Blind people are the best resource you can find to learn about blindness. When I went looking for a backpack, I asked the blind folks on Twitter. They replied with this great pack from L.L.Bean.
"A hit among our student field testers, this premium version of our popular Deluxe Book Pack features an audio cord port, water bottle pockets, a cell phone pocket and more. Two roomy main compartments hold books, binders and folders. Cushioned ergonomic lumbar pad, padded back panel and contoured shoulder straps make heavy loads more comfortable.
Built from rugged water-resistant ripstop polyester fabric, with a supertough reinforced bottom. Perforated 3M Scotchlite Reflective Material is highly visible to motorists at night. Molded cargo handle is comfortable to grip. Unique Buckle Garage holds waistbelt out of the way when not in use. Two mesh water bottle pockets. 2,250 cu. in. 2 lb. 4 oz. 17"H x 13"W x 9½"D.
This product features 3M Scotchlite Reflective Material for optimal nighttime visibility. Thousands of tiny lenses reflect street lamps and headlights, helping motorists spot kids easily in low light. Back in 1982, we were among the first to include this important safety feature on a book pack. Today, L.L.Bean uses more 3M Scotchlite than any other book pack manufacturer, and our signature reflective triangle is sewn on the back of all our Kids' outerwear."
