Can you feel it? Pre-Coachella fever is well underway as hundreds prepare (read: shop) for a weekend in Indio, kicking off a slew of outdoor music festivals around the country until fall. Rather than stocking up on flower crowns and fringe-adorned pieces, might we suggest something practical instead? For example, a mini backpack? It's the convenience of keeping your belongings on your person at all times while also being hands-free for all of the dancing, photo-taking and food-and-drink-holding that you please.

Sure, a crossbody bag or a tote can is just as effective, but what's more comfortable: evenly distributed weight on your back or the awkward pain in your left shoulder? Exactly. Plus, if Cher Horowitz is a fan of the mini backpack ("It's faux!") then best believe we are, too.

Regardless of whether or not your summer plans include a few days spent camping out and listening to live music, having a mini backpack in your possession is a great idea. It'll come in handy for the beach, the park, the boardwalk or any type of fun warm-weather activity you have in mind. Shop our favorite options now in the gallery below.
