At first glance, these may look like your stereotypical back to school backpacks (yawn). But au contraire! With one pull, a handle emerges and they instantly become wheeled bags! Your back would thank you (if it could). Just take a few minutes and learn to drive it before taking it out on the quad with all those innocent toes.
We love the look of this casual canvas bag and its classic color, which goes with everything. It fits a 15″ laptop securely, so you can go hands free… a.k.a. with Starbucks in one hand and your iPhone in the other.
Unleash your inner Girly Girl and support breast cancer research; eBags will donate 10% off this sale to the Denver Affiliate of Susan G. Komen. This leather and canvas tote holds a 15.4″ laptop and is the perfect splash of color – even for 8am classes.
Have to rush out to dinner right after school? This stylish bag is functional for class (hello 16×12.5″ nylon tote) and fabulous for after (the pleating and stud detailing do all the work). Come to think of it, this bag is sort of dreamy…
This bag is ridiculously cool. This graphic print is eye catching – so much so that it may trigger a conversion between you and the future Mrs. <your last name>. Actually, this bag’s great for both guys and girls and comes in green and black.
Tie dye was cool when you were a kid, and it’s back again this fall. This roomy 16x13x7.5″ has lots of space for books, your laptop, your phone, snacks and even a cardigan, which is completely necessary for class, by the way. They can really blast the a/c sometimes.
Looking for something eco-friendly? This fresh bag is made from organic cotton canvas (totally brag-worthy). It’s only 14.5″ wide, so you can’t fit a large laptop, but an iPad or netbook will have plenty of room. We love the side pockets, perfect for slipping in your BPA-free stainless steel water bottle.
Go old skool with the Vans Retroactive. Decked out in classic red, this rad bag offers all the essence you love about the 80s including perforated panels and red faux leather. Not only does it look hot, but it’s 12x14x6″, making it perfect for all those books.When choosing totes and backpacks for back to school, there has to be a balance between fashion and function. Because it’s all fun and games until you can’t fit your chem book in there.
