Looking to make the most of your day with a backpack that can handle your work and gym material? At Targus UK, we have a variety of the best workout bags that double as both professional work bags and gym bags.

Are you a working professional with an active lifestyle? Take a look at our picks for the best backpacks for both the gym and work.

15-16” Work+™ Expandable 28L Daypack

Work+ Expandable 28L Daypack

First up is a bag from our all-new Work+ collection. The 15-16” Expandable 28L Daypack is the ultimate powerhouse for carrying all your equipment, from your work laptop to gym gear. What makes this one of the best backpacks for the gym and work is its expandability. The pack opens up to allow for 28L worth of space to be filled inside. That’s enough room for devices, accessories, and a spare change of clothes. There’s even a dedicated special compartment just for your shoes! No more fumbling trying to balance gym supplies with work supplies. Now, it can all be carried at once.

Cypress 15.6” Convertible Backpack with EcoSmart®

Cypress Convertible Backpack

Next is the Cypress 15.6” Convertible Backpack with EcoSmart®. Built with convertibility in mind, this backpack can switch between a sleek briefcase and a regular backpack with only a few adjustments. This convertibility makes it one of the best backpacks for the gym and work. Tuck away the straps for a professional briefcase and pull them back out to get one of the best workout bags.

A bonus is that it’s constructed with EcoSmart®, our process that reuses re-polymerised plastic bottles for its materials. Not only is it great for the lifestyle of the active professional; it’s a great environmentally-conscious choice, too!

DrifterTrek 15.6-17.3" Laptop Backpack with USB Power Pass-Thru

DrifterTrek Laptop Backpack

What makes the DrifterTrek 15.6-17.3" one of the best backpacks for the gym and work is the sheer utility it offers. It has the space to carry all of your things, including a dedicated sleeve for laptops up to 17.3”. It’s made with sturdy materials to protect against drops and impacts, and it even has a USB power pass-thru port! You won’t have to worry about any of your things being in danger, and you can even charge your phone straight out of the backpack.
