What's the difference between schoolbag and rucksack?

Hi O'Prata,

There are a couple of differences.

  • A schoolbag is any bag for carrying school things. It can be different types of bag, like a bag you carry on your back (a rucksack or backpack), or a bag that hangs from your shoulder (a satchel).
  • A rucksack can be for any purpose, not just for carrying school things.

So, a rucksack is also a schoolbag if you use it to carry your school things.

Does that make sense?

Very nice. Would like to know why the BACKPACK is called RUCKSACK.

Hi Vanessa Suzuki,

Rucksack and backpack are two names for the same thing. You can use either one :)

Best wishes,

Hello Anwar68,

I think you mean 'backpack' here.

Backpack is the more general word. It can describe any kind of back you wear on your back with straps going over your shoulders and under your arms. It could be a small thing you take to work with a laptop and a few pens and books, or it could be something larger for travelling.

Rucksacks are a type of backpack which are used for hiking, trekking and camping. They are designed for outdoor use and for carry clothes, a tent, camping equipment and so on.
