Rolling backpacks represent a very comfortable and useful way to pack the things you need for a short two or three day trip. The big advantage of rolling backpacks is that you no longer have to bear all the burden on the back and shoulders since these devices can be rolled at will and carried as you see fit for the circumstances.

However, wearing the rolling backpacks like rucksacks is definitely possible and sometimes highly necessary particularly if you come across rugged or marshy terrain that makes rolling the backpack impossible. Most models include a retractable handle for such situations.
Rolling backpacks also make a wonderful and highly safe choice for school children. The popularity of such rolling backpacks increased when statistics indicated an alarmingly high number of children treated of spinal injuries caused by the wearing of a too heavy backpack. Experts recommend that the backpack should not be more than 20% of the child’s total body weight. Parents are the ones to ask at the school attended by the child whether there are any rules against the use of rolling backpacks. In certain institutions they are not allowed because of the tripping hazard, but sometimes rules do change.
Always check the load rating of the rolling backpacks before making a purchase: you should consider the age of the child or adolescent since the older he/she is the more gadgets and heavy books there will be in the backpack. Meeting the child’s or student’s needs is the main concern under such circumstances. The look of the rolling backpacks is definitely important, particularly if you also want to match the fashion trends. Teenagers will surely avoid buying something that looks like a carry-on luggage. Such rolling backpacks are appropriate for adults, but younger users will surely object to their use.
Most rolling backpacks are also designed so as to be carried on the back too. It is good to try and see how it fits before buying it; the ideal alternative way of carrying rolling backpacks is two inches above the waist. Moreover, if the handle is pulled, it should match the height of the user meaning that you should be able to stand upright and comfortable when using it. There surely are limitations to rolling backpacks particularly on rough terrain or when you are passing through narrow areas. Thus, even though they are great for sidewalks, park alleys and aisles, in winter you could have troubles because of the snow.
