Kastrup Backpack by Want Les Essentiels

What with the designated laptop and charger sleeves, the resilient all-weather "tech" fabric," and a travel padlock-and-key, the nomenclature behind Want Les Essentiels's fit-for-travel Kastrup backpack makes sense. (The bag named after one of Europe's largest airports.) ($495; barneys.com)

Large Rucksack by Burberry

The first thing you'll notice about Burberry's rucksack is the eye-catching color—a seriously sumptuous burgundy that's all the rage in menswear right now. From there, it's mahogany leather straps and burnished silver buckles. No two ways about it: This is more a piece of art than it is a backpack. ($1,590; burberry.com)

Estate Backpack by Fossil

Fossil bills the Estate backpack as casual, but it's anything but. Between the silky smooth leather and elegant contours, this is a bag you can bring into any boardroom without worry. Plus, if you're the type of guy who likes his name on everything, you can emboss the leather—for free. ($98; fossil.com)

Oliver Backpack by FRYE

There's a graceful symmetry—a stark contrast to its rough and rugged leather material—to FRYE's Oliver backpack: It's balanced with two side pockets, two exterior pockets (on the front), and two internal pockets. Everything comes in twos, as if the bag were a mirror image of itself. ($598; thefryecompany.com)

Shell Backpack by Brunello Cucinelli

When you think of luxe, office-worthy backpacks, you think of one material and one material only: Leather. (Preferably buffed.) Well, Brunello Cucinelli challenges you to expand your thinking, with a stylish rucksack made out of navy shell. And if you can't stomach jumping off the leather train entirely, don't worry, it still comes equipped with leather accents. ($2,995; saksfifthavenue.com)

Bondi by Uri Minkoff

Done up in contrasting leathers—one part in an eggshell off-white, the other in a bottomless black—the Bondi backpack, from Uri Minkoff, is evocative of the refined glitz and glamour you might find in a Miami high rise. ($295; saksfifthavenue.com)

Race by Saint Laurent

If you're going to grab something out of the norm—like this cylindrical bag—and expect it to fit in, be sure to keep all of the other aspects in traditional form: no zany colors, no wild trimmings. Saint Laurent's Race backpack fits the bill perfectly. ($995; barneys.com)
