Due to a bad back ( getting old sucks) I need to leave my mulberry brief case at home and use a rucksack. Any brand recommendations?
I an ideal world it would be beautiful like a designer handbag, supportive like a proper walkers rucksack, have enough space for papers, 1 book, makeup bag , packed lunch and water bottle. Budget flexible up to £500ish but would prefer £200 as I'm never going to love it like my handbags!
Fjall Raven rucksacks, great Swedish brand. Come in many colours. I saw a super chic woman wearing a silver one at the Oslo opera house last month, sneaked up to take a look at her bag she looked so good!
I love my Dakine backpack. It's comfy and capacious with a well-padded interior laptop pocket, and even an insulated sandwich pocket. I walk for miles through London with it on my back, and it never pulls my shoulders like a lot of backpacks do.
utterly practical, and not at all beautiful, I suspect it's not at all what you're looking for, as you could buy ten of them for £500.
