The Beach Bum: Sensi Studio Woven Straw Tote
Sensi Studio has a whole line of colorful straw tote bags, perfect for those idyllic days at the beach. Hand-dyed, hand-woven and hand-painted, these beach-ready bags will fit your towel, sunscreen and favorite beach read for the perfect day on the sand or by the pool.
The Outdoor Adventurer: Osprey Talon 22
Ultra lightweight and breathable, this Osprey day pack is made with outdoor adventure in mind. You'll find bike helmet and trekking pole attachments, as well as external hydration access and even an ice axe loop. Zippered pockets on either side allow for easy access of small essentials, like your phone or wallet, and a mesh pocket on the front is perfect for stuffing an extra layer of clothing.
The Photographer Fashionista: Aide de Camp Valencia Travel Tote
It's a pain having to carry one bag for your camera gear and another purse for your personal items. The Valencia Tote offers a two-in-one solution. It has an insert for a DSLR camera, but it can also be removed and worn as a separate sling bag or used as a handy bag organizer.
A detachable cross-body strap adds further versatility, making this a great personal item for carrying camera gear on a plane or a day bag loaded with space for essentials while exploring a new destination. The tote has a slip pocket for securing it to the handle of a rolling suitcase, and it doesn't look like a typical camera bag, making it less of a target for theft.
The Digital Nomad: Timbuk2 Commute Laptop Messenger Bag
Whether you're passing through airport security or heading to the local cafe to do some work, this messenger bag from Timbuk2 is made for you. Slide your phone into a dedicated front pocket, and organize all your pens, earbuds, chargers and flash drives in the plentiful pockets within.
Since the bag unzips to lie flat, you won't have to remove your laptop when passing through airport security. You can also customize the color and fabric to make it uniquely yours.
The Little Jet-Setter: Trunki Ride-On Suitcase
Kids love pulling these colorful rolling suitcases. When they get tired (or you're in a hurry), they can sit on top and ride while you do the pulling. The Trunki comes in a variety of whimsical designs, or you can customize your own, making it even easier to keep track of in a busy airport.
The Gearhead: Mindshift Gear FirstLight 40L
You've got your camera, but you also have lenses, filters, flash, a tripod and a laptop for post-processing all those travel photos. This backpack by MindShift Gear has you covered with a dedicated laptop pouch (up to 17"), a tripod mount, a rain cover and extra pockets for your travel essentials.
The main compartment will hold two DSLR bodies, six to eight standard zoom lenses and a couple of flash units, so all your gear will be where it should be – with you – during your travels.
