A properly fitted, well-designed, and durable backpack is going to be the best available choice for avoiding any discomfort, pain, or even possible long-term injury to your child. The experts at the American Physical Therapy Association have been studying backpack for years. Through their research, the APTA has discovered the main things that make a good backpack. Properly designed and well-padded shoulder straps, load stabilizing adjustable straps, a waist belt to place more weight on the hips and off of the shoulders/back, and several internal compartments to divide the load more evenly.
Lastly, the comfort of carrying the backpack should be the main concern in buying a laptop backpack. There are a lot of chic, durable and multi-functional laptop backpacks in the market but there are only a few which considers the comfort of the carrier. Among the few that I found in the net is the Lincoln Park bag by Mc Klein. The bag is made from Full Grain Napa Cashmere Leather and has an advanced, non-slip, shock absorbing neoprene Comfort Flex shoulder strap which stretches for comfort, and alleviates body strain. Another bag made for comfort is the High Sierra Swerve Laptop Backpack. The bag is great for professionals and students alike. It has lots of pockets and has a VAPEL mesh padded back panel and S-shaped Vapel mesh Airflow padded shoulder straps to add to carrying comfort.
Depending on the size of your load, you'll need to choose a pack with sufficient support. The main categories of backpacks are back packs with internal frames, backpacks with external frames, and frameless backpacks. Frameless packs are meant for lighter loads. This kind of backpack is simply a bag with straps that fit over the shoulders. More sophisticated frameless backpacks may have padded shoulder straps and backs for extra comfort and additional pockets to help organize your supplies.
The backpacks are available in many themes too including Spider-Man, Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Ben 10, Military canvas backpacks, and many more. Some backpacks have a place for a hidden name tag which makes it impossible for strangers to see your child's name although this makes it possible for the bag to still be identified. Most of the backpacks are convenient for books and a snack while at the same time they are lovely for using in the outdoors and for any other activities. The issue of personalization comes in when you want your kid's backpack to be special and unique and also when a company decides to give school going kid's drawstring backpacks as giveaway gifts for the company's promotional purposes.
Be sure you choose your backpack with padding in the back area and a pack with two wide padded shoulder straps. The padding across the back makes it much more comfortable as well as protecting your kid from sharp book edges or other pointed items stored in the backpack. The wide padded shoulder straps provide more comfort than a thinner straps, and these straps are not as likely to rip away as quickly as the thinner ones under the weight of the backpack.
Functionality of the laptop backpack is best assessed by asking a question, what kind of laptop backpack do I need? Do I need a bag with just a padded compartment for my laptop or a bag that consists of a padded compartment for a laptop together with other features such an organizer with storage space for media devices, mp3 player pouch and a zip way mesh water bottle holder? Laptop backpack bags available in the market address this kind of need. In browsing the web I came across this particular bag which I think is very smart, sleek and most of all functional especially to those people on the go. The Fulton bag by Mc Klein fits laptops that are 15\" in size. The bag has a top-Loading Access with detachable computer sleeve that stores and protects laptops, an organizer with storage space for media devices, cell phone, business cards and pens, a MP3 or CD player pouch complete with slit for ear phones, a zip-away mesh water bottle holder and side zipper pockets for small miscellaneous items, a dual side pockets for accessories and a zippered file compartment. The great thing about this Fulton bag is the air-lift padding against the back to keep the carrier comfortable.
