Unfortunately, these were made better/stronger stitching IN THE PAST! We have 4 kids and have been buying them, in multiples, for years. It truly is a great design, esp for high school. BUT, starting last year, they didn’t hold up to the normal amount of weight. They start to rip at the top connection strap/bag at the shoulder and strangely, the interior pocket. PLEASE Target, contact your manufacturer and fix this because I’m still searching for a better pack!
