Five Bags for Weekends Away

We’ve had more bank holidays recently than most people have had hot dinners. Weird phrase that, isn’t it? Why are hot dinners the benchmark for something that is plentiful? In summer especially, hot dinners aren’t always on the menu, are they? Anyway, there’s another bank holiday approaching, plus don’t we get one at the end of August, too? All present the perfect opportunity to take a long weekend away somewhere nice. That’s what we’ll be doing anyway, and when we do, we might just treat ourselves to a new piece of light luggage to celebrate the occasion while also adding practicality to the excursion.

Here are five examples of what you might need, which we pulled together more quickly than you’ve had hot dinners. Doesn’t work that, does it? Anyway, scroll on.

And Wander Sil Daypack
Ok, so it’s called a daypack, which implies it only has capacity for stuff you’d need in one day, but really, we both know you can be economical and pack only the essentials. And if you forget that extra pair of socks, it’s a small price to pay for having this smart satchel on your back.
