Budget PickLight and CompactCheck Price
If you’re planning on using your bag for travel and adventures, you’ll want to look for something made of a thick and extremely durable fabric such as canvas or polyester. Bonus points if it has a slightly slippery finish—such as nylon or polymide—that you can wipe clean.
Rugged and DurableAdjustable StrapsCheck Price
Most backpack purses have at least one smaller pocket for easy access to your phone, keys or wallet. But if you are a real stickler for organization, make sure you check the inside layout. Some are one big sack, while others have tinier pockets for things like lip gloss or a pen, padded areas for your laptop or tablet, bonus RFID wristlets for your credit cards and key tethers to keep yours from getting lost.
Designer PickVegan MaterialsCheck Price
If you want a bag that can go straight from the office to a picnic or casual dinner date, look for something with a simple silhouette (no over-the-top zippers or hardware) in leather or vegan leather. Choose something in a classic color like brown, black or tan so it’ll go with anything—and never go out of style.
