    The recently launched men’s collection by Bodhi (www.bodhibags.net) includes designer Joseph Janus’ alternative to mundane and cumbersome travel bags. The expansive series of luggage is made of extremely lightweight, waterproof ballistic nylon. Priced from $300 to $748 and available in plaid prints or solid colors, the roomy weekend duffel bags and roller bags feature removable laptop sleeves, garment bags, and other conveniences. Bodhi also makes a range of leather-and-coated-linen travel bags and custom pieces—priced as high as $10,000—in python, alligator, or crocodile.
