Perfect for work, travel, and play, the Desmond backpack by Moral Code is the perfect blend of style and functionality to ensure you look more 'local' and less 'tourist'. Available in naturally distressed brown leather or premium black calf leather, its oodles of pockets — zippered, and pouch slots — allow you to organize and find everything with ease while on the go. There's also an interior laptop sleeve and a handy outer zipped pocket for easy access to your phone, keys, and wallet.

One of its most appealing qualities is how roomy it is. If you have a DSLR, laptop or another large electronic with you, it will easily fit — and if you're packing light you can even ditch the suitcase and use the Desmond as your weekend bag. 

The best travel bags are those which you can carry multiple ways, and since you'll probably be carrying it around with you most of the day, it also needs to be comfortable. The Desmond backpack features a subtle exterior strap which easily slides over the handle of your suitcase handle so you can enjoy trouble-free travel.

And for those frequent travelers on the hunt for a back that will withstand all sorts of wear and tear, you can rest easy in the knowledge that the Desmond is one of the most durable options on the market — with its thick leather exterior, microfiber lining, and sturdy fasteners. What's more, this backpack is actually unisex — so you and your partner can take turns carrying it.
