I really like the collection of Brooklyn Backpacks with laptop sleeve from California indie biz, Rareform They’re made from upcycled billboards (yay, eco-friendly!) with typography and graphics that give them an edgy look and feel, and ensuring no two are the same.
While they’re great as backpacks for older kids or adults with their own sense of style, I think they’d make a fantastic diaper bag alternative for dads — or for moms who want something a little more funky than floral.
Since the bags are made from billboard vinyl with a waterproof inner lining, they can stand up to thunderstorms and hail. So I’m going to make the leap that they can easily survive the aftermath of a day out with a toddler too.
Browse the selection of Brooklyn Backpacks at the Rareform website, with a no-questions-asked 30-day return policy (with a few exceptions). There are tons of styles but if you see one you love, grab it; they really are one-of-a-kind.
