A decent weekender bag will carry about 35 liters of personal items and clothing It meets the carry-on requirements and has a variety of external and internal pockets that will help you remain well-organized. In this class there’s a Thule Aion that stands out. Thule Aion has been our top choice and is praised for its design, too It has a stylish design that is stylish even in outdoor or urban situations. The 35-liter bag is fairly durable, with the 600-denier canvas that is abrasion-resistant, and is resistant to mild moisture.
Apart from its great design and construction The Thule Aion has a lot of organization. It has two separate internal compartments (great for keeping dirty and clean clothes) and a laptop sleeve as well as an internal zippered pocket and an external stretch, storage compartments that are zippered to the zipper on the front. The portability is also a plus with two handles for carrying luggage as well as a cushioned (and accessible) belt for the shoulder, as well as an sleeve that can be passed through to secure to a rolling bag. In addition to that, the Aion has the same functionality as a backpack for travel, but is a duffel bag that is ideal for those who want an easier, less cluttered design. It’s priced at $190, which is more expensive than other bags in this category of similar dimensions, but the additional features and sleek design contribute to justify the price.
