5.0 out of 5 stars Finally!! a backpack that rolls well and doesn't get a hole in the bottom!, March 23, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: J World New York Sunrise Rolling Backpack (Apparel)
I have bought my daughter a few different rolling backpacks. They tend to have the same faults:
1. they tend to "flip" over very easily, then the kid will drag them along for a few feet before stopping to flip them back. This leads to...
2. After being dragged along the pavement, the a hole wears into the fabric on the bottom of the backpack opposite the wheels, allowing things to fall out.
3. The "feet" on the base opposite the wheels that allow them to stand up tend to fall off, so then you can't stand the backpack up.
4. After a few weeks, the retractable handle starts to stick and it practically takes an act of Congress to raise and lower it.

Wow! What a difference this backpack is!!
1. The wheels are bigger and more stable than other we have tried. My daughter can wheel this bad boy across a driveway with a significant slope on her way to the bus stop without it tipping over.
2. The base of the backpack is encased in hard plastic, so even when she is being a brat and drags it along the wrong way, the plastic holds up to the punishment
3. Instead of weak little "feet" screwed into the frame, the feet on this are part of the molded plastic base and they are not going anywhere. Having it standing makes it so much easier for my daughter to dig through the horrid pit of crumpled paper and pulverized Cheese-its looking for her homework.
4. The handle is so easy to raise and lower, and it still works.

I am waiting for the other shoe to drop on this backpack as this thing is too good to be true.

It made it through the entire school year and still looks like we just bought it. She's in juniir high now where they don't allow rolling backpacks, but she still uses it as a suitcase.

How can they not allow rolling backpacks, is her school crazy? Back problems and neck issues from the weight from continued carrying of books.
