- There are three main factors to consider when selecting the perfect backpack for school:
a. Storage needs – how much do you realistically need to carry on a daily basis, and will it be limited to books or do you need tech protection as well? b. Style – a backpack is essentially part of your apparel, so it's important to pick one that matches your personality. c. Comfort and durability – it is often necessary to carry around extremely heavy books and binders that can cause pain and back problems if the pack doesn't provide the right support, so talk to an Expert to find the fit that best matches your needs.
- There are some emerging trends all students should be aware of:
a. Southwestern prints are popular right now, and Dakine has a great selection. b. The Right Pack from JanSport is a classic look that's always in style. c. Wheeled packs are great for kids in grade school who can't support a heavy load on their back. d. Digital packs are a popular choice for high school and college students who need to protect their iPads and laptops as they trek around campus.
- There are backpacks for every activity and every person, so it's important to pick the pack that fits your specific needs and activities, whether that's athletics, action sports, digital or just the classic school tote.
