    Since this is a quick weekend trip, there’s no need to bring a suitcase for every category of items that you will bring. Opting out for leather duffel bag is more sensible because it forces you to pack just the essential items because of the limited space. You’ll be glad you brought along your duffel instead of your many suitcases when it’s time to load the items in and out of your selected accommodation.
