Product Review: Lipault Patent Weekend Satchel

SmarterTravel

What Is it: The Lipault Paris 14 Inch Patent Weekend Satchel.

Price and Where to Buy: $125 on Lipault’s website.

Pros:

  • Structured bag stays open and upright for easy packing.
  • Stylish design.
  • Built-in strap slips over luggage handles—perfect for attaching the bag to your carry-on or rolling suitcase.
  • Lightweight (weighs 2.2 lbs.)
  • Holds enough for a weekend trip—the bag is 14x10x8″ and I was able to fit a change of clothing, high-heeled boots, and toiletries in it easily.

Cons:

  • The price, which at $125 is expensive.
  • The bag’s two handles fit comfortably over my shoulder in regular clothing, but when wearing a heavy winter jacket, I had to carry the handles by hand instead.

How it Rates:

  • Usefulness: 10/10. This Lipault bag is the perfect size for a weekend trip.
  • Portability: 8/10. The built-in strap that lets you attach the satchel to luggage is genius, but I wish the carry handles were slightly bigger.
  • Value: 7/10. The price is definitely high on this bag, but the quality does justify it.
  • Durability: 10/10. The satchel is so durable that it comes with a three-year manufacturer’s guarantee.
  • Cool Factor: 10/10. The basic black satchel is very sleek and stylish, or get it in red or blue for a fun pop of color.

Final Verdict: If you’re seeking the perfect weekend getaway bag that can double as a gym bag or work tote, the Lipault Satchel is worth the splurge!
