Another year, another backpack.
Well, maybe you don’t need another backpack every year. Consumer Search has reviewed a number of backpacks, and they’ve come up with some of the best of them. Here’s what Consumer Search says about three backpacks suitable for college students, high schoolers, and others.
- High Sierra Fat Boy – With a low price of $30, a positive review from Consumer Search says “its large, 2,380-cubic-inch capacity provides ample space for storing multiple heavy books and notebooks, and can even accommodate 3-inch ring binders.” The downside? “There’s no laptop sleeve or water-bottle pocket” and the Fat Boy “isn’t waterproof, so gear can get wet if it’s in the rain for a prolonged period.”
- Jansport Big Student – Reviewers say “this simple backpack is one of the best picks for older students.” This backpack has earned a lot of good reviews owing to its “durability and water resistance compared to other packs,” but Consumer Search points out that “the ergonomic shoulder straps are too stiff and uncomfortable.” At an estimated price tag of $40, “this simple backpack is one of the best picks for older students.”
- Lucky Bums Dragonfly 15 – For this backpack “testers like the reflective details for increased visibility, and the pack includes both a hip and sternum strap, which experts say help ease the strain of a heavy backpack on a child’s back and shoulders.” Despite mostly positive reviews from testers, Consumer Search includes among its cons that this item is “expensive for a kids backpack” due to the regular price pegged at $60.
