The Best Functional Work Backpacks

by VanityForbes

Every year my bag gets heavier. It started when I decided to save money and make my own packed lunch. Which meant my backpack had to make space for a Tupperware box. I then started to eat my breakfast at work. My bag had to make room for overnight oats in a jar. I’ve recently discovered the importance of having a healthy gut microbiome. Insert three fruit. I read. Now I need space for my book. I live in London insert an umbrella.


As you can imagine, my bag is prime real estate and space is increasingly becoming more valuable. The bags that I currently own are aesthetically pleasing but lack the space to carry my daily essentials, so I am on the hunt for the best functional backpack.
