It has a padded laptop sleeve on the inside, along with a zipper pocket and other little pockets for phone/pens/etc., which many men's weekenders don't seem to have.<br/><br/><strong>Nice! So... What's in it?</strong><br/>You'd be amazed what I can fit in a weekender, but it's all very utilitarian. No books, no papers, in fact nothing I can possibly get by without. Just some clothes I can wear anywhere and pack easily, some essential tech items, and paperwork - one American passport and one German.<br/><br/>

Now, I love all the islands, but because Maui was my first Hawaiian vacation - and in some respects it's the easiest for family travel - I'm thinking there.<br/><br/><strong>What's your bag?</strong><br/>The TravelPro Platinum 7 Rollaboard Suitcase. The 22" fits in all but the smallest planes' overhead bins, so no checked luggage. It's also big enough that there's still plenty of room for souvenirs at the end of the weekend.<br/><br/><strong>Nice! So... What's in it?</strong><br/>A swimsuit, obviously; my current favorite is Modcloth's retro Fruity Suity. It reminds me of something Esther Williams might have worn. I'd also have the Scala sun hat, a wide-brimmed hat that provides SPF 50 (I currently have three in red, green and yellow!), my 13-year-old's GoPro to catch her surfing the waves, my marbled cone shell found on a 2007 walk along Wailea, some Keen water sandals for rough lava rock beaches like Makena, a lightweight sweater to dress up for the island's fancier restaurants, and some L'Oreal Total Repair Extraordinary Oil to keep me from looking too windblown!<br/><br/>

If she is happy and entertained, we can survive anything! I've got to have an iPhone for photos and travel apps, a backup charger, and an iPad in a red cover so it's easy to spot. Then there's BoBo's Oat Bars for when hunger strikes, Sephora make-up removal wipes for me (and the kid!), a coloring book, black leggings to pair with anything, and a rain jacket or lined coat for fall and winter.
