Rated 5 out of 5 by Shining Gift for daughter
I bought the super deluxe bag for our adult daughter. She will use it as a carry on for travel this summer. She was able to pack everything she needed in it for a weekend trip already. I have one just like it. I love all the compartments, and pockets.

Rated 5 out of 5 by NLB2013 Great Backpack
This is a great backpack, especially for kids with big binders and/or laptops to carry. Spacious, durable, and my kids liked that they could have it monogrammed. Pricey, but worth it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by 4buttercup Excellent Purchase
Purchase one when my son went in the 9th grade. Used same book bag thru out entire time in High School. Ordering another for him to have a new one for college. I am certain this one will be the only one he needs in that time also. Worth every penny.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mamabare Sturdy and roomy
The sturdy part of the comment is based on our previous LL Bean, which withstood 4 years of abuse from our son, who insisted on carrying as much as he could possibly pack in there, then dragging it everywhere. The zipper finally gave when he got something stuck in there and forced it, but the fabric was still perfect. We upgraded in size to this one, and it is plenty roomy, with multiple inside pockets. It seems pricey, until you figure out that one cheap backpack a year that wears out quickly adds up to cost you more than just buying the good one to start with.

Rated 3 out of 5 by FloydsKnobber Strap pulled away from seam after 2 months
My 16-year-old son used this backpack only two months before the strap broke at the bottom. Where the main strap is sewn in to the backpack material at the bottom of your back/side, it ripped away from the seam. He was luckily able to rig it up by tying the broken strap to the waist strap (that sits right next to it) for a couple days.
I called customer service that afternoon (a Tuesday) and they said a new backpack (monogramming included, to match the old one) would be here by Friday. It was actually delivered Thursday before my son even got home from school. Obviously they care about their customers and want to keep them.
My son does carry a lot in his backpack and the strap that broke is the one he picks his backpack up with. He claims he uses both straps most of the time, but the broken strap is the one that he uses solo, if he's walking just a short distance.
I wish it had held up longer, but I appreciate L.L. Bean's commitment to replace it, and their efficiency in doing so.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LittleLamb321 Great Bag
I have two boys who have had these bags almost every year of school. They use them for two years and they are packed full of books and always hold up for the whole two years and then some. The only reason we order a new one is because my kids are tired of the color or something.
