Wrinkle-free shirt transport. Any advice?

    Hello all,

    I spotted an Eagle Creek shirt carrier today (link) and wondered if it lives up to the hype. It says it can carry up to 7 work shirts wrinkle-free. Can anyone verify this lofty claim?

    I'd love something like this if it really works - I'm getting away with crumpled shirts at the moment 'cos I'm wearing a jumper on top, but when summer comes...;)

    Cheers,
    Horace

    Cheers for the prompt response User - I'll get down the shop tomorrow!

    Now, can anyone tell me how to iron a shirt? ;)

    Try those easy-care crease-free shirts. I think they're pretty good.

    looks like a really good idea

    how do you carry it on the bike?

    I just carry a new shirt in every day, (ironed the night before or a M&S non crease one) in a rucksack.

    After a shower, any further creases that may have accrued come out easily.

    skin tight = no creases.

    Doesn't apply to trousers though.

    I carry tomorrow's shirt neatly folded in a normal rucksack. I find that if it hangs for a day in the office, the creases from a 1 hour commute will fall out. I wear good quality, 100% cotton shirts.

    I like Mr Paul also have one, and it does indeed live up to [most] of the hype.

    I bought mine from Penrith Survival Equipment:

    It's a very simple design, but provided you put the minor effort in to folding things, keeps them compact and crease free. Any creases you do get are in a place that's not noticeable.

    IMHO one of my better bike purchases, and can also use it for non-bike things (flight bags, suitcases etc).

    Rufus.

    Luckily my work attire is casual so I don't have worry about wrinkles, but if I did I'd surely wear the shirt like a cape and ride with one hand thrust outwards on the way in.
