Baggage Check

Whether you're running for the Jitney or just heading to the gym, you'll love these new duffels.


Fit to travel: From top right, Gap, Nine West, Banana Republic, Etienne Aigner.  

If you're like us, you walk around with a lot of baggage (no, we're not talking psychological). Gym bags, weekend bags, tote bags -- the list is endless. What about one inexpensive bag that does it all? Here are four of the latest and best bargains; they're chic enough for a jaunt to Nantucket and won't have you dipping into vacation funds.

  • Etienne Aigner's stylish oversize tote bag ($68) comes in red, navy, or black denim.

  • For a more casual look, try Banana Republic's taupe weekender ($98), in a chic, easy-to-clean khaki canvas with brown leather straps.

  • Gap's roomy nylon bag ($49.50), in neutral khaki or black, is sharp enough for practically any trip and -- a bonus -- it's virtually indestructible.

  • For hard-core urbanites, Nine West offers a swanky new line of duffels ($115); the one shown here, in dark denim with red faux-leather accents, can easily go from a Jersey-shore cottage to your office on Madison Avenue.
