Is there an age limit on backpacks?

Last week, Helen Mirren was trolled online for being ‘too old’ to be wearing a backpack. But, is it even possible to be ‘too old’ for a bag?

Backpacks have been a pretty standard aspect of fashion for decades. They come in all different styles and sizes, can be very affordable and are usually pretty practical given the way they’re worn. The weight of the bag is distributed evenly, preventing cramp in your back or arms, unlike a single strap bag.

They’re useful and stylish, for pretty much anyone who wants to have a comfortable way of carrying their wares and 73-year-old Helen Mirren isn’t exempt from that.

We took to Twitter to find out what you thought about this…



In short, backpacks are excellent for anyone regardless of age. We think you’re rocking that backpack Dame Mirren.
