Holidays are coming to a close and you may not have realized it yet but the university year begins next week.
While you're enjoying O-week festivities, don't forget to get yourself organized for the year ahead. That includes investing in a reliable backpack that's just right for you.
In the past you may not have given much thought to your backpack. A backpack, however, is great for organization and is one of the best ways to carry books and supplies because the weight is evenly spread across some of the strongest muscles in your body.
Picking the best backpack comes down to a number of features and modern backpacks are constantly trying to fit as many features into one backpack as humanly possible.
I'm not going to lie to you though, style and look is obviously very important as well because you want to make sure the other kids at school can see all the thought and money you've poured into such a practical investment.
So to help you make the right decision this year, here is a list of our top five backpacks available at Culture Kings.
Rains Field Bag The Field Bag is Rains' take on a classic and practical daypack. It may look minimal and simplistic on the outside, but on the inside there is a padded laptop pocket for safe store of a laptop up to 15 inches. The Field Bag also has padded shoulder straps for added comfort and comes in black or smoke (pictured).
Incase City Compact Backpack Another modern, minimalistic backpack is the Incase City Compact Backpack. As well as padded shoulder straps, the City Compact Backpack also has a laptop compartment that is lined with faux-fur fleece. In addition to this there is also a fleece-lined smartphone pocket and quick-stash pockets for easy storage. This bag comes in black, heather and grey (pictured) and dark khaki.
Little America Backpack Herschel's Little America Backpack is one of their best selling styles inspired by mountaineering. This bag has loads of room for just about anything. Not only does it also include a fleece-lined laptop sleeve, there is also an internal media pocket. The main compartment has cinch top closure for extra room and there is also ventilated air-mesh back padding and contoured shoulder straps for comfort and use. The Little America Backpack is available in navy (pictured), black and grey.
Carré Voyageurs Backpack Carré upped the anti on backpacks with the release of their Voyageurs Backpack that allows you to charge your phone on the go. Included in the Voyageurs Backpack is a 10,000mAh power pack that can hold over five full phone charges before needing to be reconnected to a power supply. This backpack also has a laptop pocket on the inside but it steps above it's competitors because of it's style and design. Featuring a camouflage print lining, the Voyageurs Backpack has the quote: "a revolution can be neither made nor stopped," by Napoleon Bonaparte underneath the front facing pocket. It comes in stone, black, navy and grey.
XD Design Bobby Anti-Theft Backpack The Bobby Backpack is one of those bags that has simply just thought of everything. Starting with their invisible zipper, the Bobby is also cut proof and water resistant with anti-sweat and air permeability. The Bobby Backpack also has an external charging port for you to connect a power bank and charge your mobile device (power bank not included). The Bobby backpack is not only secure and safe for all your belongings, it is also practical. There are secret pockets in the sides and back of the backpack to keep small valuables and a hidden card pocket on the front strap for easy access. The humanized design fits everything from your Notebook, iPad, stationary items, clothes, thermos bottle, powerbank, headphones and more. The Bobby is also designed to feel lighter because the weight is leaning closely to the back. With safety in mind, there are also illuminant bars on the back and sides of the backpack to ensure safe night travels.
