Ok, so perhaps the $5,500 bag I featured yesterday wasn’t accessible. Some would argue the $500 one from Master-Piece isn’t any better, but at some point you will get what you pay for.
If you still want a little style, but need something that retains its utility check out Brooks and the Piccadilly leather knapsack in particular. At about $385, it’s certainly more affordable, but made with quality materials. It’s not just a backpack – it’s got a handle and can be carried as a tote as well. You’ll notice I like having that option. It’s an 18-liter bag (measuring 4″ x 11 ” x 15″), so it’s got enough room to lug around and comes in a few colors if you want to make a statement.
