Best Backpacks for Kids
Hi, I’m Linda from eBags.com. It’s back to-school-time, and as a mom, I know how hard it is to pick the right backpack for your student. We have thousands of bags to choose from and theee are mom’s pics picks for our top 5 back-to-school backpacks.
The Dakine Campus Pack is one of our most highly rated laptop backpacks earning top scores for both durability and appearance. The main compartment is large enough to hold your student’s 15” laptop, books and binders and has multiple pockets to keep the little stuff organized. Two of my favorite features are the insulated pocket in the front that will keep drinks and food cold and the fleece lined pocket that will protect sunglasses and phones. The pack comes in lots of cool colors and patterns that are sure to please any student.
The High Sierra Swerve is one or our best – selling school packs and our customers love its great organization. Many students can’t get to their lockers between classes, so I love that this pack has two big compartments to organize books and binders for multiple classes. The padded sleeve will hold a 15” laptop or it’s a great place to put folders and loose papers to protect them from getting torn up in the main compartment. There are also lots of pockets for pens and other little supplies so things don’t get lost. But with all these great features, I have to say that my favorite thing about the Swerve is all the great colors and patterns. The Swerve comes in both girls and boys models, so you will be sure to find a color for even the pickiest student.
I’m constantly amazed at the amount of stuff our students have to carry every day – books, binders, lunches, clothes – and all this weight puts a strain on their backs. This is why I love a rolling backpack, especially for younger students. The High Sierra Chaser is sturdy, rolls smoothly and is easy for an elementary or middle schooler to handle. The main compartment is roomy enough for all their books and supplies and has extra space for lunch and a jacket. The backpack straps tuck out of the way when they are not being used, but can be deployed quickly to climb stairs. This pack doubles as a great sleepover bag and comes in really cute colors and patterns your student will love.
The iconic North Face Surge is one of our Best of the Best backpacks. This means that it has earned an overall rating of 4.6 out of 5 and that 96% of our customers would recommend this bag to their friends. And it’s no surprise. The Surge is one of our best – selling bags ever and reflects the quality and durability of The North Face brand. This pack is great for an older student who needs to protect a laptop or tablet as well as books and binders. There are two separate compartments for organization as well as smaller pockets and compartments for other electronics and daily essentials. The backpack straps and back panel are designed for comfort and breath-ability. In fact, the Surge has been endorsed by the American Chiropractic Association due its ability to distribute weight evenly and efficiently. The Surge comes in both men’s and women’s models and has a great variety of sophisticated colors and prints.
The Right Pack is the iconic JanSport pack that has embodied the heritage and authenticity of the JanSport brand since 1967. The Right Pack is the original suede bottom pack and is the bag that invented the cool retro style that is so popular this year. The Right Pack features a laptop sleeve which doubles as a file holder as well as a roomy main compartment for books and binders. There is also an organizer pocket and comfortable padded straps. The Right Pack comes in several solid colors and new this year is the Right Pack World Collection. The World Collection features bright and colorful fabrics inspired by countries around the world. This is truly THE bag for the student who wants to be unique and express themselves with their pack. The JanSport Right Pack is the bag that my student will be getting this year.
