I got got this as a back up just in case I didn't like the new messenger bag I purchased to replace my old backpack. I'm happy with the messenger bag, so I haven't used this backpack and probably won't anytime soon, but here's my first impressions, anyway:

The material is 100% polyester, and it feels like it: thin, platic-y, perhaps water resistant, and it doesn't have any padding except for the straps. It does have some rigidity to it, so the bag will keep some of its shape and won't go limp like an empty sack if there's nothing in it. At a glance, it doesn't seem like it would last, and yet at the same time it seems to be as well-constructed as it can be, considering the material. It's not as big as a standard backpack and that shouldn't surprise anyone (it's got "medium" right in the name and the dimensions are listed) but it held my 16 oz thermos, 7" tablet and 10" notebook comfortably when I tried it on. The main compartment is big enough to fit a netbook, but it would need its own sleeve due to the aforementioned lack of padding.

All in all, it's pretty much what you'd expect from a $10 backpack. At the very least, it would probably make a good backpack for a younger child, a Once in a While Bag for occasional outings or a back-up bag to throw in the closet or trunk of your car, just in case. It might work as an every day carry, but for how long is anyone's guess. I own a larger, good quality Everest backpack and the brand seems to get favorable reviews, so who knows? It might exceed expectations. I'd say if it lasts you an entire school year of consistent use, you'll definitely have gotten your money's worth.

I bought this for my daughter who is of preschool age. It is the perfect size for her age group, and she is in love with the design we got. It seems to be a very sturdy material. I have had backpacks of the same material and they seemed to hold up so I trust this one will too.

If you have an elementary school aged child, this is a nice backpack. It's light and durable. I wouldn't suggest it for older students. It's kinda small.

Within the first week of school, the backpack already got a hole in it. I was pretty disappointed by that

We bought 2 of these bags in 2 different designs. One of them is noticeably thinner material than the other. I will be surprised if my son doesn't rip it shortly after school starts. This is a good size for elementary school kids but it would be too small for middle school on up. The thinner bag is the one with blue, lighter blue, grey, and black checkered design. My other sons bag (the thicker one) is green, blue, and grey.

Very poor design decision with the zipper. It is terrible -- it has a flap of fabric that overlaps the zipper area. Inevitably, the flap gets caught in the over-sized zipper. The zipper teeth are also plastic, so once the fabric gets caught in it and chewed up, the teeth get warped and will never zip properly again.

Do not waste your money or time on this backpack. It's cute, but quite flimsy and they obviously cut corners with the design. Especially don't buy it for a school-aged child as I did, since the zipper will REALLY make them mad, and you'll just need a replacement in a hurry.

A good backpack is worth the money - I only bought this cheapo one because my son liked the fabric so much.

Perfect for kindergarteners or small people!! It is small! It is a great, basic back pack, a little snug for a binder, schoolbook and lunch sack tho- so if you're looking for a stylish little bag, this is it- if you are looking for a full sized, cram it full of a ton of books and stuff bag, keep looking!

Got it for my daughter in kindergarten and it works great. Fits her folder, lunch box and a few extras without any trouble. Seems to be pretty durable and I like that it doesn't stain easily (or would shows stains because of the coloration). Nice little backpack for elementary school kids.

Nice bag - cute design - seems well made. "Medium" size bag is still very small. Not enough room to put in a 3 ring binder and a lunchbox together.

Holds TOO much stuff. What great bags are made of. I'm NEVER disappointed by this brand. Comfortable on the shoulders, and you can carry bricks with it.
