R&D efforts are steered toward even weight distribution and multiple pockets for easy organization.
- Ergonomic features: The latest releases come with wider and thickly padded straps and waist belts to distribute weight evenly. The backs also have PE panels and EVA foam cushioning for improved comfort. Makers are likewise replacing the conventional two wheels in trolley versions with three or four omnidirectional casters for better mobility.
- Well-organized contents: Typical school bags for younger pupils have a partitioned main compartment, and a zipped front and two side pockets. Models for older students, meanwhile, feature larger storage areas with specific division for books, documents, pens and personal electronics such as laptops and mobile phones. Exterior pockets for umbrellas, keys and bottles may be added as well.
- Cartoon motifs, bright hues: Several companies have licenses to use Barbie, Mickey Mouse, Transformers, Superman and other famous characters. These are applied via silk-screening, embroidery, or glue, heat-transfer or high-frequency printing. Fancy constructions, including 3D animal designs, are popular as well. Lemon yellow, sky blue, apple green and carnation pink are the common colors. Many girls’ models feature glossy and shiny trimmings.
