. Very smart! I suppose the only draw back is if you have a heavy laptop then the bag will lean over which means you need to hold onto the adjustable handle. However as I'm buying a Surface laptop this may not be such an issue for me going forward as they are so light. Nevertheless, a big thank you to Gate8 for their excellent service!

G8-TRI GATE8 Tri-Fold Garment MATE is suitable for my travel trip as I normally required around 7 days traveling. I can put my t-shirts, trousers, sneakers etc, and have enough small compartments to put other things as well.
It's even suit to be located in the luggage compartment onboard small jet of American Airlines.
The only thing that can be improved here is the foundation of the bag when the laptop bag is zipped or attached together with the main bag. When this happened the whole bag tends to fall down (maybe it's because I'm carrying laptop more than 2kgs). So probably extended foundation can be added to ensure the bag stand still.
Other than this, the bag had performed an excellent job !! .. Well done.

Great for the road warrior!
I travel with work four days a week and have had many carry on bags, I have been traveling solely with carry on for the last five years. My go to bag for the last three years has been REDOXX but they are expensive, only available overseas and crease the crap out of your clothes!
The tri fold bag has made my life so much easier I can pack relatively crease free for 3-4 day trips and carry my mobile office with me and detach it once I arrive ready for work. I mostly fly European budget airlines and haven't been challenged at check in yet so big plus there for me!
My only design input would be to stiffen the rear of the laptop bag or middle section of the main bag where it zips on so shoes don't intefere with the electrical goodies.
All in all virtually perfect one bag travel solution, good work!

Very pleased with the bag.
I had been looking for a smaller carry on bag for some time. My general routes tend to be with BA so not really a size problem, my other bag really just too big fo 1 or 2 nights.
Used it a couple of times, pleased with what I can get in in and love the design. I was concerned about getting my running kit in but fitted fine
The only problem I had was with balance with the laptop bag full. It was tending to fall over.(my laptop bag carries a lot). Experimenting with using the laptop bag zipped in place, for leads etc and using my old laptop bag over the handle.
Minor issue and about the way I use bags rather than design issue!! Would and will highly recommend it!
