The 7 Best Backpacks For College

At Cornell, I spend SO much time walking up and down the hills to campus. I want a backpack that is not only stylish, but also comfortable and holds all of my essentials for class.

I’ve rounded up some of my favorite backpacks below:

Herschel Supply Co. Settlement


This Herschel backpack is only $58, and perfect for any price range (especially since textbooks can be SO expensive). It comes in over 25 colors, including yellow, teal, and blue/orange to match your style.

Tumi Women’s Vogageur Calais Backpack Black

The Tumi Backpack is where comfort meets style. Its lightweight, durable fabric makes it perfect for the long walk to campus, and the black color makes it versatile with all of your outfits.

There is also a zippered laptop compartment to keep your computer safe & easily accessible!

I’ve been looking at this backpack for a long time and might splurge this year.

The Classic North Face Womens Classic Borealis Backpack


This is a classic bag for anyone who knows that they’re going to have a huge workload and A LOT of textbooks (engineers and pre-meds I’m looking at you). It has TWO! bottle holders on the sides – one for your water battle and one for a kombucha bottle.

Longchamp ‘Le Pliage’ Nylon Backpack

This Longchamp Backpack is made from lightweight nylon canvas, with adjustable shoulder straps and a small zip enclosure. It’s perfect for days when you’re heading to the library with just a few notebooks and a computer, or for a sleepover at your friend’s dorm.

Longchamp Le Pliage Large Bilberry


Another popular bag on campus is this large Longchamp tote back. Lots of girls carry this bag, and can be a cute alternative to a traditional backpack. Just be mindful that this bag can hurt your shoulders more than a traditional backpack would.

Nike Brasilia Training Backpack X-Large

Perfect for the sporty girl on the move! This bag can fit an extra change of clothes, sneakers, your laptop, and even has a water bottle holster on the side! Plus, the color is so bright & pretty.

Fjallraven – Kanken Laptop Bag

This is a super cute backpack that I see all the time around campus. It’s perfect for you if you’re trying to go for a more artsy vibe.
