Gone are the Madmen days of flying in a suit. The same goes for baggy cargo pants with far too many pockets. We now live in the era of the jogger, the perfect travel pant that is a combination of comfort and versatility.
We’ve selected the joggers below based on their comfort to wear while traveling, packability, and versatility. While these are all great for travel, we made sure to include options that can be dressed up for work or a night out and a couple of options that are great if you like to get outdoors while on the road.
Just like AP Bags, the right jogger doesn’t sacrifice style for function. So, if you’re looking to upgrade your travel wardrobe, here are five of our favorite joggers paired with some of the best travel bags.
1. The Classic Jogger
Many of us can think back to wearing Champion sweatpants. The apparel brand has kept up with the times with their Powerblend Fleece Joggers. The jogger is stylish and comfortable while also being more affordable than most joggers on the market.
The jogger goes well with the Blaze, a backpack known for its cool, modern style. This backpack has a unique top handle that can be adjusted with an aluminum cam-lock system.
2. The Long-Lasting Jogger
Lululemon has been busy building out its line of everyday apparel, which goes well beyond the yoga pants that originally made the brand famous. Among their best items is the ABC Jogger, which boasts some of the best comfort and durability out there. Plus, this timeless style can easily be dressed up for sightseeing.
Much like the ABC Jogger, the Fury duffle is designed to be versatile. This dual-function bag is a duffle and backpack that makes the perfect carry-on item.
3. The Lounging Jogger
When rest and relaxation are a priority, Marine Layer’s Saturday Jogger is a great pairing for working in your hotel room or having a beer on your patio. These soft joggers are also sustainable, a double win!
The Meta is the ultimate work travel bag. This backpack has room for a 15’’ laptop and can also be carried as a shoulder bag and messenger. Plus, it is carry-on size for most airlines.
4. The Stylish Jogger
The Flint and Tinder 365 Jogger looks and acts like a more formal chino pant. Unknown to anyone except the wearer, these pants are made of stretch-infused fabric that allows for extra comfort while staying stylish.
The Boss has a sleek design can easily take you from the airport to the boardroom. This backpack fits 15’’ laptops, has a luggage pass-thru, and is made from storm-proof high-tenacity micro-ballistic nylon.
5. The All-Weather Jogger
Vuori’s Ripstop Traveler Jogger is designed for the elements with a Teflon coating that offers increased fabric strength and stain resistance. It’s a pant made for people on the go who might find themselves commuting in a downpour or hiking a local trail in their free time.
Like Vuori’s jogger, the Vipr is the ultimate travel bag for adventurous people. The Vipr redefines the modern roll-top backpack by offering a vertical opening for easier packability and access. Plus, a 36L capacity means you can get all of your adventure gear in one bag.
Get Out There and Explore
No matter what kind of travel you have planned, your gear should complement your trip while also being comfortable, durable, and good-looking. These joggers and travel bags check all of the boxes so that you can focus on the adventure ahead.
