The Hunt Is On.

I have been traveling a lot this summer, not the glamorous flying all over the world kind, but one that is actually much more enjoyable for my heart. I have been driving back and forth to the Okanagan a couple times a month. You see My Man got a great job in Kelowna so I am spending as much time there as possible. After the last trip up I realized my weekend bag needs to be replaced. The one I currently have I got for $20 in a street market in Hong Kong about 6 years ago. Its a faux Prada duffel bag. Being that it is a cheap knock off the faux leather has not turned all nice and buttery over the years of use, instead it is cracking and starting to fall to pieces. Now the problem is I do not just want to run out and buy any random replacement. It has to be stylish, not overly expensive, and fit all I might need for a long weekend. I want it to go with everything, not be black, no pattern or such, have some inside pockets, and maybe an outside pocket (cellphone, passport, etc). I want it to get better with age. I don't want it to be "precious", I need to be able to put it on the ground, or toss it in the trunk, or on a plane without worrying that it will get dirty or wrecked.  I have start the search in magazine and online. I have even put together an inspiration board to keep me on track. Does anyone have a great weekend bag that they love? How big do you think it should be? A place I should look for one? Any suggests or helpful hints would be great!

This one that I saw in Lucky Magazine is the best one I have seen yet, but not being able to see it in person makes it hard for me to buy. I like to touch and play with the things I buy before just to make sure they are exactly what I am looking for.

I need your help! Suggestions?
