Some of the oldest wisdom says that you get what you pay for. Well, when it comes to the best backpacks for high school, this is absolutely true.

Don't Buy Cheap, Promotional Backpacks

Every year, there are certain manufacturers who flood the market with backpacks that they think the kids will want. These types of cheaply made backpacks will display the latest cartoon character or pop music band. You know the only reason some of these manufacturers are making these cheap backpacks is because they know that when a kid sees it, they will want it.

      I think that you hit all of the points with this Hub. The weight, the way it fits on the child's body, and the style of the backpack is very important. Great for the beginning of the school year! I just got a rolling backpack and can't believe I've never had one before!
