How To Look For That Perfect Backpack In Time For The College Semester
Posted: Nov 23, 2014
For college students, it can be really difficult. Choosing the right bag can be tough, especially when you need it to be both utilitarian and fashionable. You also need to be able to carry around a tremendous number of books, folders, and various other college paraphernalia which some bags just cannot accommodate. Furthermore, with the amount students carry these days, one also has to take into consideration posture, price, and other technical jargon which can make shopping for the perfect backpack a little daunting. This article will look at how to search for the best backpacks that can accommodate a student’s lifestyle, and dispose of the fear of spending too much money on something of poor quality.
This first tip applies to any backpack shopper in general. You need to take into consideration what your specific use of the bag is, and how long you will be using it for. If you are only going to use a backpack temporarily, it would be unwise to spend more than $50 since you won’t need it for long. Similarly, you need to buy a backpack that can withstand the weight of your belongings. If you buy a backpack which can only withstand a few folders, it won’t do any good when you are set a project requiring much more than just ‘a few’ folders. Therefore, for college students especially, durability is key when searching for that perfect backpack.
The next things to look out for are price range and comfort. Knowing how short students can be on spare cash, it can be difficult to choose the right bag which is of good quality without breaking the bank (or your parents’ bank). When looking for a backpack, focus on the material it is made from, any padding on the straps, size of the straps, and a strong but comfortable mesh back pad. For the amount students carry, two-strap backpacks are usually better, and provide more stability and comfort than a one-strap backpack. Backpacks can range in price from $20 to over $100 but with those prices comes quality. A bag of around $40-$50 would do well at being both comfortable and of high quality without costing too much. So for college students, be sure to check quality before spending your money!
And lastly, the best backpacks for college don’t necessarily have to be the most expensive or high end. College students are of the age where expressing yourself is important. A way to do that is through clothing and accessories, so choosing the right bag can be a great way to show the world your true personality. Don’t be afraid to buy a backpack which is a little different but that you love. And look for the extra features such as zips and side pockets. Choosing a backpack that you love which is also very useful can be just the thing you need to have a great time at college.
