Choose the right backpack for your child by looking for these features.

Step 1: Determine size
Determine if the backpack is the appropriate size for your child's age, weight, and height.

Do not purchase an oversize backpack, or one that is too heavy.

Step 2: Look for reflective trim
Make sure the backpack has reflective trim to increase its visibility at night.

Step 3: Get padded shoulder straps
Get a backpack with padded shoulder straps for comfort and support.

Your child should carry their backpack on both shoulders to avoid back strain.

Step 4: Choose a padded back
Choose a pack with a padded back to protect a child from being poked from objects inside the pack.

Step 5: Choose a backpack with waist belt
Get a backpack with a waist belt for extra support and to help distribute the weight evenly.

Step 6: Choose a pack with compartments
Choose a backpack with multiple compartments. This will help distribute the weight to prevent injury.

Step 7: Look for recycled fabrics
Make a healthy choice for your child and for the earth by choosing a backpack made from recycled fabrics.
