Are these good backpacks? I always used Jansport or Eastpak and they lasted forever. Do you have to replace these yearly?
These are good, but my personal favorite are Lands End. They usually have a 50% off sale in August, which makes them very affordable. They also have a lifetime satisfaction guarantee, and will be replaced no questions asked. I prefer the variety of size/style options too.

Very late to this, but for some reason I buy my DD new backpacks at the start of every school year. I have alternated between Lands End and Pottery Barn styles, mostly because we always like to get matching lunch boxes. This past year she wanted a rolling backpack from Pottery Barn and it was awful! We returned it twice for broken straps and last weekend made an end of year celebration out of throwing it in the trash. lol. All this week she's been using her Land's End backpack from 1st grade, and she's a rising 5th grader. So, I second Lands End. lol
