June 03, 2015 3 min read

It’s finally vacation season and most of us are looking forward to enjoying some time away for a while.  Whether you are planning a trip to the Keys, a summer trip to Europe or somewhere exotic, you will need good, high quality bags that will protect your valuables no matter your destination or your mode of travel.  Jack Georges designs carry-on bags and wheelers that meet a wide range of travel needs.  And when you get there, a smart cross body bag to carry the little things that you need with you at all times is absolutely critical.  You will find the right bag for each job in our popular Voyager Collection.

As its name implies, the Voyager collection, with its vintage styling, was designed for adventure.  Each item is made of hand-stained, vegetable re-tanned buffalo leather that makes every piece unique in color and texture.  Since the leather is uncorrected, it is able to retain its strength as it softens for a warm, silky feeling against your fingertips.  Whether you prefer natural, earthy brown or classic black, youll love the fact that scratches in this full-grain leather will heal themselves while building a rich patina with every journey.

The leader of the pack is the Voyager 7522 Wheeler. At 22”x 14”x 9”, it meets of most national carry-on size requirements.  The bags telescoping handle and wheels make it easy to transport through the airport and on to your flight.  At 14 wide, it glides through the aisle of an airplane.  With shoe compartments, several pockets, and belts inside the main compartment to keep your items in place, this wheeler will help you stay organized.  And when youre taking a car, a bus, or a train, its great for a weekend trip as well.

For special occasions that require dressy clothing, consider the Voyager 7549 Garment Cover.  Made from the same beautiful leather, this slim garment cover hangs 49”, and has three hanger loops, and a full length zipper.  When you need to carry it, the bag will fold in the middle with one handle holding it together at the top for easy transport very convenient!

If a duffle or cabin bag is in line with your plans, the Voyager 7720 19”Duffel/Cabin Bag and the 7318 Cabin Bag look great as part of a sophisticated set but also work well on their own.  Both are the right size to slide in the overhead compartment or underneath the seat in front of you for easy access during a long trip.  And, they both have plenty of space inside to hold all of your essentials, like your tablet and the zipper sealed bags holding your shampoo, lotions, and other liquids.  The bags feature a piggyback/trolley so that you can set them atop your wheeler when you need to. 

But where the 7720 Duffel has a sportier look and feel that is equally at home on your trip to the gym, the 7318 is also designed to function as a day bag or even a large briefcase since it has a padded compartment that can carry a laptop with up to a 17” screen.  Either bag will go beyond a vacation getaway companion and work for you every day of the week. 

No packing is complete without the perfect complementary toiletry bag. The Voyager 7220 helps keep all of your essentials organized. With twin compartments to stow and separate your personal items, you may even want to share it with your travel mate. Of course, if the hustle and bustle of the trip causes something to spill, you'll feel better knowing that the nylon lining will make it easy to clean the inside.

Once youre at your destination, you will need to carry your wallet, documents, your tablet, possibly a book to read, and maybe even your passport, at all times. A well designed cross body bag will serve you well.  If you prefer a larger bag with a little more room, consider the Voyager 7312 Crossbody Bag or Voyager Zip Top Crossbody.  If you need something smaller, the Voyager 7204 will work wonders.  Both bags feature zippered pockets and an adjustable shoulder strap to carry the bags across your chest for added security.

With a lifetime warranty on every item, youll be sure to get incredible mileage with your Jack Georges.  So if you’re going on a quick weekend getaway or going on a longer adventure, the Voyager Collection is the perfect place to begin your journey.
