Upgrade Your Gym Bag with One of These 8 Backpacks

Details_Equinox_logo460.jpg

It's a beautiful thing when fashion and function align. Case in point: the backpack. Suddenly it seems the once passé carryall—eschewed for its pure utilitarianism—is being strapped on the backs of the most discerning gym-goers. And the best part? It makes you look and feel good. "A symmetrical load is always better for your spine," says Luke Bongiorno, physical therapist and managing director of NY SportsMed & Physical Therapy, who's a big fan of trading in your single-strapped version for a double. "Distributing the load evenly promotes a healthy spine, muscle balance, and efficiency."

But one size does not fit all. Here, our picks to suit every gym style.
