The best Both Barrels luggage and accessories for your next break

Both Barrels executive luggage gets its names from the length of trip it allows you to pack for – the Twelve backpack for day trips and travelling light, the Thirty Six holdall for overnight and weekends, and so on.
Designer HoldallBut with a growing range of designer luggage and accessories to choose from, what combinations are best suited for different types of break?

Here we’ve picked out some of the most popular types of trip, and made our own suggestions as to the luxury luggage and travel accessories that will help you pack in plenty of style.

Weekends away

Our Weekend Pack is your starting place for a weekend away, combining a Thirty Six holdall and a One washbag to keep all your toiletries safe and separate from your clothes – and at a discount of around 10% when you buy both together.

You could even pack a Twelve backpack if you’re not likely to need too many changes of clothing, with a generous main compartment and enough pockets to keep everything organised inside.

A week or two

Longer trips don’t have to mean lugging a bulky suitcase around with you – our Sybarite Collection gives you a Thirty Six holdall, Twelve backpack and One washbag, a choice of laptop sleeve in the appropriate size, a Travel Wallet and a Credit Card Slip.Sybarite Collection SHOP-01Together it gives you the luggage space you need for a longer journey, or for extended breaks, take your Twelve backpack and Travel Wallet – the two components in our Flight Pack – as carry-on luggage while your suitcase is stowed in the hold.

Short haul

Just because you’re not going far, it doesn’t mean your choice of luggage matters any less – in fact choosing the right size of backpack can help make you more mobile, especially on crowded commuter services or busy bank holiday public transport.

Our Commuter Pack, combining a Twelve backpack with your choice of luxury laptop sleeve, is equally well suited for trips to and from work, or for leisure trips that are short in distance or duration, and you can always leave the laptop at home if you want to take a screen break for a day or two.

Long haul

If you’ve got a long way to go, take the stress out of your travels by getting organised from the outset. Our Travel Wallet is the perfect accessory to keep your tickets and identification all together in easy reach, and is just big enough to secure your passport in its zipped main pocket.Pocket packFor overnight flights, consider packing a One washbag in your hand luggage – while your clean clothes and cosmetics are out of reach in checked baggage, keeping a travel-sized cleanser or even just some wet wipes within reach will give you a welcome way to freshen up in a matter of seconds.


The Staycation trend was born during the recession, when limited budgets meant many people opted to take holidays within the UK rather than heading abroad, but it helped a lot of people fall in love with Britain again.

Both Barrels designer luggage is proudly designed and built in Britain from British materials, such as our heroic Yorkshire wool exteriors, and we will always fly the flag for great British design.

If your next vacation is a staycation, Both Barrels luxury luggage is a perfect fit – and as you can see above, there’s a combination of luggage and accessories for any duration or distance of journey within the British Isles or abroad.
