It was a sad day when we finally retired the kelly green, Dakine backpack.
The photo on the left was taken on the first day of pre-school for my now 6th grader. That was back in 2009. He chose this particular backpack from the wide selection of options we carry at Peace Frogs Travel/Outfitters because he loved the color. It also met the size specifications the pre-school required, which were absurdly huge. The backpack was so long on his little frame that I was sure he would topple over. He didn’t.
Now, 7+ years later, that same backpack remains fully functional after the daily tossing and turning of my two boys. Truthfully, not even my son wanted the change, but when Peace Frogs Travel/Outfitters got in a new Dakine backpack made from recycled water bottles in blue, his favorite color, I decided he had to have it.
Still, RIP best backpack ever. –Julie, March 2017
