Excellent quality backpack. Last one made it through 2.5 yrs of school. 12 yr old likes the water bottle holder on the outside.

Rated 5 out of 5áby ElizK Personalized backpack
Thank you for the great backpack. The personalized embroidered initials look great. Even with the extra time required for the initials the shipping was very quick. I love the royal blue color and the material is very thick and strong. I am sure I'll be using this backpack for a long time. Thank you!

Rated 4 out of 5áby TNmom254321 Monogramming very small
While I love the LL Bean back packs, the embroidery option is not worth the money on the backpacks. I paid the extra to have my daughter's monogram put on her Deluxe Plus Backpack. However, the monogram is so tiny you can barely see it. There is plenty of space for a larger font however LL Bean chose to make it 2" by 2". I will never have anything monogrammed by them again.

Rated 5 out of 5áby LLBeanLover4 Great backpack
I'm many years out of college but bought this backpack to use while traveling. It's a great size to carry items for me and my 4-year old daughter. The biggest reason I bought this pack was because of the water bottle pockets on the side. I have always wanted a deluxe backpack, but just never ended up getting one. When I finally was ready ... I was so excited to see the plus with water bottle holders! I haven't used it yet out and about, but I have filled it with the items I will be taking with me and it seems to fit everything just fine and the size looks good on me as well. As always, no complaints about any of my L.L. Bean products!! :)

Rated 5 out of 5áby ChandaN Best Book Bag ever!
I purposely waited an entire school year so that I could give the most honest review possible. And I have to say that this by far is the best book bag that I've ever purchased; It's worth every penny and more. The quality is just fantastic and my 9 year old son absolutely loves the look of it. Typically in one school year, he would have gone through two book bags and I would still have to purchase another at the beginning of the next school year. Fortunately this won't be the case this time around.The only con that I would have to mention is that the zipper kept snagging the material but even with that imperfection, I still rate it a 10 out of 10. I can't wait to purchase one for my toddler when he starts school.

Rated 5 out of 5áby 2Old Traveler's Version of Classic Book Pack
While not aimed at travelers, certain features of the Deluxe Plus Book pack make it very appealing for frequent flyers:
(1) twin external mesh water bottle pouches keep water away from contents and don't require unzipping the pack (I use one pouch for a ski cap); (2) the fuzzy-lined internal zip pouch will take a 7" or 7.9" tablet; and (3) the laptop panel is my favorite place to stow a folded wind breaker (and yes, it will keep a laptop in place if that's what you prefer). -
The fat full size compartment holds my emergency layover clothing and other essentials. The skinny full size compartment holds my flat-folded fleece or thin-style down jacket. The secondary pouch's flat "office panel" holds pen, memo pad, keys, and phone. The secondary pouch itself is perfect for chargers. -
There's some great "minimalism" about this "book" pack. It's made of nylon, much tougher and abrasion resistant than polyester. The smooth surface (it's not roughed up to imitate canvas) repels pet hairs and fur. It's 420d not 210d, so its thick enough to skip a separate lining, thereby reducing weight. The polyurethane interior coating is the modern kind that doesn't stink or peel off. All the seams are bound to prevent fraying. Compared to the beating a student gives their Book Pack, your traveler's load should be easy peasy. I'm a 5'8" adult and the pack is "right size", which is to say not too small. -
At 21 ounces yielding 32 liters fabricated out of sturdy 420d nylon, I don't think there is a more cost effective and efficient "personal item carryon" daypack on the market.

Rated 4 out of 5áby Emmylou12 Great bag but a few to many pockets
I bought this for myself to use for school a few moths ago and it has held up great, (I'm not exactly very gentle on my bags). The only flaw is that in the largest compartment there are 2 smaller pocket things that are basically extra pieces of material on both edges of the compartment, while they are sturdy and helpful if you use folders and such but I use a large 3" binder and I find that it doesn't slide in as easily as it would if those weren't there as the bottom of the binder gets caught on those. Other than that it is a great bage with many pockets for organizing yet it is spacious and can fit a lot of stuff.
