This is a great kids pack. My kiddo used this bag last year for kindergarten and it still looks great and has no flaws. He's using the bag again this year and now he's taking it on Cub Scout camp outs. This is a tough bag that will last for years. I've got two other boys after this one and I know that when my first outgrows it this bag will still get use by my other boys for another 10 years or more (I'm still using my 16 year old TNF backpack I purchased in college).

Lots of reviews about this being too small. Guess people didn't read the product description or the specs before they bought it(specs are kind of important...TNF makes technical outdoor gear, not walmart garbage). The bag does fit school folders. Occasionally an oversized kindergarten library book didn't fit well and art projects had to be rolled up to fit inside. I am still able to load in his books, his soft-sized lunch box, his folder and a jacket with room to spare. And my kiddo doesn't look like he's about to fall over and be stuck like a turtle on his shell from an oversized, overloaded bag.

And if you're worried about the cost...consider years of use. I'd be buying a new bag from target or walmart for school every year. This bag is going on two years and I anticipate many more. Even if my three boys use it two years each that is six years of use or $7.50/year. Try getting that kind of value from a big box store.

    Fantastic backpack

    By 

    from Ontario Canada

    Comments about The North Face Happy Camper Backpack - Youth - Girl's:

    We are so pleased with this. The size is perfect for our 5 year old.
    The quality is great unlike so many kids backpacks on the market. I love the fact there are minimal pockets - keeps it simple & easy for my little one to find her things! The bungee cord at the front is perfect for transporting her snowpants in the winter - especially if they are wet!
    I did not find the description misleading like other reviewers - the dimension specs are provided and are accurate.

    Comments about The North Face Happy Camper Backpack - Youth - Girl's:

    This is the second time I purchased from Northface with the discription being misleading. I purchased this backpack for my daughter thinking this was the name of the backpack. Also, it said one size. My daughter is 14. This backpack was meant for a toddler. I am so upset because something else I ordered was too small with a misleading discription as well. Makes me ever want to order from this store again! Disgruntled.

        Comments about The North Face Happy Camper Backpack - Youth - Girl's:

        This is a perfect backpack for my 5 year old. It perfect size for a binder, and folders. Not huge of course because it is for a child, and size appropriate. It is actually the first backpack I ever found that fits my son, looks good. Very bright, and my son loved the colors. It is good quality, and has easy access pockets on the sides and front. We love it.

        Perfect size

        By 

        from Anchorage, AK

        Comments about The North Face Happy Camper Backpack - Youth - Girl's:

        I have 2 younger children who are very hard on backpacks. My youngest child (a boy) is a well above average sized 5 year old, but 'normal' backpacks were just too big. This year he is starting school and needed a backpack that fit him, the Happy Camper is a perfect fit. My daughter is on the petite side and her old backpack hit her behind her knees and weighed her down. This backpack is also the perfect size for her. They are also very durable for my children who seem to go through a backpack every 3 or 4 months. Thank you

        Very Small

        Comments about The North Face Happy Camper Backpack - Youth - Girl's:

        I need a backpack for school, and because this said one size, I thought it would be perfect. I didn??t want something to large, but this is entirely too small. My 13 inch laptop doesn??t even fit. It would be okay for a young child (pre-k/kindergarten).
