Backpacks

Heading back to school means picking up new supplies, and kids' backpacks are always on the list. They offer a complete storage and transportation solution for students of all ages. Whether you're shopping for your kindergartner's first bag or purchasing one for a college student, you'll find many options at Staples.

Kids' Backpacks Come in Varying Sizes and Designs For Different Age Groups
Designed with versatility in mind, book bags come in a variety of sizes to suit different grade levels and course loads. Preschool and elementary school kids' backpacks tend to be smaller than those for middle or high school students, as the workload is lighter. Younger kids are less likely to bring textbooks home on a daily basis. Letting students express their personalities is easy, as Staples carries a wide selection of colors and patterns. Fun designs such as sports icons or butterflies adorned in rhinestones also help kids identify their bags fast.

They Have Multiple Pockets for Storing Accessories
Most kids' backpacks for school feature multiple pockets to help children and teens stay organized. Utility pouches on the front or side store pens, pencils and other small accessories, while the main compartment carries books and binders. Modern book bags have a tech compartment where students can store their devices, such as a laptop or tablet that's used for taking notes or completing online assignments. The tech compartment is padded to protect against bumps and drops. Some bags even have an internal pouch for MP3 players with an external wire port for convenience.

Mesh side pockets make it easy to transport and store water bottles while keeping them within reach. Additionally, Staples carries some specialty bags that have an insulated pouch in the front to hold meals. This comes in particularly handy for kids who often leave their lunch bag behind. Kids can store their house or car keys on the bag's fob, reducing the chance that they'll lose them during the day.

Durable Materials for Constant Use
Consistent use throughout the year means you must buy a bag that can stand up to wear. Bags made of lightweight materials work better for recreational use. Other bags feature heavy 600-denier polyester construction, which lasts for years and offers more support for carrying multiple books.

Adjustable Straps Offer Better Posture and Control
It's important that a school bag offers comfort and support, especially as the carrying load increases over the years. Lumbar support helps encourage good posture, while air-cushioned straps help place the weight at waist level instead of on the shoulders, resulting in less strain on the neck and back. Padded and S-curve straps help improve overall comfort, while adjustable options make sure the bag sits centered on the back.

Special Features Accommodate Special Needs
Children with disabilities and injuries often have special needs that must be considered when choosing a kids' backpack. Rolling bags prevent strain as students wheel them, rather than carry them to class. A telescopic handle allows students to move the bag without bending, and 360-degree wheels improve the bag's maneuverability.
