The backpack is arguably one of mankind's greatest inventions. Think about it like this: a backpack lets you effectively carry a large amount of super heavy stuff without even using your arms. It's pretty sweet. Even though backpacks have been spotted on college campuses worldwide for decades, these new, trendy backpacks are in a class of their own with super mod embellishments and hot-right-now adornments. We've got hands-free carryalls ranging from faux leather, studded backpacks, St. Mark's Place punk to hippie-inspired patterned backpacks in the spirit of the Haight to ensure that our posh packs span from the East Coast to the West Coast.
