It seems like the school year just ended, but we’re already thinking Back to School shopping and promotions. We looked at trends to see what students are going to want to carry around with them when Fall comes and have identified a few items beyond the usual shopping list.

Backpacks with extra functionality like 15858_Apple_4cearbud holes, side pockets for water bottles, extra handles for easy clip-on storage, etc are highly sought after.

A great idea for students who have a lot of small odds and ends to keep up with.  Great for college students to keep up with flash drives, power cords, and other small items so they don’t end up in the bottom of the backpack.




Clip it on! This water bottles features a pop up, drink through, spill proof lid and attached carabiner for clip on storage.  Great option for athletes and mobile hydrators alike. The metal carabiner is durable- prefect for attaching to bags or backpacks.
