The Stylish Traveler: Battle of the Backpack Men's Edition

Marc Jacobs

A memo to men: There's no excuse for resorting to a grungy backpack when traveling, especially when there are so many more suave backpack options for guys than for women. We'll spare you the hassle of a trip to the ninth circle of hell – aka the mall – and show you some polished backpacks for wherever your next travels may take you.

There's a fine line between looking effortlessly cool, and just looking sloppy. So guys, take note and avoid looking and feeling worn with that old backpack you've been carrying around since that music festival back '92 and upgrade with these excellent alternatives thanks to our dear friend, Marc Jacobs.

These Marc by Marc Jacobs backpacks offer the sort of nonchalant yet dapper style that ladies love and that you can afford. Whether it costs you a lot or a little, these packs will pay dividends.

Splurge: There's no need to compromise your masculinity for fashion with this sporty and travel-worthy Hi-Fi Backpack. Oh, and are those reflective stripes we see? At $288, this roomy pack is worth every penny.
