Would this be too big for a 9 year old to carry to school? Want something that will last a few years.

Responded on

As someone with a nine year old and one younger, I am faced with the same question every summer. I did compare this pack for my boy and felt that one could get three to five years out of it; however the price is much more for a school pack than the cheap packs at megastores like Walmart. And face it, most kids want a different one each year. Another question to ask is will my children be able to overload it and slowly hurt his back.

This is a perfect school pack! Might be a tad big for a 9 year old right now, but not too bad, and it's guaranteed to last a long time.
