These Are the Backpacks You’re Looking For

As a proud member of the Rebel Legion (and self-proclaimed backpack-geek), I’m always on the lookout for the coolest and most affordable Rebel attire to add to my collection.  I found the backpack I was looking for in the Rebel Alliance Icon backpack. Brought to us by Bioworld Merchandising and sold by Big Bad Toys, the Rebel Alliance Icon backpack is an officially-licensed Star Wars product.

One of the things I really like about the Rebel Alliance Icon backpack is the authentic design. It looks like something a Rebel pilot would carry into his X-wing fighter. Of course, if you’re not a pilot for the rebellion, it would also look great with jeans and a T-shirt or the Rogue Squadron tunic top by Her Universe.

Coming in at 18-inches by 11.5-inches, this bag has three main pockets to help keep you organized.

The medium-sized front pocket is perfect for a smaller tablet, like a Kindle, or a note pad. Two smaller pockets on the front are ideal for keys and small change. One larger main compartment will fit pretty much anything you want, within reason. There is also one skinny side pocket where you can store a larger tablet, such as an iPad, Surface tablet, or note pad.

A major plus for anyone carrying a heavy load: the padded straps and cushy back panel (emblazoned with an orange and white Rebel alliance logo).

Other backpack styles include the Galactic Empire, Stormtrooper, R2-D2, and Mandalorian warriorThe R2-D2 backpack is especially cute because it comes with a hoodie, allowing “everyday cosplay”. Pre-orders are open with deliveries expected in August, in time for school (or academy) to start. Prices range from $54.99 to $59.99. Check out the gallery below to see all the designs available!
