Roots backpackThis 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. Hmmmanyway, we’ll see what I can do with this bag. I’ll let you know folks once something good news come.

    That is a beautiful bag! Although I also have to agree that paying high price for a products does not mean it is of high quality. Considering the age of your son and what he is toting around in the bag did you try contacting the store for a refund or an exchange. It really is a shame that you paid so much for this nice bag and ended up with such bad results.

    I am sorry to hear about your experience. We go through a lot of backpacks in my house too. I just can never seem to come across a quality one.

    I like the looks of this and know my son would too. He needs a new backpack right now. Seems the one I got him at the beginning of the year had already worn out.

    Looks like money down the drain. In spite of the fact that it has many compartments, a plus also for me, I don’t think this is worth buying.

    I also like bags with many compartments because I always find it hard to locate my things inside. I have to like get everything out until I find what’s I’m looking for and put back everything again haha.

    Oh, my. Quiet expensive and it’s true that it’s not purely the fault of your son. Back packs are supposed to last for a very long time. I am using an Oakley and a back pack from American express credit card. Both are durable – I’ve used those bags to several trips. They’re both 4 yrs old.

    It seems very sturdy and affordable for consumers. I usually prefer a backpack that’s light and handy.

    We really need to make sure the worth of our money in anything we purchase and it is nice to see reviews that are not sponsored because it just really shows a genuine recommendation from the user or blogger. I had a backpack from Halo, their specialty is for laptop or gadget bags but since it was a backpack I also use it for school, lots of compartments which I really love then very comfortable to carry and the best and most durable backpack I had.

    I think I’ll also like that bag because it’s functional :) Marami kasing compartments and perfect for someone like me who loves bringing so much stuff wherever I go.

    Oh dear that is too bad. I thought it would last more than 6 months. I hope it will still do good for you :(
