As a mom of 3 whose kids are on select sports teams I often find myself traveling on weekends. Having a great bag is essential. I need something that fits enough for a weekend, is easy to carry, and is sturdy enough to withstand frequent use. I found the perfect bag at Solo New York. It’s almost as if the Weeekender Backpack Duffel was designed just for me!
First of all the grey and slate blue with black accents are right up my alley. While not team colors, they are my colors. I love the look of the bag. Secondly, I never travel anywhere without my laptop and this bag has a special padded pocket for this exact use! I can just slip it in and zip it up and not have to worry about carrying a second bag. Thirdly, I like having shoe options. I like to bring an extra pair along with me and this bag has a special pocket just for shoes! It keeps the separated so your clothes stay clean and fresh. The main section of this bag is big enough to carry what I need for a weekend. The side pockets hold things like my water bottle, sunglasses and cell phone.
Once I get where I’m going, I can unpack my bag and use it for our games. We are often at the ball field for the entire day so having a jacket or sweatshirt, a blanket, some snacks etc. is always a good idea and the way this duffle bag can be worn as a backpack with comfortable padded and adjustable straps makes it a great choice! I love how versatile this bag is!
It’s the off season for travel sports which means we have the rare weekend here and there that we can get away. We went to my in-laws home on Guemes Island over Labor Day weekend and I had the opportunity to use my bag for the first time! I packed everything I needed for the weekend into the bag and when I decided to take the kids hiking, I unloaded my bag then loaded it back up with water and snacks for our adventure!
It was really comfortable to carry, in fact, my 10 year old son took a turn with it and did great! Solo New York has a wide variety of backpacks great for people of all ages.
