Make sure your backpack comes with several compartments for pencils, and assorted small items so they can be easily found and replaced as they are used. These compartments not only help your child stay organized but they also pad the sharpness of these items in the backpack.
Not only do you want a backpack that will be comfortable and well-suited for your hiking needs, you will need a backpack that is durable and will stand up against the wear and tear that multiple hiking trips will require of it. The fact is, you truly do get what you pay for and that includes short-changing yourself when buying the right backpack for the occasion. Be sure to test the zippers, buckles, snaps and other closures, as well as the seams and straps. Once you are out on the trail, you don't want a backpack that is going to fail you.
Similarly, another important consideration is proper fit of waist belt by knowing its correct size. In simpler words, the hip belt is meant for hips and not for your waist. Therefore hip belt should rest on your hipbone, not on your waist, because if it is on your waist then you will carry too much weight on your shoulder. In the same way if it is too low, it is bound to interfere with your walking. Quite frankly, both are undesirable. Ideally with a full pack on, the top edge of the waist belt should ride one inch above the top of the hip bone. Lastly, you should also pay attention to shoulder straps. These days many good quality backpacks are available in the market with adjustable shoulder straps. Backpacks with self-adjustable shoulder are regarded as top backpacks, because in these backpacks the shoulder straps can be rotated to accommodate individual neck and shoulder shapes.
First, it is important to note that backpacks can be grouped into four different categories - frameless (your typical backpack for college), external frame (hiking, camping), internal frame (hiking, skiing, sports), and the body pack (overnight camping, long trips). As I mentioned, the frameless style is your best bet for the college lifestyle. These backpacks are usually constructed using synthetic materials and are much cheaper than the other three types.
When deciding what backpack you want to buy you have to consider several different things as there are so many different ones available on the market. You will have to look at a backpack buying guide and research all of the different backpacks to get an idea of what you need and want. Deciding what you want your backpack for is essential and how much weight it will need to carry has to be considered. Hiking backpacks are one of the most bought backpacks and if this is the style you are looking for then you will need to narrow down your search.
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.
