I’ve had an incredibly busy summer traveling almost every weekend, whether it’s for a wedding or a quick getaway. Between air travel and car travel, I knew I needed good luggage that would be both functional and stylish. Which is why I was thrilled when the opportunity arose to test out the Paravel Weekender Bag ($295) – I had heard good things about this particular design from other publishers. This bag is the perfect accompaniment to my cabin trolley; I’ve used it for my laptop, cosmetics, curling iron and other toiletries.
If you’re curious if the Paravel Weekender bag would be a good investment for you, keep reading to get my honest thoughts, plus more details on the design. It’s a great time to start building that holiday wish list early.
What I like about the Paravel weekend bag
Even though the bag itself looks compact, it actually has a ton of space inside. I can fit electronics, multiple cosmetic bags, and any other extras I want readily available with plenty of room to spare. I also constantly use the side straps that slide over the trolley of your hand luggage, so that the bag can rest securely on my suitcase. It makes rushing through the airport a total breeze. When I want to carry it myself, I use the wide and comfortable shoulder strap which is adjustable. Another important feature for me is the inside pocket, where I store things like my passport, wallet and keys – with this dedicated space, there’s no fumbling for necessities.
What’s Worth Noting About Paravel’s Weekend Bag
For $25 more, you can have your initials embroidered on the front of the bag (that’s what I chose). If you want something special, you can have your initials hand painted for an additional $65. I appreciate all the customization options offered by the brand, especially if you are looking to gift this bag. It makes the present more personal. I will also note that the zipper is very strong, but I can easily open or close it without any difficulty. Overall the quality of the bag is very apparent.
