The Wingman - what do you think?

Saw the Henty Wingman at Outdoor Retailer last week. Would love to get some feedback from our commuting members.

Neat idea! Execution sounds good, too. 'Fraid I'm not the target audience, though.

Edited for spelling

sounds like a good idea to me also but i am not a suit guy, luckily. management at my level is still blue jeans, a regular collar shirt, and a baseball cap(if you desire one)

The most dressed-up I get for work is slacks and a collared shirt - which makes me better-dressed than probably 90% of my customers and coworkers.

I think the last time I wore an actual suit for any reason was to get married

I travel quite a bit and would love to hear the comments on this - nothing so far seems to keep the shirts and pants un wrinkled

man, i had to put a suit on two weeks ago for supervisor photos. what a bummer. i had to lay everything out and haul it here to work to change for a 5 minute picture and then change back and carry it home at the end of work.

I would use it for to/from gym trips. Currently I cram all of my stuff into a backpack. My slacks and button up shirts look less than stellar afterwards.

I wear a suit 1-2 times a week if not more. Shirt & tie 4-5 days a week. However, I do not commute by bike. Maybe when 2/3 of my kids are in school and I can work earlier hours.
