Deuter Junior Backpack

Dueter Packs | Back to School Gear

Backpacks are a necessary for school and, with kids having having to lug around more school supplies than I carry to work, it is crucial for them to have a good packpack. Let’s face it, we aren’t going to to run in cheap shoes, hike with a cheap pack or ride a department store bike, so why should your kids use gear that isn’t fit? A good pack is also great fun when having adventures in the playground, going for a swim in the lake or heading out into the mountains. The Junior from Deuter, has all the grown up features with its fresh new design and is for children aged 5 and above. With new, playful colors, there is something to make the eyes of any girl or boy light up. Best of all it is built with the same quality and design as all Deuter packs including flexible aluminum stays, contoured back and anatomically formed shoulder straps. It retails for $39.00, weighs in under 1lb and is able to hold 1100 cubic inches of gear or school supplies. The Deuter Junior gets an A+.

No matter what you put this bottle through, by the end of the day your beverage will still be cold. Added perks include: money being saved by not using bottled water, there is less plastic waste, and we all know there is always one kid in school that puts their mouth all over the drinking fountain.

New Balance Kids’ 890v5 Running Shoes

New Balence Running Shoes | Back to School Gear

Actually it doesn’t matter what brand of running shoe you go with, just make sure it is quality. A kid can spend 30 to 45 minutes a day running, jumping, kicking a ball and what ever else their little minds can come up with, and that does not include what they do when they get home. When you think about it, chances are they run more then most 5k’ers do on a daily basis. So why give them crappy shoes? Yeah we know they will out grow them but that is still not a good excuse. Any quality running shoe is great, although we prefer New Balance Preschool 890v5. This fun, lightweight and colorful running shoe will be a favorite part of their wardrobe. Mesh upper materials and synthetic overlays work together for causal comfort, supporting the feet while enhancing breathability. An easy closure system with a no-tie design allows a quick entry and secure fit. Rubber on the outsole ensures traction, while the foam midsole absorbs impact.
