Why July?

Did you know that online searches for backpacks for the back to school season begin heating up in mid to late July?
According to a Google Insights Report from last year, in many states, the prime searching time for backpacks is RIGHT NOW! Which means now is the time to capture shopper's attention. And I can't think of a better way to capture the demand than with the supply of Rothco Bags. Rothco carries over 200 different styles of bags and packs for you and your consumer to choose from.

Not only does Rothco have a vast selection of backpacks to choose from (did I mention over 200 styles ), with our 99.5% in-stock rate, we always have what you need, when you need it.

Here are a few bags we know are going to be an A+ this school year.

Camo Isn't a Disguise, It's a Statement

Camouflage has made its way from being strictly used for military and hunting applications to now becoming a mainstream item. Since 2013, the search trends for "Camo" have nearly doubled, according to Google Trends analysis. Furthermore, the seasonal trend for camo, which reaches its peak in November and December, begins it's ascent in July. There are a number of practical applications for camo which include more traditional military, tactical, and airsoft markets but camo has also become popular for school spirit with colored camo patterns, fashion with vintage and classic patterns, and athletics with Rothco's new Camo Performance T-Shirts.

Here at Rothco we know a thing or two about camo; we have items in over 30 camo patterns including military patterns, colored patterns, digital patterns, and camo patterns that are exclusive to Rothco. If you're looking for camo, you'll find it at Rothco.
