The Best Weekender Bags for Men
While most of us would love to jet away on vacation for longer than just a weekend, quick, two-day trips are often a far more convenient, doable way to travel. One of the major upside of shorter trips is that you can often skip the hefty suitcases and opt for a lightweight, easy-to-carry weekender or duffel bag.
When shopping for a weekender, you should look for a few specific features that will make traveling much easier. For example, a separate shoe compartment is a handy feature that saves space and keeps the rest of your belongings clean. Similarly, many weekenders and duffels double as garment bags, allowing you to carry a suit or other formal wear while avoiding wrinkles. We rounded up our favorite weekenders, from waxed canvas to leather, for all your weekend getaway needs.
