Really Cool Wheeled Backpacks

Big Book Bag

Today I want to introduce you to multipurpose wheeled backpacks.  If you have watched students carrying around their book bags over the past 20 years, you most likely have noticed that the bags are becoming more and more stuffed.  Finally, there is a solution to that.  No, this will not make your spelling bee/chessmaster son a don juan over night, but at least he wont look like this kid (<–) anymore:

The High Sierra Freewheel Wheeled Book Bag Backpack (geez, what a mouthful) is made to take the load off your back, and hopefully make your kid look like less of a nerd.  After all, all the popular kids always looked great carrying their cool backpacks, even if there was very little in them.  This way, the 40 books your kid brings home won’t give them any permanent back disabilities.

I call this a multipurpose backpack because this is the exact type of backpack that I would use as a travel backpack.  Im not talking about outdoors backpacks, more for a backpack you can shove under the seat in front of you on an airplane.

Being able to wheel this puppy around the terminal makes sure you don’t whack people when turning from side to side to find where your gate is.  And if you do hit someone, you can always defend yourself from their oncoming ninja attack by breaking off the telescoping handle.  If I had a nickel for every time I had to fight off ninjas…

What people are saying about this wheeled backpack? 

  • The bag is very well made; the wheels are stable, sturdy and I like the handle.
  • Bought this for my ten year old son. It’s tough and well built- more than enough room for his school books and supplies. It’s a little heavy as a back pack, but the wheels work great. The retractable handle also works very well.
  • I use this backpack everyday for work.  I use it to carry 6 computer books. This backpack has saved my back.
  • After two back operations and all the tech equipment I like to carry with me, I was looking for a rolling backpack for the airplane. This one is perfect for me. It has lots of space, but fits under the seat for Southwest airlines.
