16 Bags That Want To Leave Town Just as Much as You Do

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

Just a short week from today, summer officially kicks off. Which means Summer Fridays and long holiday weekends will be here, and if you’re getting out of town, that cute summer wardrobe of yours will need a mode of transportation. When a suitcase is just too cumbersome for a short escape, the trusty weekend bag has you covered. Just the right size for a couple of dresses, a swimsuit, and your e-reader, there's a bag for every style and destination. Bright, light fabric bags can be found everywhere from Forever 21 to Mulberry. For those who need their luggage to take a beating, the classic, indistructable Filson shoulder bag does the job. And if you have cash to burn or just want to be fancy-schmancy, WGACA’s vintage denim Chanel tote should fit right into any equally fancy-schmancy seaside resort town. Check out 16 of our favorites in the gallery above, and happy packing to you.—Julie Chen
