Crumpler Nhill Heist Backpack

Backpacks make it easy to commute by bike, but they also tend to make you look like you just got done riding a bike. The Crumpler Nhill Heist Backpack ($175) aims to fix this by offering a sleek, minimal-angular design that still offers plenty of room inside for a padded laptop compartment, four side pockets, and a space for A3-sized papers, plus two zippered external pockets — one of which can be accessed without taking the bag off your shoulder, making it perfect for phones, wallets, or cans of PBR.

  • Outlier Minimal Backpack

    When a product describes itself as "minimal", it tends to mean a lack of superfluous buttons, or just a very straightforward design — but in the case of the Outlier Minimal Backpack ($130), it really takes the meaning of the word to heart. The secret to this waterproof, featherweight pack is its nonwoven Dyneema construction, which makes it ten times stronger than steel, yet light enough to float on water, and versatile enough to stuff into a pocket. Try that with your average Jansport. [Scouted by Katherine]

  • Poler Duffaluffagus Bag

    Named after — we're guessing — Sesame Street's lovable, oversized fur monster, the Poler Duffaluffagus Bag ($80) is similarly large, making it risky as a carry-on but perfect for lugging around a lot of stuff. Tuck-away straps let you wear it like a backpack, separate straps on the bottom let you hook it to a skateboard and pull it behind you when you're feeling lazy, and high-quality construction using synthetic fabric, leather, and metal ensures it's up for any journey you need to take.
