The Land's End pack gets my vote. I bought one for my son last year as he went to First Grade. He beat the crap outta that thing... I am still in therapy over the stuff I found in there... I washed it this year in prep for Back to School, and it's like new. And I know he dragged it on stone roads, threw it under the seat on the bus, left it in the rain, generally used it like a little boy would. He's got it packed this year and ready to head to second grade. Highly recommended.


I got an awesome toy story 3 one at walmart for $10. They had some cute flame ones for $4 something.
