Will the Riser, luggage shelves fit in my suitcase?
To check the RISER will fit in your suitcase, the opening of your suitcase needs to be at least 12.5" x 17.5". The depth can be any depth because the Riser will just expand to fit.
See dimensions below:
Using the Riser, luggage shelves
The Riser is ideal for any kind of travel that is 2-5 days (per Riser). It can be used on small planes, big planes, or even just for a night out.
Packing the Riser, luggage shelves
You can pack lots in the Riser Luggage Shelves! This is just an idea of what you can pick. Depending on the climate, you can pack more or less.
Airplane Travel: Which models qualify as carry-on for major airlines?
- Riser: you can put one of these inside of your existing carry-on luggage
- Jumper: but there will be plenty of room to spare
- Carry-on: fits maximum carry-on dimensions
*We always recommend you checking the actual carry-on dimensions for the flight you are planning, especially if it is with a smaller airline. But the Jumper will work for every airline we have seen.
Airplane Travel: Which model can I use as a personal item?
You can use the Jumper model, as it is quite a bit smaller than a carry-on item.
Airplane Travel: Which model is a check-in?
- Riser: you can put two of these inside of your existing check-in suitcase
- Suitcase: this model is check-in only
Airplane Travel: Are there any issues with the metal rods in the security scan?
Never have had an issue!
Are the bags water resistant or waterproof?
The bags are water resistant, but they are not waterproof. The exterior is made with a PVC (rubber) backing that provides excellent water resistance.
What if I don't have a closet to hang it in?
The RISE shelves have hooks that do fit over a door or curtain rod when there is closet that you can use. If it doesn't quite fit the door you have, the metal hooks can be opened up a little wider by bending them open a bit more.
Here is a quick video showing how: Door Demonstration
Do your bags come with a Riser shelving insert?
Carry-on and Suitcase: No, these do not come with shelves, shelves need to be purchased separately except for when being purchased on pre-order they come with a FREE Riser and Jumper, until July 31st.
Jumper: comes with shelves that are permanently attached to the inside of the bag. So you do not need to purchase the Riser shelving separately.
Where can I put my laptop?
We recommend putting your laptop in a protective sleeve then put it in the top shelf (where the undergarments would normally go). It is not a dedicated spot, but it works well and is protected by the top shelf and clothes.
Jeans, shoes and toothpaste, brush where do you put it?
Jeans can go on the shelves, shoes can go in the top pocket. We recommend if you have a separate toiletry case, they usually fit very nicely between the shelves and the side of the suitcase. Also many of our models also have side pockets for things like toiletries and brushes etc.
For dresses, they can be either folded or rolled and then put into the shelves to keep them neat and organized.
How about TSA?
We find mostly TSA just wants to inspect a very specific item that they might have a question about and they usually just lift the shelves out and inspect leaving the remainder intact and undisturbed. Obviously if they are going to completely go through EVERYTHING it really won't matter what suitcase or organizer you have it will be a mess, sort of unavoidable in those circumstances.
Does it come with a lock?
Other than the new carry-on and suitcase models which has built-in TSA combination lock, our other bags do not come with a lock, but they do have lockable zippers on the main opening that allow you to use your own small travel lock to secure the bag from being opened on the main opening.
What is the Riser luggage shelf?
A Riser is just the shelving insert part that you can use to put inside other luggage, for example if there is a carry-on bag or check-in suitcase that you have and want to add shelves to it.
If you have a carry-on bag, one Riser will fit inside.
If you have a suitcase, you can fit one or two Risers inside (and use the leftover space to pack around).
What is the price?
To get the price you need to click on the model that you are interested in, for example the Riser, Jumper, Weekender, Roller or Glider. Once you are on the product page, you will see the prices.
Click the button below to see all of our products:
What material is used?
Riser: for the shelves, we use strong lightweight polyester and it is double stitched at the edges. The shelf component weighs only 1.5 lb (one and half pounds) and it can hold over 50 lbs of clothing.
JJumper: the exterior material is a PVC/rubber backed polyester (to provide water resistance). For the interior material on the shelves, we use strong lightweight polyester and it is double stitched at the edges. The shelf component weighs only 1.5 lb (one and half pounds) and it can hold over 50 lbs of clothing.
Carryon and Suitcase: makrolon polycarbonate exterior shell, aluminum frame, and plastic resin wheels (strong and light).
Can I use a TSA lock for security?
The carry-on and suitcases come already with a built-in TSA combination lock.
For the Jumper ride-along bag, the zippers on the main opening allows you to use your own small lock to secure it. If you wish, you may use a TSA lock for this purpose.
Will it work in cruises?
The Jumper and Riser will usually work best in most cruises because it is smaller, just 17" (the width of the shelves), which allows for smaller living quarters and cabin closets.
Does the material use fire retardants?
We do not spray any fire retardant on our products because these sprays are usually toxic to humans.

What is your Return Policy?
SHIPPING COST IS NON-REFUNDABLE
Upon arrival of your order, be sure to inspect each item in your order before using the item, removing the hang tag, or discarding the shipping/packing materials. Once the product has been used, hang tag removed, or shipping/packing materials discarded, we can still accept a return - but there will be a restocking fee of 10% incurred for returning an item that is used. This is because we are a small company and will need to inspect and repackage the item to make it resalable again (and sometimes returns are not resalable at all). If you no longer wish to keep the product for whatever reason, used or unused, it will be considered a preferential return.
However, we know that sometimes returns are needed. For such returns, please read our Return Policy below.
Need to make a return? It's easy. Just email INFO@RISEGEAR.COM within 30 days of receiving your order to get the process started. In your email, let us know:

(4) What type of reimbursement you’d like. We can issue either a refund to the original payment method or a store credit.
UNUSED ITEMS RECEIVED INCORRECT, DEFECTIVE OR DAMAGED

(1) Have not been packed with your personal articles (i.e. your clothing),
(2) Have not been traveled with,
(3) Hang tag must still be attached, and
(4) Include all original packaging (instruction sheet, hang tag and polymailer/cardboard box).

