23 Travel Bags That Aren't A Pain To Carry

There's no doubt the duffel bag is a great travel companion. Its oversized-ness and flexible dimensions are an over-packer's dream. (You never know when you'll need multiple pairs of shoes, right?) But, when your weekender's handles and straps aren't situated just so, you might find that your go-to travel gear is actually a real pain — hitting your legs with each step and straining your back throughout your commute.
If bruises and sore muscles don't sound like the accessories you were planning to bring for your weekend R&R, there's a fix for that. Travel cases with adjustable straps (that can be worn crossbody or over your shoulder) and a few wheeled options, too, will help you bid adieu to any unwanted side effects without compromising on space. Ahead, 23 hassle-free, pain-free solutions. Bon voyage, indeed.
