There are so many backpacks to choose from, and choosing the right one for your child is not always easy. Backpacks come in all sizes, colors, fabrics, and shapes-all of which help kids express their own sense of style. As practical as backpacks are for those who use them, backpacks can cause strained muscles and joints and back pain when worn incorrectly.
Young children enjoy carrying backpacks as a sign of their maturity and growing independence. Even preschoolers and kindergarteners like to carry backpacks to have a special place to put their things. Just remember, pediatricians advise that filled backpacks should weigh no more than 10-15% of a child's body weight. Most school backpacks also have adjustable straps for a more comfortable fit.
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.
Once you've decided on the type you want, you should take some time to explore the different styles. As a college student, you may want a one strap backpack (for carrying your laptop), or you may want to go the traditional route and stick with the two strap backpack. Either way, make sure the backpack you pick is functional. For example, you're not going to pick a one strap backpack if you hardly ever bring your laptop to school and you need extra space for books.
Owner's personality has something to do with their choice of backpacks. Fashion conscious people would often go for chic or stylish bags that would match their personalities. Nike Womens Ultimate Victory Backpack is a backpack for teenage girls who have training and school on the mind. The bag is colored pink which shows the femininity of the owner. The bag uses sculpt fit system and has an insulated pocket for her food and beverages. It is crafted with many zippered pockets that would not only store her laptop and documents for school but also her stuff used in training sports. For those fashionables who love to travel, JanSport Hookey is the suitable backpack for them. It is engineered with a designated compartment to unzip for fast airport security scanning without removing the laptop. Other features of the bag include the deluxe organizer with layered accessory pockets and mesh zippered pocket, cord storage pocket, dual water bottle pockets, and S-curve straps with yoke style grab handles.
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.
