WE HAVE LISTED THE BEST COMMUTER BACKPACKS FOR ALL OF YOU TRENDY CITY RAIDERS! … YOU’RE WELCOME.

Even when commuting from home to work and around the city can be often not only frustrating but also quite boring, it’s important for a lot of us to look good and have all of our essentials with us at all times. And there is nothing worse than a backpack that doesn’t match your perfectly thought of Instagram-ready outfit. You never know when someone is about to take a photo of you and ruin your image forever. Of course, this is all a little far-fetched, but we know that having a good-looking pack that will not only embody your inner animal but also make your life that much more comfortable is quite essential. We, as committed Londoners, have prepared this ultimate list of the best commuter backpacks that you can put on whether you are travelling on a bike, tube, bus, or foot. Oh, and they are super affordable so don’t worry about having to go without food until your next pay. 😉 Now you have no excuse to carry that ugly, dirty pack you have had for years since you were 12.
