This backpack has lasted our kindergartener 4 months and now it’s pretty much trash. The water bottle holders are torn and falling apart, the zippers no longer work. It’s terrible.

Although the book bag is super cute, it’s pretty poor quality. We’ve had to sew the gray straps (in several places near the chest strap) and handle at the top back on. My daughter is only in third grade with not a lot to carry. This shouldn’t be happening.

Falls Apart Fast

Jake M - 3 months ago
Cat and Jack consistently is all fashion, no form. Nothing holds up and this backpack is no exception. It started falling apart after a single month of use. Large tears started forming pretty soon after my daughter started attending school. Absolutely no reason it should be as bad as it is. I'm fairly certain a plastic target bag would have held up better.

Sun Fading

TheVines - 4 months ago, Verified purchaser
I've bought these backpacks for the past 2 years and they've been great! The backpack themselves are durable and we love all the pockets. So naturally I decided to purchase them for a 3rd year. However, something must have changed for the fabric. I purchased the Butterfly and Skateboard... and they both have changed color/faded in the sun almost instantly. I do live in a state that gets abundant sun all day and year long and the backpacks are hung outside, but they did previous years as well with no fading. The skateboard backpack has turned the grey to be a red/pink color... no longer preferred to be used by our son. The butterfly backpack that has a navy blue background, is now a purple background. Extremely disappointing that they changed colors within 2 days at school. I will not be buying them next school year.

It’s been a great backpack for my son, so far. However, about two weeks into using it, the strap to clip it in the front ripped (see photo). He’s disappointed he can’t buckle that part anymore.

My son loved the backpack but the strap broke after using it for only 7 days of school. He only had 1 one subject notebook, 2 folders with 1 sheet of paper in each, and a water bottle.

Very Limited Boys Selection

3 out of 5 stars
Would recommend
Loribrownie - 4 months ago, Verified purchaser
I like this, but don’t appreciate the selection for boys - good item at a good price point. But…. I get that Target is going more gender neutral, but why can’t dinosaurs just be their actual colors? Why do they need to be rainbow? Why does the doodle design need to have a purple design, heart keychain, and straps? There was truly only one option for boys - the skateboard one which my son doesn’t even really like. Plus all the boys at his school have this same back-pack due to the limited boys selection. Disappointed and wish target would go gender neutral without pink and purple. Girls like blue, red and green. Why not do more items in these colors. Its easier for girls to buy boy items, than it is for boys.

The quality on these Cat & Jack backpacks have definitely gone down. They used to be really cute and really well made. The shoulder straps used to be padded as well as the back, not anymore. I was super disappointed to see that the straps weren't padded, neither was the back, and there was no cute graphic on the back. My daughter was so disappointed she asked if she could use her old Cat & Jack backpack and just wash it. I have purchased these Cat & Jack backpacks for my daughter because of the excellent quality and cute graphics, so she has two of them and immediately noticed the difference with the newest one as did I. Target please fix this and go back to making these backpacks how they were when you first released this brand! This item was returned! I have included pics of one of my daughter's older Cat & Jack backpacks, please go back to making them like that again.
