The Charlie Backpack from Perry Mackin
If you're looking for something streamlined with a retro knapsack vibe and fits those little backs just right (but can still hold all that stuff) may we suggest the Charlie Backpack from Perry Mackin? It comes in eight fun colors including mustard, pink, aqua, blue and metallic gold, has two exterior water bottle pockets, a front zipper storage pocket and two interior pockets, and a top zipper with magnetic strap closures. It's also made from water-resistant polyester and is totally wipeable inside. Confession: one of our editor's got one to use as her daily commute bag! It actually holds a 13" laptop just right.
