The 10 Best men's weekend bags
Whether you’re a chap about town or country gent, pack up your troubles in style - for a long weekend at least.
A backpack is effective for a brief getaway, especially if the destination is a muddy field and hands must be free to carry lager. This nylon one will also withstand rain.
There are rucksacks out there that would suit those who prefer a smarter or preppy style. This tan canvas bag with its suede base and cream straps is anything but scruffy.
3. Maison Martin Margiela
This brand may be known for its avant-garde designs but the brains behind it are also responsible for understated luggage like this bag.
It's a good job this oh-so-chic holdall is made of treated leather that is water and scratch proof, because the last thing anyone would want is to scuff it.
If you haven't the budget to stretch to the real thing then there's no shame in faking it, you know. This leather-look holdall is a great overnight companion.
6. Louis Vuitton
Those who enjoy the finer things in life will already have a collection of monogrammed luggage courtesy of Louis Vuitton. The "Keepall" is the perfect place to start.
7. River Island
With a slightly squarer shape than the norm, this black canvas and camel-strapped tote is a highly adaptable option: the classic styling should go with everything.
8. Ally Capellino
Capellino's signature styles never date so are a wise investment – the sale has just started so this is the right time to snap up a good quality bag at a reduced price.
This bowling bag is a fine all-rounder. The design is sleek and the perforated surface means it can complement a casual look but would work well with a suit, too.
This duffle is a timeless multi-purpose option, good for carrying gym kits, but just large enough for a weekend away in the country. It's crafted in canvas and leather.
