If it’s raining where you reside, then you’ll quickly have realised how ill-equipped totes are to dealing with this kind of weather. They’re great for those sunny days when you can walk about town and pretend to be a model for Monocle; not so great for those days with random downpours.

Which is why we’re recommending this Jack Spade backpack. It’s made from canvas (or canevas, if you’re Colette) and it’s got everything you want in a bag – laptop compartment, space for keys, etc, etc – and looks purdy. As with everything at Colette, there’s a slight premium to pay (about $20 on top of the usual price) so we’ve included links to Collette and Jack Spade’s own site. (colette/Jack Spade)

Take a look at them details after the leap.
