How to Choose your School bag
- First of all, see what your school’s rules or handbook have to say about backpacks. Certain schools do not allow rolling backpacks or messenger bags, for example, and some have specifications with regards to style or color.
- If you have back problems or other medical needs, make sure that the type of bag you’re considering getting will not cause you more trouble. Messenger bags, tote bags or other bags carried on only one shoulder may be poor choices in this situation.
2.Get one which is big enough to hold all your things, preferably in an organized manner.
- Multiple pouches of varying sizes is a good idea. Little compartments are great, to hold all your personal things, especially if you carry your backpack around all day.
- Water bottle holders may be helpful if you carry a water bottle.
- If you bring a lunch every day, you might like to have a separate compartment in which you can put food to prevent spills.
3.Figure out how durable you want your bag to be. If you’re looking for maximum durability, a bag made out of nylon or canvas might be necessary, and depending on where you purchase your bag, you may pay handsomely for that. Conversely, if you want to be able to replace your bag year after year, extreme durability might not be of such concern.
- However, if your bag will be used to carry sports equipment or will be taken on camping or hiking excursions, you would be well advised to go for something that is reasonably durable.
4.Get one from a reputable brand. You don’t have to spend a lot of money, but it’s always helpful to know something about who made your bag. Also, should you need help with your bag, a trusted company is always more helpful.
5.Don’t just choose one that is just good, sturdy and big enough, it has to be appealing or you won’t like wearing it. Your backpack is as important as your clothes, if not more so because you wear the same bag every day! Get one that you like now and will for a while.
