Rated 5 out of 5áby N8sMom So great, bought a 2nd one!!
Got the backpack for my son (starting high school) and bought a second one when we saw how great and sturdy the first one was (for my other son- also in high school).
I wish we had started the year with it. The (reebok) backpack he started school with began to come apart within a couple of weeks, 30 lbs. of books (seriously, we weighed it, and that wasn't all of them...) Anyway, when it arrived and he switched it out and we were both very please with the extra roomi-ness of it, comfortable straps and back.Very confident with its strength, quality and construction. What a great backpack!! I'm sure it will get both of them through all of high school, college and beyond!. :-)

Rated 5 out of 5áby Jomen Sturdy backpack
I love this backpack for my kids who are in middle school and high school. They always have a very heavy load of books and this backpack, with all its compartments, is very rugged and can hold up with all of the heaviness! Only once did it break and L.L. Bean make good on their return policy, replacing it promptly and with no questions asked. I would feel confident recommending L.L. Bean and this product to any of my friends!

Rated 5 out of 5áby CJTrav Almost perfect...
This is the second LLBean deluxe back pack for our family. The first is 5 years old and is just barely showing signs of wear and usage. All zippers and buckles are still in great shape and reliable. The newest one appears to be of similar quality and sturdiness. But the bottom seems to be made if a different material that makes more static electricity. My dog snuggled up to both packs and only the newest one came out covered with dog hair. But that's not a real problem. A sternum strap would bump it up to perfect so I made my own out of spare buckles and webbing. I recommend EVERYONE get several of these back packs!!!

Rated 5 out of 5áby Dad6Girls Good size
I purchased this backpack for my 8 year old daughter and she absolutely loves it. Functionality and color were the key takeaways for her. I like it because it fits her well and balanced the weight instead of the shoulder bag she had prior. The monograming is also a huge plus. It adds a nice personal touch.

Rated 5 out of 5áby katysthoughts High quality and nice look
The backpack we got for my step-daughter and she was so happy when she saw it. She wears a lot of black so this sleek backpack matches everything. It's comfortable and holds all of her stuff, which is a huge thing because the school sends the kids home with so many heavy books. She's a junior and I believe this backpack will last her many many years.

Rated 5 out of 5áby LiLi99 Great Book Pack!
This is the second book pack I have purchased - the first one got him all the way through middle school and this one will get him through high school. I love the reflective material, especially since he has to walk in the dark to the bus. Great book pack!
