The best bags money can buy...

Ogio (pronounced oh-jee-oh)

OgioOrgio.jpgYou want your bags to last right? You want to be able stuff them full of clothes, boards, helmets, computers and cameras, right? And most of all, you want to be able to immediately identify them the minute they hit a baggage carousel, right? The folks at Ogio helped us pick these out and I swear to you that these 9800's could store our entire house. These bags, and for that matter, every bag Ogio produces are beyond sturdy, and very intelligently designed. When you see a traveler carrying an Ogio bag, you'll know two things about them. One, that they appreciate great value and quality, and two, they must be really smart :-) Also, thanks to the folks at Ogio we were able to get their loudest and juciest color, and embroider our trip Logo (yep we actually have one) and initials on the bags. Worry no more about some unruly thief trying to claim one of these bags as their own. These bags are da’ bomb!

Quick update on those bags after slogging them all the way to Beijing... they are so big that we exceeded the airline's maximum weight by roughly 20 to 30 lbs - per bag. We even over stuffed our backpacks. Yep, we could have packed lighter, but after loading 9 months of clothes and books, etc.. we couldn't imagine packing less. I guess we have crappy imaginations, because we are now reluctantly trying to jettison clothes and other stuff like a conflicted mother sending her first child off to college, when she really wants his bedroom for her own office.

Unless I'm missing something, one cannot reference (aka brag about) their trip logo w/out giving us a good view of it...

BTW - Thx for including me, I'm excited to see how the adventure unfolds! Speaking of which, we will likely have a baby this week, so I'll let you know how our adventure unfolds, too.:)
