  • I second the Jansport recommendation. They are affordable and hold up well. I am not sure they are any bigger than a standard backpack and I wouldn't fill it too full any way, kids are not supposed to carry more than (I think) 10% of their body weight in their backpack or else it puts strain on their back.

  • Study= lifetime warranty from LL Bean

  • LLBean. They have a lifetime guarentee, so you can send it back like 10 years later and get a new one.

  • I know a lot of stores like JC Penny's , Sears, have a section for backpacks and stuff. Have you tried, target, wal mart, etc? Why do you need such a big back pack?

  • Besides large and sturdy, think about support for the child's back. A great deal of damage can be done by kids carrying backpacks that are too heavy and do not have the proper support.

  • "Jans sport" makes the best back pack and you find them in any dept. store
