The L.L.Bean Book Pack has been a favorite of mine since elementary school. Forty Dollars may sound like a lot for a bookbag, but considering that it lasted me 5 and a half years without wearing out makes it worth the money. My backpack lasted me from 1st grade to halfway through 7th grade. When I got a new one, my old one had broken a zipper, and they replaced it for free. These bookbags are great for any kid K-12 who needs a good book pack with durability. They are also very stylish, they can come in just about every color plus carnation plaid and black plaid. The shoulder straps on the book back are erganomically made and it also has a belt that you can latch around your waist for easier carrying and back support. The Book Pack has two main pockets, the back one bigger than the other. Then, it has a front pocket, for carrying pencils, calculators, and things of that nature. Also in the pocket there is a slot at the top used for pulling headphones through, so you can listen to music. Then on the front of that pocket, there is one more smaller pocket for pencils and what not. This is an amazing and simple Book pack that will not dissapoint.
