The Best Backpacks for Stylish Kids and Grown Ups

Aaron has always been a pretty great gift giver. Our first Christmas together he managed to find out that I had been ogling this vintage watch at a watch shop on Melrose that I used to frequent in my work travels. He managed to track it down and wrap it up so slyly underneath the tree without me ever being the wiser.  Fast forward almost nine years later and this past Mother’s Day I unwrapped a leather backpack from him.  I loved the color and the materials and definitely liked it, but I wasn’t really in the market for a new bag, so it did seem like a surprising choice.  I made the transfer from my current bag, though, started using it right away, and fell completely in love! The more I wore it, the more I loved it and now I can’t imagine using anything else!  (It’s the first bag in row 1 and the last bag in row 6, but in brown, by the way.)  With the kids heading back to school it seemed like an appropriate time to suggest a new backpack, not just for them, but you, too!  Keep reading for our favorites for both…

  1. I love the kid’s State bag. I’ve been on the hunt for a good backpack. I love the leather ones but my bag is going to me for hiking or when I’m traveling and leather is not a good idea for those. but i love the idea of using a leather one instead of a purse. thanks for sharing.
