Puzzled husbands take note: when there are this many great work-friendly carrying cases on the market, multiples are a must. Below, three practical bags we’re loving right now.

Poppy & Peonies Brooklyn backpack ($119) has tonnes of smart features for organization, including a padded 13-inch laptop compartment, two water-bottle side pockets and a front zippered pocket, plus a spacious interior (and looks cute, to boot). And the leather? Vegan, baby. Poppyandpeonies.com


The Sherpa bag by Taikan ($390) is basically magic. An ingenious external seam creates four exterior pocket to provide easily accessible storage solutions. Internally, this classic tote silhouette has been updated to accommodate all of our portable technology, including a padded 15-inch laptop sleeve. Also included for extra protection: nickel finish metal feet located at the bottom the bag. Taikaneverything.com

Smaller, leaner, lightweight and water resistant, RYU’s new Express Pack ($95) appeals to our multitasking sensibilities, providing an innovative way (via venting features and an interior full front zippered pocket for sweaty gear separation) to store work and workout gear together, so we can do more while carrying less. Best of all? Designed in Van. Shop.ryu.ca
