Paddlepaks are basically waterproof rucksack and they make excellent presents for the primary school age group. They are reasonably priced given how good the quality of them seems to be, usual and practical.
The children instantly loved their PaddlePaks, partly because they have lots of compartments for stuff. Even the tail fin has a tiny little compartment perfect size for (in my children's case) a cereal bar! There is also a really nifty sunglasses holder which was perfect for Fifi's Peppa Pig sunglasses.
One of the nice things about the Paddlepaks is that you can fit a lot of stuff in them; the children both fitted their entire swimming kit which included a large towel with lots of room to spare. I'm really impressed by this because all of the other kids rucksacks we have had used have had a tiny capacity.
In terms of waterproof-ness I think they are absolutely brilliant, perfect for swimming and general outdoor activities. They are unusual and funky with lots of pockets and compartments which kids love. Whats more they are excellent quality and reasonably priced.

I'll let boy sum it up for you: 'It's the best rucksack i've ever had!'
