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.
Planning an inner-city hiking trip during the fierce Winter? Consider gearing-up with the Marmot Urban Hauler ($50). This Japanese fishing bag style backpack is made from UpCycled® fabrics (the greenest of the green), and the internal organizer pocket lets you stash smaller goods for easy access. It’s practical gear for city-dwellers, and even more practical for jetsetters (think: overhead compartment).
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.
Baggage claim can be a nightmare when you can’t identify your luggage, which is why the classic notebook makers at Moleskine have created the Moleskine Luggage Tag ($9.99). At 3.75″ x 2.25″, these luggage tags are just like the Moleskine Classic Hard Cover Journals. We can’t promise that your luggage won’t get lost, but our guess is that you will at least have the most stylish luggage tag at the baggage claim. Comes in four colors.
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.

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.
