SEEING SPOTS

Tote around a bag that’s sharper than a No. 2 pencil. Made of 100 percent recycled cotton duck, Baggu’s Navy Dot backpack features a snap-and-buckle outer flap, adjustable shoulder straps, and an interior pocket for squirreling away mash notes.

FRINGE BENEFITS

Too cool for school? Not this backpack. A marvel of Swiss engineering, the “Fringe” by Freitag combines the tough-as-nails durability of discarded tarpaulin with the road-readiness of used seat belts, which means it can take whatever you throw at it, even your former gym teacher.

WHITE HOT

Built in the U.S. of A., Keen’s Harvest III backpack makes one helluva impact. It’s derived from pre-consumer automotive air bags, which the Portland, OR company harvests locally to create its one-of-a-kind carryalls. Extra credit: It’s water-resistant, to boot.

Go ahead and call the “Kasum” by Looptworks your new BFF. Composed of 100 percent pre-consumer recycled waste, the backpack is virtually indestructible. It even includes a Transportation Security Administration-approved laptop pocket to make airport screenings a cinch.

BORN IN THE U.S.A.

You don’t need to major in geography to peg the Archival rucksack’s origins. Modeled after the traditional canoe pack, the American-made carryall comprises mostly U.S.-sourced materials, including heavyweight waxed-cotton twill and domestically tanned leather.
