Oh, Boy! Traveling with kids is certainly a challenge. But it can be a lot of fun when handled properly. One aspect to consider is packing. Kids will like to carry some of their stuff. That is when backpacks can be very helpful because kids like backpacks.
For kids, backpacks are useful in various ways. For schools, they are very convenient, they carry lunch, necessities, and books.
For travel, they can contain snacks, toys, iPads, and some convenient belonging such as shoes, tissues, crème and much more.
Manufacturers are very inventive when they produce backpacks for kids. They know how to shape them, how to make them attractive with beautiful bright colors.
Before we get to these details, let’s analyze what kids really need
Two aspects are critical when considering a backpack for your child. First, the material used to make it, and the shoulder straps.
Materials include the fabrics and the zippers.
Fabrics: Commonly used fabrics are Nylon and Polyester. The main reason manufacturers choose them is the argument of the necessity to make them waterproof and protect the contents.
The downside is that these materials are not eco-friendly because they are not made of natural fibers.
It is important to be aware of the environment and your child health. There are risks for allergies. If I can help, I would advise you to look for a product that is made of natural fibers.
Some backpacks are made of cotton. That is the best material. If you find them, don’t hesitate.
Zippers: Good zippers are easy and smooth, and they do not clasp the fabric. Also, they can last longer. Avoid Velcro because it is not as durable like a good zipper.
The key criterion is the weight distribution on muscles. To reduce the risk of muscle injury, wide and padded shoulder straps are recommended.
The straps and the back panel must be made with foam to ensure comfort and support.
Also, make sure you take into account the age of the child when choosing the backpack
