No sooner than your ears stop ringing from the Fourth of July fireworks, the school supply sales start. My daughter begs me to take her shopping as soon as the first pencil case appears on the store shelves. The ZIPIT brand has been a favorite in our house for years. The fun of having pencil cases, bags and trinket pouches that zip apart and re-zip never ceases to end. And the colorful and stylish array of zippered storage boxes, bags and backpacks is delightful. This year, your kids will surely swoon over the ZIPIT Grillz backpacks.
What child can resist the cuteness and coolness of this unique backpack decorated with eyes and a hood, and sparkling grillz hidden behind an accessory pouch “mouth?” And parents, this backpack comes with a one-year warranty against defects and a 365-day, money-back guarantee (applies to perfect condition merchandise only). If you register your product online, ZIPIT will extend the one-year warranty to a lifetime warranty for free.
The large version of this backpack is simply designed, and makes it easy for kids to keep track of all of their stuff behind the cool grillz exterior. There is one large compartment with dual zippered closures, and one accessory pocket in the front of the backpack. The backpack is approximately 11.2-inches wide by 16.5-inches tall and 14.5-inches deep. We filled our backpack at home to see if it would hold the standard load of middle school daily supplies. We were pleasantly surprised that it did, with a bit of room left to spare.
Other great features of the ZIPIT Grillz Large Backpack include:
- Durable polyester fabric;
- Padded back and padded straps with coordinating colors;
- Fabric covering the large compartment zipper for extra protection against the elements;
- Machine washable; and
- Cool color combinations.
The ZIPIT Grillz Large Backpack is available in six vibrant color combinations:
- black and lime (pictured);
- grey and pink;
- lime and pink;
- pink and lime;
- camo grey and grey, and
- green (camo) and black.
Overall, my tween daughter liked this backpack, and asked to use it as soon as we received it–a sure sign that it will continue to be used. She thought it was functional, fun and a little quirky. While the backpack looked small when we opened it, it did hold several folders, a Chromebook, notebooks and books. I would have liked to have seen one additional large compartment, as most of backpacks we own have two large compartments and my kids tend to use one compartment exclusively for their lunches and water bottles. This backpack also does not have any exterior water bottle holders or mesh compartments.
With attitude built-in to these backpacks, your kids will be sure to greet the first day of school, and every day, with a smile. ZIPIT Grillz backpacks are available at most major retailers, Amazon, and online at the ZIPIT website. Be sure to add this backpack to your family’s back-to-school shopping list.
