Back to School: Top Backpacks for All Your Devices

If you are going back to school, you are going to need a great backpack. Below, we’ve hand-picked a selection of backpacks that won’t only secure your belongings but will also help you look good while doing so. These backpacks are lightweight, durable, and affordable, ensuring you never have to compromise quality for the sake of cost.

Incase ICON 16" Backpack with Woolenex

Sometimes the best choice is something sleek and simple that has all the features necessary to get the job done. I think the ICON, from Incase, is one of those bags with a fairly streamlined design and an assortment of pockets and compartments to keep things organized. The top two most important are going to be the dedicated 16" laptop compartment. The main compartments offer slip pockets for organizing your notebooks and papers while a front pocket organizer will keep your pens and electronic accessories nice and safe. On top of this, it has side zip storage pockets, a plush-lined top drop pocket ideal for phones, and adjustable shoulder straps.

Thule Subterra Daypack

Another commuter-friendly option is the Thule Subterra Daypack, available in Dark Shadow (black). It holds a 15" MacBook and a 10.1" tablet with bumper protection specifically for the laptop pocket. There is also two-way access to your devices and a removable accessory compartment. A quick-access expandable front pocket is perfect for items like chargers, while a hidden vertical pocket will be good for holding headphones or a wallet. Additionally, it has a dual daisy-chain attachment system, which lets you hook up carabiners, lights, bungee cords, and more to store additional items.

Peak Design Everyday Backpack

My everyday backpack is, well, the Everyday Backpack from Peak Design. Available in 20L and 30L varieties, I find the smaller 20L to be a better pick for daily use, and you can read about my experiences with an older version of it here. However, one important thing to note about this bag is that you may struggle to fit your textbooks in it. Designed as a camera bag first, if set up properly it could easily find itself at home in the classroom. The main advantage of this bag is the FlexFold system, allowing you to adjust the bag quickly and easily to hold various gear, such as a camera body and multiple lenses. These can be moved around and completely taken out to make more space if needed for versatility. Also, the top of the bag has a top flap with a magnetic latch for quickly expanding and contracting the bag to make room based on what you are carrying that day. There are two side pockets that can even hold a tripod, and it is constructed from a Kodra fabric with a weatherproof DWR coating.
