Best Weekend Plus Bag: Baggallini Rolling Tote Review

I’m an avid traveler (one might say it’s an addiction) and like to fly somewhere about once a month. These are usually shorter trips, so it’s ideal to have carry on luggage that can accommodate a 2-night OR a 4-night trip. That’s why I’m calling it a “weekend plus” bag.

I’m on my second Baggallini Rolling Tote and will forever have one at all times. The first one I had was put through a lot and survived most of it, which was impressive. I could actually have kept it longer, but there was the tiniest tear in the side of one of the leather handles and I donated it while it was still usable.

Why I’m obsessed:

  • Not sure how, but I’ve been able to use it for weekend trips, as well as four-night trips! Granted, those four-nighters were not to cold weather places that required bulky sweaters, but I was blown away for a carry-on. This would be no big deal for most, but I’m not one of those crazed light packers who take pride in having only exactly what they need for a trip. I like to have options.
  • Padded laptop compartment. If you need it, it’s there, but I can safely put multiple pairs of shoes (I have two in this picture but could fit at least 2 more) that won’t get crushed with the weight of clothes. Also perfect for magazines. And a curling iron. Don’t forget that ziplock bag of toiletries, too.Baggalini
  • Pockets! Can’t have too many.
  • Good quality. You can tell because the zippers don’t come off the teeth, the handles are sturdy and comfortable and the fabric doesn’t rip easily.
  • The manufacturer comes out with bright two-tone color choices every year, making it stand out in a sea of boring black bags. My current one is grey with hot pink trim.

Tips:

  • Some tiny planes have overhead storage bins that are too small for this bag–but I’ve gotten around that by putting the bag under the seat in front of me. Yes, I have short legs, so it’s easier for me. One of the few advantages of being short.
