Find bags that work without the bullsh*t.

Backpacks for Work Buyer’s Guide

Hello business person! It’s important you find a bag for work that really works.

  • Enough organization — everything in it’s right place.
  • Built to last — I don’t want to be looking for another bag in 12 months.
  • Gotta have the right look — some are way too formal, others are way too casual.

Here’s some bags that have a really “grown up” kind of look to them. Check out more daily carry bags here.

One of my all time favorite bags for it's utterly functional design and rock solid manufacturing (made in the USA). To me it may not be the best looking bag on the street, but its accessibility, organization, comfort and capacity make it a LEGENDARY BAG. Seriously.
