I really wanted to like this tote...I have the Day tripper. I really need the weekender size, but I am thinking that may not be the tote I need. The Day Tripper is just too small for me. I was disappointed in the quality. $150 for a tote is a lot of money. I thought the inside lining was a little cheap looking, I realize it is washable. Not sure about this one, for the price. I traveled with once and it got really heavy. Even with the shoulder strap it was not comfortable. I do like that sleeve that slips over your roller bag. I would order the larger size and try it out, but the price is holding me back.
I haven’t used the bag yet, but I was pretty disappointed in the color. I first ordered the I ordered the meow print, which I hated in real life. I returned that and instead purchased the natural and Olive day tripper. On the website, the bag appears to be a nice creamy color. In real life, natural = dingy oat color.
I plan to keep the bag since it’s the bag I like the most with the trolley sleeve feature.
I need one in every color combo ever. I can’t say enough about this bag... but I’ll try!!! Beautiful bag. Excellent craftsmanship. Fabric is amazing. It’s lightweight but extremely strong. Perfect stitching! (I have a bad taste for poor stitching.) The interior lining is awesome. Durable and the white makes it easy to see things. It’s HUGE - large enough to hold more than I need and I’m an overpacker big time. I’ve asked my husband for an identical “backup” in case mine ever gets (Heaven forbid) stolen - because let’s be real: this thing isn’t going to get destroyed. 10/10!!
I can’t say enough about this bag! I looked into it after reading a travel blogger’s recommendation. The website is incredibly descriptive and the videos left me feeling like I had seen the bag in person. It is so stinkin’ functional! Slides over your luggage handle for easy transport. Cross body straps offers an alternative if you have other shoulder bags to carry. It got dirty going through airport security but knowing it could be washed kept me from worrying. My laptop fits in the inside pocket, and I use the front outside pocket for quick access of cell phone and passport. The pink leather tassel is fun and also makes opening the zipper easier. The bag is big enough to stuff full, which meant I could pack the rest in a carryon and still travel lightly. It easily fits under plane seat. Once in Greece, I emptied it out and used it as a beach and pool bag. It’s waterproof and worry free. I have larger duffle bags that I figured were similar in size to the weekender so the day tripper was the right size for me and filled a void in my travel gear lineup. I got the olive bottom which I recommend because you will inevitability be setting it on the ground or sound. Also recommend dark straps because you will carry it a lot and a light color would show dirt and wear faster. I think the color scheme I chose was perfect and the pink accents kept a feminine quality.
I travel a lot for work. While it's regional, I pack a lot as I workout etc & am usually gone for 2-3 days at a time. My small roller bag was never enough but my large roller too much. I had another bag I would use but it drove me crazy as it didn't zip close & didn't fit on top of my roller bag. This Weekend bag is amazing. The size is perfect & the best part of it is the slip to go over the handle so it never falls off my roller bag as I'm traveling. It's great construction & very sturdy. If you're on the fence about purchasing this bag, you won't be disappointed!
