If your holiday season involved getting a new backpack, purse, or suitcase as a gift, you're no doubt thinking of what you'll stuff inside the thing, along with what to keep out of it (you don't need four of the same day planner). We scoured the web and found some pretty tricked out bags this year, so take a look at some of the best featured bags of 2017.

Don't be jealous, but this bag is pretty impressive. Whether you're a seasoned photographer or a shutter-happy novice, you can appreciate all the gear in photographer Floyd Dean's kit .

Of course, you need some particular gear when you're heading up a hill, and an iPad might not be on the list. If that's the case, take a look at this bag packed for a trip around the Chanctonbury Ring hill fort. It's filled with safety gear, sustenance for the hike, and some choice garb to keep you dry and free of bug bites.
