So, yes, we declared Eastpak the new Fjällräven not so long ago, but that doesn’t mean that Fjällräven is chopped liver. And if you still haven’t gotten around to doing your back-to-school shopping, might we suggest this fire-engine-red offering from the culty Swedish backpack line? It has a handsome folding top, as well as a front zip pocket with a padded bottom. Plus: The chiropractor we recently spoke to who gave us backpack-buying tips told us that smallness is key, as well as padded shoulder straps; this backpack is relatively petite and has padded, adjustable straps. And it’s currently 30 percent off.
