I bought this bag for my daughter when she started elementary school. She is going into 4th Grade this year, and she has no desire or need for another backpack! LLBean makes backpacks that last and last. She is by no means gentle with her bag. She rides the bus, throws it on the floor...is a kid with it. The bag holds up, resists stains and washes well, too. Love it!
I would describe myself as: cost-conscious mom of three
