Guido Weekend Bag

Never underestimate the importance of a weekend bag. Having a bag that’s big enough for a weekend’s worth of clothing and accessories but small enough for a flight’s carry-on fits all sorts of travel needs.

WeSC’s Guido Bag has an extra large interior that allows room for clothes, shoes, toiletries and more. The interior zippered pocket and exterior pocket provide safe keeping for essentials and other items that you can find and grab easily. In addition to it’s functionality and eye catching colorblock panel design, Guido is a well constructed bag made of durable canvas and features large zippers, studded reinforced handles for durability and resiliency.

Wheelie Flight Deck Luggage

In preparing for an upcoming snowboarding trip, I realized I needed to update/replace my carry-on luggage. What luck that this little guy was on sale. It’s a pretty compact size, yet it has such great organizational compartments that it seems you’d be able to fit in more somehow. My favorite part is the inside mesh zippered ‘halves’ of the interior; it’ll help with zippering it close when it’s stuffed full…looking forward to using it.

Volume-enhancing CRAM zones around the zippers allow for overstuffing when you pick up an extra magazine and snacks for the flight, and front pockets make it easy to access your wallet and boarding pass. Strap your daypack to the main compartment with the Hideaway Snakestack attachment. The Wheelie Flight Deck meets most airline carry-on restrictions, and a removable storage section lets you keep your essentials close at hand after you store the main bag in the overhead compartment. This product is available for US shipment only.

22.5 x 13.5 x 10in

Kuvert Travel Bags

How cool are these? And they fold flat for storage, which is just perfect.

The world in a bag. Sporty, casual and simple, the new KUVERT travel bags are the perfect companion for shopping, sports, weekends, parenting and travel. The unique look is the result of a ground-breaking use of custom-coated polyester fabric: each bag is cut out of a single piece, folded and welded along the edges. This allows the bags to fold flat for storage, yet the engineered expansion is inrivalled in spaciousness. The zippers run in both directions all the way to the base for easy packing and unpacking, and the carrying strap is removable. Kuvert bags are sturdy, water-proof and lightweight – sure to stand by you during your most exciting adventures.

Postalco Travel Wallet

I’ve yet to find an inexpensive travel wallet that I like, but in the meantime here are two that are nice to look at.

This wallet contains three sections, to keep your travel documents from traveling around…Postalco began in Brooklyn, New York. Curious about the international transport of mail, their logo is the carrier pigeon.
Carefully considered and beautifully handmade in Japan, their accessories simply cannot be improved upon.

FlyLite (Remote Wardrobe Manager)

If you’re a frequent flyer and hate lugging your luggage around, there’s a service made especially for you. FlyLite will store items you frequently travel with in your own private ‘iCloset’, where you can drag and drop items you need for your next trip into your virtual suitcase, which will then be delivered (via real suitcase) to your hotel, “fresh, clean and ready to go.” Once you’re finished and ready to move on to another city, you give them a call and they’ll arrange for your suitcase to be picked up and returned, where your items will be cleaned and stored for next time. Luggage free travel sounds good, right? Of course it does: no waiting around the baggage carousel, no standing in lines to check in, not to mention less trips to the dry cleaners…all of that sounds spectacular, which is why it’ll cost you $100 per trip.

Signat and SBL Collection

Perfect for your laptop, this special 1965 re-edition of that classic Samsonite briefcase certainly shows signs of a makeover. Thinner than the old version with a leather handle face-lift, it’s most likely more comfortable to carry around on a daily basis and has the nifty added feature of a removable laptop sleeve. A divider panel and pockets help keep your papers and necessary electronic components organized.

Also, I couldn’t help browsing through some of the other ‘Black Label’ items- the faux crocodile shell of the AI2 I thought was especially eye-catching, along with the Hero, which treats the human form “just like an animal skin, with with the ribcage and sternum at the front of the case and backbone at the back.” (Does anyone else find that very slightly disturbing?)
