I purchased this backpack for my 4th grader and I really like all of the pockets, especially the water bottle side pocket. I would have put an Excellent review but the handle on his backpack does not push back down properly, you really have to wiggle it. Also the zipper on the big pocket is difficult to zip. I purchased a different model Calpak for my other child and it did not have any handle or zipper issues. The issue may have been a manufacturer defect specific to the backpack purchased, I am unsure. I am still pleased with the backpack because the price was very affordable for a rolling backpack.
We purchased this because our son has already gone through 2 different brands this school year.
So far, this one is holding up well
Nothing has gone wrong with this product, I hope that it lasts the remainder of this year and next

I have a son who is in fourth grade and after half a year of lugging a backpack that is half his weight, i decided to try a rolling backpack like his sister has. Unfortunately, the telescoping stopped at about 5 inches the second or third day. He is pretty rough with his stuff so it may be due to that, hence, the three starts, however, given the reviews, i was hoping to get through to the end of the year. Since it does telescope a little, he can still roll it, but it's not the correct height. I compared it to my daughter's (2nd grade) backpack, which seems a better design....next time I'll stick with what I know....
Please tell us about the quality of the product. the handles stopped pulling all the way up after the second or third day of use.
After reading several reviews, I purchased 3 of these back packs for my children and so far everything is great. My children ages 10, 8, 8 are enjoying them. They have plenty of space inside for all their books. I was looking for back packs with side pockets for water and umbrellas, which these have. They also have very long handle, where some of the back packs I read about did not. So....as I said...so far so good!
I purchased this rolling backpack for my son at the beginning of the 2012 school year. The backpack did not make it until the end of the school year. The bottom plastic broke and then the backpack would tip forward. It had a 3 year warranty but now I have to pay almost as much as it cost to get it repaired or replaced. "There will be certain requirements, such as the original receipt, warranty tag along with a fee to cover (backpack, shopping trolley, tote, duffle: ***, rolling backpack & duffle: ***, Luggage: ***) the service charge. The product must be returned to California Pak with shipping pre-paid in order to be repaired or replaced. "
My back was giving me alot of problems after having to lug around messenger-type bags filled with office supplies that I need when I travel for work. I decided to shop around for a rolling backpack and found this. It's a great value for the money. It's a quality made backpack and rolls with ease. Even the length of the pull out handle is pretty good, I'm 5'11.5" and don't have to bend or slouch when it's in tow behind me. I would highly recommend this product.
