It’s hard to believe that its Back To School time already. From kindergarten to college, we know that you have a checklist of items to get your favorite student. So many decisions and so little time.We’re here to help you with some of those decisions.
We have a great selection of backpacks and messenger bags for every type of student. When selecting a bag, make sure to test the fit on your child. The average backpack weighs 12 pounds after books and supplies are put into it and a student will lift that bag about 10 times a day. Experts recommend that a backpack should weigh less than 10% of a student’s body when full to eliminate strain. Padded straps are also a great feature to look for when making sure your child is comfortable. Also, consider what your child will be putting in their backpack. Do they need extra pockets for supplies? Does it need to be laptop friendly?
You may also want to look into wheeled backpacks. Make sure to check with your school first on if the school allows these types of backpacks. Some schools consider them a tripping hazard.
