/u/WeAreBonnaroo would a see-thru mesh backpack like this be allowed?

u/idealdrugs · 6 pointsr/malefashionadvice

here's the same backpack on amazon with better pictures and a couple of reviews:

u/ADelicateOrange · 5 pointsr/anime

I don't see how its different from any other Japanese School bag that you see in most other anime that include children* ala Miss Kobayashi's Dragon Maid

I found an Amazon Link

Is owl a brand? You have it capitalized like it is. Or do you mean just general school supplies with pictures of owls on them?

I have no idea where to go if it's a brand, but Urban Outfitters downtown usually has some random owl-patterned things. Indigo was also good for those kind of things, but I think they're closed now, so maybe Chapters?

And for binders you can always get the ones with a translucent pocket over the cover that you can slip a sheet of paper into, and customize it with whatever pictures you want. That's what I did all through high school - much cheaper than buying new binders every year.

I also found this if you're not adverse to online shopping.

yodo Upgraded Kids Insulated Toddler Backpack with Safety Harness Leash and Name Label - Playful Preschool Kids Lunch Bag, Dinosaur

I just got this one off Amazon. I will say its slightly too big. It doesnt tighten enough around him but it doesnt slip off either. Honestly, I was prepared to get disapproving stares but a lot of people smiled and commented on how adorable he was with it. It's been a life saver because he doesnt want to be in the stroller anymore. And hes been much more well behaved while out!

Can't you buy something like this and use that to carry your food? I don't know anything about it, but it had 4.5 stars with a lot of reviews and was fairly inexpensive. I'd make a lot of food that was good cold.

Also, do you go back to a central location at any point during the day or are you out from the beginning to the end? Could you store food in a larger cooler or a fridge that you stop at once a day so you didn't have to carry all of your food with you all day? If not, I would recommend finding something lightweight to package the food in. Carrying 5lbs of tupperware containers would be a pain.

You should look into what backpackers do. Here is an article about carrying food while backpacking. They normally aren't planning on carrying ice and are going for multiple days, so you could switch out a lot of the dried backpacker focused food for more fresh stuff, but keep the same ideals in mind when planning what you'll be carrying.

I can’t find the exact one, but I use a backpack like this one. The clear front zippered pouch allows you to keep your pins displayed and protected.

Edit: added a word

u/Jetsamjunk · 3 pointsr/mylittlepony

If you have around a $50 budget for a 4 year old, I would suggest a multi-gift deal, like getting some kind of art kit but I'd say the better idea would be some sort of pony themed bag as a base and then you can put other stuff inside it and the bag is a thing the kid can use for a while.

4 year olds are at the phase in their development where they should be drawing more and developing their pattern skills, so maybe some crayons and a bound sketchbook (4 yr olds don't really have the motor skills to rip paper off crayons if they break, so this set is good bc they can still use them easily if it breaks, plus it being in a case will help even if they eventually end up in the kid's bag, plus this is a pretty good brand).

I think a phonics box would also be a great addition for a 4 year old! Also socks are always a must have in the homeless community, so why not some pony themed socks they sell these in every major department store.


If I had a $50 budget for a 4 year old who liked my little ponies that's what I'd get them.

A MLP bag, good crayons, a sketchbook, a phonics case and some socks.

Hope this helps!

This backpack would make my life so much easier!! It's on my Practical list.

I currently have a messenger style backpack, but it only fits about 2 textbook-sized books at a time, and it's falling apart. I've had it for 3 years now. Also, my primary transportation to school will be a motorcycle, so the messenger bag really won't work at all for that.

I'm going to school at the University of Hawaii at Manoa, and I'm majoring in Physics! I'm absolutely thrilled to be able to go here. Their science programs are all fantastic and I'm SO LUCKY! I have 2 more years left, so I should graduate right as my husband's military contract runs out.

Wish me luck! And thank you so much for the contest! <3

Okay, here we go. But first I have to say, I don’t know /u/overlyapologeticguy very well, but every time I see his posts they a) make me smile and b) want to be a better person. So I feel like he deserves everything and more! I hope to get to know him better on the thread :) (This does not mean I won’t go weird with the suggestions!)

I'm a huge fan of the Ogio backpack. I have two. One I've had for almost two years (Like 1 year and 10 months), and it's still going strong. I use it for work, and for a large laptop i need to use for work. I have had another one for 7 years: and it still works great.

Of course, none of these work for a 5yo, they are way way too big. Might I suggest one of these:

Got one for my 4 yo, and it works great for preschool, it's well made BUT, it might not be big enough for normal school. You have to fold a standard piece of paper.

My wife has a Jansport backpack she's used for like 20 years, and it's still being used. But I can't speak from personal experience. That might be the way to go as well.

