  • Stephen Joseph quilted backpack review

    This is a review of Stephen Joseph quilted backpacks.  These backpacks are very cute and made from sturdy solid cotton quilting.  Our four year old son choose the Stephen Joseph race car backpack to start school with this year.  Lets look at the features a little deeper.  If you have a question not answered below, please post in the comments!

     

    • Two sizes: 11" x 13" x 4" (classic) and 13" x 13" x 4" (premium)
    • Larger size just holds a three ring binder
    • 100% cotton
    • Magnetic snap
    • Drawstring closure
    • Nylon lining inside

     

    Premium versus classic
    The quilted backpacks come in two versions - classic and premium.  The premium backpacks are a little bigger (two inches wider) but also have more detailed fabrics, and more appliqué and embroidery as shown in the picture below.  We added the personalization, but you can see the detailed appliqué corduroy fabric in the premium backpack to the right.  Even the carry straps are made from the detailed fabric.

    Backpack size
    Although the premium backpack is a little bigger than the classic size, either is more than big enough for most kids.  We send our son to school with two changes of clothes, lunch, and a few toys and it comfortably holds all this in his premium backpack.  The picture below shows a classic backpack with a complete change of clothing for our five year old boy, and a pair of shoes.
