Products 12 FAQ
What is the difference between M5 and H5?
Both our Cabin models are designed to fit in the overhead bin on all commercial aircraft: they are both made of the same aerospace-grade German polycarbonate.
M5 features a smart front pocket for quick access to your laptop, tablet, phone and travel documents. H5 is slightly roomier inside, with a volume two litres greater than M5.
What is the difference between smart luggage and essential luggage?
Smart and Essential models are exactly the same on the outside: same materials and same construction. Where they differ is on the features: Smart Models feature an integrated, removable powerbank (except H7), a compression bad and hidden laundry bag.
Which airlines approve my cabin luggage?
Both Cabin Models M5 and H5 will fit in the overhead bin on all commercial aircraft. We recommend checking your fare conditions before you fly as luggage allowances vary greatly. Read our guide to airlines' standard sizes for cabin luggage.
Maintenance, Repair & Warranty 7 FAQ

How do I take care of my luggage?
Your luggage is shipped in a cotton dust bag. Between trips we recommend storing your luggage in the dust bag to protect it from dust build up and accidental scratches.
If you need to clean your luggage, use a soft cloth and warm water (and a mild soap if necessary) to clean the exterior. Take care not to get leather parts wet. Do not use abrasive cloths, harsh cleaning agents, vinegar-based solutions, disinfectants, petroleum distillates, solvents or dilutions. To clean the lining, wipe it down with a damp cloth and if necessary, use a mild soap to get rid of stains. Do not soak the lining. Remove excess moisture with a fresh towel, then leave the case open to air dry.
How do I take care of my Gion Backpack?
To clean your Gion Backpack, wipe it down with a soft damp cloth and if necessary, use a mild soap to get rid of stains. Do not use abrasive cloths, harsh cleaning agents, vinegar-based solutions, disinfectants, petroleum distillates, solvents or dilutions.
Smart Luggage Battery 9 FAQ
Can my smart charger be taken on flights?
Our powerbanks are permitted on board all airlines according to the general powerbank flight regulations that airlines follow. For safety reasons, lithium batteries such as our Smart Charger are not allowed in the cargo hold, so pop the powerbank out before you check your luggage, and bring it with you into the cabin.
If you have any more questions, please reach out to our team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Why does H7 Smart not have a powerbank?
H7 is designed for extended trips, and our research shows that on these sorts of trips, travellers are most likely to combine their large check-in model with a smart cabin luggage that already has a powerbank. Lithium batteries, such as our Smart Charger, are not allowed in the cargo hold of any aircraft, and feedback from our customers showed demand for a large check-in model without a Powerbank, so we developed the H7.
Smart Chargers are also available for purchase separately on our website.
How do I charge the integrated battery?
The four LED lights indicate your battery's remaining charge; press the round button to show how much charge you have left. When your battery is low, the last LED will blink. To recharge, connect the included cable to the “IN” port, and the other end to a mains power source. The LED lights will blink during charging. When the battery is fully charged, all four lights will shine white.
