Whether you love nature, sushi or even dragons, there's a backpack out there to match your mood. Here's our roundup of unusual bags that will separate you from the rest of the pack.
1. The cat backpack
Give your cat a window to the world with this backpack that doubles as a pet carrier. Honestly, it would take a pretty chill cat to dig this kind of ride. But hey, if your feline bestie is mellow, why not give him a lift?

Ready to take on zombies or other gruesome creatures? This backpack is the perfect place to store all of your apocalyptic accessories. It's made from leather so it will stand up to a lot of wear and tear. But you may want to make sure it's blood — er, water — proof to avoid unsightly stains.

Is it a beetle or a backpack? It's actually a little bit of both. And while it may look strange, the cocoon-like carapace of this backpack is sure to keep your stuff safe.
4. Sushi backpack

Hmm... There's something fishy about this backpack but I just can't put my finger on it... Oh wait! Maybe it's the fact that it's made to look like giant pieces of sushi riding on your back! No matter what style of sashimi you select, one thing is for sure: This backpack is going to leave you hungry for more.
5. Winged backpack

Have you ever wished that you could fly? Of course you have. But while this winged backpack may not actually help you achieve liftoff it will give you the next best thing: wings. The beautiful felted-wing bags come in rainbow shades or a more muted "shades of gray" style.
6. Dragon backpack

So yeah, this backpack is a dragon. I can't decide if this bag is the coolest or the creepiest thing I have ever seen, but it is probably somewhere in between. Quite possibly the best part about this design is that it is actually a functional backpack, with an opening right under the dragon's neck.
7. Leafling backpack
