Upvoted: Best rucksacks for all seasons

Whether to store your gear, hiking supplies or just a couple of stuffed chihuahuas, we've got your back(pack)

If you thought finding a functional bag that isn’t ugly was impossible, you’d be wrong. 

Whether it’s books, a laptop, or any other assortment of knick-knacks, you may have lots to carry around with you in your day-to-day life. With that in mind, you’d also want something that's utilitarian, but one that also keeps the fashion police happy. From comfortable to modern and minimalistic designs we've got your backs covered with carry-ons that provide great protection and organisation for all your essentials.

The handsome trooper - Victorinox Lexicon Professional (₹21,980)

Rucksacks with lots of storage are the only saviours. That said, there’s not much use in a bag that struggles to squeeze in a laptop. This millennial-monikered option, however, carefully straddles the line between useful and savvy. Durability that is synonymous with Victorinox, impact and water-resistant zippers are the added cherry on this travel-rough cake. 

The buckle-less beauty: Montegrappa (₹49,995)

Football season may be over but football fever is eternal. Why not imbibe the aesthetic? The Heritage Leather Collection by Montegrappa adds luxury in the mundane process of carrying your worldly possessions. This elegant UEFA Champions League backpack justifies its pricetag with loads of neat touches and details.

The backpack Ninja: William Penn Fedon Ninja (₹12,500)

It is possible to get pure minimalism without the fussy details. This backpack is proof - it can fit in a 13in laptop, comes with padded back and shoulder straps, is water resistant and can store your essentials. The waterproof sleeve that comes along, keeps your items safe when it pours.

The simple solution: Neopack Urban Commuter (₹4990)

Black is forever beautiful, but when it comes with the dual function of serving as a backpack and a briefcase, hidden zips and pockets, is pretty theft-proof, is fitted with a USB charging port to prevent your smartphone from slipping into a coma – the basics will suffice.
