Solid ClassMateŽ Medium Backpack
Great backpack to start school
I bought this backpack for my kindergartener and haven't regretted it. One of the best features, besides ample room inside, is the chest snap. It keeps the backpack securely on if he is running around and doesn't slip off. I bought this on sale but probably would have paid full price as it will last for a few years.

Excellent quality. Exactly as pictured.
This is my son's second LE backpack. The first one still looks brand new, despite being three years old. He needed a larger backpack for school folders. This one is the perfect size for an elementary student. The colors are very sharp and true to the photo. The yellow embroidery is quite visible and well done. The yellow is the perfect match to the trim. Very, very sturdy construction. Roomy with exterior pockets. He and I couldn't be more pleased.

We first purchased these backpacks for my son and daughter 4 years ago and the only reason we purchased new ones this year was because, after 4 years, my children wanted updated colors. I have recommended this backpack to other mothers I know who are frustrated with buying cheaper backpacks that barely make it through the school year. These definitely stand the test of time, making them an excellent value, and I assure you, my children have not been easy on them. I have found the size to be perfect for lower elementary students, even considering that we live in Iowa where the weather can change on a dime, and so we spend most of the school year packing it full of not only school supplies, but snowpants, hats, mittens, even boots and coats. My kids love these backpacks, love having the option of pesrsonalizing them, and I love that they are worth every penny.

Not even a month,and my sons zipper strap came off when I opened his bag today . When the ( 2 Bags ) arrived , my daughters bag's sternum cord was detached . I was told I could have a replacement and to send the bag back . Since school was going to start in a few days, I had it repaired . I did priority shipping so the items will get here in time ( I live in Malaysia). Should have stuck with the local stuff for half the price :-(

My son really likes it and it seems to be of good quality.
He is a teen and I would like it to be a little bigger. He likes to put his lunch box into pack and not outside.

My son loves his new backpack
I have purchased back packs in the past for my kids. My daughter is still carrying hers today and it is over 4 years old. My son was in need of a new back pack (his old one was a 15.00 backpack from a retail store...didn't last a year) so we ordered this one in black and yellow and had it monogrammed with his initials. He loves it and so do I. It has plenty of room for his books and lunchbox. Plenty of pockets too.

I typically don't review products but I had to take the time to rate this backpack. What a great product! In the past, my boys have used a competitor's backpack which has held up well under daily use and abuse. This year, after the zipper fell off one of our old backpacks, I decided to give Land's End a try. I was very pleased with how easy the zippers close and open, the fabric which is light-weight but tough and all the pockets (the inside pocket will be especially nice for shoes during boot season). After taking the boys to open house at school, I noticed lots of other kids carrying these backpacks too so I'm excited to see how these hold up this year!

Great Customer Service!
Before I ordered I knew this product would be of great quality. That's just the experience I always have with Land's End. However, this specific time my order came with one additional initial, OOPS! After we determined how this happened, realized that the first day of school was in 5 days, and my grandson was looking so forward to taking his backpack to school on the first day, Land's End actually corrected the error and sent out a new product that actually arrived in two days! My grandson actually said "Holy rush order"! I can't thank all involved enough for making his day! I will continue to bring my service to Land's End. You created a Great customer experience!

My daughter wanted a black backpack for second grade and picked this one. The embroidery is perfect and the bag is great! This is her second Lands End backpack and we would still be using her old one (it's in great shape!) if she hadn't grown out of it.
