The Smarty Solution For A Clear Backpack



 It seems that more schools are enforcing students to use a clear backpack. The schools feel that a clear backpack may be the answer to keep kids safe from all the gun violence. Even events that attract many people are turning to clear backpacks as they feel these clear bags make it easier to see what people are bringing into the event.



Is a clear backpack the answer?

 While it seems that a clear backpack may be the answer to keep kids safe in school, many parents and students are not so sure. Some feel that a clear backpack invades their privacy but at the same time, it does not allow the bad people to hide weapons. Some may even argue that a clear backpack does not allow kids to express themselves. I am in the middle when it comes to buying a clear backpack. I can see the safety issue but I can also see the issue about privacy as all one's items are on display. Then there is the problem of getting backpacks mixed up in school as all the clear backpacks look alike. I am glad that airports do not require a clear backpack as I would not feel safe traveling with all my items on display. I like being able to carry my Anti-Theft, Smartphone Friendly Travel Backpack when I travel through airports.


A Smarty solution for a clear backpack

 One company is understanding these issues and made a clear backpack with different color trims so that kids get some choice if they have to have a clear backpack for school. Smarty makes durable clear backpacks in four different colors in different sizes. I decided to check this bag out so I have a clear bag on hand if I need one for an event that requires a clear bag. 


The answer to the bag searches

 Many events that are open to the public have bag searches and last year the Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta added to their media info that a clear bag was required for all media attendees. Thankfully they did not enforce this rule as I guess they realized people would not have time to buy a clear bag. That information made me realize that events could enforce a clear bag rule if people wanted to carry in items. The ballpark near me does not allow outside food and allows you to bring an unopened storebought bottle of water. I may not like that these places have these rules but I understand the safety issue. So I decided to get a clear backpack so I could be ready for events that require one.


The clear backpack that offers organization

 I like that Smarty added mesh pockets to their clear backpack so I can keep small items organized and in reach. These mesh pockets would be great for my phone, money and charging cords along with pens and chargers. A water bottle pocket is always a must for backpacks as well as comfortable adjustable carry straps. The Smarty clear backpack has all of these features as well as 3X Cross Stitching and a laptop sleeve. SMARTY Transparent Backpacks are the perfect combination of comfort, durability, and style.

Perfect for School Safety, Concerts, Marches, Sporting Events, Festivals, and Work (Airport TSA Security, Correctional Officers, and more)

  2. Hmm. It's a good idea. But I hope something like this wouldn't encourage bullying. Say a kid has something in their bag that another kid teases them for. Hopefully not but kids are so darn cruel these days.

  3. I don't think I will ever buy a clear backpack. It does invade privacy and also make you a target if you are carrying valuable items in it, such as an expensive phone or laptop.

  4. I don't really know what my opinion of them for school use is just yet. My kids school doesn't require them though. But I really do like this clear backpack because there are a lot of events we go too (sporting, concerts, festivals, etc.) that do require them. Which is totally understandable in my opinion. I think this clear backpack is cute!

  5. This is such a cute idea for a back pack, I have to say though I think if I had one it would look absolutely awful haha! My bags are always such a mess.

  6. It is a shame that because of the behavior of others, it results in our own privacy being in question. If a clear bag is required, I would abide by those rules, but not happily! Thanks for sharing!

  9. I think clear backpacks are really cute but it does bum me out that schools are making their students use them. Some people want to be environmentally supportive by using natural fibers which is impossible with this restriction.

  13. I'm not even going to get started on my feelings about transparent backpacks decreasing violence at schools. I could literally go on forever about the issue (I'm helping draft a proposal for Congress so I have research piled throughout my house lol). But if that's what people want to use, might as well rock it! I love the smarty is so durable because I would be afraid a transparent bag would easily break.

  14. I don't like the idea of a clear back pack completely because of the lack of privacy. I think that bad people will always be able to find a way to get bad things where they can do the most damage despite the clear backpack. That being said, I think you found a nice one for the events that require you have one. It's nice to have the space and the ability to organize.

  16. WOW! I love that clear backpack you got there! Anyway, if kids have to use clear backpacks to school in order to curb the issue on gun violence, then I'm all for it!
