      I wish I could buy a normal, regular backpack….we have to have clear or mesh in our county :-( Anyone have any ideas on personalizing a clear or mesh backpack?? Last year I put stickers on my daughters clear backpack but they starting looking gross after a while…like a band-aid that's been on for too long!!

        They did that to us when I was in Highschool…and you know what…we TRIED hiding things in between our books, and I promise you, you still couldn't tell what was in there! I think that's silly….they should implement the walkthrough machines at the door before the clear/mesh backpacks, they really don't make a difference.

          I know!! It's really irritating b/c they're hard to find and in most cases are more expensive than a regular backpack, they hardly ever go on sale that I'm aware of. And the problem for me is, my daughter is messy and throws her unfinished bags of snacks in it and the crumbs get all in it and you can SEE IT since it's clear…soooo annoying and gross!!
          I don't understand why we have to have them….we've never had any trouble with weapons at our school and none in the county as far as I know. I figure a kid who is trying to smuggle a weapon in, is going to find away regardless. Like you said, in between their books, or in their lunchbox, pockets, etc…..
          But that's the rule so we have to follow it so I'm stuck with it, whether I like it or not :-(

        try using those perm. markers you can use on windows – use microsoft and print out the font and size you want it , then put inside the bookbag- and trace. just a thought…

        • 3monkeysmom

          That's a good idea :-) Thanks!

      You could use Iron on letters or shapes.

      • 3monkeysmom

        I was thinking about that….. but will it work on mesh with all those holes in it? Probably would melt the clear one.

      Love L.L. Bean, and how they stand behind their very durable products! Have used their guarantee more than once. So polite and on hassle, too:)

      oops! “no” hassle, I meant ; )

      Their backpacks are definitely worth the price. I bought one for my son 3 years ago, and it still looks brand new!! Bought two more for the other kids last year – great value!!

    • Amy

      I used the same LL Bean backpack for all 4 years of college, 15 years ago! My backpack is still in good shape today despite years of carrying books, camping, overnighting, and as a carry-on at the airport. Go LL Bean for making such a great backpack!

      WOW! They must have THE best customer service people and policies ever!! I placed an order for 2 backpacks earlier today before I came to this site. I just called them to see about getting a credit on the shipping, and they did it gladly. Amazing!

    • Cfwtx

      I ordered a backpack and two lunchboxes earlier this evening before I saw the code for free shipping. I just emailed customer service and they said they would be happy to credit my card for the shipping fee! I love this store!

    • Ajrlkeown

      I can't find a place to enter the code for free shipping. Can someone please help me out??

      • Ajrlkeown

        Nevermind, my brain must be working better than it was yesterday because I found it!!

    • Deborah
