Rated 5 out of 5áby Jenaroo Brilliant
I received this backpack in five days!!! Amazing!!! I ordered the brilliant blue and the picture does it no justice. The blue is so vibrant and the size of the backpack is perfect.
I am beyond happy with this backpack for my daughter for Christmas!!

Rated 5 out of 5áby Scotter Greatest backpack that I have owened
I have had one of these backpacks since kindergarten and I am about to graduate from college. The backpack has been with me through hiking trips, field trips, parties, class, and more. The backpack is still in fairly good condition. One of the outside zippers is broken but the shoulder straps are in very good condition. My brothers also have these backpacks and they are all holding up very well. I would suggest this backpack for anyone.

Rated 2 out of 5áby vajulie poor zipper
The zipper was constantly getting stuck on the fabric, and after only using for a few months it's completely broken. Disappointed

Rated 5 out of 5áby SheIsFromDC On my second one
I had one of the older ones without the head phone hole from grade four until the middle of grade twelve; that thing took a lot of use and abuse. It was frequently stuffed to bursting with textbooks and notebooks, went to three countries and ten states, and finally developed some holes in the bottom corners.
I then went to replace it, only to discover that the colour was no longer made, but am now probably the only person at my university to have a bright teal LL Bean backpack. I only wish they had a laptop pocket (as it is I sewed in one).

I just asked my brother what he had on his Christmas wish list. His response: "You know that backpack Grandma bought for me 20 years ago? Well, I take it to work with me every day, and it needs to be replaced." He has used this bag just about every day for the last 20 YEARS! This is a quality product that I will happily replace for him.

Rated 4 out of 5áby pxglo Very light and sturdy backpack
I purchased this backpack a few months ago and have started to use it. It is a very sturdy backpack, and the zippers work very well. I am short 5'1" and wanted a backpack that was not too tall or too heavy. I use it to carry my work files. This does an amazing job!
The only thing missing that would have come in handy is a bottle holder on the side.

Rated 3 out of 5áby mbaytarian Unhappy with the "redesign"
My 10yo has had her LLBean deluxe backpack for a few years now. Perfectly happy with it. Durable, easy to use, showing NO wear and tear after 4 years of use. It was time for her younger sister to get a new backpack (figured I'd get her the LLBean deluxe, although huge now, figuring she'd grow into it) and I ended up buying a new pack for both kids. Wish I hadn't. The new design is awful. The zippers get stuck a LOT. Why did you remove the mesh water bottle holders??!! Such a disappointment!! Such a letdown from your prior iteration (which was perfect!)

Rated 3 out of 5áby suzydp No water bottle pocket
I bought 2 of these backpacks for my twins. Never realizing there weren't any pockets to hold their water bottles. Only a month an a half into school we've already ruined many books putting the bottles inside the bags.
These days every backpack should have water bottle pocket.

Rated 1 out of 5áby SharonW500 Disappointed
I had purchased one of these several years ago, and loved it. Then I decided I just wanted a new one with a different color, so I purchased one. The back pack is identical... except the elimation of the comfort grip handle. When it's loaded the handle now cuts into your hand. Very disappointed in the new back pack. Will be returning this and pulling out the old one.

Rated 5 out of 5áby groovylocks The Clown Car of Daypacks
The thing I have always loved about LL Bean bags is the material. I know some reviewers seem to have had a different experience but in my own, this is a super-durable, no-nonsense material.
I also can't get over the size of the thing. It looks very small and unintimidating until you start cramming things into it and THERE IS ALWAYS MORE ROOM. The thing is like Narnia, the Bag. It's the clown car of day packs.
That being said, I use it a lot for travel and would appreciate more support - wider waist straps, chest strap etc. Its not SUPER ergonomic.
But for what you're paying, it's an incredible pack. Will definitely continue to purchase these - or would if the things ever wore out. Which they just don't seem to.
Good job, LL Bean.
