10 Grown-Up Backpacks That Won't Make You Look Like a Kid
While the obvious choice for a grown-up bag is a brief or attaché case, a good backpack isn't entirely off the table. It's especially helpful if you need to haul a lot of stuff—papers, laptop, tablet, maybe even some gym clothes—and use a bag on your daily commute.
You just want to make sure it doesn't look like something you'd see on someone who still gets a report card. The trick is to steer towards pared-down versions, with clean lines and not too much bulk. Whether it's a vintage-style rucksack or a sleek modernist option, here are 10 backpacks that even a grown-up guy can sling on without embarrassment.
