It’s time to retire that worn-out backpack and add a new, sporty bag to your rotation. Whatever kind of gear you’re lugging, one thing remains true: durable, functional bags with athletic sensibility are king. Our favorites also have features that make them as useful as they are attractive, like slots for sporting goods and tech-infused fabrics. Prepare to be tempted by these sleek upgrades with fresh designs and pops of color.
The everything bag
A sturdy duffle that can carry all the essentials—from your Kindle to your skateboard—is really nice to have. Look for a water-resistant material, which is especially useful when the weather gets cold and wet.
The two-way convertible
If you don’t want to be bogged down by an oversized bag, a two-in-one accessory like this keeps your phone, keys, and smaller items in reach. Wear it around your waist or across your chest.
The retro logo duffle
A spacious gym bag that can house all your gear will always make our list. We’re fans of athletic logo bags that merge a vintage vibe with super-functionality.
The revived essential backpack
Mix things up while keeping it classic. A bold logo has long been a key feature of athletic gear and backpacks, but a fresh color like pink makes it modern.
The iconic logo backpack
You already love showing off your favorite brands, so why not take it to the next level? An oversized logo over a cool print stands out in a crowd.
