We’re excited to see women’s backpacks undergoing a revival!
While the name might bring back memories from your elementary school days, modern designs today address a different market. Everybody needs a way to transport their stuff efficiently, from photographers to busy professionals to world travelers. So why not make it easy and stylish with the best backpack?
When it comes to ladies’ backpacks, the size is important. Models designed for women’s anatomy tend to be lighter, smaller, and wider at the shoulders. Don’t let gender differences get in the way of your choices. If you love a unisex or male-specific backpack, then go for it!
The ideal backpack for women balances style and function. It should be practical and stylish but still, look great. It’s important to have a durable backpack. It would be best if you also looked for features that make life easier, such as trolley sleeves, organizational pockets, and expansion. While you can choose a striking piece that is sure to make a statement, it’s unnecessary. However, a cleaner design will allow for greater flexibility.
Here’s a list of our top picks for ladies’ backpacks in 2018. These fashionable, feminine styles are perfect for you, whether you’re looking for a stylish day bag to take to work or explore the city, a rucksack that can be used to travel around the globe, or if you want to pack a backpack that can double as sling-back luggage.
