We all like to escape for a few days to get some R&R, and the essential travel piece for a quick trip is a versatile weekender bag. As I was gearing up for sporadic trips to Colorado, New Mexico and Arizona, I came across the quintessential weekender bag from Malcolm Fontier called The Getaway. And, boy did it exceed my expectations!
First, to give you some background on Malcolm Fontier, the company is based in Atlanta and designs "modern carryalls for a world on the go". Their products range from wallets to weekenders, utilize high-quality Italian fabrics, and have been engineered down to every last dirty detail. Believe me - they thought of everything!
The main thing that stood out for me with The Getaway is the use of pockets, space and closures. Everything I packed for my trips had an 'assigned spot' that allowed for easy storage and access. Then, the materials used were perfect for travel. The light grey colored canvas material travels very well while looking stylish. As you know, the overhead bins and airplane seat storage can get nasty! The straps on the bag have a padded suede material that sits comfortably on your shoulder - or snugs right into your hands. Also included are a sturdy, padded section for your laptop and a matching bag that can be used for laundry or trinkets you find on your trip. There are some hidden interior pockets too, but those are top secret.
The Getaway bag is the highest priced in their collection at $285, but it is the type of luggage you will carry and cherish for years. Worth it for those on the go. View the modern weekender bag and the entire Malcolm Fontier collection at their website. Then plan a trip somewhere...
