How do I choose the right backpack?

What kind of backpack you need depends on what you use it for. If you take him to school, it is important that the backpack offers enough space for your books and lunch. When you go hiking, back ventilation is nice to keep your back cool. In this article I explain to you what to look out for.

Backpacks for school and work

Backpacks school


A school backpack must be large enough for your folders, books and lunch. That is why the backpacks that we have put here for you from 19.5 to 40 liters. Do you use a laptop at school? Then take a look at the school backpacks with a laptop compartment. Measure your laptop in advance so you choose the right format.

A backpack that takes you back and forth to work does not have to be very big. That is why we recommend that you use backpacks of less than 30 liters. So you have enough space for your laptop, a number of business documents and your lunch. Some backpacks have a smart sleeve. This way you easily attach your bag to your trolley.
