Forget crossbody styles and trendy python prints--backpacks are the most popular style of bags for fall, especially in supple leather. Every designer from Gucci to Chanel to Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen's line The Row made leather backpacks this season. Whether you need something to tote your laptop around in, or you're just looking for something stylish and comfortable on your shoulders, we've rounded up the best leather versions on the market.
