I am looking for a good weekend and spring/summer travel bag. What do you think?

I love it, but can see it being on the small side.

Barbour bags aren't British they are made in India. (not that there's anything wrong with that) but if you want a real UK bag the only one I know is Brady.

Yup, way too small. I use it as my everyday bag and love it. It's been completely battered and held up perfectly and is looking better with age.
