Liking :: OneBag
That’s all you need right? One bag? Jack of all, ace on none type of bag – does everything, excels at nothing. Kinda sounds like me, damn it.. But this isn’t about me, its about One Bag. OneBag.com to be exact.
OneBag.com is one of those sites that you stumble upon and just go “yessssssss!!, I can’t believe I hadn’t found this earlier”. It’s a site that lives on the borderline edge of passionate vs OCD. Luckily for us – and you – OneBag’s obsession is luggage, and how to reduce your luggage weight before traveling.
Sooo, OneBag is run by a dude who gave himself the name of the ‘Go Light Guru‘ – but his mum knows him as Doug Dyment. Doug obsesses over ways to reduce the weight, bulk and hustle of luggage when traveling, he has come with ways of folding to avoid creases (aka, the bundle fold), segmented packing checklists, substitution ideas for liquids, and a heap of resource links that are your mouse will have a field day of clicking with..
The true travel geek will love this site, think George Clooney in Up In the Air –“Bingo, Asians. They pack light, travel efficiently, and they have a thing for slip on shoes. Gotta love ’em.”
But there’s also bit’s n piece’s in this site that cater to less frequent travelers – all in all if you are struggling to meet your baggage allowance, or sick of waiting for your checked bags, you might score a valuable tip or two about avoiding a luggage crisis next time you fly, drive, bus, train it anywhere..
The site is pretty text heavy, so don’t go there expecting an amazing graphic experience. This is utilitarian travel, with a utilitarian look.
Check the site out and be that dude who is at the front of the taxi queue, having slid straight past all the other airport suckers.
