Extra Large Backpacks

Extra-large backpacks offer students, commuters, and travelers the space they need to store school supplies, laptops, water bottles, and other essentials. Products with spacious compartments hold books and office supplies securely, airport-friendly bags are ideal for long trips, and rugged models with internal frames withstand challenging outdoor adventures. Explore the backpacks, briefcases, and school supplies available at Staples® and find the right extra-large backpack for your next adventure.

Extra-Large Backpacks Carry Gear Efficiently
Most of these bags have one or two main compartments with room for bulky objects such as textbooks, files, or clothing. Padded sleeves provide extra protection for laptops up to 17 inches in size, and some models have an extra cushioned pocket for a tablet. External zippered compartments offer easy-to-access storage space for personal items such as passports or electronics.

Many backpacks have mesh pouches on either side that keep water bottles within easy reach, so users can stay hydrated. Some have internal pockets for water reservoirs with holes for drinking tubes. Padded sleeves for smartphones and music players have ports for headphone wires, and organizers with multiple pockets keep writing implements and small personal items in their place.

Carry Everything Comfortably With Extra-Large Backpacks
Backpacks have designs that distribute weight evenly, which reduces back and shoulder strain when carrying heavy loads. Padded back panels protect against sharp edges and feature breathable materials that help keep the wearer cool. Contoured and cushioned straps hold the bag securely, so it won't shift or slip as the user moves. Rugged backpacks intended for outdoor excursions often have built-in frames that stabilize loads, helping to keep the wearer comfortable when carrying heavy loads over long distances.

Do Extra-Large Backpacks Protect Your Gear?
In addition to padded sleeves for electronic devices, most of these products have multiple pockets in varying sizes that hold stored items snugly, which helps prevent damage from bumps and impacts. High-denier ballistic fabrics are extremely durable and shrug off minor spills. Some bags have built-in rain hoods that protect their contents from inclement weather.

How Much Do Extra-Large Backpacks Hold?
When choosing a bag, consider both the overall space it offers and the size of individual compartments. Most extra-large student backpacks hold about 2,100 cubic inches and have main compartments sized for textbooks or notebooks. Commuter bags are about the same size, but they may include features such as file sleeves that keep business documents organized. Trail packs have the highest capacities, at 3,000 to 4,000 cubic inches. They often have deep, oversized external pockets that hold camping gear and compression straps that snug the pack shell down over the load for added stability.

What Features Should Air Travelers Look for in Extra-Large Backpacks?
Some bags have features that simplify the process of getting through security checkpoints. They unzip and open flat to fit through scanners and have padded sleeves that offer quick access to stored electronic devices. Rolling bags are simple to maneuver through crowded airports, city streets, or hotel lobbies, and some of these products have removable day packs that are ideal for sightseeing trips or office visits. Many models are also sized to fit in overhead compartments on planes.
