Best Skateboard Backpacks

Summer's here, and the sun is calling us outside! Whether you're hitting the park, cruising the streets, or filming your buddies' tricks, a good skate backpack is essential. It's gotta be comfy, carry all your gear, and ideally, look good while you're doing it.

Choosing the Right Backpack for You

Consider these factors when picking your perfect summer skate backpack:

  1. Budget: These backpacks range from $69.95 to $101.95, so there's a good option for every wallet.

  2. Capacity: How much stuff do you need to carry? If you're just bringing your board and some water, a smaller pack might suffice. If you're packing lunches or editing equipment, you'll need something bigger.

  3. Style: Do you want a classic look or something with a bit more style?

  4. Features: Think about the features that are most important to you, like a laptop sleeve, water bottle pockets, or a chest strap for added comfort.
