Let your son show his style with a boys backpack
Backpacks are a must-have for any boy. Able to go anywhere and handy in just about any situation, a boy's backpack is a fixture throughout childhood and well into adulthood. And it's always those childhood backpacks that hold special memories. Whether you are starting a memory or adding to one, Kmart has the backpack you'll feel confident will do the job and your boy will love to carry around.
Picking the right backpack might feel overwhelming considering the seemingly never-ending selection available. Think about its primary function and go from there. Most backpacks are very sturdy and are built to take the pounding kids of all ages are expected to dish out in addition to the everyday wear and tear. If the backpack is going to be almost exclusively used for school, you may not need to find a backpack equipped with all of the bells and whistles. This holds especially true for younger users, who may need no more than two compartments to store their belongings, be it books or supplies.
For the younger crowd, the options include favorites such as Sesame Street, super heroes and cartoon characters. These backpacks are great compliments to boys character apparel that will help you put together themed outfits on any given day. A nice touch to many backpacks for younger boys is the combination of wheels and pull-up handle. This allows the option of carrying the back over the shoulder or pulling it just as they might see adults moving some of their business and travel bags. Backpacks are also useful in that they don't get in the way of riding bikes or skateboards, and are perfect for hikes and visits to the park.
As boys get older and take part in after-school activities, backpacks become the jack-of-all-trades. Backpacks come in bigger sizes and with numerous pockets, zippers and compartments, all while made to withstand the greater demands placed on it. Another popular feature seen on some backpacks is the ability to expand capacity by simply pulling a zipper from one side of the backpack to the other. Whether it's for sports, art, music or working on science projects, multi-dimensional backpacks become as vital as shoes. Some even have space to carry lunch! The designs are sure to mesh well with your boy's individual style. It's easy to find backpacks that compliment outfits for teen guys or even try to blend with some of Kmart's boys outfits. The backpacks likely to be used by older boys will include favorites such as video game characters, sports teams and figures, as well as trendy designs and patterns.
Whether it is for work, play, travel or a combination of any of these, backpacks are a boy's best friend. Able to be used anytime, anywhere, backpacks become an increasingly important part of everyday life. Shop Kmart to find a backpack he'll tote with pride.
