My daughter loves the lightweight feel of this school bag.

My daughter loves the lightweight feel of this school bag. She has only had it for 2 weeks now but it seems pretty durable. I also like that Lands End backs their products.

I have bought all my children's book bags from Lands End and have never be disappointed. Her last one is still good, the only reason she got a new one was she started middle school.

This large backpack is very useful for my 9 y.o. granddaughter who has lots of textbooks, folder, tablets to carry from school to home and back.

The size including the number of pockets are needed to store/carry not only school supplies, books, etc. but also a hoodie and water bottle. There is still room for more things. I just wish that you make a similar size backpack with wheels/retractible handle as it's very heavy when fully loaded down with textbooks.

I bought this for my 9 year old. Land's End had better colors than some other options out there. She hasn't used it yet, but she absolutely loves the color (aqua) and it holds a lot of stuff. She is about 53-54" tall and I think this backpack will fit for years. I'm only giving it a 4 because I'm not sure how it will hold up yet.

Have been using Small and Medium backpacks for years. Got the Large backpack for the first time.

Haven't used the Classmate Large backpack yet. But it looks sturdy and well made. I was a bit hesitant about ordering the Large backpack after reading some of the reviews (that the bag fell apart after a few weeks). But then took a chance and ordered it online, hoping that it will turn to be of the same good quality as the small and medium bags.
I have been purchasing small and medium backpacks for my kid from the past 4 to 5 years. They always turn out to be of excellent quality, no complaints. The only reason we get a new bag every year is that we want a new design or a bigger size bag. We still have the old backpacks and they are in good condition. A few things that I like best about LE bags are that they have a outside front pocket, where kids can keep the warm/cold weather accessories like hats, glasses & gloves, otherwise these things get lost among textbooks. Second these bags have very smooth and sturdy zippers, they never get stuck. Last, the two outside pockets to keep water bottle are very useful.
I hope that LE Large backpack turns out to be as durable as the small and medium backpacks. Thank you.

Looks great, but not very durable

I have purchased Lands End backpacks in past years and found them to be of high quality, easily able to last an entire school year. And, at $49, I would expect the same with this backpack. However, that hasn't been my experience.
I purchased this backpack in turquoise for my 10 year old just before school began this year. She uses this backpack everyday to carry her books and other school items back and forth to school. The backpack is very cute. I paid extra to personalize with monogramming of her name and a small image. Within a few weeks of use the sternum strap began to fray and then completely broke a few weeks later. After 4 months, the backpack is coming apart at the seams. I don't think it will even make it through the calendar year much less the school year.
I was very disappointed in the durability of this pack given the price point.
