Found: 16 of the Best Overnight Bags for Your Jam-Packed Summer Schedule

We’re big advocates of hard-shell luggage, but there are certain situations when a cumbersome suitcase is just too much. That’s why overnight bags are the fuss-free travel essential to buy ahead of summer: They compress to fit in the trunk on road trips, rarely get checked-in when a plane’s overhead bin is full, and aren’t a pain to bring to work or on public transport ahead of a weekend away.

If your travel bag options are limited to a suitcase and crossbody bag, we’ve found the perfect in-between purchase. These 16 overnight bags for women (or anyone, really) tick every box: They’re made from durable fabric, are lightweight, have ample pockets and compartments, and make packing a breeze. Meet your new favorite travel companion.
