The best everyday backpacks are simple, durable and understated, and you’ll find few better examples than the Evergoods Civic Panel Loader 24, which is currently 34 percent off at Huckberry. Evergoods — a relatively young company started by an ex-Patagonia engineer and one of GORUCK’s original co-founders — makes its backpacks in small batches at its headquarters in Bozeman, Montana.
The CPL 24 stands out because it balances a minimal look with a full set of features; a 500D nylon shell fabric treated with a water-resistant coating, a curved back panel that’s both comfortable and breathable and a side-access laptop compartment that fits computers up to 15 inches, to name a few.
And while the CPL 24 is the ideal around-town pack, it’s capable enough to handle an impromptu hike, too — there are pass-throughs for hydration hoses on both shoulders.
The pack is currently on sale for $150 in the dark khaki colorway.
