It's tough to find a streamlined, stylish backpack that a) doesn't cost a small fortune, b) doesn't look like you're ready to climb Mt. Everest, and c) doesn't look like you're ready for your first day of school.

But thankfully, this new release from Scandinavian design house Royal RepubliQ checks all the boxes.

The functional yet modern look is cut from 100% buffalo leather, which offers not just long-lasting durability (it's 3x as thick as cowhide) but a handsome natural grain for added texture. It's packed with plenty of organizational elements, including a separate zippered laptop compartment and a number of pockets and closures for stashing everyday carry staples and small travel items with ease. It's finished off with retro-tinged shoulder straps, which are subtly padded for comfort and completely adjustable to dial in the perfect fit.

The all-black-everything style is hard to beat but it's also available in a few other versions for those who want something a little less stealthy. Make a play on it here for just $237 USD.
