Finding the perfect canvas weekender bag is a Goldilocks’ mission.
The ideal weekender bag is somewhere between heavy and light – big enough to carry everything for three-nights and small enough to squeeze onto a flight.
I personally love the idea of duffels that double up as gym bags. You get more use out of them and the cost per wear goes down-da-da-down (*sung in a Marian Hill voice*).
Extra points to your Hogwarts house of choice if the bag is canvas.
Canvas is a beach-friendly, mountain-friendly, city-friendly, let’s-face-it-anywhere-friendly material that I’m currently obsessed with. It’s practically perfect in (almost) every way.
The main downside to canvas bags are the handles. Look for solid construction because most don’t hold up well over time.
And make sure the cross-body strap (if there is one) is something you are comfortable with. Like with all travel style, comfort trumps fast-fashion.
So without further ado, here are eight stylish and comfy canvas weekender bags.
Pair this two-tone grey and champagne pink canvas weekender bag with a floral skater dress (or solid colored athletic wear) for an effortlessly chic ensemble. The Seventeen London duffel bag is subtly feminine but jam-packed with pockets.
Think external side pockets, zipped pockets, internal sleeves, and a big front pocket. If you’re a pocket lover (me), stuff all your quick-access knick-knacks in here (sunglasses, reef-safe sunscreen, journal, etc).
And if you love neat packing, this canvas weekender bag will bring out your inner Monica Geller (you’ll be able to slide and stack all your packing cubes in here – no problem).
The Ulgoo Tote is a budget-friendly statement piece. Choose from a deck of black-and-white prints (polka dots, stripes, zig-zags) or opt for the base style – a sleek black look.
The bag, a sturdy beach-vacation-ready tote shaped by artificial PU leather, is big but not huge (more deep than wide).
It’s a classic canvas weekender bag.
The ban.do weekender bag is luxuriously big. With stand-out soft blue fabric, the ban.do bag, accented by chic typography, is all-around dreamy.
It’s perfect for longer vacations (five to six days). The main compartment is roomy – very roomy. If Mary Poppins owned a travel bag, it would be this ban.do tote.
And this first-class canvas weekender bag is no exception.
During a stormy and overcast vacation, the ever-bright and cheery, yellow highlighted, waterproof Jaydyn B canvas weekender bag is a strong choice.
The material is thick and sturdy. The strap is snug, tight, and long. At heart, the Jadyn B tote is a gym bag. But it’s also the perfect size for an airplane carry-on (*wink, wink*).
The Malirona canvas weekender bag is chic. Enough said. With vintage prints and an intentionally faded color palette, the Malirona bag lifts off the pages of a 20th-century travel magazine.
Old-world style meets carry-on regulations in this just-enough duffel. The Malirona bag is just big enough to fit all the essentials for a weekend trip and small enough to not be a burden while on-the-road.
It’s Goldilocks approved.
The HaloVa Duffle feels like a sleek, business-trip-savvy electronics bag (the design allows for oodles of camera gear, two laptops, and a few loose wires).
If you’re looking for a canvas weekender bag to complement an already-packed suitcase or just a laptop bag with a little more breathing room, this is a small, compact option.
My dad has a coffee-colored version of this black canvas weekender bag. The bag is mammoth but the weight is even.
The Plambag’s complex composition is nylon-based. The soft fabric is separated by a series of zippers, opening up to pocket compartments, main compartments, and expandable compartments.
The Herschel Strand duffel bag is built to last. The color is gorgeous and the canvas is durable. It’s easy to carry and stylish to boot.
Bonus points for versatility. The Herschel Strand duffel bag is a gym bag, every-day work bag, quick weekend trip bag, and everything in between.
