Who’s got your back? Your Wingman, of course!
Mature Traveller has tested Wingman and found it very suitable for our lifestyle, so please read on…
They say a good wingman is hard to find. Well it just got a whole lot easier thanks to two clever Aussie mates. Frustrated after cycling to work and removing suits from backpacks with more creases than an elephant’s behind, these guys knew there had to be a better way. The Henty Wingman was born.
The Henty Wingman sports a clever two-in-one design. The outer shell is a suit/dress bag. Then there is a spacious gym bag designed to hold all your other gear. Wear either piece as a stand-alone backpack, or wrap the suit bag around the gym bag and you’ve got yourself the mother of all backpacks. This clever unit even has enough room for your laptop or tablet.
Cyclists aren’t the only ones that will love the Henty Wingman. It’s perfect for mature travellers, motorbike riders, gym goers, yoga enthusiasts, runners, swimmers, and of course those that travel a lot – mature travellers. If you’re heading interstate and only want to take carry-on luggage the Henty Wingman is perfect. It has been designed to fit carry-on specifications and overhead lockers, and unlike a traditional overnight bag or case, you won’t need to press your clothes at your destination.
So how does it work? The suit/dress bag rolls into a tubular shape forming a diameter of about 25 centimetres. This shape is held in place with PVC ribs that run up the length of the bag, so this unit won’t collapse in on itself and is able to hold the garments in place. Less movement means less creases. A removable super strength coat hanger is included.
The Henty Wingman also comes with a hi-vis waterproof rain jacket, an exceptionally comfy adjustable shoulder strap, reflective piping for added night safety, a stabilisation waist strap and a quick release buckle. Well it wouldn’t be a great wingman if it didn’t think of everything!
The Henty Wingman is available in two sizes; compact and standard, and three inner lining colour options; blue, green and grey. $199 from henty.cc. A double strap version designed specifically for runners, the Wingman Backpack, is also available from the site for $239.
Wingman appreciation just reached new heights!
