College leather school backpack to meet specific criteria. They have to be large enough to safely fit a laptop, books, lunch, a water bottle, snacks, your phone, keys, a change of clothes, your Frisbee, and err… other stuff. Weatherproofing is also ideal, unless you’re headed to SoCal, which doesn’t have weather. Of course, a nice balance of comfort and style is appreciated, as well.
But most of all, college backpacks have to be built to withstand at least four years of abuse. Daily treks to and from class do damage over time. So can bike commutes, camping trips, flights home, accidental frat parties, vengeful boyfriends and/or girlfriends, and your disgusting roommate.
Leather makes the perfect alternative to the everyday polyester/nylon book bags that most of us had as a kid. Leather is renowned for its quality and durability, as well as its timeless style. Being a strong and durable material provides better protection for your school/college essentials – especially for those that carry a laptop to college.
Finding the right backpack for school or college can be a frustrating task. Leather? Canvas? Nylon? How many pockets? Will it fit my laptop? Books? Stationary holder? You want a backpack that not everyone is wearing, but strikes the perfect balance between stylish, practical and comfortable – after all, you’ll be wearing it at least 5 days a week!
Backpacks come in all sizes, colours and fabrics, and many can be personalized/monogrammed – often making the choice all that more overwhelming. You want to choose something durable with enough space and compartments to organize all your school or college essentials.
Using non-chemically treated full-grain leather, as used by MAHI Leather, means that every hide is unique – each telling its own story via its individual markings, characteristics and blemishes. For extra uniqueness – since leather is a natural, organic material, its colour and characteristics will continue developing with time and use – truly making each bag beautifully unique.
When compared to shoulder bags, such as totes or across-the-body bags (i.e. messengers, satchels, holdalls, duffels), backpacks are better for the back and abdominal muscles, since the weight of the bag is evenly distributed across both shoulders. It is still important to not over-pack your rucksack and ensure the straps are adjusted to a comfortable position to further reduce your risk of back pain.
