Crossbody backpacks reduce the strain on your back and shoulders when carrying laptops, books, and other daily necessities. From bags with a single strap like messenger bags to those that go on the back or across the body, Staples® carries a variety of backpacks that meet the needs of most users. Choose from a large selection of popular brands like High Sierra backpacks, SwissGear backpacks, and more.

Crossbody Backpack Styles
Leather backpacks for wearing across the body come in different styles for improved usability in a range of situations. Messenger-style bags feature a large center compartment with a long strap that goes over the head and across one shoulder. This positions the bag on your hip and reduces the need for using your hands for carrying. The hip placement provides quick access to the contents and eliminates the need for taking the bag off when taking a laptop or other necessity out of the pocket. Sling bags, on the other hand, have a streamlined design that holds important papers, small notebooks, billfolds, wallets, and other smaller items. These backpacks sit either over the hip or on the back, depending on the wearer's choice.

Some rolling backpacks have straps that zip or otherwise connect, providing multiple carrying options. Users can separate the straps for carrying on both shoulders or connect them for carrying across the body. Sling purses provide multiple compartments and longer straps that go over the head and one shoulder. This style lets users carry all the essentials in a secure way that reduces the chances of someone snatching it out of their hands.

Consider the Features on Crossbody Backpacks
Sling backpacks and messenger bags have multiple pockets and compartments that keep items organized. Some styles feature compartments and sleeves for laptops and tablets, along with exterior pockets for water bottles, cell phones, pens, and other items users reach for constantly. Laptop backpacks with locking zippers let users add TSA-approved devices when using them as carry-ons or checked luggage. Consider products with thick padding that protects laptops and other sensitive devices from drops and bumps. Waterproof bags ensure the contents remain dry when wearing in rain or other wet conditions. Top carrying handles let users pick the bag up easily when moving it short distances.

What Materials Are Available for Crossbody Backpacks?
Nylon crossbody bags provide a durable, water-resistant design that works well for carrying items back and forth from the office or gym. Polyester products come in different thicknesses and weights that improve rip and tear resistance. Leather styles provide a professional look that withstands frequent use. Pink backpacks provide durability that resists wear and tear, and some designs incorporate waterproofing for increased protection.

What Are the Benefits of Crossbody Backpacks?
Crossbody backpacks evenly distribute the weight of the items you're carrying over both the front and back of your torso. This eliminates the neck and shoulder fatigue seen with traditional backpacks. These styles free both hands, making it simple to carry additional items, capture photos, and take part in other activities. Since most sling backpacks sit at the hip, users can reach into the pockets whenever necessary without stopping and removing the bag first.
