While zipper backpacks may be the most popular kind for kids in school. There is a distinct advantage to drawstring backpacks that makes them worth considered. The biggest reason is they break much less often.
Backpacks come in a variety of designs, forms, shapes and colors. Without a doubt the zipper backpack with all its compartments and handy features is the most popular form of back pack today but if you are considering something simpler, quicker and easier, the Drawstring Backpack may be the right solution for you.
The Drawstring Backpack is a fundamentally simple, yet clever design allowing you to close the bag with a simple pull of the strings. You open the back pack is just as easy.
The backpack’s main attribute is not its look or design, but its functionality. The backpack is ideal for quick packing when heading towards the beach or the gym. The design is often synthetic, such as Nylon or Acrylic and is broadly considered more durable than the zipper back pack. For this reason, it is convenient and safe to throw in a pair of sneakers, and a gym outfit without risking wearing out the bag.
In many parts of Europe, the drawstring backpack has become a near standardized item used to bring clothes for gym class, also known as Physical Education. Much like American school children are avid users of the regular backpack for carrying school supplies, books, lap top computers and calculators, European school children use a draw string back pack to pack and bring gym clothes to Physical Education. In many European countries the word “gym bag” is often the same as “drawstring backpack”
The phenomenon has resulted in the development of a range of Drawstring back packs in different designs. For each semester, and during back-to-school marketing campaigns, retailers introduce new models, designs and colors. Smaller versions similar to a purse are worn as fashion accessories by European woman.
The Drawstring backpack is definitely for you who are on the go and need a bag that packs quickly. The fact that is has string for sealing the main compartment also means that you can choose to use the supportive string to carry the bag by throwing it casually over the shoulder – or carry it by traditional means by using the regular cushioned shoulder straps.
The drawstring backpack is generally smaller than a regular zipper back pack and fits perfectly under desk or in a school locker, or under the seat in front of you on the school bus.
