Four outfits for the each of us, pajamas, bathing suits, sandals, toiletries, etc. Very impressed. It's very sturdy but lightweight." β€”Ashley bania

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

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." β€”Amazon Customer

We had a week's worth of clothes in each bag, including shoes, and it held it all with no problem! I do highly recommend them! We bought four if that tells you anything." β€”randie1995

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." β€”WGC

    5. A charming print in a manageable size (with a long shoulder strap!) for setting your luggage apart from the pack.

    Promising review: "I bought this bag to use as a carry-on. I liked the fact that it had long handles and also a long strap to give carrying options. I used both. Also, the handles were long enough to loop over my the handles of my luggage. When you are traveling with multiple bags, that is helpful! This bag fit great in overhead compartments and also on an overcrowded flights, I have put it under the seat. The side pockets were helpful in holding snacks, boarding passes, and passports." β€”Italygirl

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." β€”Sarah

    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." β€”K Young

    Promising review: "This was a perfect size to pack clothes, toiletries, and two pairs of shoes for a four-day weekend trip. By leaving my running shoes out and using compression bags, I could easily use this bag for a weeklong trip. No defects were present in the materials or stitching on arrival. The bag feels sturdy and was comfortable to carry." β€”HeartRN

    13. A preppy striped weekender with a snap-on shoulder strap might just make you regret overpacking a lot less.

    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." β€”Heather G.

The bag is spacious and has many compartments for organization. I like that it includes zip compartments as well, which is a nice feature. This bag is perfect for a weekend trip or as an extra carrying bag for a night. I use this bag to travel back and forth from school and it is very durable. The adjustable strap is comfortable and useful for carrying. I think the water resistance feature is helpful especially since I usually store electronics and books in the bag. Overall, I’m really happy that I found this travel bag, and it has become my go to for whenever I need to travel." β€”JCCK

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." β€”amanda emerson

    Price: $14.28+ (available in a variety of patterns, color combos)

    16. An XL leather bag more or less made for 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." β€”Aaron M

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