Holiday season is over and it is time to go back to school. Like most people out there, the norm is probably for you to buy a new bag your child can use to store their schoolbooks. Well, to help you make the right choice, here are a few tips on how you can get your child the best book bags ever.
Pay Attention to the Pockets and Size of the Bag
Before you can buy your child any appropriate school bag, you need to know first how heavy his books will be. You also need to know the size of those things that he is going to put into his bag. Keep in mind that first grade students will certainly have different needs when compared to college students.
Choose a Suitable Fabric Material
The fabric you choose for your child’s book bag will determine how heavy it is, how long it will last and how breathable it is. For examples, if you choose cotton or similar natural fibers, they won’t likely last as long as synthetic fabrics, such as nylon or polyester.
Check Out the Zippers
It is important to pay attention to the zippers. For best results, make sure you only choose heavy duty, double-headed zippers. It is only this kind of zippers that will last through the test of time. And, they are easy to access as well.
Is the Style Out of Date?
Well, sad but true, your child may not want to use the bag you buy him if that bag is old-fashioned. Therefore, you need to figure out what the trend in the market today is before purchasing a bag. In today’s time, for example, children seem to prefer bags with prints on them. However, you may want to make sure that the bag also has a solid color. Otherwise, it may be hard to match the bag with different outfits on different days.
Are the Straps Easily Adjustable?
Last but not least, an easily adjustable strap ensures that your child can wear the bag firmly against their back. This can prevent such an issue as spine ache. The ideal here is that your child’s bag sits higher than your child’s waist, roughly about two inches.
