Backpacks, totes and briefcases offer users many ways to carry books, laptops, gym clothes and personal items across town or the college campus.
These products include practical bags made from rugged materials designed for outdoor use as well as designer products with colorful and stylish finishes.
Staples carries a complete selection of bags, briefcases, lunch totes and water bottles from manufacturers such as Case Logic, Timbuk2, Thermos and High Sierra.
Bags, Backpacks, and Totes That Provide Exceptional Storage and Carrying Flexibility
When choosing a bag, consider both how much and what you'll carry.
A lightweight tote is ideal for taking a few light items to the beach or park, but a weekend trip or day hike may require the more substantial storage offered by an outdoor backpack.
Briefcases combine a professional appearance with lockable storage for critical documents, electronics and personal items, and handbags include exterior pockets for cell phones and interior zippered pockets for keys or checkbooks.
Many messenger bags and packs have multiple divided compartments that keep smaller items organized and padded laptop sleeves that protect delicate electronics from impacts.
Modern insulated totes and water bottles make it easy to take lunch to work or keep beverages cold, and compact padfolios let business travelers keep notes and documents organized on the road. Many bags designed for longer trips have external pockets and organizers that provide convenient access to travel documents, water bottles and personal electronics.
Some packs include compression straps that let you prevent stored items from shifting as you move; others have exterior straps for extra items such as bike lights or bedrolls.
Choosing A Backpack That Is Versatile and Stylish
Bags and backpacks come in many different styles and finishes. Messenger bags and packs designed for outdoor use feature rugged materials such as ripstop nylon, and some include waterproof liners that keep contents dry.
Totes, handbags and many school bags come in an eye-catching range of colors and patterns, and business storage solutions use materials such as stylish hard-wearing leather that complement office wear or sturdy high-tech titanium that can withstand the roughest treatment.
Comfortable Backpacks Lighten the Load
While totes and briefcases designed for short excursions typically have simple handles or straps, packs and bags designed for longer trips have additional features that manage heavier loads comfortably.
Padded shoulder straps distribute weight evenly across the wearer's shoulders, and breathable back panels offer a feeling of coolness.
Many laptop and messenger bags have sling-style shoulder straps that offer hands-free carry options and are easy to take off or put on. Frequent travelers may want to consider bags designed to simplify air travel, such as those that have easy-to-open zippered compartments that speed up security inspections.
Wheeled bags with built-in handles can be rolled through busy airports.
Totes and bags combine practical storage, organization and comfort features with color and style options. Internal dividers, pockets and sleeves keep electronics and personal items organized, and rugged materials protect bag contents from dirt and moisture.
