Is it a backpack or is it a bag? We don't know, and we don't care. Instead of the traditional backpack style, this bag is worn cross body. You can't fit in quite as much as you can with a standard backpack, but frankly, this is much more comfortable to wear. There's also a super convenient front pocket where you can keep your phone or wallet easily accessible.

Sure, you have a research paper to write and a midterm chemistry test to study for, but that doesn't mean you can't have some fun in the process. If you're always making everyone laugh, you definitely need a backpack like this. This baby has an interior pocket that can fit a laptop up to 15 inches snugly, as well as a padded nylon back and bottom.

Though it's brand-new, this faux leather backpack has a worn, vintage vibe to it. It's a bit slimmer than your average backpack, but there's still plenty of room for your laptop and a few books in there. The brushed-gold hardware accents are fab and help make this knapsack look a bit more sophisticated.

Let's "taco 'bout" how adorable this backpack is, OK? If Taco Tuesday is pretty much every single day in your world, why not share your love with everyone? The front pocket is, of course, a little, stuffed taco. But there's also plenty of room inside for all of your daily essentials.

If you're always ready for a road trip or have "weekend getaway" on your calendar more times than you can count, this backpack/luggage hybrid has your name all over it.
