Junior Einsteins, skaters and fashionistas all have one thing in common: Every day, they've got to haul homework, soccer gear or science projects to and from school. Since it's a constant companion, it makes sense that the ubiquitous backpack, tote or satchel should suit your student's distinctive style.
Sidewalk surfers can carry their boards onto campus ‑- where ollies and kickflips are appropriately verboten ‑ with this skateboard backpack, which also sports a notebook-computer compartment and separate detachable cases for a cell phone, CDs and a CD player. Perfect for half-pints who shred the half-pipe. Zitelli Z-One Skateboard Backpack, $58.50 at BagsforMe.com.
