The Most Essential Mens Weekend Bag

mens weekend bag

When men like to get away for the weekend, they usually pack light. Because of this, a smaller lighter mens weekend bag is a necessary addition to any man’s luggage.  Whereas women need to pack the whole closet when they go for a weekend trip, that’s not the case for men.  The ease of packing one bag does belong to men, so we’ve taken a look at some of these handsome bags for the weekend getaway.

The ideal bag should be lightweight, durable, and stylish.  No matter where the weekend takes you — from a quick flight to the beach or a roadtrip golf weekend — the bag needs to keep up with you.  It has to have room for all of your stuff, and also anything you bring back.  It has to be durable enough to take anything you throw at it (or spill on it).

A very versatile bag that can go anywhere for business or fun, this a great weekend bag for men.  The only drawback is that the Werks Traveler 4.0  just comes in one color and that is black only.

This is a great Rolling Duffel Bag Carry On for a weekend getaway and it has a rolling feature which is part of its charm. It has a U-Shaped opening at the top and very large side pockets with a detachable side strap. This back only comes in koskin black leather as well.  Unfortunately, when it is full it tends to tip over especially when traveling. It is not recommended for men who are over 5 feet for traveling because the handle does not extend to where it is comfortable to roll. More color selection would be a nice addition.

This is a great mens weekend bag from Royce Leather.  It comes in two colors which is an asset and it is large and roomy. The biggest complaint was that it didn’t have front pockets in the customer reviews however it was very loved by customers who did purchase this bag.  There are no pockets in the front and the sizing wasn’t accurate in some cases when the product was shipped to the customer.

High quality leather on a well crafted beautiful weekender travel bag. The brass hardware is high quality and the bag is very sturdy. Heavy duty, quality stitching and seams, the zipper looks to be top quality.  The best part about the bag is that shirts can go in without being folded a bunch of times, and they are easy to unpack.  A heavy duty leather patch on both sides prevents it from falling open completely and provides sides for easy packing.   The mens weekend bag fits great in an overhead compartment on a plane. The  leather has a high end feel and the price is incredible when compared to other more expensive options.  The bag is even bigger than in the picture — well worth the $200 current price tag.   On the downside, the bag has to be aerated when you take it out of the box because it has a heavy glue smell to it that dissipates after a couple days.  The adjustable shoulder strap is not as long as one might expect, but sufficient for a weekender travel bag.

This mens weekend bag is spacious, well made, and functional.   It has a heavy nylon outer fabric, with an inner fabric liner.   The bottom of the main chamber is a web material with a plastic barrier for extra support. This makes the bottom of the bag see through, so you can see what is in the bottom compartment.  Because the bag isn’t as high a quality as the other bags we reviewed, the trim and straps are NOT leather.  This is a vinyl product that looks like leather.   We have concerns about the durability of the bag because of this, but the price tag is much less than other bags.   Even though there is a bottom compartment, it’s hard to access when the bag is full.  This bag is roomy, is made from a thick material, seems well constructed, has a sturdy zipper, and is aesthetically pleasing.  The Tommy Bahama Duffle Bag also fits under the seat in front of you on an airplane, making it one of the best carry on luggage available today.

If you want to comparison shop between duffel bags for the weekend the differences are material and style and shape and do they comply with flight regulations for carry-on bags. It really just depends on your style and what kind of trips you frequent. If you are a camping person you probably want a nylon bag or a backpack that is easily washable.

If you are on business trips you probably want a bag for formal and regular wear so that you have less carry-on luggage. These are all great bags and the only real drawback was they did not come in more colors than just black. You can get bags with more pocket room and style or like the Koskin Leather bag you can get your leather and it’s water treated too. It really just depends on who you are and what your needs are for a mens weekend bag.
