Everything started with an ingenious idea: an alternative bag to the heavy and bulky satchels – but rather lightweight and colourful. Based on this idea the first Scout was developed in 1975. Today, almost 10 million children have attended school with a Scout, and the brand Scout has become a synonym for schoolbags. Many of the children from that time are parents themselves today -and want to give their children that exact same good feeling as they experienced years ago on their way into a new, exciting stage of life: with a Scout. The Scout schoolbags are more than just lightweight, colourful and attractive. Every Scout in the current collection fully complies with the German Safety Standard for schoolbags DIN 58124, is TÜV (German Technical Supervisory Association) certified. To achieve ideal safety the schoolbag should be provided with both retro-reflective and fluorescent fabrics.
