A few members of The Wirecutter's staff got together to write about our favourite backpacks. For me, the choice is the GoRuck GR1. I love this thing, colour and all. It's a bit pricey, but considering how much I use it, where it's travelled with me and how much abuse it's taken over the past few years, I feel like it was a great investment.
