Convertible backpacks are a trend. I see everybody, both men and women, carrying backpacks (or knapsacks if you are from my generation) to work and other occassions. I have not personally gotten in on this trend because I just don’t like backpacks. I don’t like having things on my back – it just bugs me. And if I can be honest, one of my biggest pet peeves is when people carry backpacks on crowded public trains and buses — refuse to remove them while in this space –and are seemingly oblivious to the infringement on the space of others this causes. It’s more than a pet peeve, actually. I think it is bloody rude. Ok? And it is the grace of God that I have not yet confronted one of these people with a “can you please get your f7$*ing backpack from crushing my face??!” For me, if you want to carry a backpack, no problem. But on a crowded train or metro, you need to remove it. And that should be a LAW.

With my position on backpacks having been clearly stated for the record, (such that everybody is perfectly clear on where I stand) wanna get in on the Convertible leather Backpack trend? Today I want to show you 9 options from Amazon, that, if I were into backpacks, I would totally like. Do you like any of them?
