Whether you're wondering about the best backpack for school, how to wash your Madlug backpack, or which bags are suitable for different age groups, we've got you covered.
Which backpack works best as a school bag?
This will vary depending on a number of factors, including the age of your child, and their requirements. Check out this handy blog post for a break down of each bag.
What is your best-selling school bag?

Which of your bags have water bottle pockets?
Our School Bag, Laptop Roll-Top Backpack, Roll-Top Tech Backpack all have external water bottle pockets. Our 12-hour Commuter and 24-hour Commuter Backpacks both have internal water bottle holders, while our 72-hour Commuter Backpack has a zippered side pocket for a water bottle.
What is the best way to wash a Madlug backpack?
While some customers have washed their bags inside a pillowcase on a gentle setting in the washing machine with no issues, we advise you hand wash your bag just to be safe. Read this blog to learn more.
Will your bags withstand wet weather?
Madlug bags are water-resistant. However, if you plan to use your Madlug backpack in heavy rain or other wet conditions, you may want to consider waterproofing it to protect your belongings from water damage. Many customers have reported using a waterproof spray to protect their Madlug from water damage.
Simply spray the backpack evenly and allow it to dry completely before using it in wet conditions. Alternatively, use a rain cover and place it over your backpack to protect it from rain and moisture.
Which bags are best for which age group?
For toddlers and very young children attending nursery or reception/year one, we recommend the Madlug Mini, and for primary and secondary school children, we recommend either the Classic Backpack, Junior Backpack, or the School Bag. For teenagers and college students, our Roll-Top Backpacks, Laptop Roll-Top Backpacks, and Tech Backpacks are all popular choices.
