Backpack, Backpack (Dora The Explorer voice). Like it or not, school is back in session. While some of you have already gotten your school supplies because you started school earlier this month, there’s plenty of you that aren’t starting until the end of August/early September. Backpacks are a necessary component of school success, and they have gotten much cooler/trendier than let’s just say twenty or thirty years ago. On top of that, you can also use backpacks for easy traveling on those school vacations and study abroad trips you have planned. So we've compiled a list of some of the best backpack brands to consider as we begin the school year.
When it comes to selecting a backpack—or a backpack brand rather—quality is very important. Obviously you don’t want a bag that’s going to fall apart and tear easily. You’ll also want to keep in mind how much space you are going to need and what you plan on using it for (some book bags are smaller than others). Last but not least, you’ll also want to factor in your personality. Maybe a Star Wars back is right up your alley. Or perhaps a simple standard color bag will work best. Those decisions are ultimately up to you.
As always, we’re here to help. Below are fifteen of the best backpack brands to help get you started.
