 travel essentials Maxwell Scott Flero S bag
Weekender. How long have I been looking for a nice travel bag? Ever! My boyfriend has seized my trolley and I temporarily switched to his weekender. On shorter travels and weekend trips I don’t need a bigger bag. Thus a large weekender is handy enough and looks stylish too. I’ve been dallying over the pretty Maxwell Scott Bags for a while now! Let’s go the whole hog.

Maxwell Scott Bags FleroS What makes a good travel bag?

Clearly, the quality, the shape and the comfort! My Maxwell Scott Bags Flero S has been travelling a lot with me lately – on a weekend trip to Hamburg, as hand luggage to Croatia and Mallorca. I’m super satisfied with its quality as it is sturdy and keeps the interior intact.

A few facts about the travel bag:

The Maxwell Scott Bags products are manufactured in the heart of Tuscany

Maxwell Scott Bags offers a 25 year warranty on its products

The FleroS consists of full leather (thickest and the uppermost layer of cow skin)

The brand attaches great importance to vegetable tanned leather, which is a complicated method with a 200-year tradition

It holds 17 liters, weighs 2.1 kg, having a practical interior and exterior pocket

costs € 461

Always with me

The bag holds up plenty of space but not too much. That’s good indeed good because I always tend to pack way too much. The frequent packing and unpacking of the last trips was a little training and I improved myself. No matter where or how short I travel, I always carry these things with me:

  • My Macbook (I love to type my texts and work while I’m on the road)
  • My Canon 6d with 1-2 lenses (I’m always angry when I leave the good camera at home)
  • My Olympus Pen E-PL7 (for quick snapshots and Instagram photos)
  • A mobile battery for multiple charges (I no longer leave the house without my charger because my phone discharges way too quickly)
  • Charging cable for Macbook and iPhone
  • toiletry bag and a beauty case in travel format (the bag is always in reach in my bathroom)

My favorite Travel look

I love it cozy when I’m traveling. My mom has always pointed out that we always should wear long pants for any trips. I still follow that advice. Paired with cozy sneakers, like this lace model from Superga and a cozy cardigan. I rarely wear scarves and always need to remind myself of bringing one. The aircon in airplanes is way too strong most of the times.

What do you prefer? A weekender or a trolley?

    Hi Vicky, I really do love your bag and definitely need one like that too. For some occasions my trolley is just too big and not that handy. And it is also just a great looking and stylish accessory!

    Best, Sonja
