High Sierra Backpacks

A backpack is a convenient way to carry books, laptops and personal items, and High Sierra backpacks have features designed to meet the needs of students, commuters and outdoor enthusiasts. Flexible storage options handle almost any load, and padded straps and back panels enhance wearer comfort. Staples carries a complete line of backpacks in many different styles and colors that match almost anyone's tastes. We also carry a wide selection of brands including Jansport backpacks.

High Sierra Backpacks Carry All Your Gear
Commuters, travelers, hikers and students all carry different items, and products like the High Sierra Loop backpack keep gear organized when you're on the move. Multiple main compartments have plenty of space for books and papers, and a built-in organizer pocket stores small personal items such as keys, wallets and pens within easy reach.

Many laptop backpacks have padded computer sleeves that protect delicate electronics. Others have external straps and hooks that let you carry bulky camping gear such as sleeping bags. External mesh pockets for water bottles make it easy to stay hydrated, and strap-mounted media sleeves provide easy access to portable devices such as cell phones or music players.

Carry Heavy Loads in Comfort With a High Sierra Backpack
Most of these products feature padded and contoured shoulder straps that distribute weight evenly across your back and shoulders. Straps are also adjustable; they fit almost any body type. School backpacks are designed for active users include hip belts that spread the weight across your hips as well as your shoulders. Some also have a top handle that provides an alternate carrying option.

Padded back panels enhance comfort, and breathable fabrics wick away moisture, so wearers stay cool and dry. Compression straps let users snug the pack around the load so contents won't shift on the move. Pink backpacks designed for longer excursions have internal frames that stabilize pack contents and let you carry heavy loads comfortably. The high denier fabrics used in these products are durable and water-resistant.

What Type of High Sierra Backpack Should You Choose?
A leather backpack has the primary function of hauling your gear, so consider what you carry when selecting a backpack. If you use a laptop, look for a pack with a laptop sleeve that fits your device. Student backpacks with multiple internal pockets provide plenty of space for bulky textbooks and class notes. Frequent travelers may want to choose a wheeled pack that lets them pull their gear through crowded airports or a TSA-friendly product that simplifies getting through security checkpoints.

What is a Hydration Backpack?
Outdoor enthusiasts often carry heavy loads and move through difficult terrain. A hydration pack has a built-in reservoir that provides quick, on-the-go access to water using a hose-like attachment. The internal bladder also distributes the weight of your water supply more evenly than water bottles.

What Maintenance Do High Sierra Backpacks Require?
Backpacks are designed to take abuse, so they require almost no maintenance. You can use a damp cloth to clean most packs. Be sure to wipe down zippers too, especially if they've been exposed to salt water. A light application of paraffin wax or beeswax keeps zippers sliding smoothly. Clean hydration bladders with water and a small amount of mild soap and rinse them thoroughly.
