Do you travel with your H bag?

Bags are meant to be worn and not sit on a shelf. If we can't use them when they're intended too, when do we?
I travel with my Gris Etain B35 all the time. It accommodates my MB 13", H Bain Pouch for all my smaller items, small water bottle and a rolled up/hoodie or thin jacket for the flight. The protective bag I actually have does a better job than a LC or a Goyard. It covers the entire bag bottom to top handles without the handles being bent or sticking out. I also Love how it fits like a glove and I get to use the straps as a shoulder bag. Why would I ever want to outshine the beauty of my H with another label branded bag.

Now to answer the question, My B35 goes into this cotton canvas tote 22" x 18" x 7.5" right before I have to put it through the tray for TSA. I simply tie the handles as a knot and lay it flat on it's own in a tray. When done, canvas comes off, canvas gets rolled up and goes into the Birkin. Same process takes place when inside the plane.

I never saw the need to invest into a name brand tote to tote my B35 or understand people that carry 2/3 bags at a time with labels/monograms/logos from different designers. I find it tacky and screams keep looking at me. To each his own I guess :-s

@fonnas , I love and aspire to your honed aesthetic
i’m assuming people nestle one bag in another as a carry on for practical reasons until they get to their destination, IDK :smile:

Meta, Makes sense how knowledgeable you are because you must have the most beautiful collection! Thanks for always sharing
You're too kind with your words. :blush: Re: knowledge; I just think I drank too much H Kool Aid. :roflmfao:

I will add that when going to beach holidays, I don't bring any H bags but definitely this pouch (Jardin d'Osier) to be used as a clutch:

Haha, I think we all drink from that fountain. It’s a slippery ride down into H-obsession. Love that idea for a travel pouch/clutch! My aunt had an idea of turning her vintage H scarves into a poncho since she no longer likes to wear them. She asked me if I’d see them for her since I make clothing for my son but I’m hesitant to take such precious items :smile:

Love this. Where do you get your tote bag from? (I can probably google for something similar but thought I’d ask :smile:) thanks!

I do this, I carry my Goyard Artois as my travel tote and throw my purse of the day in it. It’s likely obnoxious I guess if someone notices, but the Artois nestles perfectly on top of my carryon luggage and holds my purse and laptop and any junk I grab while waiting to board lol

I just saw this post so cross posting. I just carried my Bolide 25 to France and Spain. It was very practical though a bit heavier with all my essentials. Thanks for letting me share. I just put it in its dust bag and carried it in my carry on luggage.
