Hands-On: The Everlane Weekender Bag

With an eye toward design, Everlane’s Suede Weekender is a nice travel companion. The leather straps on this bag are one length and wear comfortably over the shoulder or held right in the hand. The stitching in high-stress areas leads me to think this bag will hold up to wear and tear

The water-resistant suede exterior is very handsome in the brown color. The khaki twill lining is almost unnerving in its softness. Also, there is a very sensible zipped interior pocket where you can keep sundry items.

I used this bag over the holidays and I must say it performed superbly. It’s big enough to comfortably fit a half a weeks worth of clothes and two pairs of shoes. But ultimately, it’s best for the weekend getaway, which it’s named for. It fit in the overhead compartment when I took a flight. As well, it was nice just to throw into the trunk of the car and take off.

Everlane itself is a very interesting company. Part manufacturer, part retailer, the company cuts out the middle man and sells directly to the consumer. This results in offering high quality goods at affordable prices.

 

All in all, I would highly recommend this bad. It’s stylish, sleek, and ultimately designed towards people and the reality in which they live. Check out Everlane’s website HERE.
