Leather backpack purses are back on trend this year. From pop divas to fashionistas, some of the most stylish women have been spotted sporting leather sling bags as well as 1990s style small backpacks. And who can blame them–leather backpack purses offer a sophisticated, everyday alternative to the schoolhouse favorite while providing ample space and easy organization for everything from essentials to high-tech electronics. Plus, a versatile backpack purse keeps hands free from holding a bag (or constantly pushing it back into place). What’s not to love?
With styles ranging from cute to rugged, practical to posh, you may be struggling to find the perfect bag to complement your daily style. If you are, don’t worry. Here are 10 of the best leather backpack purses on the market right now.
10. Leather Backpack Purse Mid Size & Backpack wearing Multiple Organizer Pockets
This neutral colored, slightly rugged-looking pack has a unique strap system that lets you choose whether to use the pack as a sling bag or backpack. Just zip the straps together for a sling bag or unzip the strap to convert the bag to a backpack. The straps also are fully adjustable for your height. The bag’s multiple pockets and built-in card slots make organization simple, and the bag itself is large enough to hold your tablet or a water bottle without issue. At less than $30, this adjustable bag is a great deal.
9. Le Donne Leather U Zip Mid Size Backpack/Purse
This Colombian leather bag from Le Donne is more expensive than the #10 bag on the list, but its perfect size and handbag styling set this bag apart.
