Between my husband and me, we own one perfect weekend bag. When we travel, it turns into a tug of war (it’s too small to accommodate both of us). It’s time to get a second perfect weekend bag. Here are ten I’m coveting. Which one would you pick?


Above: The Weekend Bag by The Good Flock is made from navy and white canvas, and the handles are made from vegetable tanned leather; $200 from the Frye Museum Store in Seattle. 


Above: The XL Boat Tote by Joshu and Vela is large enough to fit all your weekend needs. The bag comes in white or black canvas with tanned leather; $220.


Above: The Handmade Canvas and Leather Carry All Bag in dark green canvas is $165 from Kaufmann Mercantile. 

Above: The Olive Drab Duffle from San Francicso-based Joshu and Vela is made from thick waxed or natural canvas and tanned leather; $160. The Duffle is available in four different colors.

Above: The Canvas and Leather Fold Weekender in tobacco canvas is $165 and made by Makr. The bag comes in several color and leather combinations and features pockets and a top portion that folds to make the tote larger or smaller.

Above: The Cuyana Canvas and Leather Weekend Bag in black is $120 from Cuyana. It is also available in brown.  

Above: Apolis Mason Courier Bag (versatile enough to use as a weekend bag). It’s available in several colors and costs $228.


Above: The 166 Large Carryall Bag in brush brown canvas is $375 from Billy Kirk.  

Above: The Weekender in solid ash blue is $95 by LA-based Everlane. It’s available in several color options. 

Above: For the lighter packer, consider the Wax Canvas Drawstring Back Pack by AW Andrea Wong; $140. It is available in several canvas colors and leather combinations. 

We’ve also found a canvas bag versatile enough to use as a garden and weekend bag. Check out this post featuring Artifact Bags
