L.L.Bean Original Book Pack®, Print is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 157.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Be careful when you personalize I purchased this backpack for my son. The backpack itself is of good quality, and what you would expect from LL Bean. The personalization though, is absolutely terrible! I went with the recommended thread color of black in the blue camo...and his name is embroidered on the same color of the backpack so you cannot see anything but the last few letters. Why recommend a thread color if someone isn’t going to take a look at the actual backpack when doing the embroidering?! Not to mention the embroidery is way too small so it looks very cheaply done. Thanks for sending me a ruined backpack

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Almost Perfect My daughter had a Junior backpack for both years of preschool and I was incredibly impressed with the quality ... the bag is still in amazing shape after 2 years of use. Because of this, we stuck with LL Bean and chose this backpack for Kindergarten. The colors are beautiful and vibrant which my daughter loves. It is almost perfect ... it just needs a buckle chest strap !!! Her lunch bag makes the bag heavier and it slips off her shoulders while walking to school. LL Bean please consider adding this feature :-)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Gigantic My daughter has had the Junior sized backpack for the past 3 years (K-2) and it's been great overall, though the zippers are now difficult to open and close, which seems like a short lifespan for an L.L. Bean product. Anyway, she's 8 1/2 and going into 3rd grade so I bought her a new one and chose the next size up for her to grow into. It's HUGE! Even with the straps tightened all the way it's ridiculous and won't stay on her body. I ended up ordering her another Junior sized one to use this year.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing! As a teacher, I see many backpacks not survive the school year. I bought this for my son when he was in Kindergarten and he is still using it and now he is entering 4th grade! We will upgrade next school year for Middle School but I plan on him getting one last year out of it. So we already got 4 years use of it and the matching lunch box, and we are planning on 1 more school year so 5 years- Definitely worth it! I am hoping for more patterns so I can order for my youngest as he enters Kindergarten in 2 months! Shark in the smaller one would be great...if not will be getting the solid red one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great quality! I had a friend tell me to get an L.L Bean backpack for my son who started kindergarten this year, so I did and I was not disappointed! The quality is great, usually the zippers on kids bags are awful but this one is not! I was worried it would be too big for my 5 years old but it fits him perfectly and he really likes it. I also had his name embroidered on the front. I only wish the font was a little larger and I would have picked a better color because it blends in fairly well and cannot notice it unless really looking. But overall I am satisfied!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Junk zipper Disappointed with the quality!!! The personalization looks cheaply made and it’s miniature in size. Please don’t tell me it’s because of the number of letters in her name, because her sister has a long name too and hers from 3 years ago is much bigger and still looks brand new. Now to the zipper that a constant struggle, always getting caught and I thought my child was being careless when one faithful day it happened to me. She ended up going to school with her backpack half opened because I couldn’t get it out, it was that jammed. The zipper finally have its last breath about 3 months ago, her book pack wasn’t even a year old. Now I’m hoping the remaining zipper won’t die on us before school is over. Have I been the lucky one to receive a book pack with a faulty zipper or has the quality gone down hill?! Either way, I now will have to replace her backpack much sooner than expected but I’ll be sure look else where.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from New Backpack My granddaughter had a red one for preK - 1st grade, and is starting second grade with her new print backpack, she's very pleased. All three of my grandkids have LL Bean backpacks, they shop online with me and pick out their own designs and monograms. They all love them, what more can I say? Kid approved!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Didn’t hold up My 7 yr old (2nd grade) used this book bag for 6 weeks & the zipper broke. He’s not one to be too rough on his belongings, either. I bought this bag with the expectation that it would hold up for SEVERAL school years, not just a few weeks. Disappointed.
