1x Zuca TIGI Flyer Artist TSA-Compatible Wheeled Carry-On Bag with Built-in Seat
I know I said it in the write-up, but I still think this is an awesome bag. I removed the embroidered logo on mine. Lots of work, the tape would be way easier. All the little organizer bags are also logoed but that’s NBD for like 75% off. The difference in size between the small and large ones is pretty silly, but they are useful and sturdy little packing bags for the little stuff.
It does not come with the travel cover that the Amazon one does (or if you buy direct from Zuca). IIRC that’s like $50 on its own. I’ll skip it since it will only be a carryon bag for me.
@icehole I removed the bag (requires partially disassembling the frame), turned the embroidered pocket inside out, used some cardboard as a backing board inside (outside?) the reversed pocket to hold the fabric straight, and shaved the embroidery off from the backside with disposable razors. It’s quality embroidery, like seven layers with tagboard backing embedded in it.
Go slow and definitely use a backboard to keep the workpiece flat. I started out just holding my fingers behind the registered trademark symbol and shaved right through the fabric on that spot. Now I have reflective high vis stripes across the bag to cover for that failure and make it easy to spot the bag anywhere, anytime.
You could probably do it with a seam ripper. Like I said there are several layers to the embroidery, though. I would shave the backside until it looked like most of the threads were cut, flip it right side out and scrape across the embroidery with a fingernail and everything that was cut would come right off. Then repeat the process until it all comes out. It makes quite the mess, too.
@icehole you might get away with not removing the bag, but I was being thorough. I thought surely I was doing something wrong so I wrote to Zuca and they sent me instructions to remove the bag, and yep, you disassemble parts of the frame to do it. There’s a captive rod going across under the seat that holds the top of the bag up, and it is inserted into holes in the frame across from each other. Then there are grommets that other bolts for the frame pass through as well. It’s technically “removable”, but not something you easily pop out to wash like they make it seem. I don’t generally go soiling my luggage, but if I do I know how to get it out of the frame now.
I have this Zuca TSA in blue fabric. This is pretty awesome. With all the waiting in the TSA lines it’s great to have a seat. Plenty of pockets and great quality. Flew on Alaska/Delta/Southwest/Hawaiian with no problem
Cons: smaller interior, carries less than other carry-ons we have.
Can’t roll it down the aisle in the plane because the luggage rolls on the wide side.
Overall, I like it. Keeps me honest to not overpack
@Mescolito I have a nice jacket from a company I used to work for. I just used a Sharpie. The logo is still visible, but it is very dark and difficult to see. If I were to get this bag, I would do that first and see if the results were as good.
I would LOVE this bag BUT my job has gone from 25-33% travel to almost no travel, I have a good european size bag that does NOT steal an inch of capacity with sexy little legs, it weighs 10 pounds!!!, last when I travel I spend my waiting time walking in the terminal since I will be sitting plenty on the plane
@RackDaddy@werehatrack I was thinking the exact same thing. And the gaffer’s tape trick would probably help even more since it would look like something that was already falling apart and someone had to tape it up to hold it together – clearly nothing of great value to be found inside…
