The word backpack might bring back childhood memories of Jansport and Eastpak, but they've actually quite hot right now. They've recently appeared on runways (Louis Vuitton, D&G, etc) and even the red carpet. A few months ago Mary-Kate Olsen sporting a Pendleton backpack at a restaurant grand opening in NYC.

In my search for practical, yet stylish bags, I looked for backpacks big enough to hold a laptop (and a book or two) and grown-up enough to potentially take to the office. And I know school is expensive, so I kept price point in mind.
Baggu Canvas Backpack $28.00 + $4 shipping
Matt & Nat, $123 + free shipping
David King Convertible Laptop Backpack, $132.99 + free shipping
Readers, those are my back to school picks. What would you recommend?
