by , December 15, 2017

Looking polished with a pack can be hit and miss. It’s all about picking the right mix of low-key style and practical features for your specific carry needs. And if those needs are office-related, you’ll want to make sure there’s at least a little organization to keep your work essentials tidy. So we’ve rounded up 5 candidates that are ready to get the job done. All-black office backpacks that mean business…

Bellroy Slim Backpack (US$ 169)

Streamlined style and thoughtful construction makes Bellroy’s Slim Backpack a solid choice for casual and formal offices alike. The bag is crafted with just two fabric panels, which increases durability and avoids side seams that could let moisture in. Additionally, two magnetic closure points enable expandability when you need a little extra space, while maintaining simple, secure and quick access. Designed to carry the essentials, the 16L pack features a padded laptop pocket to keep tech safe and secure without bouncing uncomfortably against your back. And with a quick-access zip pocket, you’ve got handy storage for a wallet and phone on the go.

The Signature Backpack combines an eye-catching contrast of textures with functional features for everyday use.

Weatherproof zippers deliver extra peace of mind when showers strike, and with the vented bottom compartment you even get a handy wet/dry storage option. As an added bonus, your purchase helps others carry too. Each time a bag is purchased Vessel will provide a school backpack to a child in need.
