From the creators that brought you the Ignoble Lorna Case Backpack, here is the Tortuga Travel Backpack ($199). A cross between a traditional suitcase and one of those gigantic travel/hiking backpack, the Tortuga is a practical piece of gear for any serious traveler. Rugged enough for frequent city travel, and composite enough to fit in an overhead compartment. If you are looking for a cool travel backpack, look no further than the Tortuga.
In the market for a backpack or a briefcase? Look no further than the Ignoble Lorna Case Backpack ($290). Ballistic nylon exterior, ripstop interior, YKK buttons, and a strap system that allows the bag to quickly be converted from a backpack to a briefcase (and vice versa). Of the many travel bags that that we have featured, this is certainly one of the most unique.
Sometimes you just need a bag to throw your gear in and get going. That’s exactly what the WHARF Army Duck Canvas Duffel ($119) is for. Hand cut and sewn in Rhode Island, this duffel is made from 10oz water-repellant army duck cotton canvas, with two exterior pockets and heavy-duty cotton straps. You can beat it up all day long, and it will never let you down.
Need a good bag for the weekends? We recommend The Weekender Bag ($95) by Everlane (perhaps that’s where the name came from?). It has a durable canvas body with an outside compartment, a structured base, waterproof nylon interior, and an inside zipper pocket. The 12″ leather strap can go in hand or over the shoulder just as easily, so you won’t look like a goof when your bag gets a bit heavy.
Stuffing your gym clothes in your computer bag can make for a bulky presentation. Consider adding an extra bag to your daily commute with the Mackinac Commuter Duffel ($95) by Hudson Sutler. This commuter bag comes equipped with internal and external zippered pockets, silver nickel hardware, a red and white gingham liner, contrast stitching, and a rust-proof zipper to prevent it from getting stuck. Proudly made right here in the US of A.
Apparently the people at Threadless have found the “i” in “team”, so they made a duffel bag to commemorate their discovery. The i in Team Duffel ($49) is made from durable ripstop Codura fabric and YKK zippers keep water out. It’s big enough to fit two soccer balls and a pair of cleats, and it has an internal pocket to keep your smelly socks separated. Just make sure your teammates see it when you get to your next pickup soccer game, Ronaldo.
There are too many good options out there for you to still be lugging around a boring black laptop bag. Luck for you, TravelTeq and Tenue de Nimes have teamed up to give you the Trash Chambray Laptop Bag (~$496). This Florentine Vachetta leather bag has
high quality, coated Japanese chambray denim lining and enough compartments (including one for your cigar) to fit all your daily essentials. Oh yeah, and it’s waterproof.
When your “computer bag” is your old backpack from college, it’s time to upgrade to a more professional look. The Cambridge ($175) from Lo & Sons is a casual, but professional choice for daily carry. Made from high-quality water-resistant nylon, The Cambridge is big enough to use as an overnight bag, but small enough to use on your daily commute. It features a padded pocket for laptops up to 15 inches, plenty of interior pockets for your cords and electronics, and a detachable messenger strap if you are the “over the shoulder” type.
Say hello to the Walton Duffel ($100), Herschel Supply’s newest addition to its outstanding line of carryology. It’s a larger duffel with exposed metal zippers, leather detailing, external pockets, and a shoe compartment so your sneakers won’t stink up your weekend wardrobe.
When you are traveling hard, you need a good duffel bag that will stand up to the abuse you put it through. The Topo Designs Duffel ($129) brings functionality to classic style by combining a simple design with quality materials. It’s made from ultra durable 1000d Cordura, with natural leather hash tabs and handle. So the next time you are adventuring throughout Southeast Asia, or even just visiting the in-laws in Minneapolis, you will know your goods are safe.
