School Uniform Solid FeatherLight™ Wheeled Large Backpack
Great Looking Bas
So far so good but it has only been in use less than a month. For me, I think it a perfect size for a 6th grader to carry all his books. Rolls easily and has a nice look. I'm sure if I have a serious issue with it before the end of the school year Lands End will stand by their product.

Great back pack
It is easy to carry and to pull around. My son uses it for school and when we travel.

Great rolling backpack book bag.
The handle could be a better quality

Would rate zero if I could
within a matter of weeks this backpack was fraying. the fabric is the opposite of durable and we are amazed that, held together by threads only, it made it to the last day of school. The storage was not great especially for the mandatory 1" 3 ring binder. At least the wheels and handle stayed on but LE needs to replace the fabric with something far more sturdy especially for this price point. We will never buy another backpack from LE again.

Great design, the right size, some improvements would make it perfect.
My son is going into Jr high and won't have lockers this year due to construction. He is about the size of an average 9 year old. So I hunted high and low for a lightweight rolling backpack, that was small enough that he could carry it, but big enough to hold all of his textbooks. I bought a High Sierra backpack, which looked amazing online, and it was (had all the features below that I want) but it was almost 7 lbs EMPTY and way too big for my son to carry. So I returned it and bought this one. While this is very tall (as most rolling backpacks are) at least it is fairly light and had the most important features.
Pros - lightweight, internal pocket are deep and hold a laptop or big folder, internal laptop protector case is removable, really big, rolls easily, handle adjusts for shorties, water bottle pockets & bungees are very useful. My son loves the design.
Cons - REALLY big, but I have a small-for-his-age child so everything dwarfs him. Front pocket would be nice if it had more organizational pockets and opened wider. When the laptop case is removed, the internal pocket is cavernous. I wish the handle retracted completely into the bag, it sticks out the top about an inch. I also wish the back flap covered the wet/dirty wheels when it converts into backpack (with little elastic covers or flaps.) A bit pricey.
I don't yet know how it will hold up to daily abuse, but I have the Land's End warranty to back me up if it doesn't!
