Backpacks aren't just for the back to school crowd. The Everlane Modern Backpack lets you carry your laptop, notebooks, and any other gear you need on your back without looking like you've got a matching lunchbox in there. The Zip model offers a slip pocket on either side, a zip pocket up front, and a spacious main compartment. It's joined in the lineup by the compact Mini Zip, as well as a Snap top model, all available in various tasteful hues.
With a volume of 20 liters, the Poler High & Dry Pack is an ideal everyday bag with the added ability to keep your stuff dry. The outer body is made from splash-proof 300D Campdura, with a 600D Campdura reinforcement on the bottom and 190D Campdura lining. A rolltop design and waterproof zippers from YKK add more wetness protection, and there's also a built-in zipper for adding a dry bag to the interior, creating a dual compartment system. It has a padded laptop sleeve on the inside, an accessory pocket on the outside, leather trims, and comes two colorways.
Hobos have a rough life — but they definitely know how to pack. The Hoboroll takes inspiration from their bindles, offering 20L of capacity in a cylindrical pack just 10" in diameter and 15" long. It's made from rugged 30D ripstop nylon, uses five different segments to keep your stuff separated and two aluminum sliders to keep it compressed, and offers a secret inner zip pocket to keep valuables safely tucked away. Great for short weekend trips or nomadic journeys aboard the box cars of freight trains.
The result of two years of work, featuring over 98 unique details and hand-assembled over the course of 50 hours, the Moreca Aviator PH-1 Backpack is an impressive piece of workmanship. Its exterior is crafted from vegetable tanner leather that's treated, dried, and polished to give it a naturally-worn look, while all the interior surfaces are suede. Those include a main compartment with inner pocket, and a hidden inner pocket that you can access from the quilted back. Arrives with nickel-plated brass hardware and a unique serial number and data sheet, and limited to just 99 examples.
Arrive at your next backyard grill out with not only the right beers, but the right method of transporting those precious bottles as well.

It's not really invisible. But it does have a knack for making your stuff disappear. Thanks to a series of separated compartments, the PX Invisible Backpack lets you haul everything from a 15" laptop to a pair of shoes without looking like you're packed for a whole weekend.

There are quite a few multi-purpose backpacks on the market today, but few can match the functionality of the City Premium 27-Liter Backpack from Timberland. It's water-resistant, and features an integrated battery pack to keep essential travel items — like your smartphone and USB charged devices — juiced up and ready when you need them. The battery is light, water and crush resistant, but most importantly, it saves you from being that guy sitting on the floor next to the nearest power source at the airport, and nobody wants to be that guy.

Most of us load up our packs each and every day, with little thought given to essential things like access, storage space, and structure. Thankfully, the Three Pack backpack from Postalco has all of that covered, and a lot more.

It also offers double leather-wrapped handles, a cushioned laptop pocket, and Postalco's proprietary Hammer Nylon fabric invented and made in Japan.

Filson's bags are known for the rugged reliability, but even the toughest of products need some TLC every once in a while. These Filson Restored Bags represent some of the most loved, most used items in the company's arsenal, having been purchased, used and worn until they needed repair, and then built back up by a restoration expert, giving them attributes like weathered fabric, distinctive stitching, and one-of-a-kind patina that you simply can't find on new items.
There are plenty of reasons why you might want to pack an alternative pair of shoes with you for the day, for example if you're hitting the gym after work or have a hot date later on.

The Ultraolive Taped Seam Dry Bag prevents this unfortunate circumstance by protecting your kicks — up to size 13 — from the elements in a cocoon of 100% cotton that's been finished with DWR, backed with TPU, and had its seams taped, with a roll-down opening with snaphook closure sealing the deal. Literally.

Add in the slim, adjustable shoulder straps, padded backpanel, magnetic closure for the top lid, and top grab handle, and you have a versatile bag that's ready to haul your stuff, rain or shine.
You'd be forgiven if you take a quick look at the Able Archer Rucksack and assume its for military-style outdoor outings.

Better still, the makers of these bags are societally-minded, making sure that a portion of each purchase goes towards helping those in need (whether it's providing education or clean drinking water). Each bag features durable nylon cotton canvas construction, plenty of storage for all your gear, adjustable straps, and much, much more.
Trying to decide between a duffel-style bag or a backpack? With the Brooks Hampstead Holdall Bag, you don't have to choose. Thanks to multi-purpose straps, the bag can be carried over the shoulder, attached to a bike's cargo rack, or worn as a backpack. A roomy main compartment and roll-top design help to accommodate larger loads, and thanks to the water-resistant cotton lining and leather-exterior, it's ready for the elements, too. Hand constructed in Tuscany.
Let's face it: owning a different bag for every possible travel or adventure situation can get a bit cumbersome. But not every bag is suited to every scenario. Enter the Tessel Anti-Gravity Pack System — this modular backpack allows you to customize your bag at will, making it suitable for everything from a weekend trip, to a day hike, to your commute to the office. It uses magnets to allow you to add on backpack components as you need them, leaving behind everything you don't. And with coated fabrics and zippers, it's also pretty resilient against the elements. What more could you want?
Anyone who heads straight from work to the gym knows the hassles that can come from having two different bags for each, or worse, having to stuff sweaty shorts down in with your laptop. The Aer Duffel Pack aims to fix this problem by giving you a main compartment for clothes and gear, a ventilated pocket for your shoes, a separate compartment for your laptop, tablet, and cables, and quick-access side pockets for smaller items like your phone and notebook. On the exterior, you'll find backpack-style straps that make it easy to carry and a rugged exterior of water-resistant ballistic nylon that'll keep whatever's inside safe from the elements.
