Rated 5 out of 5áby Kayla2017 Great quality
This backpack was the best money ever spend. And the shipping was quick, and it arrived two days before scheduled. Definitely going to make sure all of our kids backpacks come from here.

This original book pack is super sturdy and fit all of my daughter's school supplies with no issue. My daughter absolutely loves the print and how her name looked on her back pack!

Rated 5 out of 5áby BWelch New beginnings...
Just purchased this bag for my 7 yr old going to 2nd grade at a new school. The past couple of years I'd get her the bags with her favorite character that only lasted for that school year before falling apart. This year, I wanted to get her a big girl backpack as she started a new school. I got her the bag in Flower Power and monogrammed with her initials in yellow. On the screen the color was pretty and I thought would pop on the bag, but it kind of blended in. I called customer service to see what could be done and was told they would replace the bag with a new color. Which made me very happily surprise thinking monogrammed items would be irreplaceable. They said it would take 2 wks to return, so my daughter decided the color was okay and wanted to keep it. So we're thoroughly satisfied with LL Bean customer service and their product. First purchase, but certainly not the last.

Rated 5 out of 5áby AZMamaO Lightweight but sturdy
Excellent backpack, used a couple of years now (Kindergarten and 1st grade) and could last a few more and still looks new. Washes well, does not fray or fade. It is important to us that the backpack is lightweight, such a bonus that is very sturdy too.

I bought this backpack in 1989 and am still using it. LL Bean repaired it when the zipper broken once in the 90's. I'm impressed with Bean's level of service and product. As I get ready to buy my daughter's first backpack, I knew just where to go to get hers.

As a freshman in high school I carried the navy LL Bean backpack my parents gave me to start my high school career while everyone else carried the ultra cool and trendy one shoulder bags that never had enough room and started to fall apart by Christmas. My LL Bean bag stuck. It coasted through those trendy freshmen months and then it sailed through my entire high school career. It hauled more books and endured more abuse than any bag I've ever owned, yet it just kept going. I took my LL Bean bag to college because why not? After five years and two degrees the darn thing still held books and snacks and everything else I could jam in it like a pro. After college I used my LL Bean bag for the gym, where the poor blue soul was tortured, then I finally started using it as a bike bag. I lug my most important possessions in my LL Bean bag because it's easy. I was 14 when my LL bean bag came into my life and I just turned 38, so if you are debating on if the bag is worth the cost, I'd say 24 years is a pretty good return on an investment.

Rated 4 out of 5áby tanyap great but needs water bottle holder/pocket
Got this backpack for daughter, a tall 6 year old. Great back backpack. Stylish, comfortable, sturdy. During summer we use it for day hikes (fits me fine with straps lengthened all the way). I don't understand, however, why this model does not have an external water bottle pocket or internal holder. Unless you have a perfect water bottle that never leaks, this backpack is not suited for carrying water. No matter how you pack the backpack, the water bottle will always fall to the bottom and slosh around, so keep this in mind.

Finally have to replace my LL Bean Original Book Pack that I have used since 1994. I used it through high school and college and then as a diaper bag and airplane carry on. It has been over the river, through the woods, and around the world. Finally some of the inside started to dry rot and leave flaky stuff on my clothes, and so I am here at llbean.com today to order another Original Book Pack for my upcoming trip to Colorado! May it last well into my 60s!

Rated 5 out of 5áby MoMof3roughones 5 years and still going strong!
I bought this for my daughter in 1st grade and told her it had to work till middle school. I really didn't believe it would last 5 years, but it is still in great shape! My daughter is very rough with her things so this speaks a lot about this backpack!

Rated 1 out of 5áby Momof6littlefeet One year of preschool and it has holes.
My 4 year old got this in the fall and by the end of the year it has multiple holes on the bottom near the seams. I am not sure if it is the printed material or what. The kids have 3 other solid colors backpacks from junior to deluxe that have lasted for years. I figured this would last until at least the end of first grade and then only because of it looking dirty it is a lighter colored butterfly print that seems to be discontinued.
