Shopnic

Goodness knows there’s plenty of totes to choose from nowadays, but this shopper is slightly different in that it has an internal spring to provide structure. When you’re not using it, it folds down to store easily in the back of your car or in a cabinet.

The Satchel from Linus Bike

I like how this satchel can be worn on your back securely with a waist and shoulder strap or, if you’d rather be unencumbered, you can easily hook it to your bike rack. Magnetic closure and a padded sleeve for your laptop finish out the function.

Bürowolfgang Bag

If you tote around your vinyl records occasionally, you’ll be pleased to know that this bag is big enough for that plus a front pocket for a laptop or tablet. Music producer Paul-David Rollmann collaborated with designer Patrick Koenig on the Bürowolfgang Bag, so rest assured your records will be transported appropriately to the specifications of a pro. Available in blue or black leather. (If you don’t tote around records, just think of the larger sketchbooks/magazines/newspapers that would easily fit instead.)

LENORE Capsule Backpack

This is such a smart bag. It’s a backpack and duffle that’s super simple in visual design. Featuring all the credentials that one could want in a backpack (ballistic nylon, fully lined nylon Ripstop interior, padded straps, padded airmesh back, exterior stash-pockets, etc.), it quickly converts into a mini-duffle with a simple shoulder strap restraint system. Imagine the ease of taking this on a plane journey; others will no doubt silently seethe after messing with their finicky carry-ons. From IGNOBLE. More pics and info below.

Cora Classic Rucksack

If you’re not happy with current offerings at your local backpack supplier, take note of the Cora Classic Rucksack. Constructed from wear resistant 400D high density nylon, the Cora has a total capacity of 36 liters with the necessary padded shoulder straps and Airmesh back. It’s obviously built with function in mind as there’s nothing extraneous in its design, which suits those that prefer more utilitarian gear perfectly.

Corner Store Leather Bag

Cast of Vices has created a luxury lambskin leather version of those ever-present plastic bags. While most of you already have your reusable totes (don’t you?) for groceries and such, you might want to have a nicer (i.e. non-mucky) bag to use for finer purchases. The four patterns (‘Have a Nice Day’, ‘Thank You’, ‘I HEART NY’ and ‘Recycle’) are hand embossed and sewn in Los Angeles.

Knapsack by Fatboy

Judging by the look on the model’s face, you’ll be absolutely delighted with this knapsack-slash-picnic-blanket. You can stash all your stuff in the knapsack and then unfold/untie at the park or beach and you’ve got a picnic blanket all set. (Being mid February with dreary weather all around, this sounds like a great idea, but mostly because the words ‘picnic’ and ‘beach’ sound so incredibly nice. Picnic! Beach! Sunshine…)

Newspaper for Rain Bag

Right now it’s raining here in London (cold, windy, etc.) and on the streets just below my window I’ve seen two people so far that are trying to keep soggy newspapers above their heads in hopes of keeping some part of themselves dry. More than several are without any protection whatsoever, and the elements have soaked them through and through. Now, silly them, if only they had something like this handy bag here, they’d be better off for sure.

So, yes, it’s a bag that looks like a newspaper and unfolds as a newspaper would when you’re caught in the rain. Reminds me of the Newspaper print laptop bag by mitemite that I posted a while back (and bought). Just one thing to note, though, there’s no zippers on the tops of the compartments, so if you do hold the bag above your head, watch out that you don’t spill your contents all over the sidewalk.
