The best overnight bags for your next staycation

Practical and sophisticated, take your next quick trip in supreme style

The outlook doesn’t look great gents. While a few weeks ago we were planning some winter sun at a far-flung escape, the list of pandemic-safe destinations is growing ever shorter and we can all tell that, at least for now, it’s probably safer to stay at home. Which isn’t to say you can’t enjoy some time away from your flat. The UK is full of excellent five-star hotels just waiting to welcome you with luxuriously cosy spaces in which to hole up for a weekend – so you’re going to need some chic luggage to match. Perfectly sized for a quick jaunt and hardy enough to last for many trips to come, here’s our edit of the best overnight bags for your next staycation.
