Backpack or Messenger for School/College?

Backpack or Messenger for School/College?29 Products

I know choosing the right bag for school/college can be a daunting task - so well done for narrowing your choices down to just backpack or messenger! First question to ask is: What do you normally carry in your bag? - Books, stationary, possibly a laptop, snacks etc.? Many bags offer separate pockets and compartments to keep your belongings organized, which can be a life-saver at the best of times! 

Backpacks are the obvious go-to choice for carrying your stuff around school or college. It is the most common schoolbag, and you've most likely carried one in your lifetime. They're comfy, practical, kind for your back (when carried on both shoulders) and come in a wide range of styles, fabrics and colours!

For something a little different, messengers ooze just a little bit more style than backpacks. Messengers and satchels are great for transporting your belongings with minimal hassle! Often worn on one side, or against your lower back, it is easy to reach your essentials in one swift motion when you need to! They're also great for travelling on busy transport and even on your bicycle; for they were commonly used by couriers, postal workers and messengers in the past!

Have a look at our collection of both backpacks and messenger satchels below to see which one you're swaying more towards!
