Lengthier trips away are not exactly in the cards these days, but weekend escapes and quick getaways are on the rise, and a travel bag can help us sail smoothly through various micro-jaunts via train, camper, and automobile. It’s the kind of 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 ripe for over-stuffing, 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 sleek weekenders to help you do it in style.
At Refinery29, we’re here to help you navigate this overwhelming world of stuff. All of our market picks are independently selected and curated by the editorial team. If you buy something we link to on our site, Refinery29 may earn commission.
