Basically an over-packer’s (like me) dream bag.
One thing I hate is when a bag is really heavy before you even put anything in it. This Weekender is super lightweight, while also being very sturdy. The wide shoulder straps are comfortable on the shoulder when the bag is filled. The short handles come in handy when you don’t want to carry a bag this large on your shoulder. A soft leather zippered pocket on the outside is a chic, classic detail; while keeping it very
appropriate for guys and girls. You will use this bag for a long time!
I was so sick of traveling, even just away for the weekend, with about 4 different bags.
I live in the city, so I hate suitcases (up and down subway stairs is the worst), and I have a small
apartment so storage space is very limited. I made myself this weekender – which I actually
think you could fit a weeks worth of clothes in, and now I travel with just one giant bag.
It folds up nice and neat (and small) for storing when not in use.
Dimensions: 26” wide x 16” tall x 9” deep
