Rated 3 out of 5áby greatdealer Super Deluxe bookpack
This item would have been ok had it not had a bad chemical like smell. Since I wanted this for travel it would have given my clothes that odor. I returned this and would not recommend it. It may be ok for books,

Rated 3 out of 5áby neah quality
I bought these same bookbags for my children probably 20 years ago. Both were fantastic! One of them went through grades 6-12 , then college, went to Prague and then to China for a year, came back and went to grad school. It is still being used today on occasion. Being completely sold on them, I just bought my grandsons the same bookbag. I am also a teacher, so I see the smaller versions of the bag at school. The new ones have a large "flap" for the zipper enclosure that is constantly getting stuck in the zipper. It has gotten to the point where after only 14 weeks of school, we are going to have to replace them. This makes me sad to see such an awesome product altered to where there are not serviceable. I hope they will reevaluate this part of the constuction. All other parts of the bookbag are great!

Rated 5 out of 5áby RhodeIslandTexan Functional, roomy and durable
I bought this for my 8th grade son after his previous 4-year old LL Bean backpack's zipper finally gave way. He decided he wanted another LL Bean backpack so that speaks volumes. I love that this pack has room for all his books, a small umbrella and a light weight fleece jacket. In addition, the outer zipper compartment fits the LL Bean lunch box perfectly so lunch doesn't get to school crushed by books. I was very happy with the durability of his previous LL Bean backpack so I expect that with the same material and craftsmanship this one will take him through the next 4 years!

Each of my kids has had this bookbag five or more years. They are tough on them and they hold up! Best money I have spent on buying one.

Rated 5 out of 5áby PsychStudent Indestructible
My parents got me this bag towards the end of high school. I used it for 2 years of high school, and 5 years as an undergrad in college where I carried a ton of stuff every day. Now I am in graduate school and the bag is still working great. The zipper for the second compartment has two broken teeth but still works fine. Overall I've used and abused this bag with a ton of school supplies for over 7 years plus taken it on numerous camping trips and day hikes and it?s been great. Very comfortable and solid. Bags been worth every penny and then some, I fully expect it to last me until the end of grad school. Also the bag isn't totally water proof but I've had to walk across campus more than a few times in the rain and only had an issue once during extremely heavy rain.

just received the backpack before I left for vacation. It fit everything I needed, fit under the seat on the plane and was completely comfortable to have on my back. Super backpack. No complaints.

Rated 5 out of 5áby 74grandmom Super Deluxe Book Pack
I bought this at regular price plus tax at the LLB store for a high school grandson over 2 1/2 years ago after trying to save money on cheaper pack backs which in the end cost more in time, money and energy. I love a sale but I love quality even more! I have ended up saving money in the long run because this backpack has withstood being tossed on the floor at home and school, stepped on, being jostled on public transportation, laundering, and being taken on weekend trips. It holds a thick Mead binder, books, folders, a MacPro, water bottles, and food, I bought it because of LLB's reputation of quality and 100% satisfaction. Plus, grandson likes the LL Bean name on the bag!

Rated 4 out of 5áby nycmom2boys Fits a 3" binder and more!
My 11 year old son can get his 3" binder in and out of this backpack with ease. There is enough room in here for the binder, books, and his lunchbox. The backpack itself is light, which is good because it doesn't add to the weight of the book load. One of the features that drew me to this bag was the cell phone pocket on the strap. Unfortunately, it is way too small. It is nearly impossible for my son to get his phone, with it's protective rubberized case, in and out of it.

Granted, my expectations were for the best backpack made. Very high quality, large enough for a 3" binder and several big books. Comfortable and well made. Will purchase again as kids move into 7th grade...

Rated 3 out of 5áby DA88 Bit disappointed
I love your products but I was replacing one of your older products and I would have to say the super deluxe bookpack from three or four years ago seems to be better made, a little roomier and higher quality material. It seems like the strap at the top of the backpack does not have a rubber grip that is a bit more comfortable than the new strap.Hopefully this new backpack will hold up as well as the old one.
