8 Fashion-Friendly Backpacks You Won’t Mind Toting Around Town

It's safe to say that we've graduated from our days of monogrammed Jansport backpacks. Practical as they were, there's something about those sturdy vinyl turtle-shells that didn't quite scream 'chic'. However, the newest crop of knapsacks provide a bit of hands-free style that are easy on both the shoulders and eyes. From the supple leather backpacks that'll last you 'til kingdom come, to the timely Pendleton sacks that pack quite a punch, here are eight of our favorite backpacks that'll give you some style cred without upsetting your chiropractor.
