does this bag look suitable for pre-teen, for senior school?
The girls at my school mostly have bags like this. But they're not very practical - you can't get A4 files into them, and they don't hold very much.
ds1 has the get set bag from this company, because I am paranoid about backs, spines and posture. They are very expensive, but it seems to be wearing very well. It's spacious and has plenty of pockets and so on.
At my school the girls who do have backpacks wear them with the straps really long, so they hang down by their bums, which is very bad for their backs. Messenger bags would be better than badly worn backpacks.
Roxy have some nice backpacks reduced in the sale.
Key point for dd is that NO ONE else has the same bag
On the days she needs next to nothing she takes something very impractical and trendy, but as she does loads of sport, she has found the good old Roxy backpack which she has had for 3 years invaluable.
