Backpacks for children

Backpacks are the most practicle bags of all bags. That is why they are a good bag option for children. They do not weigh much and are very practical in every child’s life. Here are some  of the advantages of choosing a backpack for your child.

For instance, the most common way to use a backpack for children is for school. You can fit stuff like books, lunchboxes and pencils in it. Because you wear it on your back it gives your child space to run and play around without the feeling of carrying a bag. Another big advantage is the weight of the bag that is placed on both shoulders of your child. You will not have to worry if the backpack will harm their shoulders or back. But keep in mind that as a parent your are in charge of the amount of weight that is put into the bag. Also be aware of children wearing their backpacks with just one strap on their shoulder. This is not good fort heir bodies because they are still developing.

Many years ago backpacks only came in regular colors and did not offer a wide range of styles. Today you can choose of many, many different styles. For children you have backpacks in all the colors of the world or with their favorite superhero or singer. For girls you can choose a bag with bright girly colors and/or flowers and for boys a backpack with images of their favorite sportsclub. If you can afford it let your child pick their own backpack. It will give them a sense of pride and independance. Because it is very important for young children to be accepted in school in a social way.


The backpack as fashion statement

For the last couple of decades the backpack was considered a practical back for travellers, children and the occasional business man. But the last year and a half there has been a change. All of a sudden many famous designers started to make backpacks for women which were very fashionable. As always with fashion it took a little while for the public to embrace the idea of a backpack as a fashion must have. But the Indian market has caught up with the trend and there are many places where you can buy a stylish backpack yourself.

If you’re not quite sure if a a trendy backpack is the right choice for you, just take a look at Jabong. It offers traditional backpacks and great brands like Nike. But also has fashionable backpacks which you can choose. The website is a great way to compare fashion and traditional backpacks. If you have already decided on a trendy backpack then Inonit is the best place for you. The website has dozens of great backpacks for women. Whether you want a chic leather one, a bright colorful one or even a backpack with animal print, Inonit offers it.

Once you have chosen your backpack you will soon realise it is a great way of having a practicle bag and looking trendy at the same time. A backpack offers easy access and usually has more than one pocket. No more sore shoulders wearing a bag across your body. Or what about only having one arm and hand available while you are shopping because you are wearing a regular handbag? With a fashion bachpack those days are gone. Walk around with both your arms free while looking like a model on the runway.

The social world of backpacks

Of all the ways to carry your personal belongings – whether they are books, clothes, a collection of Star Wars figures, your laptop, or a myriad of other items – the backpack offers the richest social world of them all. The backpack tells the world who you are and what you’re about in ways the satchel, for example, can only dream of.

Sure, briefcases and handbags come in all manner of shapes (though flat and rectangular is the obvious preference), sizes and styles, but then again, so do backpacks. The important question, however, is how many ways can you carry a briefcase? That’s right, one way, like a boring person.

As anyone who has ever owned a backpack will tell you, how you wear your backpack sends a multitude of social signals to others, especially other backpack-wearers. First off, you can choose to carry your backpack casually by just using one strap, or sensibly by using both. Secondly comes the choice of how tight to make the straps. Tightening the straps so that you carry your backpack high up has, traditionally, indicated that you’re more of an academic/nerdy type. Loosening those straps so that your backpack dangles at about knee-height may mark you out as a disgruntled teenager.

There is, of course, a whole range of nuance in-between these choices and what message you send out to others will depend on the style of your backpack. The important thing is to go out there, have fun, and express yourself (and ditch those briefcases!).
