We have another great company to spotlight today for our Back-to-School Blowout and I can’t wait to tell you guys all about them, but first, if you haven’t had a chance to check out our other back-to-school giveaways make sure you enter now…there are lots of great prizes to be won!  All current BTSB and regular giveaways are located on our sidebar for easy access!


One of the most important purchases for back-to-school is the backpack, I mean, a great backpack can mean the difference between sitting at the “cool” table at lunch and eating lunch by yourself—alright, it’s not that serious, but finding the perfect backpack is definitely an essential part of back-to-school shopping and helping find the perfect backpack can most definitely help you rise to “Super Mom” status in 2.5 seconds—I promise!

When I shop for a backpack for my kids there are 3 criteria that I use:

  • Is it the appropriate size for their needs?
  • How comfortable is the backpack on them?
  • Is it “cool” enough that my kids would approve?

Now, while there might not be an exact science to finding the perfect backpack, it is important to shop around so that you find a backpack that fits your child’s needs while also being super comfortable.  I love shopping online for everything, it’s so much more convenient than shopping in-store with 4 kids and shopping for a backpack online is no different than shopping for anything else, it actually makes a little more sense to shop online at a store that specializes in backpacks and other bags, because the selection is so much better than in-store and that’s just one of the many reasons why I love! has been the #1 online bags retailer since 1999 for a reason—they have every bag you can imagine and are dedicated to making the customer’s shopping experience as pleasant and easy as possible and that’s most definitely something that makes this busy mommy very happy.  In addition to carrying a complete line of premium and popular brands, including Samsonite, JanSport, The North Face and Eagle Creek, also carries every kind of bag you can imagine including backpacks, computer bags, carry-ons and even handbags, that makes it super easy to find exactly what you’re looking for on one site, which again, makes it very appealing to us busy moms! 

We received the eBags Bookworm Kid’s backpack in  Captain Camo recently to review and it proved to be perfect for Lil Man and first grade.  The Bookworm Kid’s backpack is available in 5 different colors and is a steal at just $14.99!  It always seems to be a struggle to find a backpack that is the right size, they all either seem to be much too small or far too big, but the Bookworm backpack is the perfect size for my six year old.  It’s lightweight, durable and offers lots of room for all of his things, without being too big and bulky.  My son loves that the backpack is camo and I love that it has a lot of space and is easy for him to zip and unzip and lug around.  It’s also hard to ignore the price, you can’t really find a nice backpack for less than $20 so the under $15 price tag makes this backpack a homerun! 


(In case you’re wondering, yes, he does have on socks with flip flops—he refused to put his shoes on to take the picture—what are ya gonna do?)

If you’re looking for backpack for your little ones this year for back to school, I definitely suggest checking out what has to offer!  Make sure to Like eBags on Facebook and Follow eBags on Twitter for the latest news and deals!

  1. I've used several times over the past couple of years and I have found that they are one of the best online bag retailers. I have never been disappointed with my purchases from them. Great review!
