City Duffel, Country Duffel

We’re loving this camouflage duffel bag from Topo Designs because it’s the perfect size and weight for both a weekend road trip to the countryside and a quick flight-and-hotel jaunt to a new metropolis. It’s durable enough to withstand the baggage handlers and carousel, but still malleable for the car-trunk game of Tetris that any automobile journey worth its salt requires. Inspired by Town Mouse and Country Mouse we decided to celebrate our new favorite travel companion with two opposing packing lists—one designed for an urban adventure and one destined for rural repose.

City Duffel

You will need: LUXE City Guide to help you navigate around town, a simple and reliable hair styler with hold that can last all day like Hanz de Fuko’s Scheme Cream, all-purpose Kiehl's Facial Fuel "Heavy Lifting" Anti-Aging Moisturizer for morning and night, C.O. BIGELOW Mentha Lip Balm Stick SPF 15 to protect against the elements, and the lightweight Apolis Washed Linen Scarf.

Country Duffel

You will need: Folding Sunglasses, highly effective but low-bulk Kiehl's Facial Fuel UV Guard SPF 50+, spot sun protection fromRaw Materials Mini Face Stick SPF 30, Herban Essentials Towelettes for a quick clean-up after a hike or the beach, and underarm sweat protection from Jack Black Pit Boss.
