Back To School Basics – Backpacks
The kids go back to school next week and among the items on that school supply list is probably a new backpack. There are so many to choose from, but which ones are the best? Here are the top five.
Simple doesn’t mean they skipped the details. There are three sections in this one to keep the subjects separated, and a lot of specialized features like a hook for cleats. It doesn’t have a lot of padding on the shoulder straps, so it could make long days less comfortable. It’s best for ages 13-18, comes in 11 colors and retails for $35.
This backpack has tons of organizational space and lots of compartments. There’s even space for electronics. It’s made of durable polyester and survived torture tests like being dropped, abraded and spilled on. It’s best for ages 8-12, comes in 19 patterns and retails for $45.
It’s made of some pretty tough fabric, has one large compartment and one smaller pouch. It can easily handle 10 pounds of books, notepads, file folders, food, sneakers, art supplies, pens, markers and pencils. It’s best for ages 8-12, comes in 10 colors and patterns and retails for $30.
