Buyer’s Guide: 10 Travel Bags for a Weekend Away

These warm summer months will, hopefully, involve the kind of trips and social occasions that require more than just the clothes you have on your back. Weekend trips to your friend’s parents’ lake house, business trips, weddings. Perhaps not so many of the latter two, perhaps not even that many of the former, but if and when these opportunities do arise, make sure you do them in style. We’ve trawled the web, far and wide, to find you the best travel bags available to keep your style-game on point, wherever your weekend takes you.

Patagonia Lightweight Travel Duffle
