The Best Weekender Bags for Your Next Getaway

Keep all your short-trip travel essentials organized in style.


For short trips, travel light. The weekender — a carryall or small duffel — is designed to hold enough clothes to keep you looking fresh, whatever grooming products you require (within reason) and a few other daily essentials (e.g. laptop, reading materials, headphones). When deciding on the best weekender for your lifestyle, first analyze function, then hone in on an aesthetic. Do you need a bag for professional business trips? What about a weekend at the lake with your friends? Maybe you’ll be on the slopes for 48 hours? No matter the type of excursion, one of these weekenders will keep your necessities organized and compact, all without compromising classic styling.
