Backpacks For Men, Women, and Children

SORT BY:
Backpacks make it easier for students, commuters, shoppers and travelers to carry what they need. Whether you want a backpack of a specific color or design, made from a certain type of material or able to hold whatever items you have to carry around with you, Staples lets you find just the right one.

Backpacks for Fashion and Functionality
You can narrow your backpack choice by deciding which feature is more important to you. If you're a student, perhaps you want a school backpack that makes a fashion statement in a bold, bright color or pattern. If you're a commuter or traveler, you might want a backpack that is water resistant and gives you plenty of secure inner compartments for important documents. If you're a hiker, you'll want a lightweight, durable backpack that has enough pockets and hooks to carry everything for braving the elements.

Backpacks in a Range of Materials
Most backpacks feature densely woven polyester, a synthetic UV and mildew-resistant and water-repellent fabric that is ideal for protecting supplies and gear. Other types of packs like Jansport backpacks consist of 100 percent cotton canvas, offering similar protection but with better wear characteristics.

Backpacks also come in densely woven nylon, a tough, lightweight material with high tensile strength, as well as ripstop nylon, a reinforced weave that is tear and rip resistant. Backpacks come in stylish fabrics, such as leather, faux leather and suede, that blend fashion with protective qualities. Some high-end backpack material includes waxed cotton twill, a waterproof, breathable and extremely durable marine-gauge fabric, and polyester dobby and jacquard, which are moisture-resistant textured weaves.

Stylish Backpacks for Students and Commuters
You can find backpacks in various shades of color, including orange, pink, purple, blue, green and yellow. Some backpacks are multicolor, while others offer subdued hues such as black, gray and brown. Perhaps you want a backpack with a more distinctive appearance. Choose from an array of patterns that include geometric shapes, polka dots, plaid, paisley, floral or camo. Backpack designs also feature unique artwork and animal prints.

What Makes a Backpack Comfortable?
High Sierra Backpacks offer more than just durability and room. Many backpacks come with shock-absorbing shoulder straps or cross straps for carrying comfort. Some have padded backs. Others include D-ring and buckle strapping connections and side compression straps to give you a snug, secure fit for comfortable wear, especially when you must walk long distances. Some backpacks have extra pockets and components for carrying water bottles or even a skateboard, while some have extendable pull handles and wheels so you can roll your backpack over long concourses. Multiple compartments and pockets, both inner and outer, house other important items.

Can You Fit Your Laptop in a Backpack?
Many of today's school backpacks are designed specifically to carry laptops, with bumpered and reinforced corners and textured or knobbed compartment weaves to protect laptops against impact and external elements. Laptop backpack compartments come in sizes that fit almost any screen, while many business and student backpacks also have protective inner compartments for safeguarding tablets.
