The straps were torn after a month of using it. The bag itself now has a hole after less than three months. The bag has no support structure to it so if it is not completely full, and you need to pack it in a way the fabric does not slouch, the material will fold and bend on itself. Then when the kids pull on the bag they drag the slouchy fabric around and burn holes into ithe bag and the friction tear out the straps if they drag on the floor. This is definitely not for young school children, who might not need such a big bag or who are not very careful in how they pack things. Don't waste your money. Buy a more expensive but better bag for your kids..
