Timbuk2 Especial Primo Backpack

Some backpacks conceal outstanding function with a minimal appearance. The Especial Primo is one such bag, yet it packs tremendous bang for your buck. The backpack is fully welded and entirely waterproof — that’s saying something when you’re staring down tough conditions, either while biking, hiking or traveling. The reflective binding and markers help you stand out when the light is low, and the sleek black color and discreet logo placement both make this bag equally fit for urban streets and high-country trails. It’s also got a stretch side pocket for a water bottle or bike lock, an airmesh ventilated back panel, and otherwise comes in a messenger version.

Grab one at Timbuk2 ($200) or at Amazon ($175)
