Summer may be coming to a close, but that doesn’t mean the adventures have to stop. But before you dauntlessly drive the coast of California, fly into the industrial jungle of Hong Kong, or take a small boat to the bat caves of Vietnam, you have to pack first. And by pack, we mean stuff everything last minute into one of your backpacks.

For the guy who needs a do-it-all, survive-it-all backpack, Patagonia is the way to go. It looks outdoorsy while still maintaining that laidback-cool vibe.
In terms of practicality, it is waterproof (make that weatherproof, really), has a padded compartment for a laptop, small zipper pockets for smaller items, padded shoulders, and stretch pockets for water bottles.
The Modern Guy: Want Les Essentials “Kastrup” organic cotton backpack | $495
This is for the guy who’s looking for something that looks runway-ready, yet is functional. Something that’s spacious, but won’t get bulky.
This particular backpack is more on the expensive side, but you get what you pay for. It had padded shoulders, comes with a custom padlock and keys, a dual top-zipper closure for protection, a padded pocket for your laptop, and much more.
The Trendy Guy: Herschel Little America | $99.99
The Herschel style is a popular style when it comes to backpacks. It’s hard to resist the trend though since the functionality is hard to beat, and it looks impeccably stylish too.
It’s on the larger side, so it’s especially great if you’re going on a longer trip. It has adjustable straps, a padded laptop pocket, headphone port and pocket, back padding, and a hidden zipper/key clip.
And not to mention, it comes in many different colors so you can find one that suits your particular style without burning a hole in your wallet.
The Bold Guy: Master-Piece Link Backpack | $185
The masterpiece link backpack isn’t called the master for no reason. First of all, the vibrant colors make this backpack a standout piece. In addition, the fabric is made of water-resistant nylon, so it’ll stay looking bold and fresh on your adventures.
It has padded shoulder straps, has a pocket inside for your necessities, spacious main compartment, and has leather handles for a sturdy and fashionable finish.
The Hipster Guy: Ruck Sack in Moss | $285
There’s no point in going on your adventures without also looking like you just trekked through the jungles of Costa Rica.
The brown leather straps give it a rustic feel, as well as the rolled top. It can extend enough to make it an ideal camping/overnight bag. It features two small pockets in the front to store smaller important things, like snacks of course.
