Both of SO's choices for backpacks have won travel awards.

Victorinox Rath Slim Backpack

Designed for “office, travel or everyday use” this backpack has more pockets than you'll know what to do with and is perfect for staying organised. With waterproof external zippers and space for a 17-inch laptop, this bag conveys that “you're ready for anything”. Retails for US$225.

Aer Travel Pack

This is a versatile backpack that keeps you organised and prepared and with the adjustment of a couple straps, can go from a day bag to an overnight one. It has a dedicated quick-access pocket for travel documents, is water-resistant, has a separate ventilated compartment for shoes (or worn clothes) and “takes the headache out of travelling”. Retails for US$220.
