The Report: The Perfect Weekender
Repeat after us: your gym bag is not your weekender. Despite the fact that they more or less serve the same function, the last thing you want to do is use the same vessel that holds your sweaty gym garb for the stuff you take on a weekend trip. This summer, you will inevitably jet off to somewhere for a quick trip, or take a weekend jaunt off to cottage country. As such, it’s time you invested in a proper bag. Toss that college duffle aside and consider these great weekenders.
