Rated 5 out of 5 by CWfanInVirginia Ideal for 10 year olds
Sent one each to grandchildren. They like the shape (not like a regular bookbag) and its light weight. It would be nice if names could be sewn on the cinch bag.

Rated 5 out of 5 by skibikehikelover Just right.
I was looking for a smaller but secure pack to use while downhill skiing, cross country skiing or bicycling, This one with the shoulder straps are so much better than the string kind which is why I ordered it. Took it skiing and it worked great. It did not slip off while skiing or chair riding. The only thing that could be improved are the straps. They could be made of a stronger fabric but not as thick as a padded strap etc. Awesome for my needs overall.

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 5 by 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 5 by 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 5 by 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 5 by 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.
