My thoughts have turned towards backpacks lately, and not for the reason you might suspect. Sure, the kids are getting ready to head back to school (actually, some have already returned to the classroom), but that doesn’t mean that backpacks are strictly for the youngster set. In fact, I consider myself a fan of them. But aren’t backpacks for transporting books to classrooms for those in grades between kindergarten and college? Not so! Backpacks are wonderful because they can be jammed with all sorts of stuff, yet keep the weight off of your arms and ensure that your hands are free – which is great when you’re in a large amusement park with a set of twin boys in tow. The point is, you can keep all of your important stuff – wallet, medication, bottled water, sunglasses, extra clothing, and cell phone – safely on your back and still be able to maneuver through crowds and hold your child’s hand. Gimmees has a lot of different promotional backpacks to pick from to meet all of your needs including Daytripper backpacks, High Sierra Impact Daypacks, and Ripstop Computer Sling Bags. Anyway, like I said, I am a backpack lover. And, I’d like to give a big thank you to the late Asher “Dick” Kelty, who is credited with creating lightweight backpacks.
