The eBags Bookworm pack is the perfect size for a tween "with a volume of 1420 cubic inches. It features S-contoured shoulder straps, 12 points of reflective fabrics, and a privacy ID window on the back of the pack that discretely shows only a child’s first name. The bottom panel is coated for abrasion protection and reduced moisture absorption from wet ground surfaces."
My daughter loves it in black, but especially loves the reflective details. It makes the backpack stand out from an ordinary backpack, but yet is not too flashy.
The straps are padded and super comfortable, even with her heavy books. As many of you know, she was sick a couple of weeks ago, and had a TON of homework to bring back and forth, making her loads heavy! The straps made it much more comfortable to carry her books!
We love these side pockets with elastic. She often carries a water bottle in them (they are the perfect size). She also carries snacks in them from time to time. The overall construction for the backpack is really wonderful, and I know it will last through a few school years! With a LIFETIME warranty, I KNOW it will!
