I did the investigating and narrowed my picks down to a few for my 8 year old son to choose from, and because he chose it himself, it made it even more fun as we opened the box when it arrived :).The bag is of great quality, and the rubber bottom is very practical, and kid friendly, ready for the abuse it's going to take. The color in the picture is accurate, it's a teal blue with gray. The handle is sturdy and the light up wheels are super cool, the faster you move the bag, the more it lights. The material looks very durable and the bag is set up in a practical way to get the most space used.However, I have only 2 issues with the bag (and hopefully Overstock will change the listing after reading this review):1. It's weighs about 5 or so lbs. The weight isn't included in the description on overstock and it would be super helpful if it was. My concern is that when his books are in there, he might have a hard time carrying it up the bus steps.2. The back straps don't have anything to conceal them and hang when you drag the bag. I'm concerned that they might get ruined or wet when transporting it and then make the option of using them out of the question.Overall, it's a wonderful backpack. We'll see how it holds up - the pricing was very fair as well. If there was a choice to give it 4 1/2 stars I would've.Thanks!The only issue
My three boys are extremly tough on school bags! I researched bags for several hours and finally found this one. This school bag lasted my son all year and never broke, tore or even has a scratch on it! The kids love it because the wheels light up! I am purchasing three more of these for next school year!

My son hasn't used his backpack yet because I purchased it for this 2009-2010 school year and school hasn't started yet...but I think that it beats the rest of the wheeled backpacks out there because the whole bottom is rubberized!! The usual wheeled backpacks start to scuff and rip midway through the school year.The handle glides up very smoothly and it has a GREAT color and my son thought it was the "coolest" that the wheels light up.
My daughter loving this backpack to use for school everyday. I got the pink color. The only drawback is the bottle holder pouch is small in width. Our regular bottles don't fit in. An extra sleeve inside the main pocket would really help to organize.
Ok so my son is brutal to rolling backpacks. It took him at least 8 months to ruin this one thanks to the rubber front bottom. Usually he ruins them in 3 months. He runs it up and down stairs and it rubs the fabric off the bottom front of most packs. The rubber on this one helped greatly. The lights on the wheels still worked at 8 months old. My son loved this pack but he ruined it dragging it around. If your kid is harsh on stuff, this isn't the pack for you. It's perfect size that my son could carry all his books. It's like a suitcase in size. Has great pocket organization inside. The handle still worked when I donated it to charity. Not sure they can use a holey backpack though. I've gone through 5 backpacks in 4 years with my boy. Now that he's in high school he doesn't want one that rolls so maybe this new one will last a lot longer since it's not on the ground so much. I'd definitely buy this cute one again if I have the need for a rolling backpack. The wheels lighting up was awesome! Kids always asked him where he got it from.
How accurate was the sizing? Very accurate sizing. Large and holds all the books my son needs.

I had seen many reviews concerning the quality and how parts fell off easily. So far I've had no problems with the wheels falling off. The lights on both wheels have been working well and my son loves the backpack. Its been through 1 and 1/2 school years. I don't think if my younger more "adventurous" son would have used it it would have lasted so long though.
I bought two of these for my twin girls. One was purple and the other was pink. They are so excited about showing them off. They look to be very durable and they love the light up wheels. All of their classmates loved them. The material looks to be great quality. The pull handles are very nice and sturdy. The protective rubber covering on parts of the bag is very good. I would purchase these again in a heartbeat.
