We've looked high and low and found the best backpacks that offer all the versatility and features you are looking for.

The very best: Bellroy Classic Backpack Plus

Staff Favorite

Bellroy is an up and coming backpack maker that is really making some noise. Just take a look at its Classic Backpack Plus! The backpack is super high quality with a Venture-weave polyester that, along with the YKK zippers, is water-resistant. It has a dedicated laptop sleeve, four main compartments, and two smaller interior compartments to hold 22 liters worth of space.

The minimal backpack: Aer Day Pack

Aer is one of the most minimalist and stylish companies around, and those qualities are carried over to its Day Pack backpack. Meant to be worn day in and day out, this backpack offers the pure essentials. The outer design is minimal and useful with its water-resistant coating, and its YKK zippers are sturdy enough to handle the pulling and tugging of everyday life. Most of all, this backpack just looks super stealthy in its all black finish.

OnePlus is very new to the game when it comes to backpacks, but don't dismiss it. Its Explorer Backpack is one of the best you can buy. It starts with its handy magnetic pull-clasp opening that is both satisfying and protective. Aside from the main compartment, there are other places you can put in the gear you are carrying with you, including a secret slot on the side for your phone.

A backpack icon: Herschel Little America Backpack

This backpack needs no introduction, as it is one of the most popular backpacks around. The Herschel Little America backpack rocks the dual straps that give it its iconic look.

Ditch the frills of over-inundated backpacks with the Brown Buffalo Standard Issue Backpack that delivers a salt-of-the-earth backpack to wear.

Complete symmetry: Lexdray Symmetry Rome Backpack

The Lexdray Symmetry Rome Backpack is aimed to be a nod to the simpler times of backpacks and that it does. It just has to main zippers, the main sleeve, and the front compartment, but it can hold a lot. There are multiple sleeves for a 15-inch backpack, tablet, other notebooks, and a water bottle. It is sleek, it is simple, and it is great.

Ultra minimal: Baron Fig Canvas Slimline Backpack

Words don't do justice to the Baron Fig Canvas Slimeline Backpack. It is super slim, yet it's a world unto itself. It is on the smaller end, but its ingenious design makes it very agile. It has its main compartment that completely opens up 180-degress, and it has three sleeves for a laptop, tablet, and notebook. It is all about the hipster aesthetic with this backpack.

Jack of all trades: XDesign Travel Backpack

The XDesign Travel Backpack is supposed to be your one-stop for all things because it can do it all. It's not only a traditional backpack with the spacious main compartment that can fit a 16-inch laptop, but it also has features like the security lock and anti-theft pocket on the backside of the backpack.

Your back is now packed and covered

A backpack is one of the most important things you will carry around with you. It need to be comfortable, offer lots of space, and most importantly, look good. As a backpack collector of sorts, I can attest to how important they are for intensive tasks like traveling or simple ones like taking your laptop to the local coffee shop. Backpacks are important, and our selections offer the best of the best.

Our staff favorite is the Bellroy Classic Backpack Plus. I've used many backpacks in my day, but none have delivered like Bellroy's flagship backpack. It starts with the second-to-none quality, offering a rugged water-resistant fabric with little details like premium leather trims on the straps, and metal buckles to maximize durability. This backpack does creep up in price, but trust me, the price is definitely worth it.

Not too far off is the Brown Buffalo Standard Issue Backpack. A simpler take on backpacks, it offers a classic design that is still super functional. The nylon material it is made of is durable and lightweight, and details like the luggage strap complete the experience.
