The best backpacks for fall

Best Backpacks

Top row:

Sequin Backpack in Gold Chevron, Pottery Barn Teen, $79
If you have a tween in the house, be prepared for a lot of high-pitched screams when you show her this glittery, gold and black chevron backpack. Best backpack ever? How about best mom ever?

Girls Glittery Backpack, Old Navy, $15 (on sale)
For a backpack that has a lot of glitter, but at a fraction of the price (under $20!), this version from Old Navy is a hit. Also available in blue, it will have a big impact for your girl who loves everything sparkle.

Middle row:

Tucker & Tate Print Backpack, Nordstrom, $38
One of our favorite picks for the best backpacks for fall, this Tucker & Tate striped backpack hits major style points, especially for girls who are all about color and pattern for back-to-school.

Camo Owl Backpack, GAP, $35
Animal backpacks are always a hit and this version that combines a discreet owl with super cool camouflage will catch his eye for back-to-school.

Kids’ Backpack, Garnet Hill, $45
Garnet Hill makes some of the best backpacks in the kid market — they are tried and true with features and pockets that really think about how kids use their packs at school. All backpacks at Garnet Hill are also available in smaller sizes for littler kids.

Star Wars R2-D2 Backpack, Nordstrom, $42
You don’t have to be a huge Star Wars fan to think this backpack is cool. While it won’t give sage advice like the real R2-D2, it will keep all of his school accessories contained for the trek to school and back.

Bottom row:

Colton Backpack, Pottery Barn Kids, $55
For kiddos who think the best backpacks are those that are a little more chill, Pottery Barn Kids has great options. The Colton Backpack is simple, but cool and is available with and without the monogram and logo.

There & Backpack, Hanna Andersson, $36 (on sale)
Hanna Andersson takes back-to-school to the old school with their selection of striped backpacks this year. Available in a few different color combinations, for both boys and girls, these are a fan favorite.

Zoo Packs Little Kid Backpack, Skip Hop, $20
We fell instantly in love with this cool and cute hedgehog from Skip Hop’s Zoo Packs collection, but there are so many animals available, in both backpacks and lunch packs, that they are sure to have your kiddo’s favorite, too.

Kitty Cat Backpack, GAP, $35
Meow! This sweet little kitty backpack from GAP is the cutest one we’ve seen this year. She is soft and adorable and small enough for your little kitten to take to preschool or school this year.
