We get that there are only days where only a gym bag or a dorky duffle bag is going to get the job done, but you should never underestimate the style power of a more versatile vessel to cart your crap around in, one in which everything from your laptop to your unmentionables can coexist in fashion and function.

If whatever contraption you’re currently using to house all your stray essentials is inducing a visible cringe from both yourself and passersby, it’s high time you reinvented your style game with a new backpack. We’ve rounded up a selection of 10 full-proof backpacks that are versatile, adaptable and hard wearing for intensive use. Best of all, you can buy them all now.
