Rated 5 out of 5áby kids02 middle school
this was bought for my daughter who is in middle school who is not aloud a real back pack so we tried this and so far it doesn't hurt her shoulders or back to use it.

Love the pack, it's light weight and i am able to fit more than I expected without the bulkyness of other back packs, would recommend it to everyone.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Rimisujr Just What I Needed.
Perfect small bag to use for everyday use. Lightweight, yet durable and stronger than you would think. I like the straps as opposed to strings on other brands. Would be perfect at amusement parks. Would be nice if it had an outer water bottle holder and perhaps another small compartment inside for cell phone. It does have a small outside pocket which is convenient. Overall, this bag does exactly what I need it to. Recommend if you're looking for a nice day bag.

Seem to be well made, the straps were the selling point on these, no more string thing, a little more comfort around the shoulder!

Rated 5 out of 5áby Nanna07 Good value
I wanted something to pack my iPad in so I wouldn't have to carry it around in my hands while visiting Disney World with my grandchildren. This worked out great. It is big enough to hold the iPad, cell phones and wallet. Plus room for bottle water and snacks. It is light weight and it doesn't dig into your back like other back packs. Plus it is well made like all of LL Bean products. I just wish other companies had the great customer service that you get from LL Bean.

Rated 5 out of 5áby shac supper light weight
My daughter has a small frame and school bags and backpacks tend to run big and heavy. Most school bags add an extra 3 lbs to the already heavy books and binders. A roller bag is even worse if you have any stairs at your home or school. But this backpack is supper light so all the weight she is carrying is just from books and not the bag.

Rated 5 out of 5áby TNGal70 Great Pack
My 11 year daughter picked this out....and loved the blue color. It weighs almost nothing and is great for a little daypack. She uses it often for going to friends or grandparents house. Haven't used it on a hike yet....doesn't have a waist strap or compartment for a water bladder. So not sure it would be the best for hiking.

Rated 3 out of 5áby razz4tazz liteweight okay
this bag is okay for light errands only--just needs some more outside pockets, and maybe one more for the interior.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Nhikon Perfect fit. Lightweight and comfortable. A++
I have been searching for the "perfect" everyday backpack for quite some time. I've purchased countless bags over the years but have not found any that served my needs. They were either too big, bulky, or the shoulder straps would bite into my shoulders. It has been a long journey trying to find one that didn't make me look like a 5'0 woman with a turtle shell on my back. Hahaha. I just wanted something simple, lightweight, and comfortable. Can't be that hard right?
I came across the LL Bean Cinch Pack while searching the internet, yet again. I was skeptical at first even though it seemed to meet all my criterias.... as all the others I've bought and given away. But after asking a couple of questions on Live Chat (which btw was awesome), I decided to go ahead an place my order. I was also looking at their Stowaway Day Pack (Gray) but they were backordered until the 22nd and I wanted something as soon as possible for my photography walks.
WOW!!! I am extremely happy with this Black Cinch Pack. It fits all my needs and I no longer look like a turtle. Hahaha. It has gone everywhere with me. The quality is top notch. I was afraid that the ripstop material was going to be big, heavy, and rough but it is very lightweight. Sure, I wish there was more pockets but I'm happy with the one that was included.... at least with that, I can carry both my wallet and iPhone. And the best part about that zippered pocket is that I don't have to take the pack off in order to get my wallet or iPhone out. I love the look and feel of the pack. I was a bit worried about the shoulder straps being a bit rough and cutting in my armpit area but that is not the case at all. My hubby, chihuahua, and I have gone on a 4 mile photography walk and I totally forgot that I had it on.
I also ordered the Stowaway Day Pack for times that I would need a bit more storage. I am so pleased that I found LL Bean and the Cinch Pack. LL Bean's customer support is amazing. I've contacted them with questions and was able to talk to someone right away. This was my first time ordering anything from LL Bean. And it's the BEST first time purchase from a company in a very long time.
I would highly recommend LL Bean and this Cinch Pack. Great lightweight pack for everyday use.
Thank you LL Bean for great quality products and amazing customer service. :)
