Weekend getaways.

Whatever the circumstance, a good backpack is a must.

Here's the problem, though: most are either terribly expensive and crafted from an exotic leather no reasonable person can splurge on or drenched with unnecessary features you'd only use if you were scaling Mount Everest every other Tuesday.

For the rest of us, we just need something that's elevated, quality, stylish and minimal. Here are 10 of the very best, all under $200:

Topo Designs CORDURA Klettersack, $169

Filson Ballistic Nylon Daypack, $95

Patagonia Arbor Grande Pack, $129

Aer Duffel Pack 2, $170

MIS Backpack, $135

Herschel Supply Co. H-442 Camouflage-Print Backpack, $170

Kletterwerks Market Bag, $139

Bellroy Slim Backpack, $149

Mystery Ranch 1000D Urban Assault, $139

Arktype Dashpack Mark II Backpack, $198
