Going back to school means picking new clothes, new pencils, and, you guessed it, a new backpack. Of those things, your backpack might be the most important. It has to carry all of your essentials, and you’ll probably have the same one all year, so it has to make a statement. This backpack is you for the rest of the school year.

Tough decision? It can be! Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered. No matter what your passions are, there’s a backpack out there for you. Who knows, it might even be one of these four.

The Traveler

You like hiking, biking, horseback riding and everything in between. When you’re not in school, you’re looking for your next big adventure, and your backpack is right there with you. You want something sturdy and simple, like the much-loved Kånken. It’s the perfect match for any outfit and a blank slate for pins and charms from all of your favorite places.

The Unicorn Fanatic

There’s no such thing as too much glitter or sparkle, and nothing embodies that more than your favorite mythical creature–unicorns. Oh, and this covers your love for rainbows, too, of course. What would your day be like without an explosion of color to match your prismatic personality?
