Summertime is full of opportunities for fun weekend getaways. Do you have a fun bag that's up to the task?

Summertime is full of opportunities for fun weekend getaways. Do you have a fun bag that's up to the task?

A weekend bag bridges the gap between all-out luggage and the everyday tote. (If you're a big-bag fan, though, some of these definitely qualify.)

A roomy interior and plenty of pocket space are a must - an eye-catching print or sharp shape is a plus. And for those features and more, local retailers have you covered.

From preppy to slouchy, here's what we found for sale across the city.


Heritage leather-bottom bag, $102

Tigertree, Short North

Those in need of one big, open compartment will appreciate these bags, which have an internal frame. Plus, the bags were designed to hold construction tools, so they have a clean, structured look and are incredibly durable.


Street Level canvas bag, $128

Substance for Fashion Conscious People, Short North

This bag is easily slung over a shoulder, and it's good for those gadget geeks who need ready access to their toys during a trip. Plus, it's one of those bags that will just look better and better with age.


Tano cross - body bag, $285

Tailfeathers Boutique, Dublin

This leather stunner's main features are zippers, zippers and more zippers. In fact, short zippers across the bottom corners pull back to reveal a slice of dark, metallic leather; keep them closed for a simpler look.


Jane Marvel rolling duff e l , $165

Leal, Upper Arlington

A hidden handle gives the bag a sturdy bottom - and the extremely lightweight duffel smoothly rolls on wheels. This is a perfect option for those who tend to lug a lot around but don't want to seem like they are, because the striped patterns are distractingly cute.
