The Best Backspacks for High School 2014

Backpacks for high school need to be designed to handle large loads and have a lot of the amenities ands special features that folks want these days. The standard size backpacks for school these days will provide around 2,000 cubic inches and provide enough room for the textbooks and other items carried by most middle school and high school students.

Larger, more roomy backpacks for school are available for students who need to transport more than the usual load. The JanSporBig Student backpack is capable of carrying 4 to 5 textbooks, a laptop computer, several large binders, an extra change of clothes or shoes, and even lunch.

What to Look for in the Best Backpack for High School

First, look at the type of material from which the backpack is constructed. The best materials for backpacks are a heavy ripstop nylon of at least 650-denier or higher. The higher the denier number, the thicker the fabric. You can also look for Cordura® brand fabric which is also very durable.

Compression straps are also vital to load stability and overall backpack comfort. These compression straps hold the load secure and close to the body which makes the load feel lighter. Lightweight is going to be important when you have to walk a few blocks each day to catch your bus, or make a long jaunt across a big campus. Don't forget about moisture. Make sure your backpack for school is water resistant.

NorthFace Recon Backpack is probably one of the most popular backpacks for school out there, the Recon backpack is popular with most students.

Laptop Backpacks and Wheeled Backpacks for School

More and more students are being required to carry a laptop computer for their classes during the day as well as using a laptop at home. So the laptop backpack for school was invented. This ingenious pack has a special compartment which is padded to provide extra protection against damage to the laptop computer. Make sure the backpack you select has the correct compartment size as some laptops are 15-inches, and some are 17-inches.

Wheeled or rolling backpacks for school are also a very handy device if you're always on a smooth surface. if you have to traverse a lot of stairs, or uneven tile floors, the rolling backpack may not be the ideal choice for you. Whatever style, make sure the backpacks for school which you choose have a comfortable fit, are built to last, and serve your needs.

      I will recommend 11-inch MacBook pro and 13-inch MacBook Air, these two computers is very durable, easy to manipulate, run fast, and the possibility of being infected by malware is very small. Price is $ 999 for each computer. They are both equipped with the best program suite in computer industry, there is also a very good operating system, plus Apple’s support is so ultra-praise. If you think they are too expensive, there are also Windows operating system computers with lower price and similar size available, these computers’ prices are between 600 to 700 dollars. Of course, netbooks may be cheaper, but their choice selection is relatively small and has reliability problems.
