Solid FeatherLight? Wheeled Large Backpack
Wheeled Backpack A+
Love the color combo. Several of my daughters classmates and teachers have also commented positively on them as well. It's only the 3rd week of school and my daughter is testing the bags durability. She often pulls the handle up and down and wheels her bag all around. It's a little big for her but I knew that when I purchased it. She will have it for the remainder of her elementary years. My older daughter has one that she got 2 years ago and it is still in great shape.

I'd rather be wheeling . . .
My 7th grader wisely decided to go with a wheeled backpack and stop carrying all her books around like a turtle. So far, it's working out great.

Works well and it's cute!
I returned a two-year-old wheeled backpack to Lands End when the handle was no longer functioning. I received a full refund from LE- what a great company to work with! This new backpack has a handle that works much more smoothly. The padded compartment inside will be great if/when my daughter needs to begin bringing her own computer to school. Very happy with this one!

backpack looks just like the image and holds up really well.
it is sturdy, large enough for all the books, folders to fit comfortably. i love the water bottle holders. and my daughter loves having her name monogramed on the front. my son used his all year last year and is using the same one this year. we walk two blocks to school every day, and the wheels have never failed us!!!

My daughter loves this backpack, the wheels make it easy to get around and it actually stands up on its own. Her only complaint was the lack of color choices.

Lands' End backpacks are great
We have bought backpacks from Lands' End for several years. They are very sturdy and last the entire school year. Even when they are stuffed to the brim they do not rip or tear.

This particular backpack has some problems
We have purchased LE backpacks for years and until this year all has been good. For this model, both main zipper pulls came off within the first month of owning. Then within about 6 weeks the mesh for the water bottle started ripping. The biggest issue with this model is the stability of the pack. Not sure if it's due to the single bar in the center (previous models we bought had a dual bar) but it's is constantly tipping around. My 10 year old daughter has a tough time manipulating it around corners - it tends to roll over. This is probably why the mesh pocket was ripping early - the sides of the pack were getting beat up. We still love LE, but will definitely be returning this one and getting a different design.

My parents purchased this backpack for my 3rd grader & the handle broke. I contacted LE to replace & the new backpack's zipper broke after 2 months of use. I agree with one of the other comments that I wished it was bigger because it can't hold all the books/binders. Returning the 2nd backpack. Not sure I will try this model again.

Very nice backpack. Sturdy and well made.
This is the 4th backpack bought for my 3rd grade daughter this year. Wheels broke off, straps tore, holes began to appear at the bottoms of the other backpacks, so I decided to upgrade and try this one. She loves the backpack. The handle is long for her (she is 4'3") so she only pulls it up half way and that works for her. She puts 3 hardback books and 1 workbook in it every day. It can hold maybe one more hardback book but not more than that. The books are about an 1 1/2 inches thick. It is roomy enough for 3rd grade but maybe not for middle school. We took the laptop section out to give us more room. Overall, I'm hoping this bag will last us a few years before having to buy a new one.

Excellent, Sturdy, Roomy, Versatile
I've had this for about a month and I love it! I needed a rolling backpack and laptop case for work. This fits the bill, perfectly. I use public transit most days and cart my laptop back and forth to work every day. I needed something that would stand up to the daily wear and tear and roll smoothly in the office. The laptop/tablet sleeve protects my laptop. There is enough room for files, books, lunch, and all the other things that go back and forth from the office with me every day. The in-line skate wheels roll smoothly all the time and stand up to the street and sidewalk, yet move silently through my office. The telescoping handle adjusts well and the whole pack feels very sturdy.I know that it will continue to hold up well.
