When your teenager begins high school, they are faced with many challenges that they did not have to worry about in middle school. The workload is much greater and they have to have all the hip items in order to look cool to their friends. This means that they need to have a backpack that can offer the storage capabilities needed for more books as well as look good doing it. Theses backpacks need to have a few things in order to fit this bill, some of which are necessary and some which are just cool.
• Wheels – It can be difficult carrying around all the weight that a backpack is carrying so having one with wheels can make the load much lighter for the student. Many students suffer from back injuries because their backpacks are too heavy for them to carry. There are many backpacks that are geared toward the younger generation, have wheels on them and are not very expensive.
• Solar Panels – This is just one of the cool options for a backpack. Solar panels can help to charge up the teenager’s cell phones or laptop computers. These can get a bit pricey, but they last for a long time and are considered very green. The sun can charge up the solar panel batteries while they walk to and from school and they cannot use the excuse that their cell phones were dead when you try to call them.
• Laptop Backpack – If your teenage boy needs to have a laptop computer with them for their homework, then the laptop backpacks are a great choice. They offer extra cushioning to protect the expensive laptops from damage. They have a special area for the laptop that is separate from the books which could ruin it if the books were to hit the laptop continuously.
• iPod Backpack – These backpacks are great because they allow for headphones to be ran through them so the boys can listen to their music on their way to or home from school. You do not have to worry about that expensive MP3 player getting broken because it fell out of the pants or jacket pocket. These also come in some really great colors and themes that teenage boys of all ages are into.
Many of the above styles listed come in combinations of the three. You can find solar backpacks with wheels and an MP3 player dock. The price does increase with the more features that the backpack offers so keep this in mind when purchasing.
