When you’re looking for one bag that can do it all, you usually end up making some sacrifices.

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. And the best part: these made-to-order, USA-made bags are 10% off for the next few days, so if you’re looking to upgrade your current bag system, now’s a great time to check them out.

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 quick trips. 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. It’s 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, now available in an improved version 2.0 and an exclusive X10 olive green colorway, taking on a more classic design with a 28L capacity. 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. This newer version comes with matte zippers with garages, more attachment points, and usability upgrades like an adjustable waist belt, side carry handle, and luggage strap.

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. And for even more options, be sure to check out the Hip Pack and Dopp Kit for even more packing and carry options to suit your needs.
