Rated 5 out of 5 by hdub73 Ordering was easy / spacious and organized bag
ORDERING/SHIPPING PROCESS - So easy! I love the FREE shipping to Canada. Duties/taxes were pleasantly low. Shipped from Freeport to Toronto in no time, even though I added on the monogramming which I expected to take longer.
QUALITY OF THE BAG - hard to tell as this is our first LL Bean backpack. It appears durable and well made (I won't know until my daughter actually uses it for school). But I love all the compartments. Keeps her homework safely away from her lunchbox and wet winter mittens/scarves/hats. I was very happy with the monogramming as well.
So far, our first LL Bean purchase has been so extremely favourable that I recommended it to my cousin for her daughter.

Rated 4 out of 5 by NewEnglandMomof2 More boy colors please!
This is a nice backpack. It's well-made, roomy and my sons like it. I'd love to see more boy colors offered, though. I have this problem often with LL Bean, where there will be several colors offered but the majority of them are geared towards girls. Boys want variety too! Other than the lack of color choices, I highly recommend this backpack.

I Have ordered 5 backpacks from LLBean (for diff family members ages 6 to 36) all exceptional, superior quality. One that I ordered was the wrong design (My own fault) and after 2 months I was afraid it was too late to return, but after reviewing their policy realized there is NO TIME LIMIT on returns AWSOME!! Also, LLBean stands behind their quality and workmanship, so if a product fails to meet my HIGH expectations, or my daughters abusive wear and tear (which has yet to happen) they will replace, repair, or refund at their discretion. I will NEVER purchase another brand of backpack. My daughter started JK and went through 2 WAL-MART backpacks and 1 REEBOK pack in under 6 months before I investigated and found LLBEAN, They haven't disappointed me yet! Now I am a customer for life, and have referred all my friends and family! Thank you LLBEAN!

Rated 5 out of 5 by SouthShoreMom Great Backpack, Superb Customer Service
This backpack was sold out in all colors and designs online and was not available in our local store either. I called L.L. Bean customer service to find out when the packs were expected to come back in stock. Rather than just provide me that information, the customer service rep went above and beyond to find a backpack located in a store halfway across the country! She connected me with a store that had 1 backpack left, in a "feminine" print (the chalkboard one), I completed the transaction over the phone with the store employee and my daughter had her backpack three days later! Thank you, L.L. Bean, you made a 4th grade girl (and her Mom) very happy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by kayak10 Awesome customer service
So happy that I decided to call and check on availability of a sold out backpack for my 9 year old. The customer service representative did an excellent job in helping me locate the backpack we were looking for. She took the time to call and check around for me. It was a 15 minute call with the time it took to locate the items I was searching for. She and her colleague at LL Bean East View found the backpack and a bonus matching lunch box !!
We are super excited and thank you for going above and beyond and not just saying, "sorry it's sold out". We have purchased backpacks from LL Bean in the past and they are superior.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Jmelynn Very sturdy, great fit, displeased with monogram
The backpack was awesome & my 8 year old daughter loved it, but we were just displeased with the monogramming from llbean. It was so small! Even my mother-in-law got her grandson one & had it monogrammed through llbean & it was also very small. If that was corrected & made larger, I think we really would be loving it, but now I think I will get them monogrammed through someone else. The bookbag though was great!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by brcslats Great Backpack!!
The new Deluxe Plus Backpack is ideal for school. It has two side mesh pockets on the outside which is a must for California for water bottles. Her last LL Bean backpack went 3 school years and still looks almost brand new. The only reason we got another one was that she needed another divider dedicated for her tablet for school. Will not buy another backpack and highly recommend them!!!

My eleven year old daughter is starting middle school in August. She wanted a new book bag for a new school. Our go to place for book bags is LLBean. This is her third one from LLBean. She outgrew her first one. Her second one is still in excellent condition, but she had used it for a few years and wanted something a little bigger and different. She couldn't wait to open the package when it arrived (in just a few days from ordering). Even though she hasn't used it for school yet, she loves it. Her favorite parts are the large compartments, water bottle holders, and the reinforced dark colored bottom. LLBean book bags are perfect for any age child. My 24 year old son still has the one that he used in high school. The bags are indestructible.
