The backpack has made a comeback. Designers from Tory Burch to Gucci have created updated versions of the bag we all carried in grade school, and we speak from experience when we say there couldn’t be a better bag for traveling. And with modern, adult-approved styles in chic leather and suede, you won’t be sacrificing style.
Think of it as the fashionable equivalent to the fanny pack. It’s big enough to hold all the essentials you’d normally carry around while traveling, and allows you to be hands-free so that you’re able to drink your cocktail/eat your icecream/position your selfie-stick just right so that you get that pic for Instagram. But really, they’re functionable, fashionable, and just tell us if you don’t feel a little cooler while carrying one.

We don’t travel without ours, and you won’t want to either.
