Rated 1 out of 5 by ArmyColonel from Can't take the Strain As a native Mainah I have supported L.L. Bean for years. Let me begin my review by saying my children have owned several book bags and rucksacks from L.L. Bean that have lasted for years and have only been replaced after being outgrown or become so dirty from tough use that they were no longer "presentable". However after waiting more than three months for this back-logged item to be delivered, the seam along where the straps meet the top of the bag ripped out after only four months of use. This bag cannot handle the weight required of a sixth grader's text books, binders and homework. Perhaps I received a lemon but I cannot recommend this particular product.

Rated 3 out of 5 by LLparent from Almost great This backpack despite being lightweight, durable, and large enough to haul schoolwork has two major flaws. The side pockets for water bottles are too short and loose. I have tried a variety of thermoses, bottles, padding etc and still everything falls out of the pocket when my son bends down, picks up pack, or turns quickly. Two thermoses have been damaged. Additionally this is a large capacity backpack and should include a chest clip to help secure a heavy backpack and allow for better posture. Please LL bean make improvements to this backpack. The transit backpack seems to have these two improvements just not the same capacity for books and binders.

Rated 2 out of 5 by pcox104 from Cheaper materials I've used LL Bean backpacks for nearly 20 years. I had friends who were using these bags in 1st grade. I could tell after receiving this backpack in the mail that the materials and craftsmanship were not up to par with my other LL Bean backpacks (or luggage). I grabbed my old LL Bean backpack that I'm currently using, and sure enough, the padding is less all around in the new bag, the straps are thinner, the canvas is thinner, and there is a weird piece of plastic in the back (which, for having a laptop pocket, you'd think you want more padding, not less). Overall, this bag feels like the old bag with a bunch of corners cut. It's worth about $39, not full price at $59.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JanieFromBOS from Reliable and Stuffable I did a lot of shopping before settling on the Super Deluxe LLBean pack. I wanted a large capacity pack for travel - mostly to be able to stuff in my camera gear, papers, and purse and use it as a "personal item" in addition to a carry-on when traveling. I love the compartments and sturdiness. The padding is comfortable. It is heavy though. I knew this, but felt it a bit when traveling in a hot climate this winter. It's a tradeoff. My only real issue is the water bottle pockets - too shallow. For any reasonable sized bottle for travel, it pops out. I wish there were at least three more inches of the netting on the pockets. But other than that, the pack is all they say and I am glad I have it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Pumelo from Sturdier than the user My 7th grader needs to carry a lot of books around. Too much, to the extent that he pulled a muscle However, the backpack remains in great shape after 4 months of heavy use. I wish the school would allow roller packs but I guess there is not enough space in the lockers to stow them. My only suggestion is the water bottle pocket is not deep enough to hold a 24 oz bottle. A 16 oz bottle is not enough for him. I know that because of the position of the zippers, the mesh pocket does not have a lot of length for its position, however, LL Bean may consider adding a strap and buckle above the mesh pocket to secure the bottle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by 2collegekids from boy rugged, last for years. I had first purchased this backpack for my son when he was a freshman in high school. He is finishing his senior year and just now it is showing signs of wear on the straps where it attaches to the backpack. All the zippers still work and show no weak signs of over stuffing. I have just recently purchased another one to finish out his senior year and take him into college. So far the construction is still sturdy and spacious enough to hold the weight of all his school necessities, and I would certainly recommend it. There is not many products that last as long as this backpack did and take the rough and toughness of a growing man.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jess1024 from Perfect size I love this bag. I used it when I was backpacking through Europe. I had another suitcase that I left at my main location, but was gone for a week with just this bag and it was amazing. I was able to fit everything I needed in there. It was very comfortable to wear and was great as my carry on luggage. I really liked that it had several different compartments to keep everything organized and a spot to keep my iPad. The material is thinner than I expected, but it was very durable. I was debating between this one and a North Face bag, but ultimately chose this one b/c of size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Cindysh from The book bag for the kid with lotsa stuff My middle school son has his homeroom in one building and his locker in another building, and 5 minutes between classes...which are sometimes in a third location. Suffice to say, he carries all his books with him. He's not supposed to but he said he doesn't have time to do anything else. This book is the answer to our prayers. I previously bought the more expensive Quad backpack but its tapered streamlined style just did not cut it...the books did not even fit in. This, fits the bill to a TEE. The book bag looks great too. Win-Win. Love it.
