We were able to check out the new Beckmann backpacks (beckmann-us.com). We had two to choose from: a light purple one and one that has dark and light blue boyish colors. Here are some things we noticed about the backpack.

One pro about the backpack is that it has a lot of space. It even comes with a bag inside of it. Another pro is the backpack is comfortable. We noticed that it takes the weight off your shoulders and redistributes it so you don’t walk all hunched over when you have lots of books and things to carry. It has reflectors on it, and the top has a rain cover to protect it.

We checked out the ones for younger kids, and we think it is great that it comes in different sizes. Besides carrying books, it is great if you go on vacation and carry your stuff.
