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.
By selecting a light weight backpack that fits properly, has padding in the back, has two wide padded shoulder straps, with compartments, and a waist strap, you are ensuring your child the most comfortable fit possible.
Kids and teenagers love trendy stuff and while there's quite a vast selection to choose from, what will work for them is a drawstring backpack that they find comfy and what's currently in vogue. For the girls, bags in pink with flowery decorations will be appropriate while the boys will prefer their traditional blue. The boys might also prefer the themed backpacks that have their favorite hero or their preferred game. Fun color combinations, polka dots or the freakish out of the ordinary type of bags that kids and teenagers love to have.
This is why you need to think carefully about the length and conditions of the trip you are planning to take before heading out. By studying your backpacking gear list, you will be fully prepared and confident that your backpacking experience will be a good one. Depending on the type of backpacking adventure you are considering, consulting a reputable guide to backpacking is essential.
Every parent will want more for their child as far as a new drawstring backpack is concerned. If your child is starting school at the beginning of the year, a personalized one will do fine. When getting a personalized bag for your child, consider that they are growing every year and with their growth they will want to change many things including the bags that they use. Kids and teens personalized drawstring backpacks are wonderful for all occasions including gifting during birthdays.
