A leather overnight bag is small in size but big on style.
When it comes to stylish travel bags and luggage, leather is where it’s at. A high-quality leather bag is extremely durable, will look better with age and telegraphs that you’re a man who cares about style.
We’ve already discussed the full/medium-sized leather duffle. A leather overnight bag is a smaller version with many of the same pros and cons. But, the well-prepared and rakish traveler has the perfect bag for every occasion and situation.
Pros: Versatile – can be used for work, play, travel and just about anything in between; small (see below, also); lightweight; very stylish; fits only and exactly what you need and nothing else.
I have to be honest and say that I use my medium-sized leather duffle much more than my overnight bag. But that’s a result of the kind of traveling I do. Most of the trips I take are weekend jaunts up to NYC or multi-day stays somewhere, so I need a little more room than a smaller bag affords.
Having said that, it is nice to have a smaller, but equally stylish, leather bag to take with me when I only have to spend one night somewhere. I’ve also used it as an airplane carry-on, when I’ve got to check a suitcase and don’t want to be rolling my carry-on as well.
Perfect For: Day trips, a quick overnight stay, heading to the gym in style; train travel; the guy who’s out in the city all day and doesn’t know where he’s going to end up; rakish carry-on-only airplane passengers.
