5 Stylish Backpacks for All Your Carrying Needs

backpacks

Hey guys, backpacks aren’t just for school anymore. They are the new accessory to have. No more slumping to the side like you would with a shoulder bag. Plus, you’ll have your hands free and you can use them for a weekend away, a day at the ballpark, for your everyday workbag — or like NBA players Russell Westbrook and Kevin Durant — at a post-game press conference. Below (Pictured above, clockwise, L-R) are The Manual’s backpack picks.
