Best travel bags - evo Essentials

These holdalls will add a dash of style to any winter getaway

As gritters scatter layers of bodywork-eating salt and you hunt through the flotsam in that cupboard under the stairs for an ice scraper, there couldn't be a better time to pick up sticks and head somewhere warmer on a winter getaway.

It'd be a shame to pack your clothes and travel paraphernalia into that tatty old travel case though, so we've investigated five holdalls - at various price points - that'll do justice to your sun-seeking road trip.

Mini by Tumi travel duffel - £480

Tumi’s tie-in with Mini has resulted in some colourful products. Predictably, some feature Union-flag decoration, but this duffel is relatively subtle. It’s also two bags in one: the front section unzips and unfurls to act as a backpack. Buy it at tumi.com.

Bugatti weekend bag - £3195

If you can afford to spend a seven-figure sum on a car, you will exercise your spending power in other areas too, so Bugatti’s clothing and accessories division makes perfect sense. This calf-leather bag should squeeze inside a Veyron’s boot, and it’s beautifully made, with a carbonfibre-effect lining. You can find it at lifestyle-bugatti.com.

Bric's Magellano Holdall - £295

At 55cm wide, this holdall is more compact than the others here, but Bric’s focus on craftsmanship and quality is reflected in the price. The bag’s body is leather-effect PVC, but the real-leather handles give the aroma of a high-end luxury car… It's available from caseluggage.com.

Ted Baker medium clipper - £175

Despite the Ted Baker name, this is one of the more affordable options here. It’s also one of the largest, with a 45-litre capacity. The grey fabric and tan leather combination is inspired by the company’s suits. You can find it on caseluggage.com.

Bric's X-Travel holdall - £149

The X-Travel is a similar size to the Magellano (above), but is a great deal more affordable. It’s constructed from satin nylon fabric, and inside you’ll find a removable smaller bag – useful for storing travel documents. Find it at caseluggage.com.
