Whether you’re an office worker, a freelancer who frequents co-working spaces, or a jet-setter who’s always on the move, the perfect backpack is out there.

With that in mind, we’ve put together some of the best work backpacks for women:

Tzowla Travel Laptop Backpack

I travel a lot for work and need a backpack that can not only be comfortable and durable but looks pretty nice. This is one I like to use.

I love it because I can hook up my electronics in the bag but take them out to wash it. There are plenty of pockets (and little secret pockets) to organize various other items. It is lightweight and looks great whether I am traveling or heading into a meeting.

Fjallraven High Coast Trail 20

I’m a remote worker and digital nomad so having a reliable backpack that can be used for professional commutes as well as outdoor adventures was really important for me. I purchased this backpack from Fjal Raven which came with a number of important perks:

    • Laptop compartment.
    • It’s waterproof.
    • It has a side pocket for water bottles.
    • Mesh straps for hot weather.
    • The brand is socially responsible.

Dagne Dover Dakota Backpack

It comes in 3 sizes. I prefer the medium or large for my day to day use. I have it in multiple colors. It fits all my work essentials PLUS extra shoes, gym clothes and fits most 15″ laptops.

It keeps me organized and protects my work materials and doubles as a gym back when I transition to working out midday. This bag is a lifesaver.

Re-Kanken Recycled and Recyclable Kanken Backpack

I’m constantly running between jobs, events, and offices and just switched over to the Fjällrävenre-Kånken in black. This backpack is lightweight, durable, and made out of recycled plastic bottles.

It is a unique piece that goes with everything in my closet and still looks sleek while carrying all my items. I always have to have my laptop, notepad, and headphones with me and this backpack keeps my life together.

The handles on top work when I want to sport a tote and come in handy when getting in-and-out of my car. Looks great in an office environment without being too bulky!

Knomo Luggage Beauchamp Business Backpack

Personally, I have a Knomo Beauchamp Backpack. I like it because it’s simple, yet very classy. But above all, I love its functionality and versatility.

Apart from using it to carry my laptop and other work stuff whenever I meet with clients or when I prefer working outside my home office, in some days, I also use it as a mommy bag. The bag may be pricey at $180, but I must say, it is worth the money.
