Just in time for back-to-school, two SWMO moms had the opportunity to review the new backpack line from Carhartt. While this is a sponsored post, all opinions are our own.
Note from Kelli and Mindi: Thank you Carhartt Kids for letting us share your product with our fellow SWMO mommas! What a fun way to kick-off the back-to-school season! Moms, to purchase your Carhartt Kids backpacks, lunch boxes and more, click here. You know when you purchase a Carhartt product, it will last!
Thoughts from Kelli, mom to three girly girls and co-founder of www.SouthwestMissouriMoms(dot)com:
Well, today I saw it. Yes, the “it” I am referring to is the mile-long school supply list that seems to reappear this time of year. Is it already that time!?
Of course, topping the list is a backpack. That means I will also be purchasing a lunch box to match. I don’t know about you, but I am tired of spending a small fortune on bags and lunch boxes that are poor quality and don’t hold up all year long.
When we were given the opportunity to review the new backpacks and lunch boxes from Carhartt Kids, I could hardly wait! Finally, a product that will last all year long!
We all know how durable the trusted Carhartt brand is with their pants, jackets, shirts and much more. They recently introduced a line of backpacks!? And did I mention, they are cute! We love all their adorable options!
As soon as the package landed on my door-step and my girls ripped into it. My older two started fighting over who gets the “cool” backpack. When the package arrived in the mail they knew what was inside and couldn’t wait to open it right away.
They LOVED the bright colors and size! I loved the material. I could tell right away this would be a backpack that I wouldn’t need to replace in the middle of the year. Thank goodness!
Moms, I know you can relate. About mid-way through the school year that once beautiful backpack now looks like a stained, torn, worn out bag that you just want to throw away. But gosh, the money we have already spent on school supplies makes me not want to go and buy yet another backpack. With the Carhartt bag, this will not be an issue.
Kelli’s review: sturdy, durable, affordable, easy to zip, wearable fabric, great size for everything and anything they need to take to school.
Kids review: Easy to put on, pretty cool, easy to zip. To quote my daughter, “it has a spot for my water bottle,” and “my friends will love it!”
So needless to say, I will be buying a second Carhartt backpack for my other daughter!
Thoughts from Tiffany, mom of four rough and rowdy boys:
Being a mom to four boys, I need a good quality sturdy product. My boys are constantly on the go and we get the MOST use out of a product–no doubt! When I think of Carhartt, I think of well-made and durable. Two things I need more of in my life!
I couldn’t wait to try the new backpack line from Carhartt Kids. As you can imagine, I spend a small fortune each year on backpacks and lunch boxes and purchasing another set of backpacks mid-way through the year due to poor quality is not an option for me. I need to purchase a quality product at a great price that will last all year. And it’s even better if my boys can use the backpack for a couple years! Carhartt products will no doubt last!
I was super excited to try out this product! I really loved how lightweight the backpack is compared to other backpacks we own! It is the perfect size for our school supplies, but not too big and bulky.
The bag had a couple of pockets which are super handy! The front small pocket is just the right size for snacks. The best part about this pocket is it is placed high enough that snacks won’t get smashed when my kiddo is sitting in a chair or on the bus ride to school. Plus, the inside zipper has an easy location to help keep track of lunch money! We don’t want that to get misplaced!
The pencil holder, however, isn’t deep enough for the pocket to zip when pencils are inside. We were using wooden, number 2 pencils, but mechanical pencils zip just fine! We passed along this feedback to Carhartt and they have assured us that they will adjust the pencil loops for all future products.
