Best College Backpacks: Gifts for Scholars

In college, a backpack becomes more than just something you use to carry books to class. It is where you hide your mid-day snacks, stash your laptop and iPad, store change of clothes for the gym, and compile your everyday essentials.

A college backpack must be both sturdy and comfortable, it should help you stay organized, and, above all else, make you feel fashionable and put together.
