Solid FeatherLight? Medium Backpack
Perfect size, love the built in sectioning of each pocket
My daughter loves this backpack & so do I. The built in dividers in each pocket are just wonderful. They will help to separate folders, extra clothes, snacks etc. Very happy with our purchase. I would recommend this backpack. We have currently used her other LandsEnd backpack for three school years now. It does not have any rips or tears. I toss it in the washer when it's looking a little dingy but it is still in great shape. Great backpacks & color options.

perfect size for my first grader. Most backpacks were too big for her, but this one is just right. Great amount of space for her lunch box and books.

Year after year I purchase L.E. backpacks for my Granddaughters. They're rugged and dependable. They hold up so well, the girls pass them on to their younger cousins to use another year!

Best for Prek-1st
Too small and not enough action for my 2nd grader. Beautiful bag for a younger child.

Great quality, nice fit for elementary school and up.
I purchased this backpack two years ago for my then Kindergartener and First Grader. They are now beginning their third school year using this backpack. My youngest started Kindergarten this year and was in need of a backpack so I didn't hesitate in going back to Land's End and purchasing it for her. The 2013 model is slightly different...I'd say improved...from the 2011 model. Occasionally there is a zipper issue with the zipper getting caught in the fabric, but not often. The new model has an added divider in the large compartment which I love. It makes keeping her take-home folder separate from her snack or jacket a snap where the other model just had one large compartment and we're always fishing through all their things. The only improvement I would suggest is the netting that is the side pockets. I always put their water bottle in that pocket and this year I had to sew up some holes in them. I had monogramming done on each of the three (then they each picked an appliqué that we sewed on) and the quality and workmanship is great! I'll be ordering this model again!

This pack pack was an excellent choice for our 3rd grader. It is very durable and the perfect size for her.
The quality is great and the size is perfect for our 8 year old.

Laptop sleeve needs to be removable!
I love the quality of this backpack. The colors are bright and vibrant, I just wish they would have used another color besides white! Who buys their kids white backpacks and lunchboxes? I bought this for my 8 year old but will be returning. Once I put her zippered binder in the back pack there is not much room for anything else. I feel that the laptop sleeve takes up too much space, and should be removable. If I size up to the large, I am afraid it will swallow my petite daughter!

Bag still in great shape 4 years later!
When our oldest daughter was in Kindergarten we bought her another brand of bookbag (cough couch, pottery barn, cough, cough) It fell apart around the middle of the year and I swore that I would do my research and not waste so much money again. For 1st grade, we did our homework and decided to try a FeatherLight backpack. It was retired (from school use only) when my daughter started 4th grade last year and needed a bigger backpack. It was PERFECT and still all these years later still looks new. Her original bag is still her bag of choice for overnights away and it's still her carry on bag when we travel. We bought her the matching lunchbox and now, even starting in 5th grade, she's still carrying it. It coordinates with her NEW Lands End bag and we couldn't be happier with the quality of all of our Lands End bags. When anyone asks for suggestions, we always recommend a Lands End Bag. Are they a little more than some of the others up front? Yes, but there are always coupons, and what you spend now will save you so much more in the years to come. My son is now ready for Kindergarten and he just picked out his first Lands End bookbag. Thank you Lands End for making one decision easy when it comes to back to school!
