Backpacks are bags that possess two shoulder straps which allow the wearer to carry the bag on their back. Backpacks are often associated as a student's must have school accessory for carrying books, etc from class to class.
A handbag is a medium to large bag, often fashionably designed, typically used by women, and used to hold personal items such as wallet/coin purse, keys, tissues, cosmetics, a hairbrush, cellular device or personal digital assistant, feminine hygiene products, etc. Handbags have become many women's favorite possessions, as they stock up on the appropriate sizes and materials to accompany each outfit.

Reviewer: HI gal from Hawaii
I've been purchasing this style backpack for the past 7+ years (having bought 4 of these backpacks). I have noticed that the quality of the materials (zippers, straps, nylon, etc.) has been getting worse over the years. It's still a good backpack that is not too bulky and yet can hold many things. However, this past purchase, the zippers are very "sticky", and I can't seem to fit as much in the front small zippered pocket as my previous backpack. This is a great choice for traveling as well as mothers of young children.
