Going away for a weekend is always worth it, but the logistics leading up to the main event can be a challenge: spending a night packing and getting everything ready, leaving work early to catch your plane or train, even missing precious weekend hours to clean your apartment, wash your laundry, or do groceries. Yes, weekend getaways can put a damper on one's schedule, but once you arrive at your destination and stare at the endless ocean views, the wild mountain ranges, or a new city skyline to explore, all the efforts are worth the hours of stress.
If you're the type to plan weekend getaways, one thing can make the whole planning and packing process a whole lot easier: the right overnight bag.
