adults + backpacks


What are your thoughts on adults wearing backpacks?
A girlfriend recently scoffed* at mine (above, a gift from the mister) and 
said backpacks should be exclusively worn by students/children. 
I still love the convenience of a pack, especially for bike riding, 
and they're still cute in my mind. What do you think?

*Scoffed with love, of course.

  3. i just had this conversation with a friend recently and our verdict was, you can be a grown up and wear a backpack, but it has to be a grownup backpack. grownup backpacks are generally made of leather. they definitely do not feature any characters. you also have to trade in your hoodie for a blazer.

    with that being said, if you'd like to lead a grown up backpack revolution and overturn the whole system, i'd be down.
