Sometimes, children will carry a bag with their school supplies in it, then a lunch bag too, or a P.E./plimsoll bag if that is needed. This means some of the weight is distributed and not all in one place which can be helpful to the child.
It is handy, especially in hotter months to have a bottle holder on the outside of the bag, as it gives easy access to their water instead of having to rummage around their bag for it. There are also some school bags with lunch boxes attached, handy for those who always forget to take their lunch with them!
Waterproof bags are sometimes difficult to come across however, not impossible. Although, there are rain covers available for bags if you cannot find a waterproof one. These rain covers come for most styles of bags, even bags on wheels!
Due to backpacks being the most common school bags, this is the style of bag you will see in most places, with different designs, styles, textures, and sizes. This can range from patterned bags to character bags. You can see our collection of school bags here!
