Best Bet: Dusen Dusen’s Rucksack


Backpacks have gotten a grown-up makeover in the past year, ushered back into style by labels like Burberry, Alexander Wang, and Louis Vuitton. While there are plenty of revamped packs on the market, Dusen Dusen’s denim version stands out. The printing process is done by hand, making each bag distinct. And at 18.5 inches tall, it’s large enough to haul your laptop or a change of clothes for an overnight trip, but the streamlined shape keeps it from heading into camping gear territory.
