I still vividly remember that I’d purchased the school bag for my 3 kids in December 2012 for RM30-00 per bag (RM90-00 for 3). Now, it's beginning of school in January 2012 where my kids battling for their heavy load of text books cramped into their conventional school bag.
Carried around rain or shine, dump it on the floor after TIRED day from school (yeah...right).
By March 2012, 3 months after the school had started, the existing school bag had been torn at the shoulder strap due to heavy impact. A huge gap can be clearly seen along the stitch line.
I’ve purchased another bag at the same price for my 9 and 11 year old son, only to get frustrated that the newly purchased bags had been torn at the similar spot – shoulder strap that connected to the body - due to manufacturer’s defect I think. I don’t even bother to go back and complaint (tak kuasa!)
Searching through the net came to one brand – ‘Swan’. Apparently there are few establishments of their outlet throughout klang valley and the closest from my residence is in Aeon Balakong (formerly known as Jaya Jusco).
The Swan bag had proven its durability with positive reviews from all its users (mostly parents). With the cost of RM60-00 per bag which is affordable and worth every penny, I mean cent.
Now, after 1 month using the bag and with all the tortures and tantrum, I would say that the bag is still holding strong...
My son is a proud owner of the swan bag...ha, ha..
Let us check what is in their store:
Be careful for imitation, so, choose wisely by their authorised swan dealer.
