5 Best Weekender Bags for Men to Take on Their Next Getaway

Packing for a trip — any trip, big or small, stressful or relaxing — is about to get a whole lot simpler. The weekender bag is perhaps the most underrated piece of luggage a man can own. It’s easier to haul around than wheeling a rolling suitcase, most of them fit with ease inside an overhead compartment, and, what’s more, the best weekender bags offer style that’s a bit more casual, rugged, and laid-back. In short, one of the bags described below could just be the most essential piece of luggage you own, particularly if you favor weekend jaunts versus business trips (and who doesn’t?). The next time you pack up, make sure you’re doing so with nothing but one of the best weekender bags on the market.

There’s perhaps no more fitting name for a weekender bag than the Rambler, right? The sort of name that captures the rugged spirit of adventure (and functionality) that you should seek to harness regardless of the season, correct? Yes, indeed. We love the handsome leather accents and tough charcoal water-resistant waxed canvas.

Perfect to load up with gear for your next trip to see The National play a powerful show, wouldn’t you agree?
