This pack is just what I needed for school (I'm an "older" student). I carry a bunch of heavy textbooks, and it just feels secure and solid. Rolls around easily. The slide handle goes "tall" enough for me (I'm 5'8) There are side-mesh pockets for water bottle, head phones, etc. Inside the front section there are pen slots and a pocket, I like that the bottom is solid and there is room enough that my texts don't get curled corners. The cloth handle to lift it, feels secure (I think I carry about 30 lbs).
This pack is perfect for me and so is the price! Plus the shipping was only $2.99. I like that.
Oh yes, and it does have the the thick padded straps if you want to carry it on your back.
I highly recommend this "Pack on Wheels".
I bought this for my 10 year old daughter to use for school. She's very happy with it. It has 2 large zippered compartments with 2 mesh pockets on the side. It also has a smaller open compartment in the front. On the back are two straps for carrying as well as a velcro'd pocket. The backpack is well made and worth the price. I was looking at wheeled backpacks that were *** and up. I just didn't want to spend that much so this one fit the bill perfectly.
I bought 2 of these backpacks for my daughters to use on a family trip to Europe (5 cities). These backpacks were light even packed with 5 days worth of clothes, easy to convert to backpack mode when they had to be carried (up and down steps as well as onto the subways), and withstood rigorous rolling over all types of street terrains. Great sturdy wheeled backpacks! I'm still giving it 5 stars even though it had an occasional tipping problem when being pulled in a rush.
I bought two wheeled backpacks and this one is by far the most durable and easy to use. It's very strong and good quality. I also purchased item#11271715 the olympia 19-inch rolling backpack at the same time, and it was so flimsy and made very poorly. I needed to return it due to the backpack splitting at the seams(on the bottom). I only had one small book and a lunch box in it. I am glad it was under warranty! I then ordered this PacificGear and I LOVE IT!!!!What a BIG DIFFERENCE!!!!
This is a very good rolling backpack. I just used it on a trip to Orlando and it fits easily in the overhead bin without a lot of pushing and shoving. It's also easy to pick up and sling over a shoulder while you handle your other bags. Good construction, good design.
My daughter is a bit rough on book bags and this one managed to last half a year. With the history of my daughter's book bags, that's a pretty impressive record. Its nicely and well made, the wheels are still in proper working condition, the handle and support system is still working properly. The zipper and the interior compartments have begun to tear/ not work as of 7 months after it arrived and upon obvious abuse.
Purchased as a gift for my handicapped sister for Christmas. She loves it. Zippers seemed quality built and the wheels strong too. Its large enough for overnight. The color choices were pretty good too...we went for the purple.
It's a decent backpack but I don't think it will last more than one school year. My daughter (going into 6th) thinks it isn't large enough, but I think it will work. Not quite sure what the loops in the front are for. Maybe just decoration??
This backpack was ordered for my daughter in 5th grade, she has been using it for 2 weeks and it is broken and tearing on the inside. I am very disappointed with this product. I thought I found a good deal for the price but I was wrong, will have to keep on looking.

This backpack is labeled as a laptop rolling backpack. What size of laptop would it be able to fit and does it come with a built in sleeve or do I need to provide my own for it?ameya26 on Aug 21, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Thank you for shopping with us ameya26. We are sorry for the confusion but it is primarily a backpack. It does not come with a sleeve. Packing capacity: 17 inches high x 13 inches wide x 7.5 inches deep. Check the dimensions of your computer, the ones I checked the 15 inch would fit but the one 17 inch on our site would be two large. I hope this helps.

Do you have the contact info for the manufacturer? A wheel fell off on my last PacificGear wheeled backpack before the end of the warranty, but I cannot locate them to file for a replacement. Before I buy another one, I'd like to know that I can locate them.smcutler on Nov 26, 2012Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
