While underseat storage varies by airline, you should be able fit your bag under the seat as long as its dimensions are close to 9" x 10" x 17" (if there's one specific airline you generally fly, it's a good idea to double check their carry-on guidelines before you choose a bag). You should also take into account how much you typically pack for a weekend away; if you have lots of essentials, for example, then you'll want a bag with a compression option. To help you find the perfect weekender bag, we've rounded up six amazing finds.

Bonus: Bargain Designer Find

The Dagne Dover Landon Carryall may not be under $60, but considering designer weekenders can run upwards of $1,000 (looking at you, Louis Vuitton), this sub-$160 find is definitely worth the splurge.

The removable laundry bag is great for storing running shoes, too, just in case you want to show off this stunner at the gym after you return from vacation. Available in eight colors, but we're currently crushing on the heather gray option. Dimensions: 7.5" x 9" x 14.5"
