Weekend out of town? Choose the right travel bag

Weekend out of town? Choose the right travel bag

It's getting warmer outside. Hence, you want to spend less time at home. There is still some time until the holidays. Weekend trip? Why not! Now it only takes a few clicks on your phone to book your accommodation. Before you set off on your journey, however, there's something most people hate - packing. Often at this stage it turns out that the bag in which we want to take the necessary things is too small or too large. How to choose the right one? Find out in this article.

In this post, we will touch upon the following issues:

  • what to look for when buying a bag,
  • how to adjust the bag to the trip.

Buy reasonably

Important things that are worth paying attention to when buying are primarily the quality of workmanship, material, capacity and additional attributes.

The travel bag should be solid. The seams should hold tight to the fabric to withstand the load.

Travel bags are made of various materials. From leather to synthetics. The weave of the fabric should be dense. It affects its endurance.

The capacity of the bag is also important. The bigger it is, the more you put in it. It is a truism, but it is worth defining your goal before buying, i.e. what benefits you want from a given capacity.

As for additional aspects, some models are equipped with an additional carrying system and can be worn like a backpack. The luggage handle is also important, it affects the convenience of transport. Pay attention to the extra pockets. When the bag is equipped with them, you can hide handy items, such as a wallet, documents or keys. Thanks to this, you will not have to open the main compartment every time.

A travel bag should be universal. In addition, it should be convenient to carry. The weight should be distributed in such a way as not to put too much strain on your body. And functionality, that is, look at how the pockets and access to the main compartment are arranged. This is extremely important when you want to get to your luggage relatively quickly.

Match the bag to the trip

There are 2 basic issues: how long will the trip be, and the clothes of how many people you are going to pack into the bag.

Suppose it is a short weekend trip for 2 people. A 45-liter bag will be useful for such a trip. Its dimensions will not take up much space in the trunk, so you can fit the tent and provisions.

If you are planning a trip alone for a few days, then opt for a bag with a capacity of 30 liters. You should fit all the necessary items of handy equipment into it. Of course, it all depends on how much you want to take with you. A 30-liter bag is the perfect choice to pack your gym or swimming pool stuff.

When you are away for a little longer, then a larger size will come in handy. The 100-liter bag increases the possibilities of packing things. It also takes up much more space than the previous two. Something at the expense of something. Such a large bag is also a good idea to pack the whole family for a weekend trip. You will only be limited to 1 bag instead of 4. This is an important consideration, e.g. when packing your car.
