10 Best... Stylish Running Backpacks

10 Best... Stylish Running Backpacks

Sharing is caring

So you’ve decided on running to and from work – wonderful! But what to do with your heels, your laptop, your makeup bag? A good running backpack is absolutely essential if you’re doing the running commute and need to keep your belongings safe. A normal backpack would leave your stuff bouncing up and down like crazy, the plain fabric on your back would get you sweaty and probably chafe and the lack of reflective bits wouldn’t keep you safe in the dark.

A good running backpack can be pricey but investing in one is really worth every penny. The problem is, they are usually very masculine, a little bulky and to be honest, just plain ugly. Although they obviously need all the technical elements, we don’t think that should mean they have to be unattractive. We’ve been on the lookout for some cool, stylish running backpacks for a while now, and these are 10 of the best ones available right now…


1// LULULEMON RUN FROM WORK BACKPACK, $98

Super light, floral (without being too… you know… floral), water resistant, ergonomic, plus a ton of handy compartments inside and outside for all your stuff, we vote this the *perfect* running bag for girls. It comes in a number of colourways including a full reflective version. It’ll also look just as cool worn in daily life, not just running, which is always a bonus. Although the backpack is not available on the UK website just yet, we spotted them in the brand new Lululemon Covent Garden store.

2 // NIKE CHEYENNE VAPOR 2 RUNNING BACKPACK, £60

Snazzy zig-zag design in a couple of colours, laptop compartment, the super duper special back panel allows for airflow and breathability, can hold 2 litre water reservoir, comes with a neon rain cover to keep it dry and much more. All stuff we like, but mostly it just looks really cool so we’re all over it.

3// ADIDAS BY STELLA MCCARTNEY BACKPACK, £90

Minimalistic on design, mesh back for breathability, a main top and a smaller bottom compartment and a simple mid-chest strap. Ok, so perhaps not the ideal bag for long distance running, but it sure looks really damn cool.

4// SALOMON COMMUTER RX BACKPACK, £50

The colourways of this backpack are simple yet super chic, there’s a separate laptop compartment, there’s subtle reflective bits for safety and the belt strap is totally removable so this is the perfect daytime-to-running backpack. We dig it.

5//  PUMA PROGRESSIVE BACKPACK, £40

This Puma bad boy is definitely made for girls who carry quite a bit of stuff around (bringing those 2 pairs of heels to work is totally justifiable). It’s big, ergonomic, adjustable straps all around for perfect fit, set up for a hydration system should you want to run with that and handy pockets in the belt strap for this little things you like to keep handy like keys, phone and gummy bears.

6// SWEATY BETTY COMMUTER BACKPACK, £85

This is the ultimate urban commuter’s backpack, featuring a laptop sleeve, waterproof shoe holder, mobile phone pocket with audio port and a foldaway neon waterproof cover to keep the whole thing dry should it ever rain (like, what?!).

Buy here.

7// NIKE RPM BACKPACK, £65

Another Nike backpack, but they do ’em so well we couldn’t not put this one in. It’s super simple at first glance, but features all the technical necessities as well as a board carrying system at the front should you be of the skateboard carrying type. Comes in nice colours too.

Buy here.

10// DEUTER SUPER BIKE 18EXP BACKPACK, £100

Ok, now we’re entering real technical territory here, but this one is proof that it doesn’t have to mean ugly. This one is made for ultimate comfort and features special foam contours assuring minimal pack contact and maximum airflow. Set up for a hydration system, reflective bits, and much more, this is a solid investment in a quality backpack.
