The Perfect Getaway: Chatelet Soft Air Collection - The Weekender Duffel by Delsey


The name says it all, this bag is what you need if you’re taking a break from work and going on a weekend adventure. The Weekender Duffel is extremely easy to manage, just toss it over your shoulder and be ready to turn some necks—this bag is stylish.

It’s not easy finding a bag that’s bigger than a tote, but just as fashionable, and smaller than a carry-on spinner, but just as spacious. The Weekender is extremely roomy, and with one main compartment, you can really maximize every corner. It’s worth noting that there are two external side pockets that close with magnetic snaps, and one front pocket that can easily be zipped. This is a great place to keep items that you will need to quickly access. The main compartment is rather large, so you don’t want to find yourself fishing for your passport at the gate.

There is plenty of space inside for pants, sweaters, a pair or two of shoes, and for those smaller items, it comes with a removable pouch, a wet pack that is completely waterproof, and a toiletry bag—these match the interior lining and the signature leather trims. The whole bag and its accessories have Delsey’s luxury look and feel. You can also fit your laptop and all the other electronics you’ll need to survive the weekend.

This is no traditional duffel. Delsey has incorporated everything they are known for and made this a stylish duffel that you are going to be proud to carry around the terminal. And if you’d rather carry it by its leather handles, simply remove the adjustable shoulder strap. From the clean stitching, to the vegan leather trims, it is beautiful.

The Chatelet Soft Air collection is an extension of the popular Chatelet Hardside collection. What makes this collection different is the use of fabric with chevron pattern. This fabric is used instead of the hard shell, but while it’s not hard, it’s still water repellant and it holds its shape, regardless of if being empty or not. You can really tell its high quality from top to bottom. One of my favorite features is that the bottom has a hard surface for easy loading.

On the inside, the Weekender does not feel any less luxurious than the outside, in fact, I would say it has a deluxe interior. Soft to the touch lining, bottom feet for protection against wear and tear, and top of the line construction, this carry-on friendly is just what you need for your holiday travels. Plus, it fits perfectly in the overhead compartment.
