While backpacks are great for hiking trips, there are sleeker options to carry on your daily commute — like The Brief, by Bennett Winch. The English brand launched in 2014 with a line of hard-wearing weekenders, but the briefcase marks its first foray into commuter bag territory. Its rugged body, crafted from 24-ounce water-resistant canvas, is accented by luxurious leather trim, and there’s enough room for your laptop, lunch and phone. Handmade in England, The Brief is available in chocolate, black and olive colorways.
