We’ve been easing into the concept of backpacks once again. It’s a slow moving train, but we really did them some harm in the 90′s with over saturation and awkward adolescent memories. Then we did even more bodily harm with scoliosis inducing one shouldered bags. Now, we’re not saying that a backpack is fully acceptable in an office environment, or on a daily basis, but a good rucksack like one of these will be ready for your summer adventures.

Backpack Pack It Up

TOP ROW: These three are holding in the uptown. They’re probably uncomfortable identifying themselves as rucksacks, but given the drawstring and flapped nature of the closing, they do fit the qualifications.

[Rebecca Minkoff, Dusen Dusen, Badgley Mischka]

MIDDLE ROW: These three canvas sacks should head straight to the mountains or the beach. They’re cute, but only when you’re in full adventure mode.

[Frills & Company, Ecote, Madewell]

BOTTOM ROW: These three fuse the two categories and head downtown. They’ve got a taste of native America in the practical sense.

[ASOS, Obey, Dannijo]

Now the question, which one is coming with me to Bonnaroo?
