Q & As

Rated 1.5 out of 5 by 6 reviewers.
Rated 1 out of 5 Very poor quality. Like a previous review I was surprised at the low quality of this product from John Lewis. Within the first half term the zip had broken and the reflective strips cracked and partly fallen off. Not what I expect from John Lewis. I also purchsed the 'rose print satchel' for my daughter, which is wearing well if anyone is looking for a bag for a girl. 19 November 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Waste of Money My son has used this bag for less than 3 weeks, and the zip has already broken. Poor quality , very unexpected from John Lewis, and very disappointing Buy something else, a 10p carrier bag would be better quality.. 04 September 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great Value for Money I was hesitant to buy this bag due to a previous review, but I brought it for my son who has used it every day for months with all his heavy school books and folders inside. It has been absolutely fine with no signs of wear and tear at all. I think this is great value for this price and wanted to comment so not to put others off. 11 June 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Terrible quality I agree with the other reviews. My son had only used this bag for 3 months before it started to fall apart, the seams, handle, straps, basically every part of the bag is badly made. Quite shocked that John Lewis continue to stock this product despite the reviews from customers. 01 April 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by poor quality Bought this bag for my daughter to use for school in September, it is now in the bin. Seams on flap first started to come apart , to be followed by one of the seams on the main part of the bag. I know its not the most expensive of bags, but I did expect it to last longer than this. Bag otherwise was perfect for her requirements, such a shame the quality was so poor. 13 November 2013
Rated 1 out of 5 by seam on front flap is really bad quality Sad to say that this bag is very poor quality. I loved the design and it's a perfect size for my son for school, however we are on our second one and the seam has gone again in the same spot !! 2 bags in less than a month. Another one is being delivered tomorrow so fingers crossed. 01 October 2013
