Backpacks are not only for school, are not only available in nylon, and are not for techies. We have had a lot of request for backpacks amongst our female customers for the reason that it is a hand-free handbag option. Great as a cabin-carrier for air-travellers or a weekend carry-all, it has also become the go-to handbag for work - carrying your purses and laptops with it.
Leather backpacks are usually smaller in sizes than those in synthetic fabric for reasons of weight. They are also a lot more sophisticated and versatile as a travel companion fulfilling itself as a functional carrier and also a formal bag in restaurants and clubs with smart to formal dress code requirements.
