          Love this product, my books for college were getting way too heavy to carry in a normal book bag.

              This was purchased for my 4th grade son so he doesnt have to carry his other Jansport back pack on his back. This is a fast growing trend so students can carry their stuff around at school. I see many different vendor types of this new concept for students and some seem way to big or like the first one I bought him ( different vendor) was just to small for 60 bucks. This one by Jansport has the best wheels and handle and bottom protection. He can fit his 3 inch binder/couple text books/2 soft lunch boxes ( one is for after school before football meal)a U10 size football and his hooded sweatshirt with room to spare. The drink holder on side fits a gatorade bottle very well and tight. The only thing I would like to see in the future is maybe a ice cold storage soft compartment for keeping his perisable colder longer verses his soft lunch box. Its not necessary. The only reason why I suggested it is because I have absolutly nothing to complain about with this product. I looked at all the other top vendors and the 100 dollars I spent on this is sure to give years of service. Good job JanSport on keeping with quality and fair price for a rolling back pack that my son absolutly loves.

                My middle school child loved this backpack so much that I am back to purchase one for her brother. It is a great rolling backpack. Glides really easy. Only complaint is that I wish it had 2 side pockets for water bottles. The 1 pocket is has is nice and large.

                    I bought this for my little student 2 years ago, and the only reason we are buying a new one now is for a new style! It has held up the abuse of 3rd and 4th grade, hanging outside in the sun during school, up and down cement steps, and a boatload of homework. The size is big, and an elementary student isn't carrying a laptop, but the sleeve came in handy to keep her other things safe. She loved this backpack, and I'd highly recommend it to everyone looking for a backpack on wheels. The extra space comes in handy: lunch bag, homework folder, books, binder, extra clothes, etc. Love the drink holder on the outside as well. She used and abused it for 2 years with absolutely no problems!

                      We liked the product a lot but the first time my daughter used it, she left the straps out while rolling it and they got mangled. Then, after a month, the pull handle broke off rendering it useless. Could be good for indoor use but guess it couldn't handle the NYC winter.

                          I use my backpack for travel, for shopping, and basically to carry things around. This is an awesome backpack.
