8 Stylish Weekender Bags That Are Perfect for Quick Getaways—All Under $100
Quick trips are the best—they’re always a well-deserved break from reality, you don’t have to pack too much, and you don’t have to worry about missing out on too much for the brief time you’re away. But whether you’re traveling by air, car, or train, you’ll still want to be smart about packing. While you probably won’t need everything you’d normally want to take on a long vacation—like five different kinds of swimsuits (guilty!)—you’ll still need to make sure you have enough room for all your essentials, without carrying a bag that’s too bulky.
So to help you find a compact-yet-roomy weekender bag that meets these guidelines, we’ve rounded up some of Amazon’s roomiest (and prettiest!) duffel bags, carry-on luggage, and large totes that are all under $100. Many of these bags also boast super useful features to help organize your packing, like shoe compartments, back sleeves that attach to suitcases, and toiletry pouches. Plus, they’re all small enough to fit under your airplane seat or overhead. Take your pick below, and happy traveling!
