Coolest Weekender Bag for Him or Her

When I travel I like to look put together but not stuffy or uptight. Usually that means a pair of leggings or stretch jeans with a simple Alexander Wang T-shirt (or I’m loving the Rag & Bone T’s right now) a super soft loose sweater, and a great carry on bag. Well, only very recently did I discover my new great carry-on favorite, J. Crew’s Abingdon Weekender $198.00

I LOVE the distressed casual look of this bag while still pulling it together with leather trimmings, handles, buckles, and most importantly the base. Having the base be all leather is the must-have as a lot of canvas carry-on or weekend bags have canvas bottoms, which will wear much faster. This way you can safely put your bag down and not worry about tears or stains like you would with an all canvas bag.

The label on the inside of the bag states ‘Dry Goods and Men’s Furnishings By J. Crew’ but I say this bag is UNISEX – rugged enough for a man and so hunter chic for a woman. Making it a perfect shared bag for weekend road trips, Hampton’s here I come, that won’t have him feeling shy about carrying around your lady weekender. And, this bag is well worth the price, a lot of bang for the buck. Well, time for me to go pack it up, I’m heading off to London tonight and so is my Abingdon.

From J. Crew’s website: Inspired by vintage hunting gear, our Abingdon collection focuses heavily on timeless fabrics and made-to-last construction. You’ll notice recurring details such as rugged waxed cotton canvas, burnished leather trim and brass-finish hardware. We constructed this updated weekender with heavy-duty shoulder straps and added extra reinforcements to help it withstand repeated use. It’s really the perfect bag—tough, roomy and fit for all occasions (we think it’s too good just to be used on the weekend). Adjustable shoulder strap fully extends to 49 3/4″. 8″ handle drop. 17 1/2″H x 26″W x 9 1/4″D. Waxed cotton canvas.
Available in Khaki, Deep Olive, or Slate Grey.
