I have this Levenger convertible backpack and love it for commuting. It’s on the small side, but can hold a few letter-size file folders and a tablet. (A small laptop would probably also fit.) The strap can be reconfigured into a shoulder strap, or removed completely.
Mele said he would have his guidance counselors survey teachers for students who appear to be the most needy of backpacks and classroom supplies.
I never comment on this site, but I have a Henri Bendel Jetsetter convertible backpack that’s super useful. It converts from a backpack to a cross-body and is big enough for me to get my small laptop and files in. The only thing I would change is to make the top straps slightly longer so I could get them over my shoulder like a satchel. I’m not sure it will work if you’re carrying a stack of files a foot tall, but in that case I’d probably drive or cab it.
Backpacks are a must for students, and with school back in session that means kids are wearing their backpacks. But there are dangers if those backpacks are not carried properly. To discuss that and more, is Doctor Julio Martinez-Silvestrini, the Medical Director of Outpatient Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation at Baystate Rehab Care.
|We’ve featured Bendel’s Jetsetter backpack before, and this Gramercy Convertible Backpack is another one to consider — it’s super stylish and looks great as a satchel, but also converts to a backpack and a crossbody. At 11.5″H X 15.5″W X 5.5″D, it should be big enough for letter-sized papers as well. It’s $450 at Bendel’s. Gramercy Convertible Backpack|
