Rated 5 out of 5 by Ana09 from Looks great, feels great, practical! I'm already in love with this backpack. The navy actually has a neat, subtle iridescence to it, so that the backpack is timeless without being boring or stodgy. I also really like how it has two drink pockets as well. The book pack is extremely spacious, and the monogramming looks very nice without being ostentacious. I have yet to say on longetivity, but I bought this book pack because I wanted something practical and durable, and I've heard nothing but good things about this one from clasmates and online reviewers alike. I can't wait to bring it to college, and beyond! The only thing that I recommend is a wider range of colors; this would look stunning in yellow, and I'd love for LL Bean to bring back the soft/carnation pink!

Rated 1 out of 5 by rollergirlajc from Disappointing My 3 children have used LL Bean book packs since they started preschool at 2 years old. They started with the Jr. book pack and in 4th grade got the larger, deluxe book pack to fit their larger books. After 7 years of using the jr. bag year round for both school and camp my son got the larger bag and used it for 2 years. At the beginning of this year the zipper got stuck and while trying to get it unstuck the zipper became disconnected. I brought it into the store and they said there was nothing I could do except buy another one. I guess they don't make them like they used to and they no longer stand behind their products. Very disappointed customer. I will never buy from LLBean again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by jw900 from Love this pack but need more gender neutral colors We love these book packs! However, what I would like to see is more colors for boys or just more gender neutral colors. My son doesn't want dahlia purple or mint. So his choices in the prints and solid colors currently available for this deluxe bookpack are black, navy or red... Even the prints that use more gender neutral colors like the orange prism he sees as still a bit feminine for him, and he is not a camo kid.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SpecialK92 from More Color Choices Please This book bag is great. They last a long time if you take good care of them and they have a lot of room for you to put all of you school supplies. All these color choices are great. But, I wish you'd over us more colors to pick from like Sky Blue, Lime Green, Plum, Orange, Green, Sliver, Yellow, and some of the other colors that you offered back in the 90's and early to mid 00's.

Rated 3 out of 5 by KCro74 from Water bottle holder is too small. This is a fantastic basic backpack. The biggest complaint is that the side pockets don't properly hold a decent size water bottle. My middle schooler can't carry his nice LL Bean stainless steel water bottle because it is constantly falling out, and when it falls out, it is very loud. The last think you want in middle school is to draw unwanted attention to yourself, even if it is just from your water bottle hitting the floor in the middle of class. His water bottle isn't even that big. Just a 20 oz Kleen Kanteen. I might try to rig an elastic loop so he can start carrying his water bottle again. For now, he is using a smaller plastic (gasp!) one. Aside from the lousy water bottle pocket, it is a good bag.

Rated 5 out of 5 by NerdyChick from One Tough Pack! Bought my first LL Bean pack in 1984. It performed through middle school, high school, and college. These things are amazingly tough! Love the roomy sections and the organizer for pens/pencils/accessories in the front pouch. The upgrades for electronic devices are a great touch. Looking forward to my second pack giving my 10+ years of service. Thank you LL Bean for such great products! P.S. I do wish you still offered the leather bottom option. Miss that....

Rated 5 out of 5 by ClassicStyleLover from SuperStrong Bookbag I purchased this Deluxe model because I had the Super Deluxe before and it is a little too big for me. I wanted a little smaller than the Super Deluxe and the mesh pockets on the sides to put my water bottles. I had my initials monogrammed (in the same color as the bag) so I can ID my bag without having the contrasting colors staring at me. I am glad I waited because the previous version did not have the pockets on the side - which is a must for me. I like the fact that my liquid will be outside and not get anything else wet inside (either spilling or from condensation).

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous from Very comfortable love the new drink pockets I love that LLBean added the drink pockets on the side of the back pack. This has been needed for years. Super convenient.
