Best Back to School Backpacks
Summer’s almost over and school is just around the corner... you know what that means: new school supplies! One of the most important items for school is your backpack; here's a look at some of the best (and most fun) options this year!
Dakine Boys’ Alpine Backpack
This is a backpack that can handle some heavy books, sports equipment and has a pocket on the side for holding your water bottle, great for kids who are always on the go, and it also doubles as a bag you can take camping! You can also buy the matching lunchbox, accessory case and pencil case so you’re totally ready on the first day of school.
Dakine Girls’ Alpine Backpack
The girls’ Dakine backpack is exactly the same as the boys (right down to coming with the matching lunchbox, pencil case and accessory case if you need them), but the main difference is the style. The girls is done in pretty purples and greys.
The Smurfs Backpack
We all feel a little blue sometimes, especially about going back to school, but with the new Smurfs movie out people will start feeling blue in a whole new way! Get ready to see some smurf supporters sporting the “I’d Rather Be Blue” backpack, made especially in kids’ sizes.
Jansport Superbreak Backpack
Jansport has been a trusted name for backpacks internationally over the years, and are known for their durability. We love the Superbreak backpack because it’s great for everyday use and comes in a ton of fun colors and patterns-our fave is the rainbow zebra print!
L.L. Bean Original Junior Backpack (Fish Print)
We love this fun fish-print backpack from L.L. Bean. It’s made especially to fit kids’ backs and shoulders, and features extra cushion in the strap and a reflective stripe on the pocket for better visibility in the dark. Don’t like fish? It comes in several other bright colors and also in a shark print!
Element Mohave Backpack
The Mohave Backpack from Element is perfect for hauling all your school books around or packing your personals for a weekend getaway. Included with the Mohave are heavy-duty vertical skateboard straps, a fleece-lined pocket with a cord portal for headphones and a small pocket pouch on your right shoulder strap. Available in multiple colorways at West 49.
Plan B Big B Backpack
The Plan B Big Backpack is a solid back pack for whatever you need to get done. Sports one large main compartment, a midsize compartment at front with an internal organization panel and cord output ability, a side zipper pocket and a side beverage pocket. There's even a vertical skate carry system at front so when you're ready to take off you take your set up with you. Available at West 49.
