Back to friends IRL
Here's to hallway hangouts, making memories with friends, and cool new gear that shows off your personal style. (Plus fun locker accessories to make your space totally you.)

Give your back a break with BackPal

Pack more in with ease. BackPal uses compression technology to turn an unbalanced, overweight bag into an ergonomically sound experience. Sibling duo Deja and Canyon invented BackPal for fellow students.
