Prepared explorers know that a sturdy backpack is their best companion. Once favored by roughing-it diehards, rucksacks are now crossing over from the adventurer’s trail to the urban wilderness, complete with smart compartments to hold a modern globetrotter’s survival kit. L.L. Bean’s Continental Rucksack has two side pockets perfect for a thermos and that dog-eared paperback you’ve been trying to finish for months, while Tommy Hilfiger offers a front pocket for your faithful compass (now in the form of an app, we’re sure). So grab your essentials and get ready to carry the world on your shoulders.
