If there’s one thing every student needs to start the year off on the right foot, it’s a great backpack! From pens and pencils, to running shoes and notebooks, that backpack will be carrying gear all year – so it had better be up to the task! What should you look for in a great backpack?
Here are a few pointers to keep in mind… • Make sure your backpack is proportional to your size. If the wearer is less than 5’6” tall, the backpack shouldn’t be taller than 22” and shouldn’t hold more than 20-30lbs. That may sound like a lot of gear, but just pile up a stack of notebooks and textbooks and see how heavy they are! • Straps should be padded and broad enough so they won’t cut into your shoulders when the pack is heavy. Adjustable straps make things easiest to manage, so be sure to look for solid clips and handy snaps. • Some backpacks now feature a single strap that wraps across the body to provide ergonomically correct weight distribution. Try out both styles, with a few books loaded inside for the testing process, to see which is more comfortable for you. • If you’re finding that you need to transport large quantities of books as well as a laptop – as many college and university students now must – you might prefer a wheeled backpack. With extendable handles, solid wheels and padded laptop sleeves to protect computer equipment, these backpacks can also double as weekend getaway luggage. • Obviously, the more pockets and pouches your backpack can offer, the better. At the least, you’ll need a spot for your cell phone, your keys, your wallet and that padded slot for your laptop. Make sure pockets and pouches close with zippers or Velcro, not snaps for safety. No doubt the biggest challenge will be to decide on colour and pattern – and you’ll find everything from neon brights to trendy plaids at Seaway Mall! Who knows? You might find that one won’t cover all your fashion needs and you might need two or three or… WIN $200 IN MALL GIFT CERTIFICATES
