You’re busy, and that means you’ve got a lot to carry to many different places. This makes picking the right bag for the job essential—you wouldn’t show up to the boardroom with your canvas backpack strapped on, would you? That said, we found a bag fit for every occasion, whether you’re heading out to shoot some hoops or hopping a red-eye to do business abroad.
