I have a confession to make – for so long I used to travel with my pink sports backpack I’d had since my junior high. To be honest, I had absolutely no intention of spending 100-plus dollars on an overnight bag, until a month ago. An elderly woman at the airport gave me a life lesson and advised me that if I study hard I’ll succeed in life. I am 26.
Obviously I decided to change my ways or should I say my traveling style. I researched and browsed overnight bags Australia shops offer, and finally found a few that I absolutely love. So, I’m more than happy to share my knowledge and recommend you few great types of carry-on or overnight bags.
Duffle overnight bags
Come on, admit it, these are super cool. Plus, they are sturdy enough to hold up to the rigors of traveling. Although they are on the soft side, the cotton canvas material is durable enough to ensure your content stays protected. And they feature plenty of pockets. No wonder they are one of top selling overnight bags Australia wide. Pack it and get going!
What is the first thing that comes to your mind when you think of an overnight bag? A small suitcase on two or maybe four wheels with a telescoping handle? If so, you need to reevaluate your perspective and above all, go shopping more often. The variety of overnight bags Australia wide is huge, from hard-sided or soft-sided exteriors, four whirligig wheels or two inline wheels to any number of storage configuration and almost any style you can think of. However, not every flavour may suit your traveling and packing style. Know which features you need and which ones you do not.
For example, aim for durability (so the bag can withstand all the tossing it will be exposed to), high-quality wheels and handles (the ones that don’t lock, wobble, or bend easily) and interior and exterior organization pockets (for toiletries, dirty laundry, laptop, etc.).
If you are packing light for a weekend gateway or a short trip, an under-seat bag is a great option. You can pack toiletries and few outfits in the biggest compartment and use the exterior part for gadgets. And you do not have to spend much on these bags; there are plenty of models available at pretty affordable prices.
Even if you don’t have kids you can still use a diaper bag as your overnight bag. No, I’m not talking about a diaper bag with cute bears or Disney characters print. I’m talking about a stylish diaper bag that looks more like a sleek tote on the outside but has tons of compartments and zipper pouches inside. Say what you want, but a diaper bag is roomy enough to fit a change of clothes, making it the perfect weekend getaway overnight bag.
