        I bought this backpack as a small(er) option for my son who was entering Kindergarten. I wanted to buy a quality backpack that could potentially last a few years. My experience with North Face backpacks has been positive and I have had my Jester backpack for over 6 years.

        Unfortunately, the same cannot be said about this backpack. Although super comfortable (per my son) and visually appealing (Lightening bolt pattern) the side pockets were demolished within weeks of use. This is a kindergartner. I know kids can be heavy on clothes but a backpack? It appears that North Face did not think to reinforce the bottom of these side pockets leaving no protection between the ground or whatever surface the bag rests on and what is inside the pockets.

          I bought this backpack for my son when he entered Kindergarten. It held up the whole year, and I was happy that I wouldn't have to buy him a new one when he started 1st grade. The quality of the bag is amazing, however, it is almost too small for his 1st grade binder this year, which is 1 and 1/2". The depth is fine, but the width is the problem. I'm sure the bag will hold up the rest of the year, and next year I will buy the adult version of the Recon Squash...and hand the Youth size down to my youngest who will be entering Kindergarten next year.

          Great for young kids, won't work for older ones!

          We bought two of these, one for our 1st grader and one for our 5th grader (she's tiny!). The backpack itself is great, we love the look and feel of it, but it is pretty small. The fifth grader can't even fit her binder in it. I think this will be perfect through 2nd grade, maybe even 3rd, but when they really have to start carrying things for school, it's just too small! We had to return the 5th graders bag, but we're keeping the other one!

          Thinking out of the box for a mens diaper bag. Not bulky or atrocious. Performs perfectly as such. Plenty of pockets and storage for a small pack. Should last long enough for the little one to take to school too.

              Gave this to my daughter for her 2nd birthday so she can carry her own snacks and toys when we travel! The chest clasp is perfect. She will have this for years and will grow into it but she can wear it and wants to wear it!

                The first backpack we bought is still going strong 3.5 years later, and you know children are usually not kind to backpacks. We just bought another one for our 2nd child's big kindergarten debut. Great value for a great backpack

                  This was a gift for my daughter in the third grade. She has had a butterfly backpack since she started kindergarten and has been begging for a new backpack. Her dad and I both use north face bags and figured this would be a fun bag to add to the collection. She loves it so much and would definitely buy again.
