Work+ Expandable 28L Daypack

First up is a bag from our all-new Work+ collection. The 15–16” Work+™ Expandable 32L Daypack is the ultimate powerhouse for carrying all your equipment, from your work laptop to gym gear. What makes this one of the best backpacks for the gym and work is its expandability. The pack opens up to allow for 32L worth of space to be filled inside. That’s enough room for devices, accessories, and a spare change of clothes. There’s even a dedicated special compartment just for your shoes! No more fumbling trying to balance gym supplies with work supplies. Now, it can all be carried at once.

Next is the Cypress 15.6” Convertible Backpack with EcoSmart®. Built with convertibility in mind, this backpack can switch between a sleek briefcase and a regular backpack with only a few adjustments. This convertibility makes it one of the best backpacks for the gym and work. Tuck away the straps for a professional briefcase and pull them back out to get one of the best workout bags.

A bonus is that it’s constructed with EcoSmart®, our process that reuses re-polymerised plastic bottles for its materials. Not only is it great for the lifestyle of the active professional; it’s a great environmentally-conscious choice, too!
