When it comes to college and university life, a reliable and spacious bag is an absolute must. But for fashion-conscious students, having a bag that is as stylish as it is practical is of equal importance.

At Madlug, we’ve created a range of backpacks that not only offer ample space for laptops, textbooks, stationery, and other daily essentials, but also look and feel great. To help you choose the right bag for you, we asked students around the country for their top picks.
