Suit BagsAt times garment bags are referred to as suit bags. They come in different models. Some wheeled and non-wheeled, different shapes and sizes. So, the bag that you will choose in the end is largely determined by what you want to carry.

Benefits of garment bags
I can’t overemphasise the importance of garment bags in our lives. They provide us with much needed storage for our clothing. I am using clothing as a broad and general term to encompass all different types of apparel including suits, jackets and wedding gowns.

What Are Garment Bags Used For?

  1. Garment Bags are useful for protecting our fancier clothing, formal or business attire. Protection from dust, dirt, smells and to be wrinkle-free.
  2.  I believe that most people have one or two outfits they classify as ‘special outfits.’ So, they try their best to preserve those special outfits and one way is making sure they are only used for special occasions. Garment Bags are exceptionally good at doing this  job properly. Each time we use Garment Bags, we are guaranteed of getting the maximum protection.
  3. Garment Bags are extremely good for preserving the quality of our clothing. They keep away things like dust and humidity. If clothing is exposed to them over over a period of time, the good looks and good quality of our clothing is ruined.
  4. We also use Suit Bags to ease the transportation of our clothing. Using them during times of travel helps us to keep our clothes in good condition. We also get the same results when we are hanging our garment bags in our wardrobes.
  5. Garment Bags are not in the category of handbags that people carry around as they are used occasionally and are ideal for off-season clothes.

The choice is up to you as a customer to buy a Garment Bag which comes together with a cover or to buy it separately.

However, some customers prefer to buy Garment Bags that are sold in sets. For example, those that are part of Travel Luggage Sets. 

Dry cleaner Bags look like garment bags but they make a poor substitute because they are made from plastic material. 

The disadvantage of buying a plastic Garment Bag is that you will use it for a shorter period or temporary use. Always try to get a Garment Bag of excellent quality. It also depends on your circumstances. For example, a business person who is always travelling will find a Plastic Bag (dispensable bag), more appealing to buy.

Guide For Buying A Good Quality Garment Bag   

 To get a garment bag of good quality, choose carefully the fabric used for the manufacturing because it all adds up to the texture of the final product. I have listed below qualities to look out for in a fabric.

  1. Rainproof
  2. Stain proof, yet breathable enough so that the fabric doesn’t get ruined by either heat and humidity. Supplex is a good example of good material its lightweight fabric, waterproof and breathable.
  3. Strong and durable material is very important if you are going on holiday. Choose a Garment Bag or Suit Bag that is specifically designed for travel so that your travel garments are adequately protected.

Why Synthetic Material Is Recommended? 🤔
A garment bag that is recommended is made from EVA synthetic material. The advantage EVA synthetic material has over other materials is that it offers good protection, it is insulated and it does not break down easily over time.

Compared to other materials, EVA and nylon garment bags are the best because they are easy to care for and are water resistant.

Just a word of precaution, be extra careful, when purchasing certain types of garment bags that are made from thin plastic.

For health and safety reasons, try your best to keep them out of children’s reach. Children have a tendency of playing with a lot of things. They may play with plastic bags leading to a disastrous situation. Many times we hear stories about children who ended up being choked to death after putting plastic in their mouths.

When shoppingrememberr that there is a wide range of Garment bags on the market to choose from. It’s advisable to keep at least 1 Garment Bag in your closet on standby.

They are quite handy items and hard to beat when it comes to consolidating the size of your closet without getting rid of any precious possessions.

In a nutshell, a garment bag is a long hanging bag with a zip to allow you to put your clothing inside. You can use it for carrying your clothing items such as jackets, suits and dresses. These are a few tips I leave with you, to help you buy a decent Garment Bag. 

The most important thing to bear in mind is to compare the prices and the quality first before you part with your hard earned cash.

    Great information on garment bags! I am traveling for a competition with my son, and we will need to have a special outfit for the banquet at the end. I currently don’t have a garment bag, but you have developed a need that I hadn’t really considered. I was thinking to, that this might help keep the items from getting too wrinkled? That would be great if that is the case as well.

      glad that you like my article about Garment Bags and that you found it informative. I am
      sure you will take along at least one nice outfit when traveling with your son for the competition. If you pack your  outfit into a Garment Bag, it will be wrinkleless when you arrive
