Leather backpacks are a practical and stylish fashion accessory for both men and women. They can be used instead of a purse or handbag and are popular for formal or casual use, travel or a trip to the gym. They are an upmarket version of a traditional school bag and are often used for business bags in place of a more classic and traditional briefcase. They come in various sizes, so there are ones big enough to fit any computer, book and/or paper requirements. Often they will have a separate computer compartment. They are loved by professionals and students because it is easier to transport heavy paperwork around.
