The 4 Best Kids' Backpacks for School

We asked our Cozi Families on Facebook to tell us which are the most durable backpacks—the ones that made it though the school year and beyond. Here are the four brands that were family favorites.

And remember, even if your kids want a new one before they need a new one, getting a durable backpack that lasts for years means you can recycle it to keep your kid organized: Backpacks make great storage for sports equipment, toy collections, hiking gear, and more!


LL Bean Backpacks

LL Bean's school backpacks were chosen for their lifetime guarantee, not that you'll need it. It sounds like they last forever.

"LL Bean - they last forever and have free product repair/replacement! " --Suzanna A

"LLBean - This is the end of the 4th year for this backpack and it's still going strong!!" --Jennie M

"My son is graduating from high school and his LL Bean backback lasted 12 years before the zipper broke!! When a boy can use the same backpack from kindergarten to graduation, that's value!!" --Pam C

Lands' End Backpacks

Lands End school backpacks are another long-lasting brand, and as an added bonus the lunchboxes stand up well are are toxin-free.

"My son's Land's End backpack and lunch box are on their second year! The Land's End lunch box is toxin free if you are worried about that kind of thing and very sturdy." --Amy C.

"Lands End is the only way to go." --Carla D

"Lands End backpack survived two years of preschool and still looks like it's in perfect condition! " Stefanie R.

Jansport Backpacks

You probably come across Jansport school backpacks in the stores you already shop at for school supplies and gear. Our families say it's a great basic choice!

"Jansport! Love it this is its third season and still going strong!" --Nicole P.

"My son has had the same backpack for 3yrs. It's a plain old JanSport....I think we'll use it again next still looks brand new!" Nicki G.

The Children's Place Backpacks

We hadn't thought of the The Children's Place for school backpacks, but our families were in the know on that one!

"My son's Children's Place backpack is on it's 3rd year." --Mary R.

"Just finished the 3rd year with the old-design Children's Place backpack and no signs of wear." --Krisin G.
