Welcome to Travel Week, a seven-day stretch where we celebrate our wanderlust with the best buys on everything from stylish packing cubes to keep you organized to once-in-a-lifetime vacations. Whether you’re planning a local staycation or traveling across the world, adventure awaits. Away we go!
Lengthier trips away call for breaking out our best rolling luggage. But what about two- to three-day escapes? For the quick getaway, we need a travel bag that will allow us to sail smoothly through various micro-jaunts via plane, train, camper, and automobile. It’s the kind of bag that possesses the multi-faceted ability to hold all of our travel outfits and accessories without weighing us down — all while still looking stylish. We're talking about the weekender bag.
The best weekender bags run the gamut in terms of size and shape. What's right for you depends upon your personal packing preferences. There are durable duffles ripe for overstuffing, large canvas totes for folding up an extra outfit or two, and even hybrid types with secret roller wheels to tote on multi-terrain. Because each of these bags is built for holding a select amount of belongings, they will ultimately help streamline your packing process to include only the essentials for short stays away.
Flit to and from all of your future adventures by slinging one of the options ahead over your shoulder. Whether you’re traveling for one night or three, these are the best weekender bags to help you do it in style.
