If you caught my featured post last week—20 Products I Never Leave Home Without—you would’ve seen that one of the gadgets I always use is no longer for sale. The Lug Buddy (photo below) was the simplest invention: essentially a bungee cord that makes toting a duffle bag on top of your roller a cinch. I don’t check bags so it was perfect for cruising through airports without having to juggle or balance bags. With my Lug Buddy I never have to let my duffle bag touch the wet and filthy men’s room floor and if I’m traveling with my dad, I can put his bags on top, too—so it turns into a cart.
The good news is that a reader informed me that though the $15 Lug Buddy is no longer available, there’s a $12 Bag Bungee (at top) by Travelon that’s basically the same thing. In fact, it looks even sturdier, which means I’m going to be ordering one now as a backup.
