Rated 2 out of 5 by Mom Returning it
My 1st complaint is that Dick's has very few backpacks to choose from in the store, other than right before the school year starts. I ordered this backpack from the store and was told I would receive it within 5-7 days. It wasn't even shipped until a week after I ordered it! It seems smaller than what the dimensions say on line. My teenage son needs a big backpack and this one seemed comparable to his Under Armour pack (which ripped after using for 6 months-never buy that again!). But size isn't the only issue. There are straps on the sides, not sure why, and they interfere with getting things in and out of the pack. They go across the zippers. Bad design. Guess I will go to a big box discount store to look for a backpack.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Tom Great for school!
My 7-year-old uses this for school. It's roomy enough for his books, lunch box, and stuffing his hooodie when the day warms up. And it looks great too!

Rated 3 out of 5 by truthfirst Small. Very small.
I was deceived by the pretty picture, I guess. I bought this online for my son and returned it the day it came. I thought it was roomy. He needs more space for his many books and folders and binder ... not a chance. This is smaller than the one he had. A nice thought, though. High Sierra is a great brand and we got one in a larger size on clearance at [@] for [$] -- originally it was [$]. You won't get a good sized one for less than $40-something, so the [$] price should have been a tip off.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Deb, the mom :) Best backpack for weekend camping!
My family LOVES this backpack! We started out ordering it for one daughter, and based on the experience she has had packing EVERYTHING she needs for her weekend camping trips, being able to utilize all the compartments for individual items, such as one for underwear and socks, one for toothbrushes and pajamas, and one for clothes, with one small front compartment left over for miscellaneous stuff. Even our small 7 year old carries hers, fully packed, with no problems. Even a small stuffed animal fits in! :-) Love it and would order it again and again!
