There is one lightweight travel bag that goes with me everywhere, whether it’s long haul, short haul, by train or by car.
It slips over the handles on my wheelie cabin bag which makes life so much easier wherever you’re going, goes over my shoulder or cross body and if necessary will make short work of any extra shopping.
Made of sturdy nylon and with lots of compartments the three best attributes of any travel bag are that it weighs practically nothing when empty – holds all your essentials where they’re easy to get to (passport, tickets etc) and in this age of paid for shopping bags will easily fit your shopping in too. And, finally, it looks good. It’ll also work for a weekend stayover provided you aren’t like me and always take too much.
My two favourite brands for this type of bag are Liphault and Jump, the former being easier to get hold of in the UK than the latter although if you happen to be paying a visit to Paris you’ll find the best range of both at Galleries Lafayette.
Jump in France will ship to you in the UK in four or five days. A small wait for what may become your perfect travel companion.
