Everlane-Backpack

If you don’t yet have an upscale version of your high school Jansport in your collection of bags, you don’t know what your missing. Unlike the messenger, you can comfortably divide loads among both shoulders. Unlike briefcases, backpacks are hand’s free. The same goes for duffles. Plus, backpacks are just as cool now as they were when you were toting a Trapper Keeper and not an iPad or a laptop. Everlane is back with a new version of their backpack and this one is even better than its awesome predecessor. Better fabrics, antique brass snaps and zippers, easy access storage pockets and a waterproof interior for your electronics are just a few of the reasons that you will inevitably buy one of these when they get released. They’re also only $100 and available in two styles with four total colors. Back to school finally doesn’t suck.
