Student Pack Prince is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 9.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Even Better in Person! I’ve wanted this backpack for awhile but finally justified it when it was 30% off. When it arrived, the black looked even better in person than what I saw online. I am a Masters Law student so I have a lot of books and it fits everything, and more! Highly recommend it. I have a feeling it will last be a long time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from better than the picture I bought this backpack for my husband. It arrive quickly and after opening the box I QUICKLY logged back on and ordered one for myself. I ordered it in Natural for me because I love Roots' products in the Natural color. This backpack is everything I need for daily use AND for travelling. I'll get mine today (yes! I paid for express shipping I'm so excited). I hope you find this review useful. Cheers!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favorite backpack for years I got this backpack as a gift in 2012 and it still looks amazing. It doesn't look like 7 years old bag. I've done some minor repairs but thanks goodness that the straps are long and solid. It goes with me eveywhere: to all journeys (through deserts, oceans, forests and mountains), to the office, grocery stores, museums and theatres. Everywhere. I have changed three countries already but this bag is always with me. Thanks for great job!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Favorite bag! My go to bag for everything. I am in university and it is so versatile for school, the gym, running around town, etc. Will never need another backpack again!! The price was what first made me hold back on purchasing but I'm so glad I put aside some extra money for it as it is totally worth it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bought in 1989 Love love love this bag. I bought this pack at the Roots in Banff in 1989. It still looks as good as the day I bought it. It was great when I was in school and it continues to function as a great day bag. I work as a restaurant server and it holds a full set of work clothes and a pair of shoes with room left over. Everything I could practically need in a day. The bag is extremely well made. I've overstuffed it many many times and the zipper has held strong. I wish I could include a picture to prove how good this bag looks. (Whoah! I just saw that I can! I took the pic without wiping it down or anything, just picked it up off the floor.) If the leather naturally starts to fade a bit from the sun I bring it to a store to have it reconditioned. They send it to the Roots workshop and it comes back as good as new. I think I've done this 3 times over the years. The exterior design has changed a bit over the years but it is almost exactly the same bag as the one that is sold now. Back when I bought the bag it had a tiny leather loop for hanging it on a hook and I broke it. I sent it back to the workshop and asked them to replace it with the a new handle. It came back perfect. I cannot recommend this bag enough. The dye also doesn't run onto my clothes. I've worn it on hot days when hiking or walking and the straps haven't left marks on my shirts. (It did happen once but I had just used hand sanitizer.) It does tend to crumple a bit as it doesn't have a stiff back panel to offer support like some nylon backpacks. I solved this by keeping my laptop nylon sleeve in the pack with a paper notepad with a stiff cardboard backing. Not a perfect solution but it does the job. It's great for going to and from school but it wouldn't be very good at all for use over a long period of time if you had to wear it for hours every day. I also wish that the leather panel that protects the front pocket zipper would lie flat all the time. It tends to fold up instead of down. Overall it may seem like a lot of money for a backpack but I can tell you that they last forever. If this review sounds like a sales pitch I did sell luggage for 3 years in Montreal for a private travel store.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from WOW I think my title says it all. But to give a little more detail, this is one of my absolute favourite Roots purchases. I chose the black prince leather with the black stitching because I think it looks really rich and beautiful, while the white stitching seems more casual to me. The interior pockets are wonderful for cords and headphones so they don't get mixed up and tangled with your other things. The size of the bag really surprised me when I opened up the box that was delivered to my house. I was worried the pack would be too small when wording online, but it's the PERFECT size for a university student. For reference, you can easily fit 4 to 5 textbooks, a laptop, a pencil pouch, a water bottle, and a light jacket in the bag stuffed. When I put my clipboards and books in the bag, tiny pieces of the leather interior stick to the pages, but that is a very small price to pay for such a luxurious bag and you should know that these little leather particles tend to shed off prince leather regardless. I think the only way Roots could improve this bag is by putting an interior lining inside. I've had the Student Pack since September and it has not left my side since and it still looks brand new!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Last Knapsack You'll Ever Buy. (Period.) I was thinking of making my review just a one liner catchy "title". But thought I'd better add some details. First off, this pack isnt just for students, its a versitile, stylish knapsack for everyone, everyday and anytime. The pockets and zipper compartments are spacious and generous. Quick access outer pockets for your personal items you need to store but get to fast. Importantly the main is big enough for a notebook, laptop or your ipad. The weight is just about right too. Lastly the leather is rich soft and striking and will last the test of time. Thanks Roots.
