1. An incredibly lightweight bag fit to hold 50 lbs. that easily folds up for packing within another bag.

Promising Review: "The bag weighs nearly nothing. Full, it holds the same amount as a large suitcase. In my most recent trip, this carried a full 50 lbs.+ to its destination. Those items were intended to go in one and only one direction, (not come back). So, this is ideal. It was unloaded at its destination, folded up into nothing, and will return empty, weighing less than a pound." —Amazon Customer

Price: $20.24+ (available in four colors)


2. A printed Herschel duffle sure to get you chased by street-style photographers.

Promising review: "Very sharp bag. I've received several compliments in hotel lobbies and airports. The shoe compartment is fantastic, I don't know how I lived without one before! I usually put my shoes and all my socks in it and it cuts down on clutter in the main bag! The liner is also a nice touch, it makes the inside of the bag much brighter and you can actually find what you're looking for in it." —WGC

Price: $59.99+ (available in 23 color combos)

3. A sharp travel tote equipped with lots of handy pockets.

Promising Review: "This is a very nice bag. Strong, feels good, looks good, lots o' pockets. This is my go-to overnight bag. I keep it in the trunk of my car loaded with a change of clothes, toiletries, and sundry drugs (most legal, LOL). Nice and strong zippers. I like it, so will you." —Douglas

Price: $29.99+ (available in five color combos)

4. A Vera Bradley carry-on as bright as your future.

Promising Review: "I love this bag! It was great for my weekend trip to Chicago. I was worried that it would be too big to carry on, but that was not an issue at all! It even fit under the seat, (economy seating, at that). Another plus is the print. It's so attractive and eye-catching. All in all, this bag made me look and feel good. I can't wait to purchase another print, too!" —Traci

Price: $66.45+ (available in 22 color combos)

5. A Betsey Johnson emoji weekender that won't get lost in a sea of plain, black luggage.

Promising Review" "I used it for a weekend in the mountains. I was able to pack several sweaters, jeans, shoes, and a light jacket to wear indoors. It's well-made. There are compartments inside the bag, one is zippered. There is also a zipper compartment on the outside. I think it will serve me for years to come." —Amazon Customer

Price: $69.99

6. A sleek Nicole Miller duffle — your new go-to.

Promising Review: "This is a gorgeous, smart-looking duffle bag. The color is prettier in person than in the picture. Perfect for at least four days of travel, more if you're a light packer. I bought this because last year I found the matching under-seat weekender bag elsewhere and thrilled that I now have a matching carry-on travel set good for a week's travel." —honeybee143

Price: $49.85+ (available in five color combos)


7. A dapper London Fog number to stand up to wherever the road — or the sky — takes you.

Promising Review: "So far, I love it. It's very attractive and sturdy. I've taken it on a weekend trip and it fits in the overhead. Not so heavy that it feels bulky, but offers plenty of room for my clothes." —Amazon Customer

Price: $55.99

8. A tropical-ish bag begging for a beach weekend.

Promising Review: "This duffle bag was great for a four-day road trip! I was able to fit five days' worth of clothes, plus my toiletries! The shoe compartment is very large. I was able to fit a pair of tennis shoes and two pairs of flip-flops in it. It even had room for me to stick my accessories in!" —lbtiger88

Price: $39.95+ (available in five color combos)

9. A cool Adidas gym bag with a ventilated design that will allow it to easily moonlight as a weekender.

Promising Review: "Absolutely LOVE this bag. I always get compliments on it. It easily fits everything I need to hit the gym before work, (change of clothes, full-size towel, makeup bag, flat iron, a pair of shoes, flip-flops, etc). I've never had a bag with a shoe tunnel before and I love it. I always had to keep a small tote inside my gym bag so that my shoes wouldn't dirty my clothes. There are plenty of pockets inside for toiletries, keys, etc." —Sarah

Price: $40.13+ (available in 22 color combos)

10. A durable LeSportsac you can carry around forever.

Promising Review: "As you would expect from LeSportsac, sturdy, high quality large weekender bag. If you've never tried a LeSportsac and travel a fair bit, you will love LeSportsac. They are super lightweight on their own, so right off the bat, that's a win before you even start. Honestly, pick a print or plain that appeals to you and try just one piece. You'll be back. I purchased the matching tote of this duffle." —K Young

Price: $69.95+ (available in a variety of patterns, color combos).

