I researched backpacks for awhile and most of them are over $50. I'm on a student budget so I wanted someting that was moderately priced but still had the features I wanted. My walk to school is 40 minutes going through cracked side walks, gravel, dirt, etc. and so far the rolling backpack has worked like a dream. It's not completely rainproof but it does wicks off most of the moisture.I would definitely recommend this backpack if you have a lot of books to carry and you don't want to end up hunched back at graduation. I have tried out the straps which don't have a lot of padding but good enough since I used the subway and walked through the airport w/ books and some clothes in the backpack. It's lacking padding for laptops so if you are going to put your laptop in it be sure to have it in a sleeve.
I bought this for a gift. My college bound daughter loved it. It had a lot of room, the handle seemed sturdy and the feature on the base that stops it from falling forward when stopped is a plus. Thumbs up so far.
Maybe it's just me, but I kind of hoped that at this price, the handle on this wouldn't break off less than a year after we bought. The pack itself is well made, and my daughter is now testing the integrity of the handle as she lugs it to school by hand while we wait for a replacement.
We bought the green for our newborn grandson because his parents love to go go go on the weekends. This is perfect to hold all of his little boy needs while the diaper bag can just those necessities!. Got the idea from our one year old granddaughter that has one and her active parents use it all the time. I'm sure it's great for big people, too. I looked at a lot of these traveling backpacks and chose this one with no regrets.
I waited a whole school year before I could write an honest review on this backpack. I spent a great deal of time in Summer 2012 researching wheeled backpacks and determining which one would be a good fit for my 5th grade son without breaking the bank.
I am happy to say that this backpack survived the entire school year, September – June, and is fully intact! We had NO issues with the wheels, zippers, the extended metal handle, or the fabric handle on the top. Overall, the fabric held up extremely well with the exception at the bottom of the backpack.
The bottom of the backpack is constructed of plastic which makes it very durable; however, it is covered with fabric. The fabric did wear away on the bottom of the backpack…the section in between the wheels...right at the point where it would hit the curb or sidewalk. I would have rated the backpack an “excellent” instead of “good” if there was a protective plastic piece put in this area.
The backpack had large, organized zippered sections and ample room inside. It could easily be fully loaded with a binder, large books, and other school supplies fit for a 5th grader. It would, however, topple over on occasion but not enough to make it bothersome.
There is normal wear on the wheels and if we put a little duct tape over the worn fabric on the bottom, I think that this backpack could easily go another school year. This backpack was a good value for the price and I would recommend it.
