Rated 5 out of 5 by allisondaly Cute backpack but zipper pull has frayed after only 2 months of use
I bought this backpack for my 6-year-old daughter. I really like this backpack. I love the fact that an entire first name can be monogrammed. The rainbow zebra pattern is very cute. The backpack washes well. However, after just 2 months of use one of the zipper pulls has already frayed. This is disappointing given LE's quality. I will likely buy my daughter another LE's backpack, but I would prefer that this not happen again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Krisi512 The backpack is durable and very cute.
Made this purchase for my 3 yr old for preschool. The quality of the backpack is great. It's been tossed, dropped, thrown, and been through lunch time messes. It's easily cleaned this I appreciate.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Cabbageprincess Great colour & embroidery plus it arrived on time for school.
Great pack for lil one starting jk. Had purchased a cheap $12 back pack & zipper broke by first day! This pack is very durable and helps balance our lil one by support strap in the front.

Rated 5 out of 5 by sjwilson Great Construction, Great Design
Our daughter's backpack is absolutely perfect for her starting out her kindergarten year. The design is simple with sturdy zippers and not an overabundance of pockets for leftover yogurt pouches and goldfish to hideout in. The material feels very durable and has thus far performed extraordinarily over the first month of school drops, drags, and puddle dunks on the way to and from the bus stop. We did both the monogramming and the stitched design and both are exactly as well ordered. The straps were easily adjusted to get just the right fit and they are well padded. I know it's been a popular choice for parents as about 1 in 5 kids around school are sporting Lands End backpacks. I'd say thus far it's been a great buy and only time will tell if it can stand up to the rigors of elementary school.

Rated 5 out of 5 by KellySue2 Love the leopard print backpack!
Got the leopard print for my 1st grader, embroidered in the recommended color- love it! The quality is obvious. The side mesh pockets were a must because my daughter's school requires a water bottle be brought to/from every day; no issues noted with the quality of these (as some prior comments stated). We got the matching SoftSide Lunch Box and it fits into the outside pocket of the backpack. Love these products- worth the money!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Katemilia So glad I bought this backpack!
My oldest daughter is in grade 9 this year, and has gone through countless backpacks over the years - usually averaging 2 or three for each school year - even more expensive backpacks from bag stores or sports stores could not withstand this kid, so when my middle child started school this year, I thought about all the money I'd save buying her a backpack made to actually last - so on the recommendation of a family member who swears by Lands End backpacks and will buy nothing else for her two kids - I purchased this backpack. Well, color me impressed! First of all, my daughter loves the pattern and that it has her name embroidered on it AND it matches her lunch kit! I love that it's got reflectors on it, the chest strap that keeps it securely in place, the huge amount of space inside while still being a small enough bag to not overwhelm a 5 year old who's carrying it, the bottle holder on the side that's reinforced and actually HOLDS her water bottle securely (her friend lost a water bottle the first day of school because her backpack's water bottle holder doesn't work at all!), and the material that's vibrant and sturdy! The straps are well-padded and fit amazingly! I look forward to having this backpack for the next few years until she needs to size-up. It's excellently made, and I don't regret my purchase in the least! I'm actually going to purchase a large one with matching lunch kit for my oldest too!

Rated 5 out of 5 by WisconsinMom9 Excellent, lightweight backpack
This is a great, lightweight backpack and my girls (4 years and 6 years) love the clip on the chest to help keep it in place. It seems plenty durable and dries well after some rain. Much better than the heavier backpacks that stained easily and were too much for my girls to manage.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Leslie42 Shoddy workmanship
I bought this backpack for my grand daughter for going back to school & on the very first day one of the straps that tighten the shoulder straps ripped. Unfortunately I live in NY & she lives in NC otherwise I would have returned it!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Lakeitha Cute backpack
Daughter loved the style and color. I would have liked the material to be a bit more thicker, but we'll see how it goes. She thought her initials on the back was a great idea. Thanks for making her first day of 4th grade special!

Rated 5 out of 5 by WeeklyLEShopper Very satisfied with the quality and design.
Typical children's backpacks have bad plastic lining that peels off shortly after use, but this one has the polyester lining inside, so we can use it definitely longer!
