If you’re a frequent traveller, practical and versatile luggages are a godsend. We’re not talking about the rigid four-angled wheelies but a hand-carried (or shoulder-strapped) bag that’s big enough for a few days’ worth of clothing and other essentials. Here’s where the weekender bag comes in handy.

Also known as the duffel, weekenders are not only good for the grab-and-go type of travellers (especially for whirlwind trips) but also for daily use, especially if you’re the gym-before-brunch kinda guy. You can have all your necessities — workout shoes, change of clothes, supplements, gadgets, and more — in one bag. Some even come with compartments to give you a more utilitarian advantage. At the same time, you want to have a kick-ass piece that you can show-off without looking like a hippy backpacker.

We’ve narrowed down five latest weekender bags as your ultimate companion wherever the wind takes you. So make sure you stand out in the crowd with these luxe-looking duffels that are equal parts style and functionality.
