Finding the right backpack can be a daunting task, especially when considering the endless array of options out there. A good backpack should last for years and become an essential accessory in your daily routine, regardless of what you find yourself doing or what season you're using it in. The backpacks on this list were chosen for their unique mix of functionality, durability and style. Summer holiday travels abroad or autumnal trips back to campus are equally served by any of the bags on this roster.

Within this list, expect to find cult favorites from seasons' past as well as contemporary classics that are evergreen options from some of our favorite brands. While not completely exhaustive, these are the bags that we're reaching for (or, aspiring to own, at the very least) in all four seasons. Each bag brings different qualities to the table that should suit your needs and wardrobe. At the very least, these options can (and should) inspire your search for the right bag; to start your search, scope our team's selections and similar silhouettes in the listings below each section.
