BAG­GAGE CLAIM

ForbesWeekly - - NEWS -

Typ­i­cally, haul­ing around your lap­top, tablet and other quo­tid­ian doo­dads in a shoul­der bag or back­pack makes you look like a bike mes­sen­ger or an over­grown child. Not with the lat­est two-hands-free satchel from the ven­er­a­ble out­fit­ter Fil­son, founded in Seat­tle 119 years ago: The twill Jour­ney­man Back­pack ($320; fil­son.com) is rugged and stylish in equal mea­sure, with a waterproof lin­ing to pro­tect both hard and dig­i­tal copies of your quar­terly fi­nan­cials and un­fin­ished Great Amer­i­can Novel. Gus­sets on ei­ther side en­sure that your pricey tech­nol­ogy (not to men­tion that ro­man à clef you’ve worked so hard on) won’t fall out when you un­zip. Comfy and el­e­gant, it’s a far cry from the dopey totes of yore—and you’ll never again be mis­taken for a pre­pubescent courier.
