Find the perfect backpack for every day of the week at Target. You can choose from kids’ backpacks for school, super-sturdy backpacks for college, convenient rolling backpacks for travel and hydration packs for weekend day hikes and bike rides.

Our backpacks for kids come in bright colors and cool designs for every kind of student from K–12. They’re comfy to carry and made to last with tough fabrics, sturdy zippers and strong stitching. And they’ll keep up with your kids, whether they’re running to the bus, swinging them around on the playground or stuffing them with books, a lunchbox and a surprise for show-and-tell. Choose from backpacks that feature their favorite characters, animal and camo prints, polka dots, plaids, solids, stripes and much more.

Target has great backpacks for college students and adults, too. They sport large compartments that can hold books, binders, lunch bags, gym clothes, travel clothes, toiletries and more. You can find backpacks with built-in sleeves for laptops and tablets. They also have front organizer pockets for keeping essentials handy, and some even have side water-bottle pockets.

Lucky for you, Target carries Jansport backpacks with ergonomic shoulder straps, padded back panels and every other convenience you want—plus the hottest styles to fit your look. Pack up and go with the best backpacks at Target. If a backpack’s not your style, check out our trendy messenger bags for everyday use or our chic selection of carry-on bags for travel.
