During the summer, we vacation. And during the fall, we weekend. Our lengthier trips away during the sunshine season called for suitcases, but autumn requires a travel bag that can help us sail smoothly through hectic holiday-hopping with friends and family — a bag that will hold all of our stuff, won't weigh us down, and will still look stylish. A weekender bag.
Weekenders run the gamut in sizes and shapes, so what's right for you depends upon your personal packing preferences. There are durable duffles for optimal stuffing, large canvas totes for folding up an extra outfit or two, and even hybrid types with secret roller wheels. But all of these bags are built for holding a select amount of belongings, which can help streamline your packing process to include only the essentials for short stays away. So while we can't promise a stress-free Thanksgiving dinner with your crazy uncle, we can promise a light and tight travel experience.
Flit to and from all of your upcoming weekend plans by slinging one of the sleek and fall-hued options ahead over your shoulder. Whether you're staying away for one night or three, these weekenders are here to help you do it in style.
