Leaf peeping. Cider tasting. Hiking in state parks and fumbling through scary, small-town corn mazes. The choices for a wholly satisfying weekend getaway are especially abundant this time of year — and nothing amps up the excitement for a quick trip like having a gorgeous weekend bag to stuff with your favorite cozy knits and a suspenseful paperback or two. From waxed-canvas backpacks to the smoothest leather duffel, Etsy sellers have your travel needs in the bag. What are you waiting for? Let’s get packing!

Backpacks

Lined, waterproofed waxed canvas and plenty of straps and buckles keep your gear safe and secure.

Heavy-duty Cordura fabric and a roomy interior make this a smart choice for longer sojourns.

This leather-and-canvas style sports shoulder straps and a carry handle so you can mix things up.

The imported wool felt used in this roll-top backpack is naturally weather-resistant.

Duffels

Hand-crafted from Nappa leather in a small Tel Aviv studio, this nude number is as chic as they come.

When you’re watching for a wild print like this one, baggage carousel mix-ups are a thing of the past.

This simple bag’s American-made denim will only get better with age.

With two outer pockets and a detachable shoulder strap, this canvas style is functional and fun.

Carryalls and Carriers

Pick up a leather bag that’s polished and weathered in equal measure.

Go for a gender-neutral number your beau won’t be embarrassed to carry for you.

Upcycled truck tarps make this roomy tote virtually indestructible.

This sturdy canvas carrier features a notch for Fido to peek out through.

Toiletry Bags

What could be better for corralling cosmetics than waterproof oilcloth in a cheery pattern?

This canvas kit can be customized down to the color of its leather strap (and of course, the initials stamped on the front).

A slim, kilim-inspired pouch saves space in smaller carry-ons.

Consider it a subtle reminder to take your vitamins — even on vacay.
