Style & Function for Back-to-School #BackToBackpacks

There are certain things my kids get new at the beginning of every school year. A new backpack is one of these things. They seem to be really rough on them throughout the year and often need replacing. But they also grow and their needs grow. What they carry around, their style and their wants all factor into getting their new backpacks. We look at it as a fresh start to a new year.

My youngest loves school and can not wait for it to start-up again. Her brother on the other hand, not so much. But they are eight years apart and he gets way more homework than her. She has been super excited about back-to-school shopping and has been requesting a backpack with the straps for quite some time. So when we had the opportunity to check out these ones, she could not wait.

With lots of room and many choices in colours and styles, WillLand Outdoors has something for everyone.

The larger grey back pack is the Deliziosa. It has padding on the back and is great for teens who may carry more books for longer spurts.

Both have a padded lining to separate a laptop or whatever you may need in its own area.

The red is the Romantica. It looks similar to the grey but is smaller without the padding on the back. Better for younger, smaller kids.

A good backpack should be no larger than your child’s back. Take 2 measurements of your child’s back and use those for the maximum height and width of the backpack. It is important that the backpack is not too heavy as well.

Have you picked up a backpack for back-to-school yet? Which one of these would your kids love most?


This is a compensated post, All opinions are my own 


  1. I have the red one for my grandson,a great quality bag !

  2. I love the look of the Deliziosa, it looks like a great bag not only for kids but also professionals looking for a good commuter bag.

  3. OH. Those are really nice quality and timeless. My kids backpacks are pure garbage this year.

  4. Heather Lynne says

    I love the padding!! If you’re wearing your backpack a lot with a fair bit of weight in it, padding can make a big difference!

  5. My daughters are in middle school and these stylish backpacks are perfect. Their school does not have lockers, so that extra padding would certainly come in handy.

  6. mapleleafmommy says

    A decent backpack is such an important part of heading to school. Love the back padding on these bags. I’m eyeing the Victoria style. Thanks for the intro to this brand.

  7. the padding on these is very nice. So many books to carry around, at least when they are younger, now its all on their computers…

  8. I think the Delizosa would be a great option for my kiddos. I love backpacks and agree the kids go thru them too quickly, so I plan to invest better this year in one. This looks like a great brand to test out!

  9. What great backpacks! We are lucky that last year the backpacks I bought are still good for another year. I only had to buy one out of 4, so that’s always a great thing! These backpacks have great padding as well!

  10. Yes we have two of these this year. The best thing about these backpacks for me is that they last. The two we got last year are still in great shape actually. My older daughter this year needed a larger one though for her high school books. And we got the Forte Freedom for travel carryon luggage. LOVE these great backpacks.

  11. It’s good to have a great good quality backpack, one that is going to be sturdy and hold all the books and the right size for the body as well!!

  12. These are great backpack! I love the colours, the styles and are objectionable they are.
