Backpacks are essential for school life. They help you carry your notebooks, pencils, pens, and more. Backpacks are not only a necessity for school, but they also allow students to express themselves through something other than clothes. Backpacks can range anywhere from $60-$995 depending on your budget. You are able to find good deals in any price range.

The first backpack is the Bellroy Classic Backpack Plus (Second Edition). This backpack gives you plenty of space to haul your daily items. It has dedicated sleeves for things such as notebooks and iPads. Not to mention the zippers that can hold AirPods and other headsets. The bag is little more on the pricey end costing about $150.

The next backpack is a more affordable option, the notorious Jansport Right Pack Backpack. This backpack starts at around $60 and comes with a long-lasting appeal, with a beautiful physical appearance. Having Tough Cordura fabric coupled with Jansport’s iconic suede bottom. Not to mention the loads of space within the backpack, with plenty of space to put your electronics and supplies. With extra pockets on the sides for drinks.

The final backpack is for those who want to come to school in style but with a heavy price point. The Runwell Backpack is a Shinola product. Although the brand is known for their watches they have come with an amazing leather product. The storage is top tier and can fit anything from pens to large laptops. High-level padded straps decrease the feel of the weight from the backpack. This backpack comes at a pricey $995.
