    Not sure if this is the right forum, but I am looking for a high quality backpack for work that would be able to contain a handgun and my laptop. It needs to be less military and more professional looking.

    Any serious help would be appreciate.

    Maxpedition Monsoon! Carries my laptop, my CZ PCR and a lot of other stuff as well. High quality construction and even higher quality utility. Looks classy on!

    I think any Jansport type school backpack from a dept store or sports authority would serve that purpose just fine. How professional does it have to be? Is this for school? work?

    I'll second the Maxpedition Monsoon. You can draw while keeping it on, it has velcro accessories to help modify gun compartment if needed.

    This is really for business - I like the Max slings but while the rest of the office carries (or rolls) in business cases I prefer a backpack - so, unfortunately, it needs to be more business-like in appearance.

    I appreciate the advice received so far.....

    For business I haven't found a better product than Briggs & Reilly. Absolutely the best luggage I have ever owned. Lifetime guarantee even against airlines. (seems odd somehow to carry a gun in a bag with a "lifetime" guarantee but I digress)
    Check out their backpacks.

    I travel almost every week and Briggs and Reilly held up when Tumi (wildly overpriced) fell apart.

    If you're going to put weight in the pack, make sure the load is not carried by the zipper. It should have straps and buckles to carry the load.
