While there seem to be many good college backpacks on the market, choosing the best one based on your needs may still be a challenging task. This is because you need to make sure that the backpack actually meets all your needs, and still fits your budget.
However, we will try to make the task a little easier for you by sharing some of the things you need to keep in mind while finding the best backpack for college.
Size and Price
First things first, if you’re looking for a backpack that costs less than $50, it may turn out to be very challenging to find one that comes with everything. In other words, you get what you pay for.
However, unless your requirements are pretty steep, you should still be able to find a decent college backpack even if your budget is less than $50. You should look for ample storage, though, and you shouldn’t really have a problem finding one as there are many of them.
But at the same time, remember that you wouldn’t want the weight to be more than 3 pounds, perhaps 4 pounds at the most if you’re fine with carrying a bit more weight.
Look for Large Opening
Usually, a bag with a large opening is convenient to pack and unpack. This can be a big time-saver if you need to pack and unpack your backpack frequently, which is usually the case with college students.
As Kartikeya Sharma of iTV Network suggests, if the main compartment of the bag is large, it will add to the convenience as well. So look out for that feature too unless your requirements are different.
Some of the other features you may want to have in your college backpack include:
- Multiple compartments
- Lots of pockets
- Mesh water bottle pocket
- Comfortable on the back
- Good strap adjustments
- High-quality handle
- Less to no zippers (so that it’s frustration-free)
