When you think Eddie Bauer, you probably think outdoor accessories and gear. They definitely have great coats, sleeping bags, and gadgets… but they also have a great line of products for kids including clothes, backpacks, and even lunchboxes! I decided to challenge Eddie Bauer and see if they really could send ANY age child back to school in style: a preschooler, an elementary/middle schooler, and a high school/college student. Here’s what I found.
Little kids play outside at school. They need high quality jackets, coats, and fleeces to keep the warm since it seems like whatever the temperature is outside, they want to get out in it. I absolutely love fleece, both for myself and for kids. Good thing Eddie Bauer has a ton of options in pretty much every size imaginable like the Boy’s Cloud Layer® Fleece. The seams are sturdy, the fabric is tough, and if you do things like cuff the sleeves, you can buy one piece that can last all school year.
Medium Kids’ Back to School Gear
Sending your kids to school with a packed lunch is one way to make sure they are getting healthy foods that they actually like. When I was in school, I had one of those hard plastic lunchboxes. It definitely did the job, but insulated lunchbags like the Lunch Box Cooler. That way you can send hot or cold foods to school and hopefully they’ll stay that way. This particular bag doesn’t have a lot of extra space, but can hold enough to build a good healthy lunch.
Big Kids’ Back to School Gear
Everyone knows that a good solid backpack is key for kids in middle school, high school, and college. There are a TON of Eddie Bauer backpack options including the Boundary Pack in Pale Aqua . They have lots of options with laptop areas which is definitely important for the student of today. Since it’s Eddie Bauer, they know how to make sturdy backpacks. Make sure you check out all of the features and pick the right one because it could really last a LONG time. (That would mean saving money on backpacks in years to come! Always a good thing.)
