A weekender bag, like a duffle bag or overnight bag, is one that has sufficient space inside it for clothes and other items a person might need for a weekend trip. Most of these types of bag are made from soft side materials, feature handles and often include a removable strap that makes them easier to carry. They are a common choice for workers, travellers, tourists and students who find themselves travelling for a few days at a time.

Weekender bags are most often used for weekend getaways, as the name implies, and are a very versatile item of luggage. They can be used as carry-on luggage on planes as well as being easy to carry when reaching a destination. They come in a range of materials (as well as colors and styles) but are usually made of something hardwearing such as canvas, polyester or leather and feature an interior liner to keep the contents from getting dirty or crinkled during travel.
