For most of my adult life I have used an old Nike gym bag for mostly everything. Trips to the gym, overnight stays, and long weekend trips. It was cheap, somewhat durable, and supremely lacking in style. About a year ago, my wife encouraged me to level up and get a more grown up looking travel bag. The Herschel Supply Novel Duffle bag pairs simple, sophisticated style with durability. The 42.5L bag has plenty of space to pack for an overnight stay or extended weekend. I can comfortably fit several pairs of pants, shirts, socks, boxers, and a shower kit. A great feature is the separate shoe compartment that zips from the side. You can keep your stinky shoes separate from your clean clothes. You can also use the separate compartment for dirty clothes storage on multi night trips.
