The Burton backpacks are perfect for college students preparing for a heavy course load.

Both backpacks include room for your laptop, your books, and your supplies. However, the Burton Annex is better suited for those who want their backpack to come with all the extra features and room for large laptops.

The Tinder is designed for those of us who simply need our backpacks to carry heavy books reliably. Choose the Tinder if all you want is a backpack you can guarantee is going to work. Buy the Annex if you want room for a large 17in or more laptop.
