About Backpacks

Whether you call them backpacks, rucksacks or knapsacks, the basic backpack is an eternally useful design consisting of a pair of straps that fit over your shoulders and a cloth sack. They’ve been a popular choice for hikers, students and even armies for over a century, and we see no reason that shouldn’t continue. Whether you’re looking for a children’s backpack or backpacks for adults, you’ve come to the right place! 

Adult backpacks

Our adult backpacks can be divided into two rough groups: hiking backpacks and backpacks for work. Our range of hiking backpacks come from some of the finest names in outdoor outfitting, and have great durability and features like waterproofing. They’re too big and unwieldy to take to the office, though. That’s where our business backpacks come in. These sleek and sober backpacks are coloured in non-offensive shades like black grey, and are small enough to take on public transport.

We have some super fashionable designer backpacks as well. Each of these backpacks are in keeping with their particular fashion house’s sense of style, from the classically classy to the truly out there. Look closely, and you’ll find fantastic designer backpacks from the likes of Miss Lulu, Burberry, Kenzo and more!

While these subdued adult backpacks are perfectly fine for transporting your lunch and other nick-nacks that you need throughout the working day, they’re not the best for carrying paper files and other important documents, as your papers might get creased or scrunched up in them. An alternative is an old-fashioned briefcase. Briefcases are not only practical, they make the perfect accessory for the fashion conscious professional in the right setting.

Some backpacks in this category have a special inset pocket that’s specifically designed to hold your laptop. But sadly not everyone’s portable PC will fit inside these flaps, and you also have to think about where to store the charger and any other cables and paraphernalia you need. Rather than filling space in your new backpack with your laptop, why not consider buying a laptop bag as well?

Children’s backpacks

Backpacks are one of the most versatile and practical bags you can get your hands on, making them a popular choice for taking to school. In this category, you’ll find a number of great children’s backpacks designed for kids of all ages, from little ones just starting their education to backpacks for teenagers about to graduate from high school. 

Our children’s backpacks range includes all sorts of great kid-friendly designs. These include licenced backpacks featuring characters from your child’s favourite superhero franchises and cartoons, through to cute backpacks with illustrations, unicorns, fairies and more. Your child can pick out backpacks in their favourite colours too, from lime green and fluorescent pink to sky blue and magenta.
