Whether you’re heading
back to school, or let’s be honest, just want a new bag for Fall, the backpack
is the bag for you. No longer just for little kids on their first day of class,
the backpack has made a come-back, and we couldn’t be more excited. Gone are
the days of lugging a laptop bag, gym bag, and a separate handbag (all the
while, your water bottle is slowly destroying all the contents of your purse),
these four brands have reinvented the backpack into one perfect carryall that
look so good, you’ll be the most popular kid on the playground.
We love give-back brands. State Bags will not only set you up with a sweet bag that organizes your entire life (cell phone pocket, water bottle pocket, key clip, ipad and laptop pockets), but for every bag sold, they deliver one to an American child in need, packed with tools to help these kids succeed. Even if you’re not heading back to school, you’re setting someone up for their future, and that’s an awesome feeling.

Overt’s Noho bag is the perfect “day to night” backpack. With a removable pouch for all your essentials, you’ll never be caught having left your metro card…wallet…keys in your “other bag”. In a stylish leather/neoprene combo, you might never need to buy another bag again.
