Tumi breaks the mold of sleek modern bags with its new and unconventional iteration of the rugged rucksack. The Travis Backpack ($395) combines the versatility of their normal bags and luggage with the rough hewn look of a military pack. It also houses enough stowage options for even the most demanding pack animals: external zip pockets, waterproof umbrella pocket (which, incidentally, also wields water bottle, swim trunks, and other damp carries). Beefy carry handles and two main compartments, including a convertible laptop pocket also come standard.

The front vertical zipper offers access to the main compartment and also permits pass-through retrieval of your laptop. If the main compartment is overly stuffed with daily essentials, the back panel also opens accordion-style for fast access to your laptop, without the fear of shattering your15″ MacBook Retina across the airport security tiles. Last but not least, it’s made with heavy duty ballistic nylon and Tumi durability. Simple enough.
