Another school year is winding to a close, meaning that it's nearly time to start the back-to-school shopping process all over again. It seems like no matter how old the kids are and what supplies are on their lists, nothing is ever as important as THE BACKPACK. Part utilitarian and part fashion statement, a backpack is the most agonized over purchase of the school year. With that in mind, I've put together a list of backpacks that are sure to be winners with students everywhere.
