Whether you’re getting ready for your big annual holiday away, or planning a number of exciting weekend breaks over the summer, you’ll already be thinking about storage and having enough room to pack everything you need.

As always, we’ve got you covered at Prime Hide, thanks to our stunning selection of men’s and women’s travel bags and accessories. We’ve put together a small selection of what you can pick up for your break, including everything from travel bags to cosmetic bags for all your essentials.

Making space

Sometimes it’s hard to figure out what takes longer when preparing for a holiday – whether it’s thinking about the clothes you want to wear and accessories, or the actual packing itself. It always makes sense to start with the absolute essentials and make sure you have all the basics covered.

Depending on the climate, you’ll want clothes with versatility so you aren’t caught short. If you have enough room then you can start to throw in optional extras that give you more choice of clothes while you are away. Don’t forget the evening either, as you’ll want a change of clothes especially after a long, sticking hot day out in the sun.

The Elpaso Duffle Holdall is perfect for long, summer weekend breaks away to the coast, countryside or abroad. Hardwearing, durable leather ensures this can stand up to long journeys while keeping all the contents safe and dry inside.

You can fold away everything you need inside while still leaving plenty of space for any extras. The embossed logo motif adds a stylish finish touch, complemented by the gold fixtures that blend in perfectly with the deep brown leather hues. Two strong leather handles also make this easy to pick up and carry whenever you need.

Keeping up appearances

Just because you are going away it doesn’t mean your standards have to drop. It’s a chance to let down your hair and get away from some of the normal routines, of course, but you still want to look and feel good when stepping out in a new city, region or country.

There are certain things you can’t live without no matter where you are in the world and a cosmetics bag is definitely one of those. When it comes to packing the essentials for the trip, this is one of the first things to go into any travel bag.

When you look at Prime Hide’s Luxury Cosmetic Travel Pouch you’ll see an accessory that ticks all the right boxes in terms of space, style and price. Once the top zip opening is pulled back you’ll also find 3 small internal pouch pockets to keep cosmetics organised and easy to find.

It also comes in ten different colours, each with matching lined cotton, so there is a shade available to suit everyone’s taste. This cosmetic bag comes at a price that you’ll find hard to beat anywhere else, especially one made from such fine leather.

Travel bags you can depend on

The important thing to remember with travel bags is they need to be easy to use and carry while providing enough room for everything you need on your break. If you are regularly going away on weekend trips, whether in your personal or professional life, you need to be able to depend on it no matter what.

Plans are rarely set in stone when you head away on holiday, so a travel bag also needs to be adaptable enough so it doesn’t bog you down. From one night breaks to 4-5 days away, the right leather travel bag will end up being your best friend from start to finish.

Take a look at the Cruz Gladstone Travel Bag if you want a classy leather travel bag will lots of space. It’s an essential for anyone who wants to make an impression due to its timeless aesthetic appeal. Sling it over your shoulder with the adjustable strap, or use the thick carry handles to keep a firm grip.

The beautiful interior lining keeps all the contents cushioned and fully protected inside and luxury vegetable tanned leather makes it look and feel like a complete one-off. You’ll also find metal feet at the bottom to stop the smooth leather from being easily scratched and damaged.

Accessories for day trips

Once you have arrived at your destination and are ready to go out and start discovering new places, you’ll need to figure out what items you are going to take along with you. Hotel keys, phone, wallet and one or two others items are probably all you need but you won’t want to be bogged down while moving around.

A good option here is to bring along a compact flight bag that is light to carry and ensures your personal belongings aren’t all stuffed inside trouser or short pockets. It’s a useful investment that can also be used for range of different activities during and after the holiday has been finished.

Try the Milano Small Flight Bag out for the size if you are looking for a compact bag that will work with you throughout the holiday. This stylish men’s leather flight bag also features front and rear zipped pockets for extra storage should it be needed.

It’s also as durable as you need a flight bag to be, made from soft leather that provides both style and longevity. Simply pop it over your shoulder, place your belongings inside and you’re good to go for the day.

Finding a bag that suits you

Price always plays a big role when it comes to picking out the right travel bag to suit your needs. Price versus value is something to be considered, especially if you are using the bag a lot to travel away. Going cheap may save money initially, but you are far more likely to be back searching again sooner, rather than later.

If you do plan on getting a lot of use from the bag, investing in one made from the highest quality leather makes sense. This is also true for those who do not travel much. Although the cost is more initially, you’ll always find a use for a travel bag over time and it will last as long as you need it to.

A good example is the Trent Gladstone Holdall. Made from Roughewn leather it can stand up to the rigours of regular travel while still maintaining its stylish appearance. The lightly grained surface feels wonderful to touch and blends in with all of your other travel accessories.