Please keep this in mind as you choose your return shipping method. Used items will have an additional 10% restocking fee which will be applied to the refund amount.

What does the RISE Guarantee cover?
RISE provides a manufacturer’s warranty on the product you purchase in accordance with the conditions below to the final consumer when purchased from RISE or an authorized RISE dealer.
The warranty will commence from the date the product is received from RISE or an authorized RISE dealer provided the final consumer provides proof of purchase and otherwise will commence from the date of manufacture as determined by RISE.
This warranty only applies if the usability of the product is materially adversely affected by a fault or defect in material or workmanship in the manufacturing process present at the time of delivery to the final consumer (a defect).
This warranty does not apply, however, if the usability is affected by abrasion, improper use or externally occurring forces (particularly fight or transport damage, e.g. deformation, cracks, body breakages, scratches, wear etc.) or by liquids.
This warranty also excludes damage and defects related to or caused by: normal wear and tear, ordinary deviations in size, weight or quality, misuse or abuse, improper use or maintenance, failure to observe care instructions and manuals, negligence or accident by any party other than RISE (including authorized RISE dealers and carriers).
RISE recommends having the product inspected by a third party immediately after handling by a carrier (e.g. courier, airline or railway company) and immediately reporting any damage to the carrier who may provide insurance against such damage.
Among other things, some product series are characterized by special leather fittings, particularly on the handle and at the corners of the suitcase.
To make a claim against this warranty, immediately contact RISE of the defect and send the product and the completed certificate of warranty included with this warranty and/or original proof of purchase. RISE will review the claim and decide whether the defect is covered by this warranty. If RISE determines the claim is covered, RISE will, at its discretion, repair or replace the product at its own expense and pay the return shipment costs. You are responsible for the cost of delivering the product to RISE. If RISE opts to replace the product, RISE may replace the product with a successor product.
If RISE determines the claim is not covered, you will be responsible for any return shipment costs. All parts removed in the repair of the product shall be the property of RISE upon their replacement. Any product replaced shall be the property of RISE upon delivery of the replacement product.
The repair or replacement of the product shall not extend this warranty and this warranty will only apply to the repaired or replaced product.
THIS WARRANTY IS YOUR SOLE AND EXCLUSIVE REMEDY AGAINST RISE. IN NO EVENT WILL RISE OR ITS SERVICE CENTRES BE RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL (E.G. FINANCIAL LOSSES), SPECIAL, PUNITIVE, EXEMPLARY OR OTHER SIMILAR T YPES OF DAMAGES. ALL OTHER WARRANTIES, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION ANY IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, QUALITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE OR NON-INFRINGEMENT, ARE HEREBY DISCLAIMED. RISE’S TOTAL LIABILITY UNDER THIS WARRANTY IS LIMITED TO THE PURCHASE PRICE PAID BY YOU FOR THE PRODUCT GIVING RISE TO THE CLAIM AS SHOWN ON THE PROOF OF PURCHASE OR, IF PROOF OF PURCHASE IS NOT PROVIDED, TO RISE’S SUGGESTED RETAIL PRICE FOR THE PRODUCT IN YOUR COUNTRY OF RESIDENCE AT THE TIME THE CLAIM IS MADE. HOW U.S. LAW APPLIES TO THIS WARRANTY (FOR U.S. RESIDENTS ONLY).
This warranty gives you specific legal rights, and you may also have other rights which vary from state to state. Some states do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitation or exclusion may not apply to you.
U.S. federal warranty law prohibits the disclaimer of implied warranties, so the above disclaimer of implied warranties may not apply to you.
If the disclaimer of implied warranties does not apply to you, the duration of the applicable implied warranties is restricted to the duration of this warranty.
How do I make a Guarantee claim?
To claim our guarantee, immediately inform a RISE dealer or an authorised RISE service centre of any defect within the guarantee period and hand over or send the product and the completed certificate of guarantee or original proof of purchase.
RISE will then determine whether the defect is covered by the guarantee. If this is the case, RISE will repair or replace the product.
Care and Repair
How to care for your RISE luggage?
In order to preserve the fine condition of your luggage, please note the following recommendations: To remove dust or dirt, use a cloth or non-abrasive sponge dampened with clean water.
Any stubborn or sticky residue can be removed using a simple alcohol such as Isopropyl. This is widely available as pre-soaked wipes and safe to use on your RISE luggage.
For any light scuffs or scrapes on the surface of your case, use wax-free polish & repair paste (sadly not recommended for use on our matte finish). We like to think of any deep dents or scratches as patina, as they cannot be removed.
To clean any leather components, use some mild cleaning agent and a soft cloth to gently remove any surface dirt. Occasionally, it’s a good idea to treat the leather and vinyl with a conventional, neutrally coloured maintenance product.
Although it may seem tempting at the time, using any of the following will damage your RISE: scouring detergents, abrasive cloths or sponges, window cleaning agents, vinegar based cleaners and disinfectants, solvents, dilutions and aggressive alcohols, petroleum distillates or nail polish remover. Be gentle.
