Everyone needs a good backpack, not only for school but for everyday life. I always have to have a mini bag for my essentials. I have never been one to use a purse, so when mini backpacks became trendy I couldn’t have been happier. To me, a purse doesn’t even compare to having a backpack, you’re completely hands free without anything inhibiting you. I try to carry as little as possible; my phone, a charger, my I.D., my debit card, a water bottle and a book, so a small bag is perfect for me. Durability in a backpack is the most important aspect in choosing a bag. I would rather pay a bit more for a backpack and have it last a for a substantial period of time instead of buying a cheap one and having it just fall apart immediately. When I purchase a new bag I have the intention of using it everyday and not having to worry about being careful with it, often after a long day I’ll just throw it in a corner on the floor. Exceptional quality, is also very important when choosing a school bag because you’ll be using it everyday to carry heavy books. In the past I’ve had a backpack break after only a few months of using it for school, which is why I am so picky with the bags I buy now. My two favorite brands for backpacks right now are Herschel and Fjällräven, both companies make bags that fit my simple yet important criteria: be made to last and have a cool versatile look. For everyday, I’m obsessed with the Herschel Supply Co. Nova Small Backpack and the Fjällräven Re-Kånken Mini Backpack.
I love how both these bags are small enough to take everywhere but spacious enough to fit all the basics. The Herschel Supply backpack is the perfect pink; it’s different than a basic black but is still a soft enough color to be paired with almost anything. The Kånken mini is very structured, an innovative design seen infrequently in backpacks. Fjällräven backpacks look better with age, making it one of the best backpack brands! Both these brands also carry an array of standard sized backpacks, which are great for school, traveling or just daily life if you need something bigger than a mini bag. I gravitate toward basic items that can be used all the time without clashing with my outfits, thats why my go to standard sized bag is the Fjällräven Foldsack No.1 Backpack in Deep Blue.
Again durability is so important, which is why both these brands are so perfect, you don’t have to sacrifice quality for a great look.
