11 Weekenders So Stylish You'll Want to Book a Vacation

When you boil it down, a bag only has one purpose: to carry stuff. What's the point of having a really great one if you're not gonna use it? To ensure you actually get use out of yours, make sure you invest in a killer, totally head-turning one—one so irresistibly stylish you'll find yourself coming up with excuses to put it to work.

Patagonia Black Duffel Bag

Patagonia named this bag "Black Hole" for a reason: It can hold a limitless amount of stuff. It's also highly tactical. Not only is the material waterproof, the shoulder pads are padded so you don't get ugly rashes dug into your shoulder when lugging a heavy load. Also, the fish rocks. ($129; patagonia.com)

Michael Kors Kent Camouflage Nylon Convertible Duffel

Come for the striking camo. Stay for the convertible design, which allows to pivot this bag between a traditional duffel hand-held or a more ergonomic two-strap knapsack. It's not too shabby on the spatial front, either. ($398; michaelkors.com)
