A lot of backpacks these days try to cover every square inch of fabric with pockets and design flourishes. There's a time and a place for water bottle pouches, headphone routing holes, custom-fit iPad sleeves, but sometimes you need a bag with a cleaner look, and this Herschel Supply Company bag fits the bill.

The design of this bag is about as subdued as they come, and it's surprisingly classy-looking for something so inexpensive. Amazon has it marked down to an all-time low $40 today, but promo code 20SPRBREAK will knock off an extra 20%. The code will work on other colors of the bag as well, some of which are cheaper, but the classic black is my favorite by far. [ Herschel Supply Co. Parker Backpack, $32 with code 20SPRBREAK]

Need some clothes? The code works on a variety of styles for men, women, and children as well.
