If you're a city commuter, student or business man finding the best everyday carry backpack is essential. The best backpacks come from top backpack brands. Some of these popular backpack brands include companies like Jansport, Carhartt, and The North Face and even some less known brands like Aer.So you might be asking what is the best backpack? Well, that obviously depends on your own personal needs. But when looking for a great (everyday carry) EDC backpack there are three things you need to keep in mind.You need to make sure it's large enough to handle all of your gear. The best backpacks have padded slots for electronics, and enough pockets to easily access your smaller electronic and analog gear. You should also make sure it's made from water resistant material like waxed canvas or treated nylon. Even a little bit of moisture can render expensive electronics useless. And lastly, you want to make sure your backpack is going to be comfortable enough to haul around all day. This includes paying close attention to its weight and making sure that it has features like ventilation and padded shoulder straps.The first backpack on our list is from one of the best backpack companies around, Jansport.

Lets face it, 99% of the people who buy a 2013 Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG ($135,000) will never take their house priced SUV off road, which is just sad. The MB G63 AMG comes with a 544-hp twin-turbo 5.5 liter V8. It's capable of 560 lb-ft of torque and is signed by the guy who put it together. What's amazing is the G63 can get to 60mph in just 5.3 seconds. Lets not forget the interior which is wrapped in Designo diamond patterned leather upholstery which covers the seats and door inserts.

Asylum ($30) is a visual dairy which documents the decay of state mental hospitals throughout the United States. For more than half history of our nation, mental hospitals were a disturbing feature of the landscape of America. Between the middle of the 19th century and the start of the 20th, more than 250 institutions were built across the U.S and by 1948 there were over half a million patients classed as insane housed within their walls. The blueprints for them were set by Thomas Story Kirkbride, the Pennsylvania hospital superintendent. These consisted of a central administration building to be symmetrically flanked by pavilions and encircled by lavish grounds offering pastoral vistas. This vision disappeared in the second half of the century through the introduction of a shift in policy and psychotropic drugs and now many of these huge, beautiful buildings, and those who lived in them, are abandoned and neglected.
