LL BEAN – The Travelling Backpack!

 

We are a family of travelers, and I am always in search of the latest, hippest, and different style of bag that suit our needs.  And LL Bean never seems to disappoint.

Sending our youngest off to Kindergarten this year, has left me searching for the perfect back pack and lunch tote to get her through the school week.  I wanted a quality product, big enough for school days and weekend travel…and I found the perfect set for us.

WHY WE LOVE IT – MONOGRAMS!!  Who doesn’t love a monogrammed bag?  We chose the Original Book Pack in Flower Power and a color matched Lunch Box in Beach Rose.

The choices are endless with LL Bean, I love the color schemes and themes.  I went with something a bit different than what we would hopefully see in the classroom, which would help to easily identify our daughter’s bag in a sea of 22 others.  We chose to have initials monogrammed (we choose initials vs her first name for safety reasons).  My daughter’s height is 47 inches, and the pack fit perfectly on her.  The pack measures 16-17” on her back – and is easy to get on and off.  We also love the safety aspect of the reflective material which will come in handy on our dark rainy Vancouver days (the pack is also weather proof – double bonus!)  I also really like the two front zipper sections for smaller items.  I found the zippers easily zipped for little hands as well.

The pack easily accommodates the lunch tote, a drink bottle, sweatshirt, sneakers, and school paper work. With room to spare.

Lunch Tote – at first glance, I was a bit skeptical on the size. I am a bit of an over packer by nature.  I was pleasantly surprised on the amount you can get in this lunch box. It holds everything we need for a full day of school. It has room for a flat ice pack, and easily accommodates a generous lunch and snacks.

I have been a lover of LL Bean for years.  Based out of Maine, USA, the quality, workmanship and the ease of ordering makes this a no brainer for me, and my go to.

PS, I have the Boat & Tote Zip Top in Medium. Seriously. Just order it!  I went with Tidal Teal – You won’t be disappointed!  It is my airplane bag, my weekender bag, it is my go to tote.  Monogrammed of course!

As you can see, our daughter is thrilled to be heading off to Kindergarten, (or her next flight) and in style with LL BEAN!

 

LL Bean provided us with this fantastic back pack and lunch box in exchange for our product review.  As always, our opinions are our own.
