Starting at $259.95, the Everyday Backpack is worthy of all of life’s adventures.

Earlier this year I reviewed eBags Professional Slim Junior Laptop Backpack, and I loved everything from its minimalist approach to carrying your everyday items, to its unique straps, zippers and overall comfort. But for those times where I carry a bit more than just my iPad Pro and a battery pack, I wanted a bit more.
I’m a huge fan of WaterField products and use them pretty much every day. So, when I write that the new WaterField Air Porter and Air Caddy are among the best products they have delivered, I mean it. Still, I can’t help but wonder if WaterField Waterfield isn’t making a mistake with these latest offerings.
When I travel for business I need a bag that can transport my suits and deliver them at my destination wrinkle-free. When, however, I an traveling for pleasure, I don’t need to think about taking suits. In such cases I need something that holds a ton and is easy to carry. That’s where the TIMBUK2 Wander Pack comes in.
I reviewed the Lander TIMP 20 a while back, and it was one of the best I’ve ever used; sleek, water-resistant, incredibly light, and durable! Although Lander makes other accessories, I can verify that their backpack game is strong; that’s why I am excited about the new Lander Carry System, which is almost fully funded on Kickstarter.

As a huge fan of backpacks, it’s no surprise I’ve had my eyes on Oppermann London’s collection of products.

This month the company released their Collection 3, inspired by the company’s new identity.
Solo is a popular backpack company that’s bags are made to stand the test of time, all while being functional for whatever you use it for being traveling to work, school, or even going out of town.

Though plain on the outside, the inside of this bag offers a slew of organizational features waiting to be utilized by the tech-enthusiast traveler. At $79.99, the Solo Rival offers serious value.
I love Waterfield products and am always positively inclined toward them from the start. After using the Waterfield Syde for MacBook Pro for the past weeks, I’m happy to say that the company that makes some of my favorite bags has continued to do just that. The Syde is a fantastic bag for those who are looking to travel light.
One thing about commuting with a backpack to work daily, or traveling, in general, is overall comfort. There are plenty of bags on the market that promise you the ability to carry multiple items but at the expense of feeling as though you have textbooks weighing down your shoulders. That’s not the case with the eBags Professional Slim Junior Backpack.
If you’re a fan of backpacks, but tend to travel, or even walk around in public but worry about your personal belongings, there is a bag that can completely eliminate the thought of someone possibly standing behind you, grabbing your belongings. That bag is called the RiutBag R15 by Riut.

Every year, I find myself attempting to make the bag I carry lighter. The gadgets change frequently, but I try to keep the bags the same.

When I used to commute to work, I would frequently take my work laptop in a backpack and another bag of clothes for the gym.

Alright, I’ll have to admit, I have a love for a good backpack. I’ve used messenger bags for my daily commute, but I have a fond love for a bag I can place on my shoulders and be on the go with. The issue with many of those bags is that they are entirely too bulky to bother with, or just simply do not get what I’m trying to do.
I recently reviewed the commuter series pack from Exos-Gear and have enjoyed using it with my every day computer gear. The company also has a tactical style backpack called the Bravo Series, which retails for $37.95. While I had planned on using the backpack as my new shooting bag, I actually found an unintended use that works out great.
