Roonga Announces Picks for Quality Low Cost Backpacks
Los Altos, California -
Roonga, Inc., a company based in Los Altos, CA, that helps non-profits, has recently published their recommendations for quality low cost backpacks. Leveraging previous experience asking actual students to try out various low cost backpacks, Roonga developed criteria for evaluating low cost backpacks at various price points.
As a result of their evaluations, Roonga developed a number of recommendations for maximizing the value of low cost backpacks. These include looking for the better quality zippers; looking for reinforced stitching at the top of the shoulder strap; checking the bottom of the backpack for reinforcement; and skipping the water bottle holder or at least not making it a priority because kids can also put the water bottle in the main backpack pocket.
In the blog post, Roonga provided recommendations for backpacks in two price price points: $5 $10. At the $5 price point, Roonga selected 16” and 18” Eaglesport backpacks, as well as 17” Arctic Star backpacks. At the $10 price point, Roonga selected the 17” Sherpa backpack and the 18”premium Eaglesport backpack. Detailed descriptions of the features of these backpacks can be found on their blog post.
