Rated 5 out of 5 by momofthreetoronto Comfortable! Roomy!
I bought this backpack for outings with children and for travel. It is very roomy, my large laptop fits inside, plus water bottles, snacks and other essentials. the shoulder straps are soft, and the weight is distributed evenly. The fabric seems durable, zippers work well. Unfortunately, I did not get to use it very much, as my 13 year old son decided he wanted it. The only thing I do not like at LLBean is high taxes and duties Canadians have to pay.

I bought this pack for my wife and she absolutely loves it! Lots of space and excellent quality material and zippers! Another high quality product you come to expect from LLBean. Great pack!

I have the large LL Bean Messenger Bag. A bout of Sciatica made carrying the messenger bag impossible. I decided to try the Rally Pack backpack. It's perfect for me. It's relatively small, but still large enough to hold everything I had in the large messenger bag. It has padding in the shoulder straps, back shoulder panels and across the lower back. It appears to be extremely well made and durable. Kudos to LL Bean for fast delivery. I ordered it with monogramming and received it the very next day!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Celena Good Quality not the best layout
I love llbean backpacks they are such high quality. I originally had the llbean deluxe backpack (lasted for 9 years with serious abuse on the backpack). I figured I would try a new backpack so I tried the rally pack. I was aware that this backpack was smaller than the deluxe but the way the backpack is design, I can't really fit as many books/things in my backpack as I thought I could. I wish that there was only one big zipper and then a small zipper in the front because I think my things would fit better. It's not the actually size of the backpack that is the problem, but the layout that isn't very efficient.

Rated 5 out of 5 by newfmom25 durable, great looking
I bought this for my college aged daughter to replace the LL Bean backpack she has used and abused almost daily from 7th grade ( my other children still use their similarly aged Bean backpacks) It appears to be as well made as it's predecessor - ask me again in 10 years. This backpack is good looking and has lot of covienient compartments. I know she will get many years of good use from this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mecajewel This will meet a students needs
I purchased this for a 12 year old child in need as a Christmas gift. I believe she will be thrilled with it. She has gone without many things, this will make school a bit easier for her. I rest assured that if anything go wrong with it, she is in good hands at L.L. Bean.
Thank you for your wonderful customer service, it keeps me coming back.

This is the second backpack we've purchased from L.L. Bean. I'm willing to spend a little more when I know the product will last more than one school year. My kids are junior high and high school so these backpacks get put to the test.

I got this to go with a laptop as a present for a college student. She was delighted! The laptop compartment is well padded and her favorite part was the cellphone pocket on the strap, positioned so that she can still reach her phone while wearing the backpack.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SonyaGracie Everything fits!
My daughter started middle school, and couldn't fit her 3 binders, lunch and books into her older backpack she's had since 2nd grade. It was time to upgrade and this backpack does the trick, and them some. Not only does it fit everything for school, she absolutely LOVES it. And knowing its LLbean, I am confident it was last.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JodiW Largest most Durable Student Backpack!
My Middle School age son has had many different backpacks all of which were either too small or fell apartment within a couple of months. This one's a winner! Very durable construction, comfortable padding for his back and large enough for all his binders and books. The best part is the sides are adjustable so when there's a smaller load it can be pulled tight and reduces in size by 50%! I would highly recommend this backpack!
