It’s holiday season, and travelling is definitely on our lists this coming month. It’s exciting indeed – you’ve got your whole itinerary planned out, but one little detail that you might miss out is your day-to-day travel bag. We often plan for the bigger aspects of our trip, and by the time we realise that the shoulder bag we brought along isn’t suitable for the trip, it’s too late.
You don’t have to be an experienced international jet setter to be a pro at picking your travel bag. We’ve identified a few important features that the perfect travel bag should have:
We love the Balenciaga Motocross as an ideal travel bag for its versatility and comfort. And of course, we love its edgy look, which lets you travel in effortless style.
Jump to our recommendations on the bag or read our review on why the Balenciaga Motocross Classic City S the perfect travel bag.
Look out for these features and you’re good to take flight:
What Matters #1: Material
This Balenciaga Motocross Classic City S comes in lambskin — one of the softer leather types. It is comfortable to carry due to its shape. We also recommend going for the Motocross in goatskin leather, which is sturdier and tougher than lambskin, yet supple.
Both materials are not too heavy and easy to move around with, making this bag ideal for your monthly adventures!
What Matters #2: Hardware
Apart from functionality, the bag has to keep its style at the same time. A Balenciaga Motocross is chic and gives an edge to your travel looks with its silver studs and clean zip hardwares.
The Motocross comes with two zips, one on the exterior pocket, and another on the opening of the bag, providing secured compartments.
What Matters #3: Strap and Handles
We love that the Motocross comes with a detachable strap, giving you the option to carry it on your shoulder or across your body. The crossbody option is perfect when you have to walk through crowds and need to keep your bag close to you. The thickness of the strap adds on to the sturdiness and comfort while carrying the bag.
Besides the detachable strap, the Motocross has a top handle attached, making it easy to carry with one hand – and at the same time, perfect for your travel #OOTDs!
What Matters #4: Opening
We know how important it is to have your passport easily accessible during transit. The Balenciaga Motocross comes with a wide zipped-opening, making it easy for you to reach for any of your items. Afraid of things falling out or sneaky pickpockets? Simple zip it up when you’re travelling in crowded areas.
What Matters #5: Interior
One of the best things about the Balenciaga Motocross is its spaciousness. It may not seem like much on the outside but you’ll be surprised at how much this Motocross, Classic City S can fit — an iPad, passport, make-up pouch and even a water bottle.
You’ll find an additional inner compartment on the interior of the bag — great for smaller items such as a lip balm or a transport card.
Extra feature: All Balenciaga Motocross bags come with a small mirror. Often attached and located at the front exterior compartment. It comes in handy when you need a quick makeup fix while rushing between destinations or during transit.
Be sure to keep these features in mind while in search of your daily travel bag!
