We have produced our last batch of Weekenders for 2023. We will make more available in 2024. Exact timeline is TBD.


Meet the challenge with the best modular travel bags from North St. Bags. The Weekenders are durable, smart and (always) adaptable bags, loaded with features and made with US fabrics and hardware. 

Now made with EcoPak - a 100% recycled waterproof sailcloth, faced with recycled EPX600 woven polyester. 

The 28L Weekender Backpack is all that and more, expanding from a slim, modern laptop bag to a full blown suitcase with backpack straps. Pack just what you need where you need it with the dedicated, top loading laptop compartment and hidden water bottle sleeve.
