I ordered 2 backpacks. They are roomy and can hold a lot of textbooks and other school necessities. The materials are heavy duty and we have had no ripping problems. The packs have an extendable handle which is thick, unlike others we have tried in the past. It has held up to less than gentle children extending it and retracting it again. The webbed pockets on either side of the pack are very useful for holding bottled water and keeping the items inside the pack dry. WE love the bottom of the pack which has a rubber base which keeps the cloth from being scuffed when the pack is dragged in the wrong direction. It also helps keep the packs upright when standing. And the wheels light up as the pack is rolled along. Kids love this! So far this pack has impressed me with its durability as compared to many we have tried in the past. I usually have to get 3 packs a year to get through one school year. It looks like we may get a full year and then some out of this one. I would recommend it.

Good things: This backpack is sturdy and rolls nicely. I was VERY pleased with the amount of room inside; much bigger than any store-bought backpack we have owned. I was also surprised by the pink color; a deeper and much prettier pink than it appeared on the computer screen. I LOVE the rubber bottom. There is so much potential for the bottom to get ruined when the backpack is being dragged along, but not on this backpack! Downfalls: After just a few days the rubber casing on either side of the handle popped off, but the handle is still very comfortable to use; there are just 3 little black dots on either side of the handle where the casing once was. The light-up wheels are hard to see outside during the day, as the lights are very small, and they don't always work on both wheels, but it is still a nice added feature to the backpack.

I ordered this backpack because my son does not carry bags on his back and I needed something on wheels that he could pull instead for his first year of school. The bag is made of good quality materials. It is very practical with a big pocket, a small front pocket and the side mesh pockets. The wheels are indeed quiet and the bag rolls easily. I absolutely LOVE the handle: it locks in place but more importantly it has two settings to pull, one perfect for a young child and one perfect for an adult (I'm 5'9" and I don't have to bend to pull it!). I also love that the straps can be detached and stored, so they are not in the way when you roll the bag and don't get caught and damaged by the wheels. And finally it's a really original and fun looking backpack (which counts!!). The only downside was the price. The original price is fairly high to begin with, but for a quality bag it's not bad, but being in Canada, I had to pay taxes, shipping and handling and it ended up doubling the price of the bag!

My son loves this backpack. My only issue is that it is a little on the heavy side so getting it in and out of the car takes some effort.

in the picture, it looks as though the bottom is covered in rubber, to protect from rain etc., however, the rubber stops at the two knobs on the bottom, so it is only partially covered, allowing the nylon to get soaked if using in the rain. One of the wheels lights only work if your running fast with it, the other works all the time. The side mesh pockets for a water bottle etc., only hold a small 1/4 litre of water can, which doesn't work at all for us as ours is 1/2 litre.

Shopped around and read many reviews. This is excellent quality for price. Purchased for 7yr old boy. Colors are great and wheels light up. The bottom of bag and wheels are sturdy and look like they should last the school year but we haven't started using yet. There is a large fabric handle also on top that isn't visible from picture. Two addtl zippered compartments in addition to main one and two mesh side pockets for water bottle. Very happy with this purchase.

I bought this bag based on other reviews that spoke of the plastic reinforcements around the bottom and the cool lighted wheels. One of the wheels did not work on the first day of use while being rolled. We could get it to light up by hand rolling it, but it did not work when he was using it to carry his books. Also the plastic that covers the bottom - which is a GREAT idea - does NOT cover the bottom between the wheels where damage is most likely to and DID occur on day one. I love the bag though and have ordered the 17inch (which looks - hopefully - to be improved and covered on whole base) with the repair/replacement guarantee from Overstock. Also beware of the side mesh pockets for water bottle usage. They are too small. There is a nice zip pocket on the very front though that works for this purpose.
The time quickly arrives when your little baby is ready for a backpack. Shopping for a kid's backpack can be quite an adventure since you must balance practical needs with the cool factor your child -- and all of her friends -- demand. You'll want to consider a few different things depending on whether your kid's backpack will be used as a book bag for school or as a pack for overnight trips. But any way you and your child plan to use the backpack, you'll want to choose a stylish bag that will be able to stand up to the wear kids can inflict.
Travel backpacks offer a number of benefits for all types of travelers and may be an attractive alternative to larger tote bags, duffel bags and miniature suitcases. Whether you're traveling with a backpack over a long distance or traveling by plane with a small backpack as a carry-on, use a travel backpack designed with extra compartments and tight-fitting, portable style to ensure a comfortable travel experience. Easy to stow and store: The design of a travel backpack makes it easy to store it in overhead bins in a bus, train or airplane. The soft sides of a backpack let it conform to tight storage spaces. Many travel backpacks have compression straps that let you cinch the packs contents down to take up less space. Comfort: Travel backpacks put less strain on your body than most other kinds of luggage because their weight doesn't pull on one side of your body. Travel backpacks are designed to evenly distribute their load on your shoulders and hips, making them easy to carry for several hours. Thick straps with lots of padding make it even more comfortable. Keeps travelers organized: Many travel backpacks are designed with several compartments to store smaller items, such as water bottles, a cell phone, MP3 player, PDA, passport and subway tokens. This makes it easier to stay organized while traveling, ensuring that all your basic items and accessories are within easy reach. Easy to move around: Probably the biggest benefit of using a travel backpack is the ease of movement it provides. You don't have to worry about dragging a rolling suitcase up a flight of stairs. A travel backpack is also easier to maneuver through a crowd of people than most other types of luggage. Protects items from the elements: Many travel backpacks are made with water-resistant and waterproof fabrics that protect your valuables no matter what the weather forecast may look like. Travel backpacks made with polywick fabric, ballistic nylon and other weatherproofing materials are especially beneficial for travelers who will be outdoors for most of their trip.
