Kids have plenty they need to carry, so why not give them the best to do it with? Our kids' backpacks are all your child needs to tote their essentials, from mini backpacks to school bags with laptop sleeves.
Ultra-Comfortable Kids' Backpacks
Kids' health is important, which is why we've taken care to make their backpacks as comfy as we can. Padded shoulder straps keep things feeling light and stop a heavy load from digging in. There's plenty of room for their lunch bag and books, but the smaller pack sizes make it harder for your little ones to over pack. Adjustable straps let them get the fit just right for maximum comfort on the walk to school.
Looking for something a little bigger that won't weigh their shoulders down? Try a rolling backpack or rolling duffel. Shop our new arrivals to see what’s new and trending.
All You Need in a School Backpack
When back to school time rolls around, send your little one off to elementary school or middle school with all they need to tackle the day. The main compartment offers enough room for a lunch box, water bottle, school books, pencil cases, and more. Inside and outside, zippered and mesh pockets let them organize their school supplies. The Youth Mini Recon Backpack even has a personalized interior name label. They'll never lose their bag again. Plus, each bag looks great with their new jacket or fleece.
If the littlest members of your family want to match their older siblings, the Recon Squash bag doubles as a great toddler backpack or even a diaper bag.
Perfect as an Outdoor and School Bag
We wouldn't be The North Face if your child's bag didn't also do great on the trail. Our kids' backpacks keep up the durability, even when put to the test. Feel free to camp, hike, and visit the beach to your heart's content. Side pockets can hold trail snacks and gloves just as easily as school projects and pencils. Now your kids can head out in all weather in a water-resistant rain jacket. Just tighten the drawstring, pack their bag, and they're ready for adventure.
What are the Best Backpacks for Kids?
The best backpacks for kids are designed for smaller frames and lighter weights. Since a school book bag should only weigh about 10-15% of your child's body weight, they're not meant to be overstuffed. Luckily, our bags are designed with kids in mind, so they can have a comfortable carry all day.
