Backpacks

Which backpack is best?

Things to think about:

Reflective material for safety

Padded shoulder straps for comfort

Multiple Compartments for weight distribution

The sizing should never be wider or longer than your child’s torso and never hanging more than 4 inches below the waist.

Children should never carry a backpack that weighs more than 10% of the child’s weight, according to the American Chiropractic Association.
