So whats your go to travel bag for a 3-4 day trip?

Winter vs Summer?


Always on the look out for the "1 bag" that does it all.

rRecently picked up a Topo travel bag. Folds out flat. Think this might be my go-to.

This goes with me almost everywhere. Multiple compartments, lots of pockets. No wheels, so the shape can be manipulated to fit into any size overhead compartment, never have to check it on the jetway. If it’s too heavy, I’ve packed too much unnecessary stuff. I also have a high quality backpack to handle any spillover.

If a trip is upwards of a week, or requires a lot of bulky outerwear/jackets/etc, then I use Away luggage. I have a carry on size as well as a “medium” and love them.

Trying to be minimal is tough.
Eliminating the ‘what if’ item of clothing and the redundant extra socks. Goes a long way.

will see how this. bags does.

has hideaway back pack straps too

I've packed 9 days of travel in it - 4 days of meetup and 5 days of work. Also packed a backpack with two laptops and 6 pint glasses, 4 whiskey glasses, and two RTIC tumblers.

Same bag will take me to Europe for 12 days.

It's all about smart packing. You don't "need" 50% of what you pack. Wear the biggest items on the plane - pack everything else.

Marmot Long Hauler Duffel - Medium. I LOVE this bag. Very durable. Perfect carry on size. Handles designed for standard duffel carry or backpack carry.
