There are SO many cute backpacks for back to school. Trust us! We’ve spent days pouring over thousands of packs.


But we had a mission! This list contains backpacks that are both stylish AND comfortable. If the pack didn’t have cushioned shoulder straps that could withstand the massive weight of the many books we are required to lug around all day…it didn’t make the list. We will save those packs for the weekend and save our backs while we are it!

Backpacks can be a big investment but when you think about it, we carry them five days a week and put a lot of wear on them. So, the list includes bargain, mid range, and splurge packs. The splurge bags are more of a financial commitment but they will withstand some mileage and years.

Another thing to consider: Will you tire of the design? Is it cute but will it clash with your clothes every single day? We got you covered with classic designs that will go with everything you wear and never go out of style. But that doesn’t mean we left out the bananas, stickers, and our little friend at the end! How could we resist?
