Leather handles make for a comfortable carry or there is a shoulder strap if you prefer.

This bags sizing certainly makes it eligible for carry on luggage, though don’t over pack it as you may find it having to be checked in.

H&M canvas weekend bag


Most you will be familiar with the H&M brand. While their quality can be a little sideways at times they do have some articles that are worth looking at. The Canvas Weekend Bag being one of them.

PVC Tarpauplin duffle bag


While this is not a canvas duffle it is well worth the mention and the material is just as tough, if not more durable, than most canvases.

Should you require a weekender bag that needs to withstand the elements of the outdoors this bag is probably for you. Available in four colors and three size options. The smallest may pass as carry on but don’t hold your breath if you pack it full.

These bags don’t have internal pockets.

“Maybe I should spend a little more and get FREE shipping”

vintage canvas duffel


Canvas is a tough durable material which makes it great for all manner of things, but despite these good characteristics, softness is often lacking. The Gootium bag has all the good qualities you expect from canvas and it’s soft due to the stone wash process it goes through.

Carry handles and accents are genuine leather. With a little bit of care this bag will last you for years.

As with many duffles this one also has a shoulder strap allowing your hands to be free to do other tasks while on the move.

Interior space is ample for clothing and a few personal items required over an extended weekend. Though there is only one interior pocket it will hold the important items that you need quick access to – passport, mobile phone and travel docs.

It can be used as a carry on but also robust enough to be checked in. Price $52.99

Bespoke weekender canvas duffel


Should you be looking for something a little different with a style that dates back to the days of stone masons who used their bags to carry tools.

Made from heavy canvas and supported by an inner frame this weekender from Bepoke Post is made to last. Genuine leather is used for the carry handles and securing buckles, while the adjustable shoulder strap is cotton webbing.

Olive, Navy, Grey or Natural are the available colors. However no matter which color you choose the distinctive looks of this weekender will set you apart from the crowd.

Made in NYC. Price $55

With these great looks and style you may want to add a matching Dopp case

wonder youth canvas duffle


Having very similar characteristics as the S Zone above this weekend bag has the additional features of waterproof canvas and multiple zippered interior pockets for securing the things you need to get to easily.

While the material this bag is made of is waterproof, the bag itself would only be light shower proof because of the exposed metal zipper.

The handles and base are made from leather and there is three color options – green, grey and khaki.

Currently there is a 50% discount on this bag though it is still nine dollars more than the canvas duffle above. You would have to decide if the added feature of waterproof canvas is worth it. If you do like to carry a lot of accessories like chargers, usb cables, notebooks, flashlight and a couple of phones the extra interior pockets could prove valuable. Price $64.99

khaki canvas duffel


Seen here is the third canvas bag in this style and while it does not offer any more features or benefits, as such, over the other two. The mixing of the leather and wax canvas colors is less contrasting giving the bag a more subtle look.

In the end it’s all about your taste, and style and having a couple of slightly varying options is often better than options that sit at opposite ends to each other. Price $72.99
