There are many reasons why backpacks are so hugely popular among adults, teenagers, and kids. One reason is there are just so many backpacks with cute and cool designs to choose from! Besides the unbeatable aesthetics, backpacks are also highly versatile — they just gobble up what you put in, they don’t discriminate what you store in them. You can pretty much bring a backpack everywhere: school, college, work, library, the park, office, and even to the cafe. Not to mention that backpacks are probably the most ergonomic of all the bag styles, and definitely one of the most spacious.
