Hot Stuff: These Minimalist Backpacks Are Perfect On Campus!


By Hershey Neri 


A lot of millennials are loving the minimalist trend right now, and to be honest, we’re just as hooked as they are. And one Japanese brand that offers this is Rootote. Known for their simplistic tote bags and backpacks, they offer the perfect balance of form and functionality! All of their bags are designed for travel, sports, outdoor activities, and yes, even for campus life.

Here are 3 reasons why we’re loving Rootote backpacks!

1. They’re water-repellent. We know, we know. College students aren’t rainproof (we hear you, Espana and Taft peeps,) but hey, your bags can be. With a water-repellent bag, you can confidently walk under the rain from one building to another, without worrying that your books and papers will get soaked. Sweet!

2. They're anti-theft. If you commute on your way to school, then you’d love this feature: Rootote’s two-way lock makes it harder for others to get your stuff without you noticing!

3. They have IG-worthy colors and designs. Their tote bags come in super cute designs—ranging from neutral colors like black and white, to candy colors like teal, purple, and yes, even the crowd-favorite millennial pink!
