LL Bean Blue Back Pack

L.L. Bean Backpack

The undisputed champ of kids' backpacks is made by L.L. Bean. Their products are rugged and durable, and come with a lifetime guarantee. That means that if the backpack ever breaks, they'll replace it at no charge. The bags also include safety features like a reflective strip, and fun touches like monograms. They also carry backpacks with wheels in case your child's books become too heavy to carry, and the variety of colors and designs means your child is bound to find one he loves.
