Are you tired like I am of buying your child a new backpack every school year? My son's back packs last barely a school year and then it has to be thrown out. Whether is it the zipper is broke or there are holes on the bottom or the seams on coming apart, they just don't seem to last long.
Well I believe I found a solution. I brought my son a Land's End classmate back pack last year and after inspecting it, he will be able to use it again this year. It has held up for at least one school year.
I purchased the Land's End back pack because of the extra tough bottom. I don't know what my child does to his back packs but the bottoms always develop holes in them! I also like the padded shoulder straps on the back pack.
There is also an organizer pockets on the inside, they can hold things like pencils, pens, notes, etc without having them just thrown inside the back pack loose.
I don't know if it will hold up another school year, but if any back pack can I would bet Land's End can! I was surprised it held up so well last year.
If your child is rough on their back packs, try Land's End classmate. You might just be surprised how well they hold up to a child's daily abuse!
