Going to school has to do with a lot of books for writing and reading as well as other essential school supplies that can’t all fit into the pockets of kids. It’s a no brainer then, that children need a functional, easy to carry, bag that they can pack up all they need for school. Hence the functional world of Backpacks.

A Backpack, also referred to as a "book bag" or "book sack", in its simplest frameless form, is a fabric sack carried on one's back and secured with two straps that go over the shoulders. Backpacks are commonly used by hikers and students, and are often preferred to handbags for carrying heavy loads or carrying any sort of equipment, because of the limited capacity to carry heavy weights for long periods of time, with one’s hands.

Besides it’s obvious “load carrying” functionality, there are a lot of other factors to look out for when getting backpacks for your kids this new school year. You need to consider the features of the bag; how much can it actually carry? Are there compartments to accommodate the different supplies and books your kids require for school? How strong is the bag? And what’s the wear and tear guarantee? These are all good questions to ask but you need to also find backpacks that not only incorporate functional elements, but ones that are also trendy, stylish and suit the child’s personality.
