Rated 5 out of 5 by Angelahas2sons Son loves it!
I saw a review of someone's that stated this backpack had very poor quality. I feared what I would receive. To my pleasure, it is great! My son loves it too! He loves all the compartments.

Rated 3 out of 5 by AustinTwinMom Not useful for our middle schoolers
My twins' old LE backpacks, bought when they were 4 years old, are still going strong and lasted through elementary and multiple trips overseas so we could not wait to buy new LE backpacks for middle school. This backpack, however, was a huge disappointment. It simply does not have the organizational features that kids need these days. Every compartment is a black hole requiring an archaeological dig to get things out. The back compartment, presumably for the laptop, does not unzip all the way and it is a struggle to put even one binder in there, rendering it basically a one compartment backpack. Kids these days need a front flap for devices, pens, etc, a middle section for random stuff, including a lunch bag, and the back should be large enough for binders and books. I had to sadly return this otherwise beautiful backpack. Bye bye, Lands End, you disappoint me. For high school we will be looking elsewhere for sure.

Rated 5 out of 5 by GeorgiaDecaturMom Great Backpack
Great pack. The front string/jacket holder works well. The small but hard top handle makes lifting easy. Capacity pretty good. Back section, probably meant for a laptop, could be bit wider to accomodate books instead of a computer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Sleeplessinde Everything fits!
My son has just started middle school and had more books, folders and binders than ever! His school does not have lockers so everything stays in his backpack. I was concerned about him lugging all that weight around all day and wanted to find a backpack that addressed this issue. Since we always get our backpacks from LE, I knew that would find what I was looking for. Their handy video showed exactly what would fit. When my son transferred all of the stuff from his old bag to the new one, it was large enough to fit everything plus had handy hooks to attach the lunch bag. Thanks again Lands End.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Tundramom17 Did not meet our needs
I purchased the large backpack for my fourth grader who needed a backpack to carry a 2 inch 3-ring binder, several text books, lunch and a few other random things. We have always had Lands' End backpacks and I've always been pleased with the quality. The fabric of this backpack seems sturdy and I liked that it is lightweight, but the design seems off. The large back zippered compartment was too small/narrow to fit the 3-ring binder. The middle compartment worked okay but we found no use for the back compartment. The smaller front compartment is very deep with no organizing pockets. Snacks/pencils/calculators/paperbacks got lost in it. While this might be a great back pack for some, sadly it did not fit our needs.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Gayln Too small for binder
I love Lands End back packs- they hold up well, but this one isn't big enough for my 5th grader to get his big binder in. I had it monogrammed so don't think I can return it. I tried to buy the x-large size, but by the time I got to check out, it was no longer available. His twin brother chose a classMate style and it works great!

Rated 4 out of 5 by SavageMike My kid loves it
My son needed a new backpack for school. This one is very high quality, and the light weight of the pack is awesome, especially with as much homework as kids get nowadays.
If I need to buy another one in the future, I am getting this one again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by ahauck good backpack.
So far,so good! My 8 yr old son, who is not gentle on anything is using this bag. It is a great size. Lots of space for what he needs to carry. He will use this for more than 1 yr for sure.
