HOW TO CHOOSE THE PERFECT BACKPACK

With September right around the corner, it’s time to prep for the new school year! Every year comes with a new slate and that means many opportunities and new goals to achieve. As children grow up and begin new classes, parents may begin to feel a little nostalgic. If there is an accessory that captures this natural feeling in the cycle of life, it is the backpack. With every phase in our lives, we need a backpack, whether we are starting middle school, university or traveling abroad for the first time. Some questions to ask when shopping for a backpack: Do you need a bigger one? Which style is better for you? Here is some advice to help you choose the backpack that will suit you best.


The classic backpack

This year, Jansport upholds its solid reputation by creating beautiful bags available in a wide selection of colours, patterns and sizes. For instance, the Superbreak model distinguishes itself with a padded back panel that makes it very comfortable for daily use, even when carrying heavy books. Most styles also come with a padded pocket suitable for a 15 inch computer. The Big Campus model comes with multiple compartments that are perfect to pack a water bottle or any other necessity you might have to bring along. 

The brand Fjallraven offers the Kanken model which is both trendy and multifunctional. It stands out with its vintage and timeless look and can even be waterproofed with the right product. This is the kind of bag that will be at your side in school and while you participate in the rest of your activities!

The shoulder bag

For those who prefer the shoulder bag to the backpack, the Jansport brand has what you need. These bags are suitable for school and can also be used as "tote"  handbags. In addition,  The North Face brand offers the Field Bag model as a leading fashion accessory this season. Made of recycled materials, this bag will undoubtedly be an essential trend this year! The biggest advantage of the shoulder bag is the quick access you have to whatever you pack. It is also a must when it comes to family outings.

The fanny pack

Famously called « fanny pack », this waist-bag is not a distant memory of the 80’s anymore. Now back in fashion, this accessory is not only stylish, it is also very useful. Since it is relatively small, it conveniently keeps all your essentials at arm’s length. If you are going for a run, a hike or you don’t want your kids to forget their sunscreen at recess, the fanny pack is the ideal solution. Being adjustable, you can also wear it over the shoulder for something different. Vans and Jansport offer a wide selection of styles that will surely please you.
