When you’re looking for one bag that can do it all, you usually end up making some sacrifices. Either your bag is a little too big for the office, or it isn’t large enough to make it through your next weekend getaway. For the best of both worlds, something like the Weekender bag collection from North St. might be more up your alley. The Meeting Bag and the Weekender Backpack are both specialized packs that are great at what they do, but combining them together opens up limitless potential for EDC.

For everyday carry when you’re headed to the office or around town for the day, the Meeting Bag is a lightweight, tough beat that will get you through the day. It’s a 9.5L daypack that weighs only around 1.5 pounds, but still manages to easily fit up to a 13-inch laptop or tablet in its padded sleeve. Then there’s the main compartment for your other essentials like notebooks or charging cables. You can also organize your gear with pouches or dividers thanks to soft hook and loop attachment points. Its clamshell design makes customizing your loadout for the day straightforward and simple, and the X-51 fabric construction is the cherry on top. The fabric is a tough 510D-backed Cordura fabric bonded to polyester X-PLY 22 monofilm, a combination both highly tear-resistant and waterproof, so you can be confident your gear will be safe no matter how bad the weather or rough the commute.

That same tough fabric is also found in the larger Weekender backpack, which takes on a more classic design with a 28L capacity. If you tend to have a little more gear in your EDC or you like to travel light when you go out of town, the Weekender makes a strong case for why it’s worth picking up. It has a top-loading padded laptop compartment that keeps your expensive computer suspended off the ground for added protection against drops. It also opens flat for efficient packing, not to mention also providing hook and loop strips for extra customization. On top of that, you get a water bottle sleeve, external pockets, and contoured shoulder straps shaped for optimal comfort. 4-point compression straps and top tote handles customize your carry even further.

When you’re headed on a longer trip and need a little extra room, you can attach the two together for even more carrying capacity. Either bag will get the job done for most people depending on what your daily carry looks like, but attaching them together when you need to is what makes the Weekender Collection such a versatile combination.
