We have found another great back to school offer for you to check out. Best Buy Canada has select backpacks by Sierra and Swiss Gear on sale for 50% off their retail price.
Backpacks range from 14.5 to 19.5 inches in size. I am sure size needed depends on the age of your child and the amount of books and what electronics they are stuffing into it.
This High Sierra 19.5″ Backpack – Flower Pop / Crimson is one of the larger backpacks at 19.5 inches. It includes all the usual things you look for in a backpack including a large interior section with multiple-pocket organizer. The padded mesh shoulder straps and padded back panel will be comfortable for all-day wear or toting uphill, both ways, back and forth to school. The print should win you a few points with reluctant back to school girls. Originally $59.99, the backpack is now on sale for $29.99.
The smallest backpack available is the High Sierra 14.5″ Backpack – Almond / Charcoal / Aquamarine and also available in Purple Razz Mystic / Black. This backpack is not designed to carry a laptop; rather it is designed with a tablet sleeve instead. It has a large interior with a multiple-pocket organizer as well. Originally $69.99, the tablet backpack is now $34.99.
This Swiss Gear 17.3″ Laptop Backpack – Blue/Black is the dream backpack for comfort, organization, and durability. The backpack comes with a laptop compartment, two other main compartments, and multiple smaller pockets for electronics, pencils, and more. The breathable mesh padded back and contoured shoulder straps will help alleviate backpack pressure. This backpack also comes in black if you prefer a simpler colour. Originally $99.99, the Swiss Gear backpack is now only $49.99.
My experience with Swiss gear is very positive. I currently own a piece of their carryon luggage and I used to own a full size piece of their luggage. That luggage was well abused by various airlines, yet it survived! It took the last airline literally tearing the zippers right off the bag for me to pack it in finally. If you are looking for a backpack to outlast your child’s school years, I would give Swiss Gear a try.
No matter which backpack you choose, I suggest picking your pack out soon as this offer ends on Thursday. There are also some backpacks not quite 50% off for sale. Best Buy offers free shipping on orders of $20 or more, so all these backpacks will ship free.
