    terrible lettering
    The Monogrammed DEIS looks like my 4 year old did it. The spacing is off and this is not something I'd expect to see from LL Bean

    I agree with you about the zipper! When my son first got this backpack he got the zipper caught on the flap that covers the zipper (a design mistake for kids) and it took me over 1/2 hour to get it unstuck. Now that the backpack is three years old, the zipper is showing wear. In multiple places the zipper teeth are bent and makes the zipper get stuck. I think that I got my money's worth out of the backpack, but I wish the zipper was a bit more durable because the rest of the backpack looks great!
