The Weekender Bag

Up until a few months ago, I carried my trusty Vera Bradley bag from high school on weekend getaways. Anyone else with me on this?? I recently came across this tidbit on Filson’s website:

Pity the man who carries a gym bag on weekend getaways. Not only because he looks like a kid packing for a sleepover, but also because it says something about him: he doesn’t get away much. But, even if the trip is rare, these canvas bags project the right mix of well-travelled sophistication, casual irresponsibility and, of course, style. Not quite as stuffy as a leather bag, but still refined. The way a weekend should be. 

With weekend getaway season right around the corner, below are my top luggage picks:
