Wheeled backpacks are essentially traditional backpacks with built-in inline skate wheels and retractable handles. They are ideal for school-age children who need to bring heavy books but do not want to carry them on their backs, and children who have back and shoulder problems.
Types of Wheeled Backpacks
Kinds of Wheeled Backpacks include the following:
Standard wheeled backpacks
The inline skate wheels and extendable, telescoping handles of standard wheel backpacks cannot be removed.
3-1 wheeled backpacks
3-1 wheeled backpacks can be transformed in three different bags – a traditional carry-on backpack, a day pack, and a wheeled terminal backpack.
Choosing Wheeled Backpacks (Buying tips)
Grab handles. To carry your wheeled backpack whichever way you want, choose one with a grab handle on top, at the sides, and at the bottom.
Pockets. Choose a wheeled backpack with numerous inner and outer pockets for storing and organizing small items. Make sure the pockets are made with zipper, Velcro, or button closure systems to keep the contents from spilling out.
