Maybe it is your child’s first school bag or perhaps the old one just needs replacing. Whatever the case, it is time to go shopping for school bags in Singapore.
We round up some (inexhaustive) suggestions of where you can buy school bags in Singapore.
Shopping For School Bags in Singapore
Dr Kong may be best known for its “healthy” footware products but, as a brand that focuses on spine health, it also sells pressure free school bags. These bags range from small to extra large size. Dr Kong’s school bags come in a variety of designs and are said to reduce neck, shoulder and back pressure. Bags cost between $39.90 to $89.90. If you are keen to try the Dr Kong school bags in Singapore, there are Dr Kong store locations in Hougang, Yishun, Changi, Jurong and Woodlands.
IMPACT is another brand that offers spinal protection school bags. These bags are generally lightweight to reduce stress on the spine while promoting better posture. One of the bag’s features is large zippered openings – to make it easier to access the books stored inside. IMPACT bags typically retail for over $100. To try out these school bags in Singapore, visit Ergoworks showrooms at Marina Square, Centrepoint and Causeway Point.
Smiggle backpacks are highly popular because of their colourful designs. The backpacks, which can serve as school bags, range from around $40 to $60. These bags come with zipper compartments and adjustable shoulder straps. Perhaps a plus point is that your child can get some Smiggle stationary to go along with the bag. A drawback is that your child runs the risk of encountering other students with the same Smiggle bag in school!
Royal Sporting House
Royal Sporting House carries the Jansport brand of bags. These come in various sizes and designs and make great general purpose bags. One thing to take note of in relation to Jansport bags is that not all of them come with the netted pocket by the side can be used to carry a water bottle on the outside. If this feature is important to you, you may wish to consider Jansport’s Big Student Backpack ($69) which has two main compartments, plus the side pocket.
In the recent past, Anello bags were trending as school bags in Singapore. Hailing from Japan, the backpacks, with their distinctive zippered design, allow easy access to the contents within. Anello bags can be purchased from major retailers around Singapore.
