Get your kids ready for the school year with school backpacks and bookbags to carry all their school supplies.



Back-to-school backpacks for all ages



We offer a range of backpacks for everything from middle school to high school to college. We like to keep things comfortable, so you or your kid can carry books and supplies without feeling weighed down. Our padded shoulder straps and breathable back panel are designed for maximum comfort. Many of our styles, like Jester, Borealis, or Recon, come in a unisex or a narrower women's style, so you can pick the ideal fit for you. Plus, you can grasp a shoulder tote bag style or opt for a rolling backpack to take the pressure off. Our trending bags have plenty of space for you to pack your supplies, lunch box, and more. Plus, they come in fun patterns, like camo or leopard print, and brilliant colors.



The North Face best backpack features



Store it all with a combination of a roomy main compartment, water bottle pocket, and various side pockets to keep things organized. Looking for a laptop backpack? We've got laptop compartments that can fit up to a 17-inch laptop and keep it protected on a walk across campus. Our Kaban Charge Backpack even has a USB charging port, so you know you've got power for your devices. Get the most comfortable fit with adjustable straps and sternum straps to distribute your load. With a water-resistant exterior, many of our packs will stand up to rain to keep your things protected when it's time to pull out the raincoat. You can even swap out school supplies for bestsellers like our men's athletic tops or women's leggings and use your school bag as a long-lasting travel backpack.



What is a good bag for school?



Choose based on your needs for school! Grab a kids' backpack that's great for elementary school or middle school. They'll have plenty of space for their lunch bag and a school project, but not so much they'll get weighed down. For older kids, a classic backpack is a great fit. Look for one with a laptop sleeve to protect up to a 17-in laptop for their day. Leave the mini backpacks for a daypack; grab a school bag with plenty of room for the school essentials.
