The backpacks below are the perfect combo of durable, fashionable and versatile enough to take them throughout all the crazy adventures this new school year brings. FlipGivers can find backpacks in a variety of colors and styles from top brands such as Under Armour, Parkland, Jansport, and more.



Our top pick for elementary students is the Bayside backpack from Parkland. It’s polyester exterior is 100% recycled. and has a water bottle pocket, front zip pocket and internal divider to ensure everything is secure and organized. It also comes in 34 different colors and motifs, so we guarantee you’ll find something that your kid will love. Bonus, Parkland also has the best collections of lunch bags that are equally adorable and practical. 


Middle School

Middle school is without a doubt when the rebel hearts emerge and they want to make more of a statement with their backpacks. And it’s not for nothing that Jansport backpacks are a #1 best-seller at Amazon, it’s a middle school favorite! They are lightweight, but it’s built to handle pretty much anything. If you are looking for something simple, cool and durable: We highly recommend the Jansport SuperBreak Backpack. 


High School 

When high school hits, there is more need for more practical and versatile options. Our top favorite is the Under Armour Hustle 4.0 backpack. It is highly water-resistant, comes with a laptop sleeve and has compartments for all types of things (it even has a laundry pocket!). Plus, it comes in a stylish and neutral design that your teenager will love (and in 21 options!).



College students like sleek design, timeless brands and lots of compartments to store laptops, books, and daily essentials. If your kid is looking for a more fashionable option, we love everything Matt & Nat. On the functional side, Herschel backpacks are still our go-to options.
