Backpacks are Back for School

Backpacks have always gone through their ups and downs.  The trendy messenger bag  overtook it and then the tote, but after years of awkwardly carrying heavy loads on one shoulder, students everywhere are ready to upgrade their level of ergonomic comfort with a stylish backpack this fall.  For any teen heading back to school, an awesome backpack that reflects their interests and personal style is what will define them day after day.

I sifted through the coolest sites to find the raddest backpacks out there, starting with this Nike SB (skateboarding) Eugene Backpack.  It’s definitely pricey (unlike many in my list) but it is super comfortable, has pockets for everything & will stay on during their after school stunt video sessions with their buddies.  Check out all of my favorite backpacks for the X-treme Dude and Dudette for more back to school inspiration.
