Ergokid in Wheelock Place is having a 10% discount on school bags. Go check it out.
I would recommend Ergobag. It's a German school bag with an internal aluminum frame that allows the weight to be redistributed so that the bag is lighter on the shoulders. It protects the spine and encourages good posture. So no slouching there. You can find them in the Scool stores. I bought one for my son and he loves it. He says the bag feel lighter on his back. I'm recommending about this product to thank the guys there for the excellent sales service.
I got this Bag for my Daughter who is 8. She loved it.The brand is From Germany called "Herlitz" very good quality with great padding and comfort.Its lightweight and has 3 m reflectors to protect the child.I paid $99 with free delivery. Received the bag in 3 working days from the store. Its available at Branded Bags Sales Online | Prada | Coach | Singapore | iMyBags.com.sg - Most Trusted Online Shopping Website. They are a Singapore online bag store. Delivers Free worldwide.The bag I bought for my daughter came with a pencil case, Colouring pencil case and pencils and a bag. All matching with the bag design. imybags is a Singapore company.
Great Price and Great value. Unlike those from China who pass off as ergonomic bags.Great designs for both boys and gals and they have larger ones for older kids.

My sons use pulley bags as that will not strain their backs as much. However, the best advice i can give is to ensure that your child’s bag is always clear of unnecessary weight. Make sure that they know their schedule and bring stuff that is only require for that day.
Trolley bags are good if the child is big enough to pull the bag up the staircase, but some schools strongly discourage trolley bags because kids struggle to carry them along the staircase since the trolley bags tend to be heavier than standard school bags.
