Rated 5 out of 5áby Checkersxoxo I LOVE THIS BACKPACK
I am a college junior who commutes and there are days when I have a huge time gap between classes so I carry A LOT of stuff with me those days. My old backpack could not hold it well leaving me with terrible back pain and the backpack ripping and breaking. I was looking at LLBean for backpacks since I know they are durable. I only had 3 requirements when looking for a new backpack: durable, laptop sleeve, and at least one side pocket for a water bottle. I am happy to say this product has everything I could ask for and more!!! There is so much more padding on the shoulder straps and the back of the backpack which helps tremendously with carrying a lot of heavy objects. If anyone is looking for a durable, awesome backpack. Pick this one. It's amazing.

Rated 5 out of 5áby alwayscoldCT Best Backpack EVER
I definitely could be known as the bag lady for all the things I am constantly carrying around... Small backpack, purse, lunch box, coat, even an extra bag for work clothes sometimes. I am so glad I bought this backpack!!! I am a college student and I have carried things around like this all 4 years of college until I finally bought this backpack!
For starters there is so much room for everything! I can carry my books and laptop, even two meals! When you are a commuter to campus its a pain walking bak and forth to your car as if it was a locker so instead and I can carry everything at once.
THE BEST PART about this backpack is definitely that it doesn't hurt my back. As someone who has back problems I am always concerned about not doing things that will make it feel pain. This backpack is great because even when I have it fully loaded it doesn't bother my back. I use both the clips when I wear it (even though I look super nerdy) and there is so much support. Even when I don't have it clipped the bag doesn't weigh my back down because the weight is so well distributed.
I got it in the light purple color but it isn't available anymore. This backpack is fantastic in any color.
MY ONLY REGRET is not buying it sooner!!

Rated 5 out of 5áby YearRounder So Much More than the Video Reveals
I am so pleased with my new Quad pack. I had the Stowaway pack for dog walks and walking commute but when it finally wore out I went for the Quad. It is more durable, has much more room and has more pockets and compartments that really work. Something you don't see in the video or photos is the stuff pouch under the front flap with the clip. You can access it more easily by pulling down a diagonal right hand zipper visible on the front. The left hand diagonal zipper is a fleece lined pouch for sunglasses etc. There's another fleece pouch that unzips across the top of the flap. The main (rear) compartment holds a ton of groceries or books, the middle compartment could hold a large text book and 5 subject notebook easily, plus it has many large and small sleeves and pouches for pens, wallets, journal, assignment book, you name it. You can load a laptop in the main/rear compartment through the top into a sleeve, or in a separate side pouch accessible from the outside. Both are padded and the pack is well padded on the back. A lot of bells and whistles but all o f them are so usable. I love this pack. Good for a weekend, a commuter who wants extra room for grocery pickup, and a student with many books. Built to last!

Rated 5 out of 5áby LawWifeTeacher Withstands Law Textbooks!
I bought this bookbag for my husband before he started Law School two years ago. I called in and spoke to a representative because we weren't sure what backpack would withstand the kind of abuse we knew it was going to take. They suggested the Quad - so we got it and hoped it would handle the load.
Fast forward two years - my husband is about to begin his 3L year and graduate in May, but the Quad Backpack is still going strong! It has survived huge & heavy textbooks, a laptop, tons of highlighters, and being beaten up as it gets shoved in his locker.
Thanks L.L. Bean for helping Jeremy get through Law School with a reliable, dependable backpack!

Rated 5 out of 5áby 12marr My favorite backpack!
Completely satisfied with this backpack! I bought the original quad pack going into my junior year of high school and also used it this past year as a senior. There are now two small tears in the pack so I have just ordered a new one to exchange it. LLBean has been very accommodating during the process and have apologized several times for my ripping backpack. I am also getting the quad backpack for the same price that I spent on the original quad pack which was sixteen dollars less. I love this pack and would suggest it to anyone!

Rated 3 out of 5áby NOLATrish Laptop Compartment Not As Described
This is a beautiful backpack, but my daughter's laptop (exterior measurements: 14.75 inches by 10.5 inches) is much to large for the laptop sleeve. The product description says that the sleeve "accommodates most 15" laptops," so this is a big disappointment.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Absolutely Quad Pack
This is an excellent backpack for most occasions. It is a great hiking or day pack, and is even better as a work or school bag. The only issue is that the pockets in the middle compartment with the key-ring are a bit inconvenient. All in all though, a really great backpack.

Rated 5 out of 5áby UofMforever Fantastic Quad Backpack
Best backpack ever! My son has used his the last two years of high school & 1st year of college. The quality is outstanding! I upgraded my high school daughter's LL Bean backpack to the Quad. She needed a bigger backpack. I'm sure they will each get great use out of them for quite a long time. They highly recommend them. You don't get any better than LL Bean backpacks!

Rated 4 out of 5áby CCarhart Comfortable, Spacious, Great Features
The "Quad Pack" is a great backpack for $80. I got this backpack when I was going into 6th grade and it lasted until end of the first quarter in high school ( I will explain later why it is not 5 stars). This backpack has some awesome features for middle schoolers and high schoolers for instance the ear buds out the back, plenty of storage, and a slick design compared to other backpacks. I loved this backpack and I used it for many things such as school, trips, vacation, airsoft. Now, will all good things there is a negative. This backpacks shoulder straps attached to the bookbag started to dis-attach from the bookbag from wear and tear and I had to send it in for a new one. Other then that this backpack is well worth the money.
