Every day at school is easier and more fun with the right girls' school backpack. School bags come in a wide range of sizes and design options to accommodate girls of varying ages, and they offer different storage capacities and styles. Explore a variety of backpack options at Staples to find the ideal fit.

School backpacks for girls are available in various sizes
Most school backpacks come in one of two standard sizes, but some fall outside the traditional size options. Usually, the size listed in a backpack's description is its height. One standard size choice is the 16-inch backpack. This size accommodates children of most ages as it fits textbooks and small laptops. Those with larger laptops, oversized textbooks, or other storage needs can move up to an 18-inch backpack. These models fit laptops up to 17.9 inches in size. The largest backpacks designed for girls are 19 inches in height. Another atypical option is the 14-inch backpack, which works well for smaller or younger children.

Backpack designs give girls choices
For many, the best part of choosing a girls' school backpack is picking a design. Those looking for a backpack for teenage girls or those who are no longer interested in childish designs may choose a single-color backpack or a bag with a neutral pattern, such as stars, floral designs, or geometric shapes. When shopping for girls who prefer cute patterns, consider backpacks with cartoon animals, fantasy creatures, or branded characters.

Material options for school backpacks for girls
Since there are multiple backpack materials to explore, it's easy to find a suitable choice for each girl. Canvas is a dependable choice for users who spend a lot of time outdoors or need heavy-duty protection for their items. Faux leather offers impeccable style and lightweight design. Those who choose nylon enjoy elasticity and water-resistant protection. Backpacks that use polyester maintain their color well over time and have stain-resistant features.

How should a backpack fit?
Selecting a properly sized backpack helps protect a child from back pain. A backpack's dimensions should be no larger than a child's back. The top of the backpack should sit about 2 inches below a child's shoulders and about 2 inches below a child's waist. Adjustable straps make it easier for a large backpack to fit children of different sizes.

Which compartments are available in girls' school backpacks?
School backpacks for girls vary significantly in how many and which types of compartments they have. Most school bags have side compartments for water bottles and snacks. This is a valuable feature for girls who are always on the go. Some models have padded laptop compartments to protect computers, tablets, and other electronic items. On some backpacks, there are small outside compartments for school supplies, cellphones, and other items that you could easily lose sight of in the main section of the bag. Interior sections provide a simple way to sort charging cords, pens and pencils, and other school supplies.

How can users choose a backpack that will last for multiple years?
While some people replace girls' backpacks each year, shopping carefully lets you select a model that lasts more than one school year. Look into options with adjustable straps, since this lets the backpack accommodate a growing student's size. Explore patterns that are likely to fit a girl's style as she ages. Compare material options to find a backpack that will maintain its shape and durability through several school years.
