Today’s students carry a ton of stuff everywhere — a laptop, textbooks, tablet, water bottles, pens, charging cables, gym clothes, you get the idea. A good laptop backpack is the essential companion for every young academic. In addition, the right one is an extension of your personality and style. When shopping for one, look for a sturdy, water-resistant build that offers protection against the elements. You’ll also want adjustable shoulder straps, a properly ventilated back and plenty of compartments. Some backpacks offer thoughtful features such as reflective accents for night safety and TSA-compliant designs, and some come with lifetime warrantys. If you’re looking for the best knapsack for your student,
We love Rickshaw's Sutro Backpack for its elegantly simple design. It features a 15-inch laptop sleeve, and is available in Steel, Midnight, Coffee and Moss. Your favorite student can travel light or stuff all your belongings in the Sutro, thanks to its expandable barrel. An organizational front pocket helps him keep track of loose items such as pens or notepads, while padded straps with a sternum clasp make sure the backpack is fit well.
