From books, readings, school supplies, chargers, and a hundred tiny things we never really use on a daily basis, our school bags are what keep us from being eaten up alive by the literal and figurative baggage brought about by college. We might as well say that our bags are virtual extensions of ourselves.
Choosing the right school bag, therefore, is more crucial to our academic well-being than we are led to believe. And while we're big fans of backpacks ourselves, they're not always the most practical choice for school. They can get too uncomfy for students with back problems, and they're not the most ideal bag style if you commute on a daily basis (Imagine keeping the line long at the MRT station because you still have to grab your backpack from behind and unzip it for bag check). But hey, buhay mo 'yan. It's really up to you to decide, but we're just gonna drop some alternatives in case you want to try something other than everyone's go-to knapsacks:
