If you travel for work with any regularity, you’ve considered the backpack.

Which means you’ve considered the backpack problem: it’s easily the most practical way to stow your gear, but finding one that doesn’t sacrifice style or professionalism is a lot harder than it should be.

That’s why we’re all about HP’s Powerup Backpack. It’s clean. It’s practical. And thanks to a built-in side-pocket plug, it’ll charge all your tech on on-the-go. The carryall features a 22,400 mAh battery, which’ll provide enough juice to charge your laptop, your phone 10 times over or your tablet three times over.

And the bag’s as handsome as it is gadget-friendly. Canvas construction. Nothing too flashy. Comfortable, too: a built-in heat sensor ensures you never overheat, and the accompanying rain slip ensures your gear is always protected.

The HP Powerup is available for preorder right here and ships in October.
