School Bags for Girls: Buying Tips

Some of the most important aspects to buying the right school bag for your girl are:

Size: we know from experience that bigger is not always better in this instance. Don’t forget that bags are measured in litres too.

We recommend below 24l for primary school and above 24l for secondary.

Compartments: You want space to hold water bottles, pencil cases, a lunchbox, maybe a laptop or tablet.

So look out for these.

Material: It’s a long year and school bags will go through the works with excited girls, so you need good-quality material!

Don’t forget some comfortable straps too!

For all-round versatility, you can’t beat Jansport.

They are large, have many compartments and are arguably the most stylish school bags.

These are 34l capacity, have a laptop holder and multiple pockets, which may be more suitable to girls in secondary school.

The Under Armour Hustle school bag is built for durability.

So for those more active girls, this water resistance and stain resistant finished school bag is really popular.

Premium Option

With a 31L capacity, The North Face Sunder Backpack is a spacious, streamlined pack you can take pretty much anywhere.

At 31.5 litres it is one of the bigger options, and one of the more expensive, but you are buying serious quality.

The backpack features a padded sleeve to protect your laptop or tablet from bumps and falls and sports a stand-up design to keep items securely inside.
