We live in an age of double-booked calendars, and it isn’t even just with work. Managing off-duty activities can be just as hectic. Why do you think there’s so many personal assistant startups that promise to make our lives easier? With all of that swirling around, sometimes you just gotta get out of dodge. Few things can recharge your batteries like a weekend away…

To help encourage you to GTFO, we found seven terrific weekend bags that will help you travel in style.

OSPREY TRANSPORTER
You’ll be amazed at how much you can cram into Osprey’s Transporter packs, which are available in sizes ranging from 40 cubic liters up to 130. (The 65L or 90L should be more than enough for your weekend getaway needs.) It has zippered pockets and handles everywhere you’d want them, and the main strap handles double as backpack straps so you can carry the bag hands-free.

BikeMag.com – Featuring Syncro 15 – March 22, 2016

The recent trend of riding without a backpack is understandable given that many packs are uncomfortable, heavy and unstable. In response, some brands have introduced clothing and systems allowing tools and riding necessities to be carried without a pack. But there’s still a lot to be said for riding packs, and they remain the only option when it comes to being prepared on long rides.

When I first saw Osprey’s Syncro 15, I thought it looked like a child’s backpack. You know–those tiny little things that only fit a coloring book, one sock and maybe a stuffed animal or two. Despite my hesitations, I gutted my current pack and swapped everything over to the Syncro 15. It was like one of those magical bags from “Harry Potter” that’s bigger on the inside: I fit everything in it that I usually carry and still had room for three extra tubes, an extra jacket, food, my DSLR and lens, plus the full 2.5-liter reservoir that’s included with the Syncro 15.
