North Face Recon Backpack
The only reason I give it 4 stars is because my 11 yr old son has had his only one month. However, it seems to be a very sturdy backpack and on top of that, it looks really good. He's pretty hard on backpacks, so he needed one that will hold up to some pretty hard slinging around. Since we got it for him I've noticed several just like it that my teenaged students carry and they too seem very sturdy. If it doesn't hold up for very long, I will write back and revise my review, but for now it's all good :)!!
