10 Bags to Prepare You for All Your Spring Travels

With spring here and summer just around the corner, it’s time to start thinking about the right bag to carry your stuff. After all, why should your wardrobe have all of the seasonal fun? Especially considering the fact that the warmer months mean traveling, days at the beach, and afternoons at the park—all occasions where a bag is an absolute essential. From totes to stylish backpacks to weekenders, here are the 10 best bags for the days and weeks ahead.

1 Gucci

Leather-Trimmed Appliquéd Coated-Canvas Backpack

Spring and summer are all about getting out of town, so how about a bag that makes you look like a world traveler?

$3,980, mrporter.com

2 J.W. Hulme

Small Duffle Bag

Prepare yourself for the endless parade of weekend trips by getting something stylish and durable to handle all of those car trunks and overhead bins. 

$1,245, jwhulmeco.com

3 Ernest Alexander

The Clark Weekender

Of course, if you don’t want to go all in on leather, but still want something that will look considerably more sophisticated than that old gym bag, this waxed-cotton weekender from Ernest Alexander will do the trick. 

$355, ernestalexander.com

4 Everlane

The Pocket Tote

For the beach, for the gym, or even for work. A sturdy tote is a great all-arounder.

$48, everlane.com

5 Filson

Medium Grab ‘n’ Go Tote

If it’s an afternoon in the park, on the other hand—when all you need to stow is a football, some sunscreen and a few bottles of water—a grab-and-go tote like this is perfect.

$90, filson.com

6 Raden

A22 Carry

If you’re traveling by plane at all this summer, an indestructible and affordable carry-on suitcase is a must. This one is even smart enough to use the handle to tell you how much it weighs. 

$295, raden.com

7 Adidas

NMD Duffle Bag

If you plan on hitting the beach or the pool (or any other potentially shirtless activities) later this summer, you’re probably also going to want to hit the gym. Which means you’re going to need a good gym bag. 

$119, endclothing.com

8 Prada

Saffiano Leather Briefcase

Since you’re upgrading your bags for play, may as well upgrade your bag for work, too. 

$1,910, mrporter.com

9 Rimowa

Topas Multiwheel 78cm Suitcase

A full-fledged suitcase is a must have for longer trips. And given the track record of most airline baggage handling, the tougher, the better. 

$1,640, mrporter.com

10 Jack Spade

Tech Oxford Slim Toiletry Kit

Along with a great travel bag, you’re going to want a great toiletry bag. It’s a lot classier than a Ziploc. 

$98, jackspade.com
