Crease Free Clothes
Using our patented rolling technology, our bags allow you to transport your clothes crease free. By rolling, the bag also becomes more compact, and easy to carry through airports and on to a plane as carry-on.
Unlike other travel luggage on the market, your Henty CoPilot will allow you to move freely whilst carrying. With a Henty CoPilot, you're free to move with your hands free, meaning you can jump on a bike share, walk through parks or even run without worrying about wasting time returning to your hotel to pickup your luggage!
Durable enough to withstand the toughest of trips, the CoPilot comes with plenty of space for all your gear and is the ideal travel companion.

Jeremy and Jon founded Henty in 2012 as a result of a simple problem – how to transport business clothing to and from the office by bike, with it ready to wear on arrival. Jeremy Grey developed a prototype bag to solve this problem for his commute to work in Sydney, Australia. The concept worked well, so he and childhood friend Jon Gourlay founded Henty and set about to hone the design and commercialise the bag.
That first prototype evolved into The Wingman – a multi-purpose suit and garment bag which allows users to transport their work wardrobe with ease.
Today, Henty is proud to be a leading, sustainable company based in Tasmania, Australia, creating innovative products based on a “carry clever” ethos and selling them around the world.
The Story behind Our Story
Jeremy and Jon cycle to work, fly often and exercise daily.
Let’s talk about that time you struggled to pack your clothes when you walked, cycled or had to catch a plane? Chances are your clothes and belongings were jammed into a small backpack, suit bag or carry-on bag and arrived at your destination all creased and wrinkled. Or what about the time you decided to go to the gym or ride to work?
The Name Henty
Henty was founded in Tasmania, Australia’s island state. Named after a remote area on the state’s rugged west coast, on the edge of the renowned Wilderness World Heritage Area. It’s home to diverse coastal and inland trails and has some of the cleanest air in the world.
Henty’s focus remains simple – to create clever carrying products, from quality materials, which make life easier for active people.
Our team use Henty products every day. We don’t release products for the sake of it. We only design products which make life a little bit easier. Our materials are ethically sourced and our products are built to last and withstand the elements.
At the core of what drives us is one simple phrase “provide clever solutions for our customers”. Our focus is more than a mantra as we always put the customer first. This is evident in the products we produce, through to the customer support we provide.
When it comes to our products, we’ve got your back. We will repair or replace the appropriate part(s) if your Henty product fails as a result of defective materials or workmanship under normal use within five years of purchase.
Should this happen, contact us with your proof of purchase and explain the problem, and we will get back to you just as soon as possible.

Risks and challenges
We have experience in manufacture and distribution. Since launching Henty in 2012, we've been working with the same factory and suppliers. We have now manufactured and distributed over 10,000 products to over 15 countries.
An initial production run of 300 CoPilot's has been completed, with bags now in the hands of testers and reviewers. This means we are ready to manufacture the CoPilot and deliver this to backers within three months of the successful campaign.
Our proven quality control processes will ensure your purchase will exceed expectations. Since 2012, our return rate for defective products has been less than 0.4 per cent. Industry standard return rate is around 2%.
Additionally, every Henty bag includes a 5 year warranty.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
