Tom Bihn Brain Bag

Tom Bihn calls this the ultimate organizer, and sure enough the Brain Bag looks like it would be more at home on the shoulders of a mountaineer than an egghead.

Spire Meta

If you're planning on taking your 17-inch notebook to the top of Kilimanjaro, look no further than the Spire Meta.

Tumi Gen 4 FXT Ballistic

This sleek backpack is a model of form and function, but does it rise above juevenille delinquency?

Acme Made The Clyde

If you're the prototypical geek slob that our research department says you are, then The Clyde is a lot like your desk: It's big, disorganized, and easily laden with so much crap that you won't stand a chance in hell of finding anything that isn't on top.
