If you’re on the lookout for the perfect school backpack, consider capacity, compartments and fit.
Backpacks with a capacity below 30 litres are generally known as daypacks and are ideal for school use. To determine the right size, think about what you'll be carrying, especially books and folders, which can be bulky.
The inside of a daypack may be one single space or separated by dividers or pockets. Separate compartments help keep your gear organised and easily accessible, although the dividers themselves take up some space. If you are carrying a laptop or tablet to school, then a padded sleeve or compartment is essential to protect your electronics. The 22-litre Realm backpack features a padded, internal laptop sleeve along with adjustable shoulder straps and the classic Off the Wall logo patch.
It’s also important to bear in mind size, straps and padding. The longer you have to carry the bag, the greater the need for comfortable straps and a back panel. Heavy loads will also require well-fitted or adjustable straps to avoid strain on the shoulders and back. Finally, consider additional features such as external pockets for water bottles or other quick-access items.
The Vans range of school backpacks combines ergonomic design with our enduring Off The Wall style for a selection of functional, versatile, effortlessly cool bags.
