Great weight


This bag is the perfect weight for travel. Comfortable cross body straps. Good inside organization.


Worth the price


I was extremely hesitant due to the price tag, it's just a bag right? Wrong. It's so well designed, fits in the back seat perfect (or hangs). I've been flying much more frequently (particularly since moving no longer driving distance from family) and was constantly juggling everything I'd need into the back pocket. I'd lose stuff to get bottom and worry I'd forget stuff. I also hate if there's any type of crumb or lint in the pocket and I touch it.

I ended up using this bag my entire trip and I never noticed. Yes the strap is larger and not very attractive, but it's highly supportive and as a woman with a larger chest, doesn't draw attention! Plus, as a taller person, the strap can go super long. I was worried about the only securing mechanism being a magnet but I never once worried about my items. The small strap in the back to put over a luggage handle is perfect.

My only, only "complaint" is I wish there was an attachment or a secret water bottle pocket.

If you're a frequent flyer this is worth it!

Love it


So far, I love this. I used it this week for a short-haul flight on a smallish commuter aircraft. It fit in the seat pocket and I was able to open the tray. My phone, IPad and papers fit well. I look forward to having it for a cross-country flight this summer.More > < Less


Tremendous bag


This bag is just the right size especially for travel but also for everyday use. It worked well and fit in various planes with different types back seat holders. The extra pockets for inside the messenger bag are very helpful to keep all the small stuff organized and within easy reach. I was able to put my iPad, kindle, magazine as well as my phone, earbuds and assundry other small things in this bag and locate things easily. I ended up buying two. One bag was missing a small strap. I told Grommet and the manufacturer and the problem was rectified right away. Great customer service. Buy one. You will love it!More > < Less


The Best Travel Bag


I love this bag!!! It is perfect for me. I travel a lot and often I feel like I am going thru my carry on and large bag on the plane trying to find my glasses, iPod etc and this bag is so convenient and has the perfect storage inside. The removable bags inside are great for all my charging cords and the zipper pocket is handy for money and what not. I don't carry a tablet, but, I do carry a book and that slot is perfect as well. I was a little nervous when I ordered it because of some of the negative comments, however, I have not encountered any of them, the bag works very, very well for me and even tho its sleek, it holds everything you could need on the plane!!More > < Less

About Walter + Ray

Organized Travel

Keeping our stuff on-hand and organized during a flight is a struggle we’d be happy to do without. Luckily for us, Walter + Ray has designed TAB, the ultimate travel organizer.

As a frequent traveler, Founder Tania Rodrigues knew the frustration of leaving items behind on an airplane. Rodrigues created TAB to contain travel essentials in a smartly designed bag that also keeps them handy.

TAB’s slim, streamlined style slides easily over the seat back pocket, and the magnetic SmartFlap keeps it secure. Or latch it on with the tray table straps.

With six defined spaces and two removable insert bags, everything has a spot inside the bag, and it’s all easy to see and access. An added bonus: your stuff stays off the surfaces that tons of other travelers have touched.

Durable, functional materials and sharp styling make TAB perfect for when you’re not in the air, too. Take it on a train or road trip, or use it as your everyday bag.
