Backpacks—an enduring symbol of youth and wanderlust—have certainly come a long way. What was once relegated to the outdoors have become a staple on college campuses, weekend road trips and urban excursions; making it the go-to choice for the practical but fashion-savvy.
Noticeably, backpacks have re-emerged as the vanguard of sensible style— particularly for students. It offers the staid dependability of a book bag, the durability of a rucksack, the stylish appeal of a satchel—modernized and stylized to become a must-have for coeds.
Backpacks represent escape and practicality—in equal parts—and it’s likely why, despite evolving trends, it’s been recently seen on the backs of anyone who understands that style can in fact be fused with substance. The backpack seems to be experiencing a cultural reemergence of sorts, one that High Sierra is at the forefront of.
Defined by clean lines, ergonomic design, smart and efficient use of space, as well as durability, the brand has built a collection of backpacks fit for the demands of today’s busy student, but still perfect for all the adventures that lie ahead. And you can’t really expect anything less from a brand whose heritage is anchored on creating backpacks built to withstand the wear and tear of the great outdoors.
Through the years, as the brand continued to evolve—it took its legacy of sturdiness and transformed it into sleek, urban appropriate packs by virtue of aesthetics and design. Today, alongside its trusty collection of outdoor packs, High Sierra comes in a selection of designs and colors—so many that you can choose one depending on your personality and preference.
