Ralph Lauren Large Varsity Duffle – $159.99 SALE (reg. $225.00)
At 20″ long, it’s more like a Medium duffel, but guaranteed it’ll get you and your weekend gear from home to your destination.
A good looking weekend bag is a must. Two or three day trips are just long enough to re-boot your system, without totally disrupting your professional life. And just because you’re taking off for a bit of R&R doesn’t mean you should travel like a schlub. Look good, put your stuff in a great looking bag like this Ralph Lauren Varsity Duffel, and go. Want proof that paying attention to your appearance while traveling makes a difference? Click here for that story.
Even though the RL Varsity Duffle is marked way down, for a lot of guys dropping $160 on a duffel bag is just not reasonable. If that’s the case, try to pick up one of the last Tommy Hilfiger Fieldhouse Standard Duffel bags. They’re half the price, and take it from a proud owner of one (me)… they are seriously nice.
It’s also fair to say that the Hilfiger bag must be strongly, uh… “inspired” by the RL style. Both have stripes, leather accents, and just enough color to pop against your muted airport clothes. Safe travels.
