Most men will already own a backpack because they are versatile, easy to use and convenient. But for some style is an after-thought, so the same utilitarian backpack that is used for hiking or sports is also used every day for work or casual outings. While that is perfectly acceptable, sometimes it’s nice to have a sleek backpack that suits different occasions.
All those extras that make a backpack great for a hike or sports are just added bulk at other times. If you’re of this philosophy, then look for a backpack that offers the same convenience and comfort – but with a more minimal design that is appropriate for the office or metropolitan outings.
What to look for
Comfort should not be sacrificed for style, so it’s still important to look for features that will make your backpack a pleasure to carry. You’ll want something with comfortable, adjustable straps, and that is big enough to fit a day’s worth of items in it, but not so big that you will carry around more weight than you need!
Also bear in mind what you will be packing – laptop, headphones etc – and make sure there are appropriate pockets and space for these items. A secure bag with anti-theft features will also be handy to have for travel.
