And let’s be honest: The ratty knapsack you’ve been slinging around for half a decade (or more) probably isn’t cutting it as your everyday carryall at work. No, you want something well-built, durable, and organized—a bona-fide travel carry-on, hiking pack, or cycling commuter bag.
Whether you’re looking for a pack to serve your day-to-day adventures, serve as the ultimate travel companion, or backcountry rucksack, we’ve got a killer option for you. Check out our favorite editor-tested backpacks of 2017.
