Smart Backpacks for Back to School Shopping

July 26, 2012 | Posted By: Sarah Kuehneman

Always wondering what backpack to buy for your child? Frustrated half way through the year with a broken strap or a busted zipper? We have put a list of fantastic backpack deals together for you! But, there are always things to remember, like:

  • Does the school your son or daughter attends allow backpacks with wheels?
  • >Some donít because they donít fit into the lockers properly.
  • Looking for a backpack that your son or daughter can grow into so that they donít need a new backpack every year?
  • >Go for the basics, stay away from patterns or popular figures, this will allow your child to get the most out of the backpack for a few school years and summer camps.

Companies that offer repair or replacement for backpacks:

Landsí End: this company will take returns at any time, for broken backpacks. If they still have the order in their system, you received what you paid for it originally, if not you would receive the last price it sold for. So keep your order conformation, and you can return a Landsí End backpack at any time!

The North Face: They repair most of their products. If a zipper breaks all you have to do is send it into the company and they repair it in 3-6 weeks. Also, The North Face products are fully warranted to their original owner regarding defects in the materials and the workmen ship of the product over the lifetime of the product.