11. A striped Madden Girl looker that's a party on the inside, too.

Promising Review: "I love this little bag. It is much smaller than a standard duffel bag — EXACTLY what I was looking for! Perfectly fits my tennis shoes, water bottle, and workout clothes. The quality of the bag is excellent, as well." —CR

Price: $19


12. A preppy striped weekender with a snap-on shoulder strap.

Promising Review: "I bought this bag to use as my carry-on for our trip over to Europe. It was amazing. The bottom kept my shoes separated from my other luggage, which was a must as they were dirty after walking for days. The inside has awesome side compartments to stash and store all my little odds and ends. It fit underneath the seat in front of me on the plane, and also in the overhead bin when needed." —Heather G.

Price: $99.99 (also available in a mosaic pattern)

13. A damask duffle for when you need your bag to stand out from the pack.

Promising Review: "This bag is perfect for my daughter! We go camping all of the time and all of her warm clothing for the week fits. I also use it as a gym bag every now and then. The bag has multiple compartments for all of our essentials and comes with a shoulder strap, making it easy to carry anywhere. Water does not easily get inside, so all of our stuff stays dry." —amanda emerson

Price: $17.98+ (available in a variety of patterns, color combos)

14. A sleek Samsonite that even has a fleece-lined pocket for your phone.

Promising Review: "This bag was intended for inland travel, but the size works for overnight to a few days. There are pockets everywhere in this bag, so I can separate shoes and toiletries, and the main compartment is easily accessible. The strap is adjustable and comfortable on my shoulder for extended periods. I took one of these bags on several international trips and was able to comfortably use it as a carry-on with a stroller and toddler in tow." —Bernice Nichols

Price: $99.99 (also available in dark blue)

15. A framed Vera Bradley bag for when your travels require a smidge of colorful structure.,

Promising Review: "This bag has enough room for my shoes and clothes for a long weekend. There is a front zip pocket and side pocket, as well! I love this pattern and the price was very reasonable for Vera Bradley." —Paula Wilford

Price: $61.98+ (available in 22 patterns)

16. An XL leather bag befitting a 'gram-able vacay.

Promising Review: "This bag is the best leather 'duffle' bag I have found, hands down. I had been researching and looking for a bag that had a few specific qualities: leather, handles and shoulder strap, fits airline carry-on standards, leather color (not black), and zippered compartments. I wanted something that was big enough to be a travel bag and fit enough clothes, but also small enough to carry on a plane. I had a really hard time finding a bag that was the right dimensions for me, most of them were too small (weekend, or day bags), or way too big (had to be checked at the gates). This one fit perfectly." —Aaron M

Price: $129.99 (available in nine colors)

17. A perfectly sized nylon tote to fit under your airplane seat.,

Promising Review: "It fits under an airline seat. It's lightweight enough to carry through the airport with the cross-body strap. Nice pass through for suitcase handle, sturdy bottom. and good organization pockets." —rschlz

Price: $102.62+ (available in two colors).

18. And a calfskin doctor's bag that makes it look like you mustn't be late for some very important, luxurious date.

Promising Review: "I like to travel by train and this bag is perfect. The color is so pretty and the craftsmanship is wonderful. The zippered area at the bottom is very handy for smaller things that might get lost in the bigger compartment. I've used this for a couple of short trips and it holds everything I need. It might be a little heavy for some people, but I don't mind that at all." —Debra Hall Werth

Price: $199
