Finding a bag that can withstand the daily grind while also looking professional at the office isn’t easy. Timbuk2 is no stranger to making bags for the professional on the go, and the Foundry pack combines their experience in design with tough build materials meant to go wherever you do. Whether you’re running to catch your next flight or biking to the office, this sleek laptop bag has you covered.

The Foundry has a minimal design and, like any good commuter backpack, protects your gear from a rainstorm thanks to its water-resistant canvas exterior. The top flap features Fidlock closures to magnetically snap into a locked position and only opens with a down-and-out pulling motion. This means you can be certain the bag stays shut until you need to get inside. You'll also get a quick access zippered side pocket for getting to smaller items in a pinch, and a pass-through luggage strap that makes traveling through airport security a bit easier on your back. Other thoughtful features include a metal key clip in the front pocket to keep your keychain handy but out of the way, an external carabiner attachment point for clipping miscellaneous gear to your pack, as well as a bottle opener built into the shoulder strap that’s sure to come in handy at the end of a long work week.

Internal organization is where the Foundry really shines thanks to a large 18L main compartment complete with a dedicated 15-inch laptop sleeve. You’ll also get a few places to stash any smaller items you need like pens, charging cables, or even a small water bottle. Last but not least, leather touchpoints add a comfortable, premium feel when using the bag. Paired with its sleek lines and durable waxed canvas, it's got the right features to be your go-to work and travel bag and the looks to match.
