Heading out on a short trip? You don’t need to pack a full suitcase or even bring a large carry-on. A great option for a short, three-day trip is to use a weekender or duffel bag. These bags are stylish and portable, allowing you to travel light and not get bogged down with luggage. Below are some of our favorites.
This bag from Toupons is a great pick for anyone wanting a durable, canvas weekender. This bag is large enough to hold everything you would need and more for a three-day weekend. It’s also affordable at only $30.
You’re probably familiar with Herschel backpacks, but they also make durable and stylish weekender bags. The duffel bags come in just about every color of the brand's classic backpack so you can mix-and-match or get a bag to complement each other. If you purchase on Amazon, there is a 15 percent off coupon.
This bag from Bluboon is also made out of canvas, but a bit softer and thicker than the Toupons bag. This bag is also spacious and can hold just about everything you would need for a short trip. It also comes in five colors including a bright mint for those looking for a pop of color.
Into floral designs? The Vera Bradley Duffel is perfect. If you’ve seen these bags, you’re definitely familiar with the brand's signature floral and paisley designs. Similar to the Herschel bag, you can mix-and-match or complement the bags with other accessories from the brand. This bag is also under $60, making it a steal for a Vera Bradley bag.
If you’re looking for something more on the designer side, check out this Kate Spade bag. The New York Blake Avenue is one of the least expensive Kate Spade bags but still has the signature Kate Spade detailing and quality. The bag is also made out of a strong nylon making it practical and long-lasting.
Another nylon bag from the Jack and Kate Spade family is the Packable Graph Check Duffel. This bag is under $100 and is very functional. When not using the bag, you can pack it away in your larger suitcase or backpack for easy storage. It's also a great bag to pack away if you're traveling somewhere and know you'll be coming home with extra souvenirs.
Prefer a leather weekender but don’t want to spend over $100? This bag from BAIGIO is perfect. The bag is made of soft leather and even has a shoe compartment to pack your shoes separately.
