Juggling the amount of items we tend to tote around on a daily basis is an arduous process. Add in the extra effort of a work commute and the balancing act of handling phones, laptops, wallets, and a cup of coffee, and you’re ultimately forced to become more active than you ever imagined being that early in the morning. All of that dextrous work requires a bag that leaves our hands completely free. No longer just a back-to-school necessity, the backpack is the adult’s commute savior.
Swapping out your tired work tote for a work-ready backpack saves you the hassle of the juggling too many things at once. With a backpack — a.k.a the modern carryall of choice — you can schlep in style. Don’t believe us? We’ve rounded up 16 options that will give you a hand — literally.
