Backpacks for elementary students

Living in the technological age, the emphasis is on making pretty much everything we use smaller. The product we use to call people, the machine we use to compute, the device we use to read as opposed to a book… even our cars (take a look down your street and see how few big, bulky cars there are nowadays, compared to just 10 or 15 years ago).

Most things are geared towards convenience, and convenience normally means smaller things that can fit in neater, smaller spaces.

One area where this is not the case, is surely in travelling. After all, while our computers, Kindles and smartphones may now be smaller, the paradox is that in a world of consumerism, we probably carry more with us now than at any time in the past.

The average suitcase, then, carries about as much bulk as ever it did, and this can make for the familiar, awkward experience getting from A to B (particularly over long distances) as ever it did.

In the travel suitcase stakes, convenience should be key to your purchasing decision – anything else should be considered later.

But help is at hand. If you’re looking for a particular suitcase, you’re no longer restricted to the “stuff everything in, sit on the top, jam it shut, pick up and go” type of the past.

The average suitcase may not be any smaller these days, but while it lags behind much other modern-day items in it’s small size, it’s likely to be more than a match in sophistication.

Let’s cut to the chase: if you look for a suitcase in today’s market, you’ll find two-wheeled types, four-wheeled types, multi-directional types, and expandable types.

There’s also a plethora of stylish, beautifully designed cases out there, although in my experience, this should always be your second priority behind convenience when finding the one for you.

Consider your physical health. If you struggle to carry, unaided, heavy items, but the suitcase with the style you love is begging you to buy it, ask yourself whether it’ll be a practical investment before doing so. Can it be pulled rather than simply carried? What about lifting it from a car, or carrying it up steps or up an incline?

In my experience, travelling’s not about winning a contest in looking as stylish as possible – it’s about getting from one place to another with the least amount of hassle (and mangled up muscles).

Therefore, when looking for a travel suitcase, always – without exception – find a design that’s practical first (hint: a good, two-wheeled pullable, expandable suitcase is surely the most popular out there, and for a reason – convenience). Once you’ve identified this, then you should start to look for a particular design or material that’s “you”.

First-hand experience has taught me how overwhelming it can be to plan for a trip and often it’s the little things that can contribute to a stressful situation.
