We present the best ruck­sacks to take you from of­fice to week­end away via the gym

No one car­ries a brief­case any more. Mean­while, the free gym ruck­sacks you might see peo­ple wear­ing to work are as of­fice ap­pro­pri­ate as the bat­tered Asics the same com­muters pair with a suit for their walk to the of­fice. Your bag is an ev­ery­day es­sen­tial that re­quires smart in­vest­ment, but it re­mains some­thing to which most of us give lit­tle thought. It’s time you bucked this trend.

The 2018 State of the UK Fit­ness In­dus­try Re­port high­lights that one in seven peo­ple now has a gym mem­ber­ship and, ac­cord­ing to one To­tal Jobs sur­vey, around a third of all com­muters spend at least part of their jour­neys to work ei­ther on foot or in the sad­dle. Add to this the fact that the well­ness travel sec­tor has grown 14% in the past two years – nearly twice as fast as over­all tourism – and it’s clear that stay­ing ac­tive has be­come a con­stant in most peo­ple’s lives.

So you need a carryall that can match your am­bi­tions – be that for your week­day train­ing or the ac­tive week­end you have booked for next month. To help shoul­der the bur­den and en­sure that you in­vest cor­rectly, our ed­i­tors took to the MH Lab to run, ride, work and travel with the best bags on the market. We’ve done the heavy lift­ing, so you don’t have to.
