for your son if he has to walk to school? This is the first year my son has had to walk to school and I am not looking forward to it--I have a toddler that I either have to drive or will be picked up also--so my oldest may be walking some days by himself; he has been asking for a rolling backpack do you think it is worth it or not?

No, because very few schools allow them. Kids will use that nice luggage type handle to hold on to them and swing them around, they don't maneuver well in crowded hallways and they really slow the kids down. I have yet to see a kid who had a rolling backpack actually pick it up and carry it - even empty - instead of trying to roll the stupid thing down stairs, uneven sidewalks, etc. I don't know where you live, but you may be able to go on your school's website and find a supplies list or the superintends office is usually open year round, you can call them and ask if the rolling backpacks are allowed.

It's the same rules here but I got lucky and found a backpack that's both! You can roll it or slip the handle down and it has straps so he can wear it on his back. Nike makes them and it's great!
