These Are the Best Backpacks for Back to School

The backbone of any back to school kit is the backpack. Here are some of our favorite picks from Under Armour that will last all year.



Hard to believe it is that time of year again — the point in August when you need to face the reality that school is around the corner. No matter if it’s your last semester or your little one headed into elementary school, you have some shopping to do. And no matter what pencils, notebooks and calculators you end up with, the piece that matters most is how you will haul everything you need to and from the classroom. The backbone of your back to school kit is the backpack, and here are some of our favorite picks from our friends over at Under Armour that won’t let you down all school year.

UA Hustle


The UA Hustle is perfect for the active renaissance student who needs to hit the field and the library. The Hustle has a soft lined sleeve to protect your laptop, a large gusseted shoe or laundry compartment and two water-repellent front pockets to keep your stuff safe so you can go anywhere. It is also made using Under Armour’s Storm technology which is highly water-resistant and features extra comfy shoulder straps.

UA Scrimmage 2.0


First off, what an amazing name. It just makes you think of a couple of school kids throwing down their backpacks to form goal posts and kicking a ball around their makeshift pitch. The Scrimmage 2.0 could certainly take the abuse of being a makeshift goal post or anything else a kid could put it through with its UA Storm technology and hardwearing exterior. It also has room for a laptop and comes in a camouflage that will be sure to stand out.

UA Recruit 2.0


The biggest bag on the list — coming in at 13″ wide — The UA Recruit can carry it all for you. And with exterior compression straps, you can bring it in a bit if you have a light load that day. A laptop sleeve, two side bottle compartments and a water-repellent front valuables pocket keep you on track. In fact, the entire bag features a water-resistant finish so that water just rolls off. Lastly, a tough abrasion-resistant bottom panel rounds out the UA Recruit.
