Overnight bags are an essential part of every man’s arsenal of travel gear. Whether you’re rendezvousing with your crew up at the cabin for a day, embarking on a quick excursion, or staying with a “friend” for the evening, your overnight bag is what brings everything together on trips that are too long for a backpack, but too short for a cumbersome suitcase.

Here are 8 of the best overnight bags around:

 

Polare-Genuine-Leather-Canvas-Travel-Bag

Polare Genuine Leather Canvas Travel Bag

We love a solid classic style, and the Polare Genuine Leather Canvas Travel Bag is just gorgeous. Quality high-density canvas and a beautiful crazy horse leather trim come together to give you timeless cool and modern practicality. Large enough to carry a change or two of clothes, accessories, a laptop or tablet, etc.

$59
Poler-High-Dry-Pack

Poler High & Dry Pack

We wanted to keep backpacks off this list, but had to make an exception for the High & Dry Pack from Poler. This 20-liter bag is built to withstand the elements, and features a 300D Campdura outer body, a 190D Campdura lining, and a 600D Campdura bottom. Waterproof zippers and a rolltop design make this bag built for whatever you throw at it, and can carry just enough gear for a day or two out in the elements—including a laptop sleeve and an outer accessory pocket.

$60
Owen-Fred-Work-Hard-Play-Hard-Duffel

Owen & Fred Work Hard, Play Hard Duffel

We love the Work Hard, Play Hard Duffel by Brooklyn-based Owen & Fred because it’s built to last and 100% made in the USA. The duffel is made from 18 oz. duck canvas, has a 1000D nylon exterior, a 420D nylon interior, and looks as good as it performs. It’s not as clunky as a full-sized duffel, and is perfect for a day or two worth of gear.

$115
Herschel-Supply-Co-Novel-Duffle-2

Herschel Supply Co. Novel Duffle

Vancouver-based Herschel Supply Co. releases products with nostalgia and usability in mind, and when it comes to their novel duffels, we definitely think they hit the mark. Though pictured here is the khaki canvas and black leather with beautiful red and white striped interior, there are a ton of different colors and combinations from which to choose. Even though this bag offers things like reinforced carrying handles, pebbled leather detailing, and two-way exposed copper zippers, our favorite thing about the novel duffel is the signature shoe compartment—finally, someone answered the age-old dilemma: “Ugh, I don’t want to put my dirty-ass kicks in the same vicinity as my perfectly clean clothes.” You get us, Herschel. And for that, we thank you.

DSPTCH-Gear-Patrol-Gym-Work-Bag

DSPTCH x Gear Patrol Gym/Work Bag

Our friends over at Gear Patrol teamed up with the style-masters at DSPTCH—whose bags are famously known to stand the tests of time, and are built in the USA with the modern professional and adventurer in mind—to bring us the DSPTCH x Gear Patrol Gym/Work Bag. This sleek and modern bag, at 22” x 10” x 8”, is just big enough to take on a day or two of gear, and resilient enough to last you a lifetime. It also features a wet/dry pouch and a compartment large enough to comfortably fit a 15-inch laptop.

$185
Brooks-Hampstead-Holdall-Bag

Brooks Hampstead Holdall Bag

This masterpiece by Brooks is the goddamn definition of an overnight bag. Too small to be a weekend bag, but too large for standard backpack classification (even though it comes with multi-purpose straps that essentially turn it into one!), this bag has a roomy main compartment and a roll-top design to help pack in more gear, just in case your night out turns into a weekend getaway. The bag is also exceptionally water resistant, with its sleep cotton lining and leather exterior. Around the city or through the mountains, this bag will follow you anywhere.

$360
This-Is-Ground-Voyager-WiFi-Bag

This Is Ground Voyager WiFi Bag

Listen… Don’t get us wrong: we love good tech gear. But we find ourselves hating a lot of what’s out there because it’s usually hideous to look at. But the gents at This Is Ground saw that problem and sought to rectify it with their beautiful Voyager Bag, which comes with a separate outside compartment for all your headphones and chargers and blah blah blah—all without looking like a trash bag wrapped around a cardboard box. Oh, and the best part? Each Voyager WiFi Bag comes with an integrated Karma Go WiFi unit, which means—finally—no more annoyingly wonky airport WiFi. The future is now, people!

$725
Saddle-Henley-Duffle-GiGi-New-York

Saddle Henley Duffle by GiGi New York

Is $750 for an overnight bag a little spendy? Yeah, maybe. But when it comes to style and legitimate craftsmanship, we’ve learned that you get what you pay for. And for the steep price tag of the Henry Duffle, you can expect beautiful pebble grain leather, dual zip top closures, a structured top handle with a detachable cross-body strap, a large interior zip pocket (think: toothbrushes, combs, razors, etc.) and large elastic pockets for your other toiletries. It also offers two quick-grab exterior side slip pockets, and comes in a beautiful light brown, or a classic black.
