Weekend Warrior is the ultimate lightweight travel bag

Taking a short break can be a great way of refreshing your mind and seeing somewhere new. Wherever you choose to go, this travel bag will be the ideal companion.

  • What are the advantages of taking a weekend break? You don’t have to eat into your vacation allowance, and you only need to pay for one night’s accommodation.
  • What are the best short break destinations? In the USA, it’s worth spending a weekend in New York or New Orleans. In Europe, try Paris or Venice.
  • What bag should I take on a weekend away? The Weekend Warrior is specifically designed for short adventures, with over 30 great features.

Most travel bags are aimed at frequent flyers or folks who enjoy one big adventure each year. But taking two weeks off work isn’t the only way to explore. Weekend breaks are really popular nowadays, in part because they are more time and cost efficient. It’s surprising just how much you can see in a couple of days.

The Weekend Warrior is designed specifically for such overnight excursions. This lightweight travel bag is packed with features and able to shapeshift from a backpack into a duffel/briefcase style bag.

How should you pack for a weekend away?

With only 48 hours at your disposal, organization is a very important part of any short break. Essentially, every minute you spend folding clothes is a minute taken away from sightseeing.

In recognition of this dilemma, the Weekend Warrior bag has been equipped with a multitude of useful features. In fact, you will find more than 30 smart design choices in total.

Here comes the weekend!

On the outside, the bag is ambiguous. This is because you can use the Warrior as either a backpack or a shoulder bag. It also has a split personality inside, with one section for lifestyle stuff and another for your tech.

What features should you look for in a travel bag?

We would say that weatherproofing is pretty important, along with multiple pockets and security features. The Weekend Warrior covers all these bases and many more.

Rain? No problem

For starters, the bag is water resistant and very durable. This is important on a short break — you only have limited time, so it’s sometimes necessary to wander around in less-than-perfect conditions.

Pockets in the straps

The tuck-away straps have integrated pockets for easy access to small items. One pocket has a zipper for better security, while the others are designed for sunglasses and lip balm. The bag also has an expandable water bottle pocket on the outside, and a hidden pocket for your passport and money.

Easy access

On the inside, a clamshell design keeps things organized yet accessible. There’s a neoprene sheath for your laptop, while the lifestyle section has a large compartment for clothes. You will even find dedicated pockets for your notebook and toiletries.

“Most luggage is [like] a black hole, meaning frequently misplaced items and frustration.…We thought we would put an end to this by creating our own bag. A bag [which is] perfectly designed for outdoor adventures and everyday travel…After a year of development and numerous prototypes, we are excited finally to [be able to] announce the birth of the WEEKEND WARRIOR BAG!” — Dulo Supply Co. on Kickstarter

The highlights

This carry-on bag should hold everything you need for a weekend away, including a change of clothes. In spite of this, it’s pretty lightweight and compact.
