Rated 4 out of 5 by SRCALCMLCLMC Super deluxe backpack
I bought this for my granddaughter. She loves it. Likes the extra padded straps and back. Says it is very comfortable to wear. She seems very impressed with the durability of it also. My only complaint is I ordered it in mid November for a Christmas present and it was back ordered and didn't arrive til 3rd week of January. Otherwise I would have given it 5 stars.

Rated 5 out of 5 by 2collegekids boy rugged, last for years.
I had first purchased this backpack for my son when he was a freshman in high school. He is finishing his senior year and just now it is showing signs of wear on the straps where it attaches to the backpack. All the zippers still work and show no weak signs of over stuffing. I have just recently purchased another one to finish out his senior year and take him into college. So far the construction is still sturdy and spacious enough to hold the weight of all his school necessities, and I would certainly recommend it. There is not many products that last as long as this backpack did and take the rough and toughness of a growing man.

Rated 5 out of 5 by jazzyj Used for heavy load at school
Purchased this bag via website and when it came I was very happy to see that it's exactly like the picture and the item description.
This bag has been used for a few weeks now and it's nice to see that my son can carry all his school books, binders, lunch box and laptop all in one bag with plenty of room. The only downfall is because it does fit EVERYTHING we now have to monitor what he puts in it for the weight. Don't want it to heavy to hurt the back.
Due to the fit & size, this backpack would be more appropriate for a teen to adult.
The only thing I'd like to see is the water bottle pockets being deeper (taller). It does fit a regular size water bottle fine, but if it's a larger bottle I like it more secure with a higher mesh pocket.

Rated 5 out of 5 by InlandNorthwestMom Big enough for Middle Schoool!
My middle school son, who has to bring home 4 binders and text books every night, plus music for orchestra needed a big backpack that wouldn't break from the weight. This is it! This is the ONLY one we found big enough and sturdy enough. Wish they would have been making this 3 years ago when my daughter was the same age!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Chrissy06 It's a great investment
This backpack is so durable and sturdy. It's zippers and tracks are made with quality. It fits so much yet it's organized in each compartment so even little items are stored safely. Of course it makes the perfect weekend suitcase as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by llbeanshopper43211 big back pack
My 6th grader needed a sturdy, large back pack and this one fits the bill. Just wish it was a little lighter. Empty it weighs more than the old LL Bean backpack he had.

Rated 5 out of 5 by eec1x1 kid approved
This particular bag received approval from 14 year old who (politely) turned down monogrammed bag of smaller size . . . fortunately we know another young person with the same unusual name, This product is well constructed and should provide the same service as the bag it is replacing . . . that bag made it through 5th through 8th grades! We trust this one will see her through the 12th grade. Thank you for your quality products!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Abcd567 Perfect
This is the perfect backpack for my high schooler. It hold his many notebooks, books, laptop, gym clothes, water bottle, folders, and even his drumsticks with room to spare. It has reflectors for walking to the bus stop in the dark. It's well made and should last for years.

Rated 5 out of 5 by nxs000 Great Backpack!
I bought this backpack for my grandson who started attending college. He was specific about what he wanted. We had to wait about 3 months since it was on back order. I like the advantage of if anything goes wrong with it, I can send it back and it will be taken care of.

Rated 5 out of 5 Wonderful!!!
I love this book bag! As a busy college student, and a mom, it has really come in handy since I received it as a birthday gift. Plenty of space, and the laptop sleeve is great. It has held up really well, even with 4 heavy textbooks, plus notebooks, and my laptop at times. Would recommend to anyone that needs a roomy, durable book bag.
