·4 min read

With classes going back to IRL this fall, your back-to-school shopping list is probably miles long. One thing you absolutely shouldn't forget? One of the best backpacks on Amazon to make sure you can carry your laptop and school supplies from class to class effortlessly.

Although often looked over, backpacks are an accessory that you'll carry with you practically every day during the school year. A backpack houses all your necessary supplies and helps you make it through the crowded hallway and campus shuffle without losing (or breaking) anything or hurting your back, which is why choosing one of the one should be your top priority. Below, we have rounded up some of the best backpacks on Amazon to make your quest for the perfect one a little bit easier.

Best Backpacks for Laptops

Regardless of whether you're in college or high school, never underestimate the importance of carrying your laptop safely. Seriously, just think about how many times you've almost accidentally dropped your it or maybe even actually dropped it. With the amount of money you'll have to spend to replace it, your best bet is to invest in a backpack that will protect it through the hustle and bustle of busy hallways. This Herschel backpack, for instance, looks cute but also has a 13" laptop sleeve built inside to make sure your precious cargo is as safe as possible. The same goes for the Marc Jacobs backpack, which features a laptop pouch inside.

Each bag has ample space with different section dividers to store your books, folders, laptop or tablet PC, and more. One of our favorites is this Jansport backpack, which has padded shoulders and back handles to make it feel more comfortable when you carry it around.
