best backpacks under 100 2019 Adidas Nike The North Face
SSENSE

There’s no way around it — from rappers to college kids — everyone needs a quality backpack. While chest-rig trends come and go, a stylish backpack is a year-round, trend-resistant investment. Thankfully, our favorite brands have been doing this for a while now, which means the options are boundless.

This however presents its own set of challenges. You’re looking for the right balance of durability, functionality, and style to get you through rain and shine. All while comfortably transporting precious cargo and elevating your ’fit. That’s a tall order for the humble backpack. In light of this, we’ve selected the very best backpacks from across the internet to help tick off all the aforementioned boxes. And what’s more, they all come in at under $100.

It wouldn’t be a backpack roundup without classics such as Dickies, The North Face, and Eastpak. We’ve also included head-turning offerings from Herschel after it gave its carry-it-all XL pack a Basquiat-themed makeover. For more polished work-to-weekend options, adidas and Nike come through with slick black options that will complement just about any ensemble.

So, without further ado, scroll through our selection of the best backpacks to buy for under $100 below.
