Travel gear: ‘Vacationer’ duffel does the job with flair

Special to the Los Angeles Times

The Vacationer ($119) from Cinda B is like a big, soft quilt that’s been turned into a big, soft duffel.

The zippered bag, 24 by 14 by 14 inches, has two outside pockets, three inside pockets and 16-inch carry straps. It stashes flat. It comes in a slew of luscious patterns and color combinations, from bold to muted.

In a pinch, the Vacationer can squish into a nicely padded pillow substitute.
