Have you ever been in a store looking at bags and thought “Wow, is this really all they carry?” Well the internet is here to save you from that problem by raining down options upon you. Here is my top 20 great looking men’s bags under $200.
Everlane Twill Snap Backpack
The Twill Snap Backpack is a lot of style for the buck. This backpack (especially in grey) reminds me of the Swiss Army rucksack but eschews buckles for snaps. The exterior and lining are 100% cotton twill and it sports a laptop compartment.
Timbuk2 ‘Rogue’ Backpack
Timbuk2 bills the Rogue as military-inspired with a slim, urban profile and I think they are dead on. I really like that the main compartment is spacious but there is still a good amount of organization and a nice padded laptop compartment. Plus, it only comes in reasonable colors so its hard to go wrong.
Jack Spade Canvas Messenger Bag
Jack Spade makes a very traditional canvas messenger bag. No frills. Just a bag with a flap and an interior wall pocket. It is very pretty in a Spartan way.
Herschel Supply Co. ‘Novel’ Duffel Bag
Herschel has made a standard duffel but with a few tricks up its sleeve. It’s got a dedicated shoe compartment and an internal mesh pocket for organization. More than anything tho, it’s a very pretty bag. I want the charcoal crosshatch for the texture but the black and tan is also super handsome.
TOPO X Woolrich Rover Pack
I love the Rover pack from TOPO x Woolrich. Especially in Natural / Navy with those red and brown accents. It’s got two easy access zipper pockets and two side pockets on the outside and a laptop sleeve in the main compartment. TOPO and Woolrich have made a beautiful bag.
Fjallraven Rucksack No.21
The Rucksack No.21 from Fjallraven is a gorgeous minimalistic rucksack. It’s made of a waxed cotton poly blend and leather straps. The metal post buckle system is a great because it provides easy access and is not as fiddly as a buckle and not as breakable as snaps.
Barbour Waxed Canvas Tarras Bag
Barbour is best known for their durable high quality jackets but they also make this beautiful waxed canvas game bag. There are two pockets on the front in addition to the main compartment which is lined in Barbour’s signature tartan. This sleek bag sports a traditional rustic feel while still being very appropriate in the city.
