We live in a world awash with quality backpack brands, yet Sandqvist still manages to stand out as one of our favourites. The brainchild of brothers Anton and Daniel Sandqvist, they're the sort of bags that work for a quick ramble across a spectacular Nordic landscape, but are equally suitable for shuttling your essentials about town.

And – surprise, surprise – they look excellent, too. As with most things Swedish, Sandqvist backpacks have that signature uncomplicated aesthetic, featuring clean lines and fuss-free design.

So whether you're preparing for a new life as a woodsman in rural Scandinavia or are just in need of a quality bag to take on holiday, Sandqvist literally has your back.
