Considering international travel seems to be off the cards for the majority of the world, we are all turning to domestic travel in order to escape the boredom of our immediate environments. That is of course, if you’re not in lock down.
So it’s out with the suitcases and in with the weekenders, and if you want to invest in a weekender, Bennett Winch’s 42L leather weekender is a great place to start (and end).
The full grain leathers are carefully selected and vegetable tanned and features solid brass hardware welded in London, 100% British cotton lining, YKK zips, and solid brass protector studs on the bottom for protection.
I’m a sucker for well organised compartments and Bennett Winch’s weekender has quite a few figured out. The most obvious is the separate waterproof shoe compartment which does away with the need for shoe bags and can fit up to size UK 13 shoes, while the side pocket is also waterproof.
If you need to carry your laptop with you, there’s a well protected sleeve (up to 16”) for that with a separate iPad/tech pocket. If you’re on one of those northern hemisphere continents where you might cross borders, there’s a handy concealed external passport pocket which can also fit your phone if needed. Or empty chip packets. A removable shoulder strap is also provided.
And when things do return to the (proper) normal, and we all start flying again the bag meets IATA carry-on baggage requirements. Bear in mind, this being full grain leather is does weigh 2.1kg as expected but if you want to save grams go for their waterproof cotton canvas weekender which weighs 1.9kg.
