Take Your Travels to the Next Level with an Overnight Carry On Bag

​Overnight bags are used for carrying a limited number of items. Basically, you can choose anything small enough for a one-night travel. The main criteria are size and style, along with portability and durability - the value for money matters and you wouldn’t like to buy a new one a month from now. So, it can be one of those catchy pageant bags, a fancy leather bag, or even a duffle bag. The more options you have, the harder it gets…

Let us help you narrow it down - check our best-rated 5 picks in different styles!

Here’s our TOP 5 Overnight Bags Selection for Super-Short Trips!

When I was going on just a short weekend trip, I would try to shove everything I needed into a tote or my oversized purse. I always ended up with the same problem, my bag was so full I couldn't get to the things that I really needed. For example, my id when I'm going through security. Or, my bag would tip over on the plane and all the loose odds and ends would be scattered across the plane. Finally, I decided it was time to take my travel luggage to the next level and get a carry on bag for my overnight trips.

Here’s Why an Overnight Luggage Is a Must-Have:

​Choosing stylish overnight bags to carry a limited number of items for a one/two-night stay will get you tremendous benefits. You can keep the essentials in your (man)purse and the things needed at the destination in another place. You’ll better organize yourself, taking the minimum required. And if you end up hopping into a bus or even a plane, you can be sure that there will always be some room for your luggage, even under the seat or in an overhead bin.

How Can I Carry Around a Stylish Overnight Bag?

We haven’t mentioned any backpack so far because overnight bags are not meant to be carried on your back, but rather on your shoulder. And whether they come in a sport or elegant design, the best models will give you flexible transportation options. Their handles and shoulder straps are usually adjustable and reinforced, to make it easier for your shoulder. Some of them even have additional mounting straps or mechanisms, so you can attach them to other bags. Do not worry too much about how you are going to carry it.

Focus on your best options: what style would you prefer? And which one from our top-rated bags would you choose?

​This bag from Kushies is very similar in dimensions with the floto Venezia duffle bag. It weighs 3.2 pounds and measures 9 x 20 x 10 inches. But it only comes in two different models, for girls and boys. Most would see it fit for parents with small kids who need to pack light for sleep-overs or daycare. Nevertheless, aside from the childish design, it comes with some pretty cool features: 2 insulated boxes, for snack and medicine, separate cloth bags for clean, dirty, soiled clothes, and even a pillow and a blanket. Long story short, these overnight bags from Kushies should definitely be on your short list!
