I ordered this cute rolling backpack on the 25th of September, we received it around the 30th. Today is the 12th of October, and the backpack is falling apart!
I bought this cute but tough looking bag for my 6th grader. Yes, it is heavy , when packed full of books- that's why I bought a ROLLING BAG! However, this one is a really bad design! To make it sturdier, they put a hard plastic or metal plate under the handle, which unfortunately is cutting into the material every time she picks up the bag by the handle, and it is already breaking on the top.
I don't know if ALL the CalPacks have this design fault , or only this one , but I would definitely not recommend this one!
However, if you just gonna use it to roll around and NO PICKING IT UP BY THE HANDLE, no problem; the back is padded, the wheels are tough, the pulling handle is great, it has several pockets---- would be a fantastic bag, if the material was stronger and the top plate was big enough for the WHOLE top.
Don't say I didn't warn you!
I purchased this rolling backpack for my 8 year old son and within 2 months the bottom corners were torn. Within 3 months the inside linings tore off completely. The only positive is that the handle remained intact. Would not recommend for an active child.

How is the quality of the product? not good

Okay backpack if it stays out of the sun. My little boy has now used this backpack for the entire kindergarten school year with a month left to go. Here in SoCal the children park their backpacks outside the classrooms. The sun has faded this backpack so badly it doesn't even look orange anymore. Also, the sun has done such a number on it that it is desintegrating. It is literally falling apart. Other than that, the wheels, handle zippers etc. are all good. The material is just not sun/fade proof.
I bought this backpack for my elementary age kids. The backpack colors are nice (I bought the red, orange, and blue). Within a month of use the back pack already ripped on the part close to the handle. The inside packet also ripped from the top part. I am guessing that the backpack ripped because it can not handle the weight of the contents when ever you lift them insted of using the rollers. The bottom part of the back pack also separated from the base. It was only 3 months since my kids have used the back pack and I now have to replace them. I have bought other CalPak backpacks before and they lasted for one school year. I thought that this one will last too because they are more expensive than the previous ones I bought. I was very very disappointed.
I waited to review this item because there's no way to really know until it is truly used. My child loves the way it looks and especially not having to shoulder all the weight.
Nice, bright colors, lots of compartments. Except the side fabric is already ripping as well as the netting on the side pocket and it is only mid-October. I have to mention that my son doesn't give his things a lot of wear... and has never trashed a backpack.
I will try to patch it for it to stop the side rip to continue but we may have get something else (or another one) by mid-year.
Purchased this for my 8 yr old son for school. He's notoriously rough
on backpacks and book bags. We picked up two lesser quality (more
expensive) bags that he destroyed one month into the school year.
This bag arrived and we immediately noticed the sturdier construction
and the thicker fabric. We love it and my son loves it. I couldn't be happier
with this buy. Item arrived sooner than expected via ups.
We purchased this for my 3rd grade daughter. The zipper broke almost immediately. Soon after, the handle would not release without having to wiggle it. We were thoroughly disappointed with this product and would not recommend anyone spending their money on this purchase.
I have the same complaint as most other reviewers. I purchased the backpack for my son who just started fourth grade. In previous years, I had purchased the L. L. Bean rolling pack and it usually lasted for the entire school year. The L. L. Bean backpacks are expensive however, so I decided to try this more affordable model this year. I guess you do get what you pay for. I saved $30 by purchasing the CalPak, but now I need to invest in a new backpack so, ultimately, it will cost me more money in the end.
I would like to point out that my son doesn't carry any books back and forth (they all stay at school) and the only things that go in are his lunchbox and the book he brings for silent reading. We used to put a water bottle in the side pockets, but those tore up first a couple of weeks ago.
Very disappointed in this product. Too bad because the backpack looks very attractive and my son loved it.
According to the Q&A below about the tag, does it mean this backpack contains materials that caused cancer, regardless if there is a tag or not?doublemilk on Mar 12, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
This product has almost untraceable amounts of lead. We are currently labeling our product shipped to California with a Proposition 65 label because California has one of the strictest rules about informing customers of any chemicals that might be present on the products. Thank you for your interest.overstockcustomercare1 on Mar 15, 2013

CalPak Grand Stand bag comes with a tag with a clear warning that the bag contains materials known to cause cancer - does this bag have the same type of tag?hioverstock on Sep 26, 2012Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
I'm not sure if this item has that tag. It is only for certain states like California because of their laws, they have to disclose it.overstockcustomercare1 on Sep 27, 2012
