5 backpacks that will fit everything When I was in University I found that, out of all of the back to school choices I made every fall, my backpack was one of the most important. I bought the wrong backpack more times than I can count, and either I didn’t have room for everything or I tried to overload it and it frayed at the seams.

A backpack is your means of transport for your laptop, tablet, and all of your books, not to mention your smartphone, pens, and your ID. Without a durable, high-capacity backpack, you’ll be scrambling like I was to carry everything you need. But with one? You have a convenient grab-and-go bag you can take with you everywhere.

There are different types of backpacks; backpacks for younger kids, backpacks to impress, and, if you have a lot of stuff, backpacks to fit everything you need. If you fall into the last category, here are 5 backpacks to fit all of your back to school stuff this fall.

Heys TechPac

The Heys TechPac was designed for a business traveller, but it’s the perfect back to school backpack for anyone who takes everything they need when they leave for class in the morning. The interior foam compartment is padded to cushion your 15.6 inch or smaller laptop, and it has a fleece-lined 10-inch tablet sleeve for your tablet or e-reader. There’s also a lot of interior room for your binders, and you can use your backpack with your luggage if you’re traveling because it has a slide through luggage trolley attachment.


Swiss Gear Laptop Bag

Swiss Gear makes great backpacks, and the Swiss Gear Laptop Bag is no exception. You can load it up with everything including a 15.6-inch laptop, and it has an interior organizer for your phone, keys, and student ID.  It’s also comfortable, with breathable, water-resistant fabric, ergonomic shoulder straps, and adjustable compression straps.

If you take your skateboard along to campus so you can roll between classes, you’ll love the large capacity of the Burton Kilo Pack. It’s got room to spare for all of your books, binders, laptop, and tablet, and there’s also skate front-carrying webbing to pack up your board when you’re in classes.

ObusForme 35L Travel Backpack

If it’s a heavy-duty backpack you need, look no further than the ObusForme 35L Travel Backpack. It’s a daypack with tons of interior space and compartments including 2 front zip compartments, 2 mesh fabric bottle pockets, and a large main compartment for your binders. It also has a nice, padded compartment to protect your laptop, and is made from durable polyester.

You can pack your books and binders in style in the High Sierra Swerve. This is my favourite type of backpack because it has a big, roomy front load compartment to quickly store your stuff as you go between classes and it has a large, gusseted front pocket to store anything you may need to grab quickly. There’s also leather lashing you can use to attach other things to your backpack, just in case you’ve got extra items that don’t fit inside.

These 5 backpacks have room for everything, and they’re durable enough to go the distance this school year. Check out all of the different types of backpacks available on Best Buy right now.
