    • Handle broke

      The handle does not go all the way down. he used it for 1 month of school and the handle will no longer retract all the way down. He didn't break it as it still functions but the mechanism is just name made well.

    • As expected

      After reading up numerous reviews on rolling backpacks, I have decided on this one and it was a great choice. I too am in nursing school and do not want to haul all those books around and be crippled up by the time I graduate. I've only been using a short time but am impressed with the size and quality.

    • Crappy Customer Service= Waste of money

      The Backpack was great WHILE IT LASTED. Backpack does fall over as noted in other reviews. Most significantly, the handle broke off inside of four months after we got it, and my attempts to contact customer service went unanswered. WAY too much money to spend on a backpack that lasts less than four months with a guarantee that is not really a guarantee. I am going back to LL Bean or Lands End and their unbeatable customer service.

    • Love my rolling backpack

      I checked out so many other backpacks and was about to buy the Nike rolling backpack but was disappointed in the quality of the material. I decided to first try the Calpak rolling backpack. I'm so glad I did. The material is way better quality and the handle is also very sturdy for the price. Great deal.

    • Yes, it falls over

      It is actually two backpacks zipped together. A big backpack on wheels with a handle, with straps that zip up in the back; and a second smaller backpack that attaches to the big pack via a zipper. The big backpack cannot be used as both a backpack and a wheeled bag at the same time, because the straps for the backpack must be zipped up inside in order to prevent the strap cover from dragging the ground when used as a wheeled bag. So you can't wheel it, then quickly grab the straps and throw it over your shoulder. You are committed to using one way or the other. Secondly, even when the big backpack is full, when you fill the front backpack, if you try to let it stand up as a piece of wheeled luggage, it will fall forward and the front backpack lays on the ground. For it not to fall over, you'd have to keep the big backpack full of books and rocks and the front backpack filled with tissue paper. I bought this and after opening the box and playing with it for about five minutes, I wrapped it back up and put it back in the box to return.

    • Rolling Backpack

      I ordered this for my daughter who is in nursing school and carrying heavy textbooks. We were a little leery of ordering without actually being able to physically look and feel the backpack. We are very pleased. The material is durable and there are multiple zippered areas. Although it has wheels, it also has shoulder straps which can be tucked away. The handle staps are wonderful, thick and well padded. She is very pleased with her choice.

    • Awesome Sturdy Bag

      I was not wrong in choosing this product for my day to day school activities. From home to school, school to library, and back home, this rolling backpack answers everything that I need to carry three (3) nursing books, a 15 inch laptop, chargers, and other stuff pertinent to my activities. I just hope the wheels doesn't give up until next Spring 2013 when I finish my degree plan.

    • Rollling Backpack for Nursing School

      I researched all different types of rolling backpacks because I am in Nursing School and have a huge load of books to haul. I compared features and prices and found this to be one of the best deals. When I got the backpack I was extremely happy with my purchase. I have been using it for 3 weeks now and have no complaints. I reallly like the feature of being able to take off the front part of the backpack to use it as a "normal" backpack. I have nothing bad to say about this backpack and would highly recommend it!

    • CalPak Diplomat 21 inch

      This is a great rolling backpack. I had never actually used one before, but I started nursing school recently and realized I wanted one rather than carry all my books on my back. The only problem was I have so many books to carry in the bag that I was not able to fit my laptop in it. That would probably not be a problem for someone who does not have to carry more than 5 books at one time. I would definitely recommend this to anyone.

    • How long is the warranty on this backpack?

      • Hello klweathers, there is not a warranty that comes with this CalPak Diplomat 21-inch Rolling Backpack. You can purchase an extended warranty when you purchase this item. We have a 30 day return policy from the delivery date if you have any issues we stand behind all our products. Thank you for shopping with us.

    • thank you for answering but I really wanted to know if the big backpack alone will tip over with books in it. Ive purchase pottery barn rolling backpacks for my kids and they complain that it will not stand up it always tips over and falls even with a couple books in it. I doubt they will attach the small bag with it for school but it looks cool!

      • I am in nursing school and carry many large books. The handle is very sturdy and I don't have issues with it tipping or anything.

      • This "backpack" is pretty big to be called a backpack. Its very tall and wide. I would recommend this to kids. However, to answer your question, no it doesn't tip over, it resembles luggage and just an over all roller backpack for people with heavy text books and long walks.
