The Transport Weekender

The Transport Weekender is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 67.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Adorbs weekender Literally just got it in the mail! It’s perfect! I’ve already pseudo packed it and it will fit everything for my travels across the USA! (3 jeans, 7 tops, sneakers, toiletry bag, undergarments, and room for more) it’s within TSA guidelines so that’s good! Also, many have mentioned the “feet” needing to be on the bottom, mine totally comes with them! Yay! I still think the shoulder strap could be thicker. Overall it’s a must have!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from perfect, stylish carry-on/weekender! I purchased this last month in true black for a 4 day trip & have used it twice more since the trip. It's the perfect carry on size! The bag is as gorgeous in person as it is shown in the photo. The shoulder strap does get a little tough on the shoulders when the bag is fully packed though - but otherwise it's just what I hoped for. The zippered pocket is large & roomy - perfect for throwing a book in there to read later during your travels. It's just large enough to fit a ton of stuff, but no so large that it overwhelms my small [petite & 5'] frame. I can carry it by the handles without worrying about the bag dragging on the floor. Definitely will be my new overnight/weekender/carry-on bag!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Recommended with Caveats... Quality is excellent; however, extra cost for monogram is not worth it. Monograms are small & inconspicuous - xame color as leeather. If you monogram, you want it to be noticed. Needs embossing, larger size, and color enhancement, such as gold highlighting... Bag itself is great - roomy and well constructed. Hopefully, it will last forever with the proper care. Recommended but without current monogram add-on.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly what I wanted! LOVE this bag! It is (almost) exactly what I wanted! Simple beautiful bag. Leather is gorgeous, length of carry handles is perfect. The hardware is quality. I love that there is the double zipper and three pockets inside (just enough, not too many). That said, I would change 3 things: (1) for the expense of the bag, it should come with a dust cover (2) The shoulder strap is a little narrow; another 1/4" would be perfect (3) I would like feet on the bottom.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Perfect Excuse for a Weekend Getaway I'd been eyeing this bag for weeks. I wasn't sure I wanted to bite the bullet and purchase it. However, I am so glad I did! I truly love this back and I am sure I will get great use out of it. I am a light packer and I know that I will use this bag for trips longer than just a weekend. This bag is large enough to carry about 4-5 summer outfits (think shorts and tees). I love the feel, look and smell of the leather. It looks incredibly stylish and sleek. It's a wonderful addition to all of my transport totes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from perfect size for a long weekend getaway It's a great price and quality for the perfect carry-on size. One zipper closure pocket inside, which is pretty deep, and 2 side pockets that you can slip in your phone and boarding pass or small wallet - the perfect amount of pockets. I like the texture on the leather, not too rough, still soft and smooth, but 100% leather, so the quality is there. I can fit about everything I need for a 2-4 day weekend trip and if I were to fly somewhere and I don't want to bother w check ins, this is perfect for that occasion. A very clean and simple design, yet classy and fashionable. Both English Brown and Black colors are so gorgeous and you can't go wrong with either and it's probably down side to this bag - picking a color!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Bag! This bag is just amazing - love the size, style and feel. It has one large zipper pocket and several open pockets inside for keys, sunglasses, etc. I also love the double zipper closure and sleekness of the straps. My only comment for an improvement would be a little bit of structure for the bottom/sides so it wouldn't fall over when empty. Really love this bag!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I'm very happy with this purchase! I bought this bag as well as a matching knap sack for a recent weekend getaway. This bag is so functional and very chic! Many people were commenting on how nice the bag is and inquiring on where to purchase. The great thing too is that this bag fits as a carry-on bag yet it is till roomy enough for four days' worth of clothes. I love the oxblood colour and the leather itself is soft yet durable. I am so happy I bought this bag. I had been eyeing it for a while. Excellent purchase!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Perfect Purchase I purchased two of these bags, one for myself and one for my husband, and had them monogrammed with our initials. We had been looking for a leather travel bag for some time; The Transport Weekender is the perfect unisex fit! The size is great, big enough for everything you could need on a trip, but small enough that you don't feel swamped when carrying it. The other thing we like about them, is that there is no logos or branding on the outside of the bag. They look classic and timeless, and we'll have them for many years to come. The leather quality is amazing, and inner pockets and lining are top-notch. We had to pay for a third-party shipping option to forward to Australia, so this was an added expense for us, but it still came out as being the worthwhile option.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Completely new bag! Hey Madewell! Get rid of the old reviews from last year because since you fixed the strap issues this bag is a completely new bag and those customers would like to know. Still could use some help in the short strap array but the shoulder strap is great now. Thank You.
