Our favorite travel bags and backpacks to take on your next vacation


The weather is finally warming up and that itch to travel is growing stronger and stronger. We understand the feeling, and fully support your need to get out of town.

We also want to make it easy for you. So whether you're looking to sneak away on a summer Friday, take advantage of a long weekend, or take an extended vacation that you've got all booked and waiting, we've got you covered in the luggage department.heine diaper tote backpack

As everyone knows, all bags are not created equal. You don't need your carry-on bag for a trip to the beach, and that convertible tote, while cute, will not sustain you on your two-week getaway. To help you find exactly what you need, we've broken things into categories for you: day trip, weekend away and extended stay. And we've picked out some of our personal favorites, as well as some of the best-reviewed bags and those most recommended by industry professionals.

You want simple? No problem. Looking for something with all the bells and whistles? We've got that, too. And who knows, maybe having one of these bags in your collection will even inspire you to get out more. We hope so!Here at CNN Underscored, we're big fans of MZ Wallace. What continues to impress us about the brand is the overall quality of the bags. Each bag, tote and backpack features premium hardware, leather and nylon which helps make the bags incredibly durable. They all can stand the test of drops and spills, and clean up is relatively a breeze. Plus, the leather finishes actually look better with use (its the same natural Italian leather used by Louis Vuitton). But probably the most important feature when it comes to traveling is its spacious interior, which can easily fit multiple items such as your laptop, clothing or wallet. And if you're tight on storage space, the bags can compress down and be stowed inside one of the detachable pouches (the size of about a large clutch) that come with the tote.

If you're going out for the day on a hike, bike ride, or a walk around a new city, you'll want to carry something lightweight, but with enough utility to get you from sunup to sundown. Nothing rises to that challenge better than this REI pack. Small enough to convert into a stuff sack, but large enough to carry your water, snacks, maps and other necessities, this pack is perfect for any day trip. The sturdy and lightly padded back panel provides comfort and support. The single-handed drawstring and weatherproof flap offer easy access. And the hose attachment even provides a way to stay hydrated if you want to attach a water reservoir in the built-in internal sleeve.
