Are you heading for a weekend getaway? Most likely, you won’t want to lug your big suitcase. While longer trips require bigger luggage, short weekend getaways call for the eponymous weekender!
The large and roomy bags, which are typically soft-sided, aim to be carry-on friendly for smaller modes of transportation like a jet, helicopter or a boat. Lucky you if you’re yachting around or have your plane! For the rest of us, the weekender is a perfect carry-on for our car or a train ride.
Some weekenders now offer little roller wheels and extending handles if you’re a particularly heavy packer. For the most part, you’ll find them with long double handles or a cross-body strap. Check out our top picks below.
1. Longchamp Le Pliage Nylon Weekender
This bag is a jet-setter’s must-have. The classic Longchamp design is spacious, light-weight, and durable. And the price tag is easy to handle for this iconic bag!
2. Mark And Graham Maddie Overnighter
We realize this is an “overnighter,” but for a light packer, this stylish bag is most definitely a weekender. Plenty of storage pockets on the inside, a detachable strap and a zippered bottom compartment make this bag a chic organizers dream!
3. Neely & Chloe No. 21 Weekender Tote
This classic design is perfect for a beach getaway. Pastel accents keep the large tote stylish and an excellent accent for nearly every kind of outfit.
4. Tibi Dimanche Bag by Myriam Schaefer
“Luxuriously crafted in Italy, the “Dimanche” is made from the finest menswear plaid from Spain and is thoughtfully designed with Paris-based designer Myriam Schaefer.” Tibi, you sold us at the design. Yes, this is a bit pricier, but considering you’ll be using the bag for years to come, it’s a worthwhile investment.
