I was looking at these sling backpacks and thinking what a better idea because you can distribute the weight evenly on your back. Now if they had one that would actually fit massive text books into.
But they do have some really cute ones if you're into backpacks rather than purses. I love this one:
I think its a more sleek take on the double shoulder backpack purses. Very cute.
I also think sling backpacks make a great diaper bag for dads! So much cooler than a flowery bag and easier to handle since it's on his back. Unless you have a regular Mr. Mom I bet he's appreciate something like that.
Just something to think about.
