If you’re like me, always on the run, having to carry laptop, keys, clothes, cables, and basically “life on your back” every day, then you have probably found yourself puzzled at the lack of good backpack options.
I mean, let’s admit it, most backpacks out there look like an unsuccessful marriage between “John Rambo goes to the jungle” and “literally a tupperware with straps.” But I’m here to save the day – or so I’d like to think.
Ladies and gentlemen, after extensive research, here are four backbacks that look good, and do the job. Enjoy.

If you’re willing to sacrifice just a tiny bit of style to make up for extra protection against pocket thieves, then thank me later. Relieve yourself from the added stress of crowded commutes, with this anti-theft backpack. Have I mentioned it’s waterproof as well? Get it here.

Not A Backpack, But A Sleeve
