Backpacks are essential to any back-to-school shopping; I mean after all where will they keep all of those school supplies, right? My teen sons have been driving me cray cray with all of their back to school request but I knew I had to first get the main staple, backpacks.

Over the years I can’t count how may backpacks I have purchased as a mom of 3 school kids. This year I have two sons attending high school which made my choice of which backpack to purchase extremely important. As high school students they will have more subjects/classes than they had in middle school. Each subject usually comes with it’s own textbook or two which is why a quality roomy backpack is important.

I’ve taken shopping for backpacks to a whole new level, yeah I’m cool like that. First, I look for the material. Some materials are sturdier than others which allow them to last longer. Durability is so important when you have teenagers. Don’t always go for the pretty or character printed backpacks. They may look cute but they often don’t last the entire school year.
Extra wide adjustable straps are a must have when it comes to backpacks. Wide straps add comfort to the shoulders and don’t leave marks. Adjust-ability is important when you have growing kids who are prone to growth spurts. I received two quality backpacks from ApparelNBags an online discount website. The bags I received were extremely durable, made with a high quality material. They came in the colors my boys’ requested and if you have more than one child to buy for, they offer deals on multiple purchases. Price is the final item I look for when purchasing backpacks. Both of my backpacks were under $30 including very fast shipping.
