Esquire Rule No. 212: Choose your poison. Or the right poison. This can apply to many things other than spirits like, say, bags, which can come in a multitude of styles and sizes. So if you're heading to your 9-to-5, then a slim portfolio is the most logical thing to bring. If you're on your way to the gym, then a rough-and-tumble duffel is the right move. And if you're hieing off to a sun-and-sand adventure, transporting the paraphernalia of your complex life, including the baby nappies, the portable speaker, the beach towel, the clothes (for you and her), and more, then something unapologetically large is required. For the weekend's never-ending thrills, here are the biggest and baddest bags that will help you carry the load.

A super-sized bag that can accommodate a week’s worth of stuff, clothing, shoes, toys, and maybe an imaginary travel buddy is never a crazy idea when it is made of a material that is light, strong, and stylish. Tumi 19 Degree aluminum luggage (P94,900) by Tumi, Greenbelt 5

2| Burden of the Beasts


Never mind that it is larger, taller, and, when full, heavier than a troublesome toddler. For the rocky ascent to the summit, nothing beats a jumbo backpack that carries the load. Backpack (P14,990) by Columbia, Greenbelt 5

A collapsible tote that puffs up into a jumbo bucket becomes home to the many things you need for a perfect day at the beach. Tote, towel, and swim shorts by Hermès, Greenbelt 3

4| Get Your Paws on This


Your very cosmopolitan adventure requires beautiful things that work. This roomy duffel, adorned by panels of intrecciato weaving, transforms into a go-anywhere wheelie with a pull of a handle. Bag (P142,500) by Bottega Veneta, Greenbelt 4
