Marathon has been manufacturing schoolbags for more than 27 years. The company is a specialist in all kinds of school bags from folios through to endorsed ergonomic backpacks and from drawstring PE bags through to multi coloured team kitbags. It is a family owned company with its own warehouse and in-house printing facility based in Surrey.
The team at Marathon is working constantly to bring the best school bags to the market and to keep its products at the cutting edge. This year a number of changes and additions are planned.
The performance range of bags is getting a modern new look, having upgraded the fabric and reduced the weight of the bags last year with its revolutionary Tufflite fabric, a new sleek look is being introduced to the zips along with more fashionable zip fobs. The range is also being expanded to include a new backpack and a new team kitbag will be arriving soon.
The new Unopak (due in stock Spring 2017) will be available in both 25 litre and 18 litre sizes, medium sized bags which will suit junior and senior school children. It is an ergonomic backpack with one main compartment which is easy to open and to load. It benefits from the new modern reverse zips and two reflective strips for visibility.
The popular Junior backpack has had a makeover. A water bottler holder has been added and it is now available in purple as well as a range of six other colours. Following numerous demands from our customers we are also working on new additions to the infant and primary school range, there are a number of new bags in the pipeline which will also be available for 2017.