  1. I really didn't think I had anything that was gray!! But this is! And so is this! WOOO!

  2. The rain in Spain falls mainly on the plain. But I've never been there.

  3. Not crazy, but still, unusual, right?

  6. Fifteen cents.

  7. We use this for some of the smaller cats at work!! Put a little treat or some whole fresh catnip, and AWAAAAY THEY GO!!

  8. These. so freaking gorgeous!

  9. Just to see and hear Tom Cruise sing. Or Alec Baldwin sing. Or really, the whole thing goes back and forth from awesome to awesome-er, as long as you don't have a lot of expectations.

  10. If you can hunt for food in silence, the zombies won't know where you are!!

  11. This is on my dream list for the hubs to see. My computer is dead and I have to use the kiddo's. I miss my photo editing software, all my files, etc...

  12. I don't believe this, but I have absolutely NO add-on items on any of my wishlists. wow.

  13. See #11. I'm desperate to have a computer back. DESPERATE!

  14. I could carry a breadbox in this thing.

  15. Totes smaller.

  16. Sandalwood smells incredible.


  18. you have to have an awesome pencil case to go back to school!! Or, maybe this one?

  19. RAoA is my favorite obsession. And yeah, that's on my WL!!

    Yes. Cherries. need them now.

u/_wantanewbackpack · 2 pointsr/malefashionadvice

I'm hunting for a new backpack, preferably made of waxed canvas.

I've found a bunch of cheaper canvas backpacks with the right style on Amazon. Sadly, the majority of the comments share the same point that it has cheap stitching, or that the clasp are flimsy and are easy to break.

Does anyone know of a place to buy a backpack with a similar/identical style but are in a better quality? I'd like one that can last me for a long time.


Example of backpack style:

u/tvolosyn · 2 pointsr/stevenuniverse

Thanks!! I got the backpack on amazon but it says its not available right now, which is odd. Cheeseburger Backpack

I made the shield from this foam board i found at home depot. I cut the edges off to make it round, then use a sand paper to give the shield the rounded edges. its SUPER light, which is so nice.

u/Gwyntorias · 2 pointsr/mildlyinteresting

Like others had said, we do use the SkipHop backpack. They are cute, affordable, and durable. Decent storage too--we actively make our little one carry her snacks and diapers in there, haha.

u/SFTX · 2 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

I wanted to post an image but couldn't so here's the url. This is a Danielle Nicole licensed Disney product.

We got a regular harness and also a backpack harness for our 19-month-old. He wears his backpack to walk into daycare and knows that means we're going somewhere. We used it when we went to Disney in December, and when we went to the zoo in September, and both went really well. We both prefer to hold his hand but being a toddler he's still inclined to drop hand and run, so having that tether helped a ton.

Lots of people have that "Oh my god, why would you put your child on a leash! It's not a dog!" Screw the haters, it means my kid is never more than three feet from me in a crowded place.

u/AyeAyeCaptain · 1 pointr/Parenting

We bought a Skip Hop Little Kid backpack backpack. It's made of canvas material, and we've crammed in construction size paper (I'd imagine a folder would fit too), a toddler size towel, sheet & blanket, change of clothes, two small containers of food and a dolly. We've had it for a year and a half and see it lasting a couple more years.

If you're concerned about the size, size up one. That should last your child for the next 3 years.

u/14fore · 1 pointr/golf

Get a cooler that looks like a backpack. This one holds over a case.

u/Tokidokiloki · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

Of course! It's so adorable, too. It has little Totoros on the lining! <33 Here you go!

u/dizzyvonblue · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

First off you have my sympathies, for your loss. And some internet hugs! I've never lost anyone so I can't say I understand, but I know it hurts and im sorry.

I included a bunch of things to represent what I think people might have on their wishlists. If I win Sort My Priorities and surprise me!

Japanese Candy kit I'm sure snacks are a big hit on peoples WLs. I want one of these specifically for my son.

Backpack/rucksack Classes are starting back up for many including me so these might be in high demand soon.

New Shoes Again classes are starting soon, if not for parents maybe for their kids. OR maybe people need new shoes to prepare for a climate change. I live in Indiana and weather is insane, so I try to always have boots and flats.

Seeds I have a ton of seeds on my WLs. They are usually cheap, and they make my yard pretty!

Thanks so much for hosting, and good luck everyone. I wish your Debit card super speed on its journey to you!

At that age I was always into showing my love of my favorite things on my stuff sooooo I thought she might like this

I bet people wanted to give me a purple nurple when I was a junior because I carried a Spongebob backpack.'s true.

u/call_me_cthulhu_ · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

this is the first thing I thought of when I read she likes pandas. I also think this is adorable or maybe this one. This is slightly more than $25 (only by a couple of cents) but I love it for myself haha. If you don't think she'll like that one there's this version. Last but not least, maybe she'll enjoy this so she can show it off.

purple nurple

u/flying_dutchmaster · 0 pointsr/adventuretime

a little pricey, but if you're going for gold you need the backpack and sword!
