My daughter used this bag for a whole year now. We couldn't wait to replace it with another wheeled bag. At first, the bag would fall forward when books were put inside. Now, it barely can stand up on its own even when empty (leans forward a lot). The netting for the bottle holder started to rip immediately. The bottom edges of the bag started to rip/tear as well. The only thing we liked was the front pockets and the colors are great, too.
