The Top Daily Carry Bags of 2018

What are the most important feature to YOU in a daily carry bag?

  • Look and feel — too hip? not hip enough? don’t care at all?
  • Organization — are there enough pockets?
  • Capacity — can it fit enough stuff for you?

Here’s my list of the best daily carry bags of 2018.

 

Small Daily Carry Bags:

I tend to use a smaller daily carry bag for my everyday use.

Minaal Daily Backpack

Small, light, great tech organization, great materials, solid look. This bag is really fun to use.

Aer Work Day Pack  

Aer Work Day Pack

The Day Pack from Aer's Work Collection was instantly one of my favorite simple daily carry bags because it's minimal frame but high-functioning insides.

Brown Buffalo Conceal Pack  

Brown Buffalo Conceal Pack

The thing about this one is it’s street style. It’s simple, clean, minimal and unique in it’s “vibe.” It’s made really well by a seriously passionate indie bag artist. If it were up to me, I’d update the organization a bit, but ultimately, I love using this bag.

Aer Fit Pack 2

Affordable AND good tech organization AND built well; this one is hard to beat. If you need a quickie it’s a good one.

Qwstion Simple Daily Carry Bags

Qwstion is a product design studio in Zurich Switzerland who makes very stylish bags for the "hipper" areas of town without sacrificing functionality.

The Mountain Briefcase from Topo has been one of my favorite personal daily carry bags due to it's look and feel as well as the perfect size for my style of daily carry.


Med-Lrg Sized Daily Carry Bags:

When I need to carry more stuff around with me, I go for one of these daily carry bags.

Waterfield Bolt Backpack  

Waterfield Bolt Backpack

One of my favorite pocket/organization setups in a daily carry ever, AND your fingers will love touching this bag because the materials are so dope.

Aer Flight Pack  

Aer Flight Pack

The Aer Flight Pack is a dope little daily carry backpack. It has a kind of slick look to the design (though it also has a kind of "turtle shell" vibe).

Wandrd Prvke Rolltop Backpack  

Wandrd Prvke Rolltop Backpack

The Wandrd Prvke (pronounced "provoke" or "perrrrvrkeeee") is one of our favorite bags of all time for both daily carry and minimal travel. Built rugged, good looking, water resistant with tons of pockets. It comes in 2 sizes — we like the 20L for daily carry and minimal travel and the 30L for bigger bodies and longer trips.

Peak Designs Everyday Backpack  

Peak Designs Everyday Backpack

The Everyday backpack from Peak Designs is so thoughtfully designed and innovative that it deserves to be in a damn museum!

GoRuck GR1  

GoRuck GR1

It will last you your whole life. If it at all looks interesting to you, sell out to this bag and use it for the next 2 decades. 21L is the only size for daily carry IMO.

Tom Bihn Guide Pack  

Tom Bihn Guide Pack

OK, another one you could just sell out to… for life. Customizable with the side packs (which can be made into fanny packs!) Ultimately, tho, not enough tech org to be my main gig 🙁

Tom Bihn Synapse 25  

Tom Bihn Synapse 25

Just literally the best bag to use. Not my favorite style, but I shit you not: if you use this bag you will love it. I reach for this all the time — especially in travel — because it makes such a great daily carry, hiking bag, or minimal travel bag. The fact that it does all three so well makes it one that’s always in my quiver of bags.
