The first type of backpack is probably one of the most basic types of backpacks around - the simple backpacks that are used by students all over the world. Although they also go by the name of schoolbags or bookbags, there is no denying that just about every student you see is going to be toting around one of these backpacks. They are useful for keeping their school items, books and just about anything else they may need in there. Everyone from grade school, high school and right up to university is going to be using one of these, and this is probably one of the most popular type of backpack around.
It's Fall and students everywhere are preparing to head back to school. Backpacks for school will be first on the school supply list for many kids. The choices of backpacks for school may seem overwhelming at times. Due to the astounding number of available backpacks and options on the market, it just makes sense to take a few moments and find out what backpacks are the best for your kids.
If my three hours was any indication, buying a good backpack is not an easy task. With hundreds of backpack manufacturers and styles, it can understandably be overwhelming. Whatever you do, don't go cheap. You'll be doing yourself a disservice and end up buying a new one anyways. A good backpack is an investment. You needn't spend $500 on a backpack, but be wary of cheap, no-frills, run of the mill $70 brands, as you'll regret the design flaws and absence of extras. Spend a little more for a good backpack from a trusted brand, and it will be your companion for many trips to come. The Osprey pack I eventually settled on has traveled with me from the U.S to the Middle East for 10 awesome years and I know it has another good 10 years to go.
Next is to choose the correct frame size. Remember every backpack is useless (regardless of your good height and top quality of backpack) unless it has a correct frame size according to your body and shape. Gone were the days when people think 'one-size-fits-all'-it far from the truth. Experts strongly believe that your torso size and your overall height are two completely separate measurements when it comes to backpacks. Actually Wayne Gregory was the first backpack designer who thought seriously about the importance of correct frame size to fit your torso.
The human spine is made up of 33 bones called vertebrae, and between the vertebrae are discs that act as shock absorbers. When something heavy-such as a backpack filled with books-is incorrectly placed on your child's shoulders, the force of that extra weight can pull your child backwards. To compensate, your child may bend forward at the hips or arch his or her back, which can cause your child's spine to compress unnaturally. Because of the heavy weight he or she is carrying, your child might begin to develop shoulder, neck, and back pain.
You will also want to get a backpack that is large enough to contain the essential gear related to the length of trip you are planning to take. Learning how to pack a backpack can go a long way in helping you choose just the right backpack for the occasion. Not only will you be ahead of the curve by approaching backpacking from this angle, you will be less likely to find yourself out on the trail with a backpack that is either too heavy or loaded with unnecessary equipment.
