This is not a sponsored review, for everybody to know. I just decided to make a review of the Roots backpack, which I bought from Sears few months ago for my son to use for school.
I thought Roots is a good quality brand. Not all expensive stuff is really in a good quality, and this is just another proof and from my personal experience. I decided to buy a Roots backpack because my son’s old one which he used for school since kindergarten was seemed smaller now that he’s in Grade one. Although they don’t have a textbook to put in the backpack and bring back and forth to school, but they have folders for their assignment and the agenda. So I got the bigger one now which I thought would last for more than a year like my son’s old bag from the Philippines, which he’ve been using starting his kindergarten class back 2012 till December last year.
I bought the backpack just this year around February and what month are we now? It is still April and the backpack from Roots seems won’t last for 6 months. How much I paid for it? Well, almost $55 including taxes, and it hurts to think that the bag isn’t worthy enough for the asking price. Now what happens to the Roots backpack? Well, this image below is only what happened. The lining started getting thinner and surely pretty soon it will get totally give in and become useless in just a short period of service. Whew! That certainly hurts my wallet! Would you buy such type of quality folks with such amount of price? Hmmmm… I don’t think so!
Honestly, I like this bag because it has a lot of compartments, the thick padding and adjustable shoulder straps plus there’s a mesh cell/media pocket and other beautiful features, however because of what happened to it, its great features covered with negative factors.
And I don’t think the ruptures of the bag is purely the fault of my son for using it. If I only knew that this is what will happen in a few months after taking it home, I should only make it for the eyes only. Hmmm…anyway, we’ll see what I can do with this bag. I’ll let you know folks once something good news come.
