The Best Backpacks For Back To School

The Best Backpacks for Back To School

PRODUCTS| 24.06.2021

Whether you’re a student, in school, commuting to work or embarking on a last-minute weekend getaway, everyone needs a backpack to keep their valuables safe, portable, and most importantly, look extremely stylish.
It’s the number one must-have item for back-to-school or work; a new backpack is more than just a solution for carrying your personal possessions about; it signifies a fresh start. There’s no better way to add a bit of excitement to the ever-so daunting prospect of heading back to school or work after a joyous, warm summer than kitting yourself out in a brand-new cool backpack.

That’s why choosing the right one for you should be your top priority. There are so many options and lots to consider. Are you after something that’s water-resistant? Do you need a laptop sleeve? How about a water bottle holder? Mesh pockets or a front pocket? Not to mention plenty of room to store your snacks, school supplies or gym kit. At Dickies we know how important it is for products to look as good as they function, and so we’ve curated a selection of our best new rucksacks to start the school year right. There’s an option for any type of personality and style.

Keep It Classic.

Sometimes simple is key. Our Chickaloon backpack with adjustable shoulder straps is the perfect size to fit all your essentials. Planner? Check. Tablet? Check. Casual and cool? Check. Its sleek silhouette and classic colourway mean it’ll go with absolutely anything, and if your someone who tends to wear their backpack to the max, its durable fabric means it will withstand everyday wear and tear.

 

Function and Style.

If you like your backpack to work a little harder, our Lisbon style could be the answer. Made from our durable 8.5 oz poly/cotton twill, this backpack features a laptop sleeve for protecting your tech. There are more cool compartments, including a water bottle pocket. Comfort is not overlooked either; padded straps mean that long journeys carry heavy books are a thing of the past. There's also a D-ring clip inside the front pocket for securing your keys, and finally, super cool Dickies branded lining. Available in black, lilac grey and khaki, the Lisbon is a backpack that will keep up with the busiest of schedules.

 

Add a Pouch.

Sometimes carrying small valuable items in a big backpack on your back is not the most convenient. You might need easy, immediate access to things like your wallet or phone. Look no further than our Grasston bag. A utility essential, the Grasston is a flat pouch made from durable ripstop fabric. The branded shoulder strap is adjustable to emphasise functionality and versatility, and we’ve included a corner zip for easy access. There’s also a front pocket with Velcro closure and a hidden back pocket for extra valuable possessions. Available in black, biking red and military green.

 

Think About Your Commute.

Do you use a skateboard to travel to work or school? If so, you might need a backpack or school bag that can comfortably fit your stuff and safely carry your skateboard when you’re not using it—introducing the Duck Canvas Backpack Plus. Ample and super hardwearing, this backpack has adjustable carrying tapes at the front, ideal for securing your board. We've also been sure to add a laptop sleeve, mesh bottle holders at the side and an additional zip pocket at the top. This bag really is the answer to all your backpack needs. If you like your accessories to match, our Duck Canvas Pencil Case is the ideal companion to our Duck Canvas Backpack. Made from the same 12 oz Duck Canvas and available in black and duck brown, your pencils will thank you later.

Get your accessories right, back to school or back to work, need not be daunting. It’s time to start thinking about the best style for you. Practical and long-lasting, plus optimum function and style, the checklist for finding a great bag can be extensive but not out of reach. Take your time, try out a few at home, and most of all, enjoy the rest of your care-free summer holidays before it's time to go back to school or work. You deserve it!
