If you’re heading out on a weekend to be with yourself, a great bag can make for a better trip. Here’s what to look for when picking a bag for that solo weekend.
Everyone Loves Old School Style
Start by picking a format. If you’re heading to luxuriate in a hotel, or need to bring a suit, consider a duffel bag, but if you’re roughing it, or have a lot of flights to make, consider a roomy backpack.
For Work and Play
Also look at how it blends with your other luggage. If you’ve got a rolling bag with a telescoping handle, for example, get a weekend bag with a sleeve that fits onto the rails, making it easier to haul.
Time to Turn Some Heads
Material also matters. You’ll want something that’s hard-wearing, especially if this bag will be seeing the inside of a lot of trunks and cargo holds, but also stylish, so it stands out.
Keep Your Arms Free
If you’re going the backpack route, pockets are your best friend. Look for a laptop pocket that’ll fit your travel sidekick, exterior organizers for easy access to the stuff you need right away, and roomy interiors for all your stuff.
From the Gym to the Resort
And, of course, don’t forget style. A bag that looks good is worth it, especially if it has the features your need.
