We bought 2 of these J World bags 1 year ago for our girls to use in elementary school (2nd grade). We are fortunate to be able to walk to school (under 1 mile) but this means the bags have seen a lot of use. Sidewalk, streets, yards, over curbs, sticks and rocks - every day. All I can say is we've been very happy! These bags are 100 times better than anything from the typical catalog companies (particularly the ***...ones). Our neighbors all had those other bags, and within a few weeks the bottoms by the wheels were completely torn up and falling apart. Duct-tape city! The hard plastic bottom on these J-World bags is fantastic. And the wheels are super smooth and have never had an issue. All-in-all, this is a well-built bag.
As much as we have loved these, they could still be improved. The water bottle pockets on the sides are too shallow for larger bottles, causing them to topple out if you're not careful. It's not something that happened everyday, but it does happen. Also, the plastic bottom is primarily on the front side (as seen in the pictures). On the back side by the wheels, the main fabric wraps down partway under the bag. It still has plastic underneath the fabric, but the fabric itself does get torn up a bit due to scrapes from curbs, etc. Nothing like the cheap bags, but still, they should just make the entire bottom plastic and skip the fabric there.
Finally, be aware that these are big bags - compared to some of the 'kids' bags other students have, ours look over-sized and we've gotten a few comments like "geesh, what are you carrying in the that thing...it's only 2nd grade". But the size has never been an issue for our kids, and comes in handy during the winter when they need a place to stash gloves, scarves, sweaters, etc.
How is the quality of the product? very good
Was the product free of any manufacturer defects? yes
This pack has really met my needs ! The size is adequate for my laptop, multiple books and papers. Multiple pockets to stay organized. The rubber pad at the base helps protect the pack from scuffing while in use. Be sure to tuck away the straps as they can hang and drag in the wheels causing tears - but they tuck easily into the side mesh drink holders.
I hesitated in buying a rolling pack and now wondering why I waited so long ! The weight off my shoulders is literally gone !!
How accurate was the sizing? Very goid
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Stitching is well done - rubber pad at bottom helps with scuffing from use; wheels good size - pack pulls easily
Was the product free of any manufacturer defects? Yes
I bought this backpack because I injured my neck and can't carry one on my shoulders. I'm an adult college student and the texts are heavy. I found the actual space for books to be really inadequate. The side mesh pockets for water bottles are too short to actually hold the water bottles in them. The bottles actually bounce out of them as you wheel the backpack. The handle is of poor quality and actually broke after only two weeks of use.
i bought this backpack to put my laptop which is 17 inches and hard to find a case for it. also for my camera and video camera. i am planning to use it for my carry on when i go on my 10th annual girls trip next week.
This is a great backpack for the price and the protector at the front bottom is the best part, since this area is the first to go on a rolling backpack. It has really nice roomy compartments. The only problem is that the metal handlebar is not made sturdy enough and I hope it won't break. Only time will tell. This is my sons second J World backpack and the handlebar is what broke last time, but for the price, I think it's still worth it. I hope it will last longer this time! It can still be worn as a regular backpack just in case.
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Good quality for the price.
The first day the zipper pull broke- right out of the box. Another zipper pull broke the next day. Have to return it :(
The quality seemed like it was all right beside that but zippers that don't work on a backpack is a no go!!
Thrilled (!!!) I came across this rolling backpack, after much research. My tween daughter was experiencing back pain from the heavy load of books inside a traditional backpack. This backpack is very rugged, rolls easily, has a retractable handle, the fabric is easy to clean and in the right color (purple). The zippers work well and the hard plastic bottom protects it from damage. Perfect buy. Highly recommend. In fact, several kids in her school have now ordered the exact backpack in different fabric.
How accurate was the sizing? Perfect
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Rugged, sturdy, takes a lot of wear and tear - and very attractive
