Rated 5 out of 5áby hamma ahhhh waxed cotton ! ! !
i wasn't aware of back packs constructed of waxed cotton. as an avid old school motorcyclist, i have been using jackets and pants of a similar material for years. although my riding apparel is more coarse and has a waxier finish, i'm sure this pack will last me for years to come....and if it doesn't, i have the outstanding ll bean guarantee to fall back on. i'm excited to start beating this bag up a bit and getting the patina started. i'll keep you all posted...! ! !

Rated 5 out of 5áby Rainwood Best pack I've ever had!
I had been searching for the best pack for my needs and this is it. As a college student, I needed something to cary great big books and a place to put my pencils and pens. The front pocket was perfect for the little things; I just left the inner compartment unzipped and clipped my pens to that.
I am also a nature nut and was always short on space for my field guides and other gear like snake tongs and nets. Underneath the two side pockets are slots that are perfect for sliding a net into. Now I don't have to lug my tongs and net around with me when I'm looking for reptiles! Bean's park finder also provided me with near by places for my little expeditions.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Jlow28 Classic look and feel
I was surprised to see all the little extra compartments and pockets inside the bag for securing little items. This bag looks like its been with you for years when you get it. The materials are soft and worn with quality. It's a great mix of old vintage with modern updates.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Lizkay Rucksack for Travel
The Rucksack is very sturdy and perfect for International travel. I purchased this for my son for his trip to Ireland this summer. It will be able to hold all the items he needs and fit in the carryon compartment. Based on what I saw this rucksack should last forever and one extra day! Both he and I love it.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Spartan25 Sturdy, well-constructed
This backpack/rucksack is the best one I have ever tried . I am in college now and during high school, I went through a backpack every year. This one has a lot of room and the straps are really comfortable.

Rated 4 out of 5áby Robert80305 Good bag
I think this bag is great in terms of volume and number of pockets but I think there are a few improvements that can be incorporated to make this a better bag.
(1) The shoulder straps are thin and a little uncomfortable with heavier loads. I think a little more padding would go a long way.
(2) I think the waxing on the cotton is thin and not nearly as impregnated as it should be. This is a detail that I think is important for the bag to be comparable to nylon bags.

Rated 5 out of 5áby juneau75 Cotton Rucksack
It is a bit pricey but I think it is worth it. Good size interior and very usable and large outside pockets. I particularly like the shoulder straps and the padding used. Nicely made and tough all around. There is one draw back to this bag. Family members see it and want one...so I had to buy one for my niece who is in the Navy...I like this niece....so it was worth it...but others....not so much.
