Simple Backpack

How many simple backpacks have we featured? A lot. This one now joins the club, as it is simple (and named such) with no exterior fussiness to ruin your slim silhouette. Inside, it packs a lot of organization: there’s a sleeve for your 15″ laptop, plus a roomy zippered pocket for valuables. Two hidden outer zippered pockets give you easy access to mobile phone, keys, and pens, so you can easily grab them when needed.

The Citadel Minimal Pack

Yes, you’ve seen backpacks from Black Ember before, but this new Citadel pack offers a more minimal look. It favors a sleek front, in comparison to the Citadel Modular Pack ($255), which has a more adaptable facade for carrying your gear. With their latest performance textile, the 900-Denier 3-Layer Micro-Hex in Deep Black, the Citadel pack’s surface reduces reflection and ensures an IPX-06 waterproof rating.

Zippelin Travel Bag by FREITAG

What a smart idea; the Zippelin Travel Bag by FREITAG deflates for storage. Huh? Yep, it uses an inner tube of a bicycle for its frame, so you can just deflate it and roll it all up when you’re not traveling. Equally impressive is the material each Zippelan is made from- used truck tarpaulins are washed, cut, and fashioned into each one-of-a-kind, colorful bag, so you’ll know exactly which bag is yours when it rolls out in the baggage claim.

Briefcase schmiefcase, who wants to lug around a bag that looks like it holds the nuclear codes?

Wicker Lunch Box

Okay, so maybe this isn’t the highest quality lunch box/bag you’ll find (look at the price), but you might as well trick your eyes into thinking you’re on a picnic, because then you’ll enjoy that sandwich just a tiny bit more. Of course, do be sure to note that this is a wicker printed soft lunch box, and not actually a wicker lunch box. There’s also a Wicker Wine Cooler for boozier lunch/evening occasions. You can even get a zipper bag (that looks like a Mason Jar) and some Buoy Bag Clips.
