Backpacks for Fun and Fashion
Backpacks are the new go-to bags for travelers, busy moms, students, and the fashion aware
Backpacks are showing up everywhere these days. They’re not just for hiking anymore. They are used as school bookbags, as purses, as diaper bags, and for hands-free travel. Let’s look at the best features to look for when shopping for a backpack for each of these purposes.
Traveling the hard way…
Imagine you’re in a crowded airport dashing down the hallways dragging your rolling bag behind you as you struggle to keep your messenger bag on your shoulder. You cringe as it slips again bouncing off the floor. Yikes! Your electronics are in there!
You make it to your gate as they call for final boarding of your flight. You step onto the plane. Shimmy sideways down the aisle apologizing all the way as your tote hits passenger after passenger.
You find your seat… ugh, it’s in the middle of the row. You lean over the aisle passenger to lay your carry on bag on your seat so you can stow your suitcase in the overhead space.
But, it doesn’t have to be this way.
Imagine again the mad dash down the concourse to your gate. This time, your carry-on bag is a travel backpack. It sits squarely in the middle of your back, evenly balanced and secure. You make it onto the plane and easily stow your suitcase without incident… no braining other passengers, no cracked electronics.
Your travel backpack holds everything the messenger style tote did, it still fits under the seat, so what’s the big deal? The ability of using both shoulder straps to keep your bag safely on your body and reduce back strain.
When shopping for a travel backpack, look for a secure pocket to hold your travel documents, water bottle pocket, and perhaps even a strap to slip over the handle of your rolling bag so you don’t have to carry it at all.
