Backpack Buying Guide

Ready to scout out the perfect backpack? We’ve got options. Different shapes, sizes, features, fabrics, and patterns. Follow these four steps to narrow the field and find the best-fit backpack for school, office, home, or travel.

1. Think about what you typically carry.

Do you usually carry a laptop? Books, files, and papers? Toys and snacks? A change of clothes?

2. Choose a style & size.

Look at what each backpack can hold, as well as its actual dimensions, and choose a style that matches your carrying needs and lifestyle.

3. Compare features & make sure it has your must-haves.

You’re almost there! Review the features of each backpack and prioritize which features are most important to you.

PACK LEADER

backpack

Lightweight, spacious, full-featured, and easy to clean, the Pack Leader can handle loads up to 50 lbs. Multiple pockets and compartments include a laptop sleeve and a “hidden” on-seam zipper compartment (great for phone or student ID). Padded back and straps ensure carrying comfort.

STOWAWAY

foldable backpack

Especially great for younger kids and travel, the lightweight, machine washable Stowaway literally folds up into its own front pocket. Laptop sleeve and outer bottle pockets provide organization.

OLD SCHOOL

drawstring backpack

Roomier and higher-quality construction than typical drawstring backpacks, Old School is lightweight, easy to clean, and has metal grommets to smoothly guide the drawstrings. The exterior zipper pocket faces inward (against your back) for extra safekeeping of any valuables stashed inside.

THE GIBSON

canvas backpack

A sturdy, classic canvas backpack in solid navy blue, The Gibson has two exterior pockets and an interior laptop sleeve. A timeless choice for work, school, or travel—and a favorite with the guys.

4. Choose your pattern & monogram.

OK, this is the fun (and maybe, the toughest) part! We’ve got tons of patterns to suit any age and personality. For the final touch, head over to our Monogram Shop and let us personalize it for you.
