School Backpacks

Going back to class means being prepared with the essentials. School backpacks help keep students of all ages organized, providing a means of transporting textbooks, notebooks and accessories back and forth. Many have built-in comfort features and materials that can stand up to the daily demand. Shoppers at Staples can find backpacks in a variety of colors and styles from top brands such as Jansport, Disney and Benrus.

Organizational Features Keep Necessities Within Reach
Most black backpacks for school come with a wide array of small and large pockets and technology sleeves. Utility pouches usually have a built-in organizer to hold writing utensils, calculators, rulers and other small necessities. Laptops, tablets and smartphones require an additional layer of protection to protect against accidental drops, shocks and bumps. Side mesh pockets make it easy to keep cool drinks within reach and some backpacks come with key fobs to keep house and car keys secure throughout the day.

Comfortable Designs Promote Proper Posture
Comfort is a must, especially for higher grade-level students who have more materials to carry home each day. Padded back panels and straps provide additional cushioning, and ergonomic shoulder straps help distribute weight evenly across the body to prevent neck, shoulder and back strain.

Multiple Colors and Patterns Add a Fun Touch to School Backpacks
Shoppers can find rolling backpacks for school in nearly any color scheme from pastel hues to bright, bold colors that command attention. Many also come in modern or geometric patterns for students who want to add a little more pizzazz to the school day. For younger students, character leather backpacks create a good way to break the ice and make new friends with similar interests.

What Are the Different Types of Straps on School Backpacks?
Backpacks come with either one or two shoulder straps. S-curve straps have an ergonomic design that helps increase comfort by evenly distributing weight. Some have straight-cut straps with cushioned padding, while others have a sternum strap that helps stabilize the weight. Most also have a web haul handle located at the top of the bag to offer an additional carrying option. Adjustable straps make it easy to get just the right fit.

How Do You Choose Backpacks for School that Fit?
Since laptop backpacks come in several sizes, it's essential to choose one that fits you or your child appropriately to avoid any strain. Carefully measure the length of the torso, and look for bags that fall within that range. They usually come with adjustable straps so you can set it at the right carrying height to promote proper posture.

Can You Use the Technology Sleeve with Any Device?
Yes, as long as the device fits within the sleeve it'll benefit from the added protection the sleeve offers. Choose an appropriate size backpack that fits your device, particularly for laptops which have a greater variation in sizes than tablets and smartphones. Shoppers can find options that fit laptops measuring up to 17 inches, for those that need to transport their devices to and from school. Add new school backpacks to your children's school supplies list.
