I love using backpack to carry my stuff. I find them very comfortable to use especially when I am travelling or when I carrying heavy stuff. I prefer to carry my stuff using a backpack as it is handier and more comfortable than hand bags. I don't have strong hands and they easily get tire especially when I carry heavy things. As far as I remember, I have been using backpacks since my primary school. Now as a mother, I still use backpacks and so as my kids.
Actually, I bought this backpack for my 11-year old son when he complained that he old backpack was already dirty and messy. Unfortunately he did not like it and asked me to buy another one after one day of use. I could understand him because it got very dirty at the end of the day. I bought a light coloured one which attracts dirt very easily.
I end up using the backpack for my own use. It was blessing in disguise that my son did not like it because I do. It is very light making it practical to use especially when I am carrying heavy stuffs. It has padded straps making it very comfortable on my shoulder to carry.
