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!
Nice uncluttered look and all-purpose black color. Large main compartment and sturdy bottom good for our use, which is local food shopping. Fits into my gym locker. Stands upright whether empty or full. Double-pole handle makes maneuvering easy. A negative is that it takes some extra effort and attention to zip around the two upper corners. A very minor negative is that when pushing forward instead of pulling, the handle occasionally gives in—i.e., as though you were closing the handle. Not a biggie, and I am pleased with this product, which had an exceptional price and was delivered promptly.
I ordered this backpack for my son last week and I just received it today. I'm really upset about this purchase. The quality of this backpack is USED AND WORNED OUT. It even had milk stains on the inside.How can you put something on sale and claiming that it''s new, when it' not!?!?THAT'S DECIEVING YOUR CUSTOMERS!! If you're going to sell an used item, you should put it on your website. I'm EXTREMELY UPSET WITH PURCHASE AND I HOPE OTHER CUSTOMERS WILL NOT TRUST THIS WEBSITE. I WILL NOT PURCHASE ANYTHING FROM OVERSTOCK EVER AGAIN!
I purchased this for my 5th grader. He wanted Bookbag with wheels on it because last year he complained of having too many books and hating to carry the heavy Bookbag. Based on prior reviews, this item was rated pretty well. However, I don't agree. The bookbag alone is too heavy. I'd use this item as a travel bag but not for daily use and for a 10yr old. I agree with him...way too heavy with the wheels. I'll be using this as a travel bag and purchasing another bookbag. :(
I hesitated buying this for my fourth grade son last year based on some not holding up. However, as a teacher and someone with back and neck problems, I saw my students and own child going down a bad path of ruining their posture. This rolling bag lasted until the last two days of school! And, that involved a very active boy rolling it up and down a flight of stairs every day. Hoping this year's bag lasts just as long!
Hello goffoverstock, the 18 inches height includes the wheels, but not the handle. When the handle is fully extended, the height is 40 inches. Thank you for shopping with us.overstockcustomercare1 on Aug 26, 2014
