got the kids each one to take on the airplane enroute to Disney, very impressed with the quality of these, the kids love the wheels. Seems to have alot of room and very well made. Great as a carryon but would be equally nice as a regular school bag. very nice colors, they love them!! Cannot beat the price, either!!!
Roomy and cute...wheels completely fell off within 12 weeks of moderate use...had bought the replacement coverage, but was not easy to work with. They are supposed to be sending me a pick up, but still haven't gotten it....Never offered a replacement, just a refund. I needed to go to another source in the meantime to order a rolling backpack because my daughter has an injured back. Not worth the time and money.....
The backpack has nice quality and looks, however, the handle is very short and best suited for preschool or maybe kindergarten children. The pack also falls backward when trying to unzip it or load material into it, which can create a challenge for children.
I bought this roller backpack for my son. He only uses it for 1 week and one of the wheels fell off. I tried to put it back on but it won't stay. What a waste of money. The quality is really poor. I was fooled by the look. Don't buy it.
I bought this for my 9 year old daughter whose traditional backpack was too heavy after loading it up with books. She is pleased with the size and quality; she can still put the handle down in order to carry it up and downstairs but wheels it otherwise. I am happy because she isn't lugging a heavy pack on her back. Will purchase another for my son for next year. Overstock shipped quickly. Overall, it was a great deal!
The CalPak Grand Stand 17-inch Rolling Backpack is excellent. I purchased the Pink Plaid for my daughter and she loves it!!! This backpack is sturdy and stands upright with no tilting!!! I made this purchase based on other reviews and I am glad I took the time to read the reviews..
My second grader son's bag was getting heavy, so I decided to give him a pull-on bag. It is great. He loves it, and I don't have to worry that he is carrying too much on his shoulder any more. The bag arrived on time with a good packing.
I bought this wheeled back pack for my 5th grader son. It was working fine at the beginning, but soon the screw connecting the metal bar to the handle started to get loose. Well,,, yesterday, he came back home, with its handle broken. We bought this at the beginning of November last year, and now it is early February. It did not last even for three months. I will contact a manufacturer to see if they can replace it, but I am very disappointed by its quality.
Bought the backpack for my 8 year old son who hauls it everyday to school and after school activities. It is holding up well and he thinks the backpack is "cool". He has the ability to roll it or carry it on his back...no complaints of wheels digging into his back or of it being uncomfortable. The main compartment is big enough to hold all his books and folders. The smaller section fits all his little toys and the "treasures" he finds on his travels to school. The backpack stands by itself even when filled...a nice feature especially when you are seaching through it for papers and books. The positive reviews I read prior to purchasing the backpack are holding true and I would recommend this item to others.
I gave these as Christmas gifts to my 2 grandchildren for an upcoming trip. They loved them and begged to use them for rolling school bags because they looked so good - blue/black for boy, pink plaid with blue trim for my redheded girl. That doesn't mean they're really small - they're just right for 9 & 12 yr old to carry "necessaries" on a long plane ride and manage themselves or as a school bag. These were a bigger "hit" at Christmas than the toys!!!
I am a college student and this backpack is great. I have had it for about three months and its still in great shape. It is perfect for carrying heavy textbooks and is very roomy for whatever you may need to carry. I have loaded it with a 3 inch binder a couple text books and a lap top. Wish it had more than two pockets but it is and exellent bag overall.
I recently purchased two or your rolling CalPak Backpacks and they are some ot the sturdiest that I have ever seen. My grand daughters took them on thier trip to Disney and use them every day for school and believe me, they get used and abused, but they still look brand new and show no signs of wear and tear. I am very pleased with my purchase and so are they. There were many color and design choices to pick from which also made it nice.
I was surprised by how sturdy this rolling backpack is. I love the hide-away straps. They are easy to put away and comfortable to use, when desired. What I enjoy most about this backpack is that IT NEVER TIPS OVER!!! No matter how heavy or unbalanced the contents are, it always remains standing. Plus, the wheels actually ARE very quiet! Yaay! It is roomy and the handles are comfortable and long enough to use without leaning over. I love this rolling backpack!
