Whether hitting the bike (or hike) trails, the gym, or simply the school courtyard, nothing beats the hands-free access that knapsacks can offer us. Of course we’re not recommending backpacks to all people (folks with back problems in mind), but these fun, functional bags are great for mobile, busy people who aren’t on their way to a formal dinner or a business meeting. We mean it– we don’t care if you own the $39K alligator backpack from the Olsen twins‘ head-scratching luxe label, there’s a time for cute backpacks, and then there’s time for a good ole formal briefcase. But we digress. Check out these five cute knapsacks you can get under $50 from Zappos!
Oh, and one last thing, don’t be that jerk who carries an overstuffed backpack to an overcrowded subway, please. Zappos should have a lot of other nicer, more apt bag options for that kind of thing.
