Back to school backpack tips!

Returning back to school? Here are some tips for choosing the right backpack for our kids!


Look for the following features:

*Lightweight

*Wide, padded shoulder straps

*Padded back support

*Waist strap

*Appropriate size

*Alternative carrying methods (eg. rolling backpack).


We want to limit backpacks to 10% of bodyweight.


Extra tips:

*Make sure straps are tightened so backpack sits higher on the spine

*Organise heavier items low and closer to the middle of the bag

*Remove unnecessary items where possible and pack light!

*Correct lifting technique, bend from the knees!


Good luck and have a wonderful school year!
