In this guest post I”ll review my favorite weekend bag, the Lapault 20″ 2-Wheeled Foldable Duffle Carry-On bag. I’ll also share how I maximize the space in this relatively small bag. This post is brought to you by Points, Miles & Martinis while Jason is out with two broken wrists and a microphone. Keep an eye out at MilesQuest for future guest posts by other Boarding Area bloggers. Make sure you read all the way to the bottom to get a chance at Continental currency being given away in this post.

I use this bag mostly on short weekend getaways because of its small compact size. It retails for $189 directly from Lapault. The bag comes in six different colors, we went with black.
If you are good at maximizing space, you can get away for 2 weeks with this little gem. We mostly use it for short jaunts but have recently used it for our trip to Bora Bora. The bag has an extra long handle. The extra long handle prevents the bag from clipping your heels when you are wheeling the bag behind you. The wheels are also partly on the inside of the bag helping it fit into small places.

You may have wondered what those travel cubes in the picture above were. They are Rick Steve’s travel cubes. The cube set can be picked up at Rick’s website for a reduced price of $14.35. I would recommend at least 2 sets. These little cubes are the best way to pack light. You can fit so much into these little bags. The best part is if you are a neat freak they keep all of your items organized while you are traveling.
