Sure, we’ve featured more than a few simple backpacks, but there’s something especially nice about the one from Joshu+Vela. With no external pocket, it refuses to be cluttered, and, with its robust materials, will most likely refuse to break down after years of use. It does have one interior pocket along with an interior iPad Sleeve, so you won’t be entirely bereft of organization. Choose between waxed twill canvas (olive, black, navy, natural, or safari tan) and black leather (super sleek, but more expensive, of course). There’s a small version of the backpack too, which is perfect for daily commutes.
