How to Choose a Back-to-School Backpack
Find the Right Fit
One of the most important factors that should be taken into consideration when purchasing a backpack is the size. You don't want to purchase an oversized bag that will weigh down a small child or a bag that's too small for a bigger child. When conducting your search, look for a backpack relatively proportionate to the child's height and width. For added comfort and support in our girl's big kids backpacks, opt for a bag with broad, adjustable straps and padding for the shoulders. Or if you prefer a backpack that features a lightweight, wheeled design, check out our line of girls High Sierra backpacks.
Consider the Material
In general, dense material can make a backpack heavier before books and supplies are even placed inside of it. Instead, choose a bag made from synthetic fabrics that are more lightweight and water-resistant such as nylon or polyester. We know that with so much daily use backpacks will eventually begin to rip and experience zipper issues. Finding a quality backpack will not prevent this, but it will help prolong the life of your bag.
Pick Something They'll Love
It's no surprise that children like to wear backpacks that reflect their interests and personality. Therefore, it's important to consider the style of the backpack as well. From colors and brands to shows and movie characters, there's a backpack for everyone. Does your little one have a favorite color? No matter what pattern or color you're looking for, we have a variety of options available. Shop our wide selection of girls' black backpacks, red backpacks, and more!
