Backpacks are the briefcases of today's professional. My husband uses light rail or rides his bike to and from work. A backpack is perfect for carrying his laptop and other essentials.

Backpacks are also used by older/elderly men and women as it is simply a convenient way to carry stuff you need to have with you.
