As I write this from a lovely pleather chair in the airport, laptop firmly secured in my lap, travel bags become oh-so-noticeable to me as they always do when I travel. But the difference now is that we’re currently in a state of complete chilliness and massive mounds of snow coat all available outdoor surfaces. Considering this, this LeSportsac Black Patent Small Weekender fits the bill for a snow day travel bag.

I differ from many bag-lovers in my color preferences; I rarely choose black bags. In fact, I’m not sure I own a black bag. But this small weekender is particularly mesmerizing to me, especially if I imagine it against a background of pure, white, beautiful snow. Actually, the majority of the snow in the city has now been transformed into a squishy brown slush that sticks to the bottom of your shoes and makes you fall up a massive outdoor staircase as a massive amount of tourist watches. True story, but it only increases my case for this shiny weekender.

LeSportsac Black Patent Small Weekender
The patent gives the impression of waterproofing, which is quite preferable when in the snow or rain. Of course, I’d be remiss if I didn’t mention the ubiquitous LeSportsac matching pouch, which is essential to an organized air travel experience. Buy through Shopbop for $98.

    I have a laptop case, sleeve, and a small crossbody in this fabric and love it!! It is indestructible, and looks pretty chic…no complaints here. Thanks for the review, Anna!

    I have a few Lesportsac bags and I just want to know if they will be worth more now that Lesportsac has been sold and is going to be hard to find in the USA?
