Now this is the kind of back-to-school backpack I'm talkin' about. Pure carbon fiber and leather on the outside, canvas with leather lining on the inside, plenty of storage, slim profile. And a bargain at under $1,000! Especially considering that, unlike all you slacker students out there, I'm not going back to anything this fall. Day in, day out, I've been working my left butt cheek off all summer. I deserve TUMI's CFX Watkins bag as part of my Back to the Office (Just Like Every Other Damn Day of the Year) supplies.

TUMI's CFX line reflects a partnership with American manufacturer Carbitex, whose CX6 textile is a dense, woven carbon fiber that is soft to the touch. Using a wet infusion process, Carbitex has created a lightweight, high-performance material that TUMI can incorporate into their CFX bags and accessories. The Watkins Backpack has the slick, contemporary carbon fiber aesthetic, but remains malleable for comfort and ease of stashing under the seat in front of you.

The backpack interior has organizational compartments for phones and other electronics, plus a sleeve that can hold up to a 15" laptop. Dimensions are 16-1/2" long x 12-1/2" wide x 6" deep. Total weight is 3.2 pounds.
