Mountain Classic School Backpack is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 19.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from My 2nd grader LOVES this bag! He was so excited when he found this black on black bag! Its the perfect size for him & his school needs. His last bag is the jr original backpack, which he outgrew. This bag should last him till middle school, maybe even high school. We had it monogrammed in the store. There are 3 main zippered pockets. The largest one is for folders or a laptop/tablet. The middle larger pocket is great for lunch, ski pants in the winter, more school work. The front 2 smaller pockets are for storing pens, hand sanitizer etc. Only 1 water bottle pocket, but happy to have it. Light weight and seems water proof/resistant. If my son is happy, so am I! Thanks LL B!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Thank you for returning to a classic... I absolutely love this bag! It is simplistic and streamlined so it is not so bulky, but still gives plenty of room. Looks like the backpack of yester-years. I chose the ginger color and have received many compliments. Thanks for bringing back the past! Definitely worth it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice but water bottle falls out So far, it is a very nice backpack for my 11 year old, but there it is nowhere to fit his water bottle. His former LL Bean b.p. had 2 side holders for water bottles and misc. This one (we just bought for school) has a mesh slot but I am not sure it is meant for a water bottle. Maybe a phone?? His water bottle falls out as he walks. At that price he should not have to rig it to stay in. If you don't have water to carry, then it is a pretty comfortable and durable b.p.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for middle school! This is the PERFECT backpack for middle schoolers! It’s not too small and not too big and bulky. It easily holds binder and textbooks. The separate pocket for her laptop is great. The straps are padded and stay on her shoulders. Bonus… the quality of stitching and zippers. So many other backpacks split or the zippers break within the first few uses. This backpack withstands the abuse of a teenager. I highly recommend investing in a quality backpack like this!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's great! I actually think this backpack is so great! I have been an avid buyer of L.L. Bean products since elementary school. I love the classic look to this backpack and hope L.L. Bean brings back some other retro bags as they had some really awesome ones back in the day. The quality of this bag is what I expect of L.L. Bean. It fits my 15" MacBook pro as well as all of my college books and notebooks. It is really everything I could want in a backpack.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not the quality I expected from LL Bean This back pack was smaller than expected. I got it for my 1st grade son and it seems small even though it says for ages “13 and up” . It is smaller than his kindergarten backpack that he used! There is only a cup holder on one side. The cup holder is not stretchy or elastic so it will not keep a large bottle in in let alone a regular size bottle (you can stick it in but it will definitely fall out!) . The bottle in the picture is hilarious ! That would def fall out upon moving the backpack off the shoulders. My sons water bottles kept falling out over and over so I had to buy him a much shorter water bottle to hopefully stay in. The positives are he likes the bright red and the shoulders straps are very nicely padded. My son is 6 I can’t imagine anyone much older than him being able to use this backpack for long. I honestly wish I had not paid so much money for this backpack.
