REI Big School Daypack - Kids'is rated2.5out of5by2.
Rated2out of5byfromOne strap doesn't holdI bought this for my first grader, and size wise it's fine. We're able to fit a folder, a library book, a pair of sneakers, a lunch box, a couple of snack boxes and water bottle on the outside. When it's full, it gets pretty heavy for a first grader. What I have a problem with is one of the shoulder straps doesn't stay in place and is loose. We're tried adjusting it several times, but it still loosens after wearing.

Rated3out of5byfromA Preschooler-sized PackPack seems to be of very good quality, but of insufficient size to meet the school-travel needs of a child older than 5. We bought it for our 9 year-old, who loved the color scheme, but there is no way to fit books, supplies and a lunch inside this pack. Buy it for your preschooler, but find something else for an older child.
