I wish I had known about L.L. Bean backpacks when my children were little. Did you know that they are 100%guaranteed? My sister bought these for each of her children when they started kindergarten and she never had to buy another one. L.L. Bean will replace them if they rip, tear, zipper breaks or for any other reason at any time. Right now they are on sale for 20% off. Prices start under $20.00. Now where can you get a better deal?
