For those of you who aren't familiar with the company, Lo & Sons makes stylish, travel-friendly bags that optimize on space and function.Founder and CEO Helen Lo originally launched Lo & Sons with the mission of creating a travel bag that alleviated the back pain she developed in her mid-60s. If this was hindering her from enjoying her wanderlust, then it must be affecting others as well. This need sparked an idea that birthed the O.G. overnight bag, a smartly designed shoulder bag with a suitcase-handle sleeve for easy transportation.
From there, Lo & Sons' success drove the team to developed over a dozen other bags, including overnight bags, laptop bags, camera bags, clutches, backpacks, and more - for both men and women. Lo & Sons prides itself on only using high-quality materials to make its bags, careful placement of pockets and compartments, and travel-friendly details, like the aforementioned suitcase-handle sleeve, so you spend less time fumbling with your belongings and more time exploring.
At first glance, some of the bags probably seem kind of pricey, but consider what you're getting for the money: Many of the bags convert to multiple styles (the $128 Edgemont goes from backpack to tote in just a few steps) and all of the bags feature useful pockets and compartments, for everything from your shoes to your laptop depending on their size. There's none of that, "What am I supposed to do with this?" business. It's obvious how much designing and testing Lo & Sons has done before launching each travel bag.
The Insider Picks team put eight different bags to the test, traversing New York City with them and even traveling across the country and overseas with the bags in some case. Our travels and daily commutes were much improved as a result. Keep reading for our thoughts on each bag so you can decide which one(s) to buy.
