Back to school is the perfect time to be totally prepared with a backpack that will store all your belongings and express your personality. Here at Spencer’s, our school backpacks come with all the best features to take you through your school day and still look stylish.

Before we tell you about what makes our Spencer’s backpacks unique, first we wanted to share some important information about how to shop for a backpack.

What to look for when buying a backpack

You might think that any old bag will work for carrying your books, but there are important advantages to having a school backpack specifically designed for that purpose. For one thing, you want to protect your back. You want to be able to focus on your classes, sports and other activities, not on twinges in your muscles. A good backpack will distribute the weight evenly across your back, saving you from tilting to one side the way a shoulder bag would.

You also want to make sure your backpack has enough pockets to keep you organized, so you don’t waste time looking for a pencil or notebook. The right backpack will save you time, because you can store everything easily, rather than having all your belongings jumbled together. Make sure your backpack suits your unique needs. If you carry a laptop with you, it should have a laptop sleeve to protect it. If you always bring a water bottle to stay hydrated, your backpack should have a separate pocket for it so there’s no chance of it spilling.

Types of backpacks

There are many different types of backpacks for you to choose from, depending on your needs, how much you’re carrying, and how active you are. If your backpack is getting tossed around from home to car to locker to class, you might want to look at a sturdier option like a built-up backpack.

Here at Spencer’s, we want to make sure you have just the right backpack, whether you’re heading off to middle school, high school or college. Some of you may have extra equipment and items you need so you’ll want an extra sturdy backpack, while others are looking for elements like convertible backpacks that can change into a duffel or backpack purse.

Built Up Backpacks

Our built-up backpacks were designed for those who are active and have a lot of gear to carry. They’re all fully lined and feature a breathable, padded back panel plus two water bottle holders. They also have a protective laptop sleeve, multiple inside pockets and adjustable padded straps. These special school backpacks are designed with your comfort and convenience in mind.

Reversible Backpacks

When is a backpack more than a backpack? When it’s reversible! These styles let you essentially have two backpack looks in one. If you want to switch things up, you can just reverse the design any time you want. You get double the style, so you’re never bored.

Convertible Backpacks

Convertible backpacks are the ultimate convenience because they can change from a school backpack to a duffel bag, like our Harley Quinn Birds of Prey backpack, or backpack purse, like our Dickies cheetah convertible backpack, easily. When you’re done going from class to class and are heading out with friends or to other events, you can simply switch up the look of your backpack and you’ve got a stylish bag that’ll hold everything you need.

Fashion Backpacks

Fashion backpacks are the perfect way to show off your personal style. Why be basic when you can be colorful? Our fashion backpacks come in a wide range of colors and styles, with enhancements like bold colors, 3D elements, and funny graphics to really make you stand out in the hallways. Make everyone laugh with a Steven Rhodes backpack or stand out with a rainbow striped backpack. Or if you’re looking for a different type of sturdy backpack that can hold everything, we also have a black utility backpack.

These are just some of the wide range of college backpacks, high school backpacks, and backpacks for kids you’ll find on our website. Whether you’re looking for a Fortnite backpack, an anime backpack, a built up backpack or any other kind, we have plenty of options.

If you’ve been wondering where to buy a backpack for the 2020 back to school season, Spencer’s has cool backpacks in every type of style for men and women.
