So I got this note from Brookstone after buying a cool garment bag at their online store that I had seen in their airport store in Philadelphia recently:

I thought this was a great offer. What a nice bunch of folks. I'm sure I'll find something to do with $10 at Brookstone. The big, pleasant surprise about all of this was that at the end of the reviewing process they asked me if I'd like to add a copy of the review to my blog. Cool, yes?
I did want to add it to my blog, and they tried to do it for me. I guess my blog software wasn't compatible. (Who would have guessed that MySiteWorx wouldn't be in their list of API-ready blogs?) So Brookstone then offered me some HTML code to copy and paste into my blog manually. Now I just need to figure out how to make MySiteWorx as accessible as WordPress is for this sort of thing.
In case you're interested, here's the review (I think I may have rated myself higher than the bag):
Our ballistic garment bag keeps formal wear neat—and helps you get through security faster! Easy-access XpressCheck® pocket secures loose valuables (keys, phone, wallet) for quick, safe screening at airport security. Lightweight design holds suits and formal wear for an overnight trip or we...

Best Uses: Traveling, Commuting

Primary use of this product: Business
I have looked for something so incredibly simple as this bag for use in traveling for business for quite some time. There are other options out there, but after seeing this one in the airport I knew I needed to get online and buy it when I returned home. It's so very lightweight yet sturdy, so simple and yet so useful. Makes a one or two-nighter meeting trip much easier.
