In 2020, when the world is less and less limited by borders and travel limitations, we’re all moving around more than ever. Each trip is unique: a different location, different timeframe, different items needed. How, under all of these decisions, are we expected to pack the right things in the right amount of space? Well, luckily, the weekend bag exists. It’s not too big, but big enough for two outfit changes, a wash bag, and other essentials. A weekend bag needs to be easy to carry, durable, and also stylish. We’ve rounded up 5 of the best bag brands doing the weekend bag proud. Take a look below and make your decision.
Lightweight and resilient thanks to its durable nylon canvas body and premium leather accents, Carl Friedrik’s C3-4 Holdall is the ultimate weekend carrier. What’s more, the detachable and adjustable shoulder strap allows you to change between hand-held or shoulder-bearing travelling. Not only that, the bag is packed with organisational pockets including a separate shoe compartment and a 17″ laptop sleeve.
The multi-tasking Bennett Winch Black Leather Weekender Bag is one of our personal favourites. Packed full of useful features such as a protective laptop sleeve and dual waterproof compartments, this bag is as useful as it is sleek. The full grain vegetable tanned leather is immaculate, and in combination with the solid brass hardware, this bag is hard to beat.
Mismo are famed for their simple but effective luggage solutions. With an eye for detail and a love of premium materials, Mismo have perfected the art of functional and stylish bags in their 15 years of business. We’ve picked out the Mismo Black Leather Shopper because of its deceptive size. The large main pocket is complimented by a smaller inside pocket for smaller items. The luxurious full-grain leather bag is perfect for a weekend away and is sure to age gracefully for years to come.
Whether you’re gearing up for a far-away holiday, city break or maybe hitting the gym, you need to be packing light. Easier said then done, really. But you can make the whole packing experience a lot easier with the Steel & Borough’s Freedom Weekender. As the name suggests, the large and easy-to-carry holdall has generous room for all your clothes, sneakers and accessories. The best part? The Steele & Borough bag also features its own drawstring laundry bag – which takes even more stress out of the experience.
