Summer's finally right around the corner, and if you haven't already, you're probably about to put together your travel plans for the season. While a month spent luxuriating in the south of France is all well and good (that's definitely an understatement), a few whirlwind weekend trips closer to home are probably a lot more likely to make it onto your schedule. And even the most notorious over-packer would agree that traveling just outside your city limits for a couple days doesn't exactly require a trunk-sized suitcase — which is why you'll want to score Away's new Weekender bag before you set off on your adventures.
Affordable-chic luggage brand Away knows a thing or two about traveling in style. Earlier this year, it launched a limited-edition rose gold suitcase that sold out in a flash, and it's consistently adding to its collection of highly fashionable, high-quality jet-setting necessities to get you, and more importantly, all your stuff where you need to go. Just in time for summer, the brand has launched its latest travel companion, and it's all you could ever want in a quick-trip bag.
The $245 Weekender bag, which officially dropped on Away's site on April 25, is a durable, modern take on a classic canvas bag, with a similar capacity to the brand's Carry-On rolling suitcase. The lightweight luggage (it comes in well under five pounds when empty) is versatile enough to fit easily in the trunk of your car or the overhead bin on commercial planes — so whether you're headed to a countryside inn or on a quick cross-country trip to visit friends, it's got you covered.
And it wouldn't be an Away bag without thoughtful, innovative design features that make sense for modern life. The Weekender boasts a hidden laptop sleeve which can accommodate on-the-go tech that's up to 15 inches — great for those who can't totally unplug when they leave town — as well as an easy-to-clean shoe compartment to stow your extra pair in transit. Interior zipper pockets provide places for valuables, and slip pockets give you spots for books and tablets.
You can snag the new bag in one of three different color ways to best match your travel style: black, olive, and natural canvas. All three come with a durable leather base and button clasp closure, plus a detachable padded shoulder strap. And while you're shopping for summer vacation, snag the brand's sleek Dopp Kit bag to keep your travel skincare routine organized.
