Traveling is one of the most rewarding things a person can do (aside from beating Contra, of course) — the places you'll see, the people you'll meet, the Dr. Seuss books you'll skim through. And because your biggest worry should be catching the puddle jumper to that festival in Ibiza, we've established a comprehensive list of top-quality bags, travel kits, and the accessories you'll need to make your journey (essentially) worry free.
A sturdy bag made from burnished antique leather, the British Belt Co.'s Holkham Weekender
is what classed-up guys like Burt Reynolds use when they take vacations to places like Morocco to buy new rugs. It's that good.
Of All Threads Navy Geo Print Weekender Bag
The Jonah Hill of weekender bags, this number would have no qualms being the life of the party accompanying Seth Rogen on wild trips. However, the leather straps and accents give it that Moneyball
performance to let you know it means business.
This Holkham Messenger from the British Belt Co.
is more handsome than Mark Ruffalo, more rugged than Temple of Doom
Indiana Jones, and features better stitching than Mickey Rourke. Nab this one and people will likely assume you're someone very important, like a podiatrist, movie star, or a captain of sorts.
Field & Stream Huntington Canvas Laptop Brief
Whether bolting around town or into the office, a durable canvas bag should always be in your arsenal. Check out this oil-finished number from F&S that features a quick-release shoulder strap.
Buxton Black Leather Dopp Briefcase
Equipped with an interior laptop sleeve and accented with gunmetal hardware, this black leather number from Buxton is handsome enough to fit in at the office, but rugged enough to take you out for the night. Like Don Draper, except without all the annoying children, casual affairs, and rampant identity issues.
Bey-Berk Deluxe Travel Mate
If Wes Anderson were to cast a travel kit that would play alongside Bill Murray and somehow end up redeeming Owen Wilson, this Bey-Berk Travel Mate would be a shoe-in. Your personal grooming items aside, the leather and suede Travel Mate comes complete with a 6oz flask, a full deck of playing cards, a 5pc shoe shine kit, and a fully decked out manicure set. Solitaire just got a whole lot more
Bey-Berk Travel Shaving Set
Typically, a hotel room is a place to catch some z’s at the end of the day, meaning you should exert minimal effort on time-consuming things like questionable pay-per-view browsing and shaving. To help you knock off the latter, check out this Bey-Berk shave kit that touts a chrome-plated Mach-3 razor and pure badger hair shave brush.
Flight 001 4-in-1 Adapter
Avoid depleted batteries and superfluous late-night trips to sketchy corner stores with this 4-in-1 adapter from Flight 001. It adapts to outlets in over 150 countries and is small enough to fit inside of your un-picked pockets.
Quirky iPad Mini Crossover Case
Keeping your papers in order so you can focus on more important things, this iPad Mini Crossover Case will protect your tablet from unfortunate falls and unfortunate failures to show your ticket at the gate.
LSTN The Troubadour Headphones
Long trips warrant good playlists. Good playlists deserve to be listened to through good headphones. Look no further than LSTN's Troubadour earphones. Bonus: each pair is uniquely made from reclaimed wood, and a portion of sales from every pair bought goes straight to charity.
Quirky iPad Mini Web Case
If you're more into the disorganized organization thing, the web case is the play. Like the minimalist crossover case, this will ensure all your important docs stay securely fastened to your iPad, but instead of a neat cross-strap system, you'll get a secure mesh web of chaos!
