Win a Lands’ End Backpack for Back to School


I am sure you are familiar with this scene:
Your lovely child returns home form a long day at school, and as they run into the house, their backpack is thrown violently to the ground.
Poor backpacks; they take a lot of abuse.
BackPack  Full

Lands’ End introduced the Cordura StudyHaul Backpack, and it’s perfect for those children who are hard on their backpacks. It’s made of cordura nylon, which resists tears and abrasions better than other standard pack cloth. In fact, it’s three times more durable than standard polyester, and two times more durable than standard nylon.

The Good Housekeeping Research Institute calls the Cordura StudyHaul Backpack a “Grade-A Standout” and gives it the only perfect score for performance.

The Cordura StudyHaul Backpack features C shaped straps that make for a comfortable fit, especially for those students with many books to haul. Its side pockets, with organizational compartments, make storing school supplies a cinch, while keeping them in a handy location.

For the walk to and from the bus each day, the Cordura StudyHaul Backpack has a special pouch/cord port for MP3/CD players.

This sturdy and highly functional backpack can be yours. Lands’ End has provided us with one Cordura StudyHaul backpack in red, to give to one lucky reader.

To enter, please leave a comment below, and please make sure you have read and are following our Back to School Giveaway Guidelines.

This contest is open to both U.S. and Canada.

Good luck!

    Oooo – and it’s my favorite color. I might be tempted to keep it for myself if I win instead of letting the boys use it!!! Stinky boys, they would just put their smelly socks in it anyway!

  2. says

    Backpacks do take a beating! I would love to win this one for my daughter. She is about to start second grade and it would be great for her to have a new one. I really like Lands End. Their products are very well made!

    Oh and BTW I put the giveaway link on my sidebar.

    My four children have owned Lands End backpacks over the years. They last a really long time. In fact, my two girls used the same backpack for both elementary school and middle school. But with all four in high school, I really could use another!

  4. says

    Last year we made the mistake of buying backpacks based on the cuteness factor. By mid-year the zippers had busted and the straps were frayed. We need a sturdy backpack around this house. Count me in :)

  5. says

    Ooh, we could really use a couple great backpacks and something that lasts would be fantastic, particularly for my younger daughter who beats everything up.

  6. says

    You are right about kids being hard on backpacks. They need new ones every year. Thank you for offering this great backpack. Take care and God bless, Cory

    I would like to win this awesome backpack for my daughter to use not only for school, but for taking on trips!
    I’ve posted a link back to here and the Land’s End contest page (lower down) on my blog!

  8. Sandra says

    This would be a terrific backpack for my son who is getting big enough now to help carry some of his own stuff on trips and outings.

    I bought a Land’s End back pack for my oldest daughter and it is still in wonderful shape two years later. I would love to win this for my youngest who is starting kindergarten this fall!

  11. says

    Lands End is one of my favorite places to shop online! The backpack looks like a great one. I’ve got the button on my sidebar and linked to the general Back to School contest on Wedesday, is that all I need to do to enter?

  12. says

    I bought one of these for my daughter for school this year and she is so in love with it already! I would recommend this particular backpack to anyone in search of one with neat compartments and sturdiness. I’d love to win another one to give to save for my youngest daughter! Whooo hooo

  13. says

    We need a good, sturdy backpack, we bought an ‘el cheapo’ to save money – and it ended up being a waste of money – that thing literally fell apart after just a few months!

  14. says

    I am thinking this may be the diaper bad for me. Considering something has happened to the two previously owned. Note though that one was an actual diaper bag while the second, and current, one is a backpack i bought from sea world aka P.O.S.

  15. says

    I really like Lands’ End stuff… the backpacks are super durable! (I wish I knew where the one I had in college (over 15 years ago) is!) 😉


    Thank you!

  16. Rebecca C says


    Wow, you have some great giveaways, and this looks to be a great backpack. Nowadays they don’t tend to be very sturdy, but this looks like a very sturdy backpack!

  17. says

    Ohhh this sounds perfect for my son because he destroys all the other ones!!! And it is his favorite color RED!!! How more perfect could you get!?!?!?

  18. Karen P says

    this is the first time I have been to your blog and I have to tell you…I am loving it.

    I don’t have an url… but I will be telling everyone to come to your blog. I love it here.

    This bag is exactly what my granddaughter Ally needs. How I would love to win this for her. Since she is the apple of my eye…the color is perfect.

    I don’t have an url but I will tell everyone about your sight you can be sure.

  19. says

    Every part of both of my daughters’ backpacks from last year was in perfect shape – except for the bottoms, which were worn completely through on both backpacks. I would love to win this for Hannah (whose favorite color is red) so we can keep from having to buy new backpacks for her every year! :)

  20. says

    I have a new teen this year and his backpack of long ago—his “kiddy” backpack—is useless. I know he’d like a new one like this! Please enter us! :)

    Also, I added a button!

    Thank you!

  21. Lianne says

    We have had Land’s End backpacks for many years now, and LOVE them…we plan on buying a new one this year as well!!

  22. Jessica T says

    This would be awesome! K’s need “real backpacks” I’ve been told, not preschool back packs! So, we are inthe market for a new one!

  23. Mattie says

    My 10 year old surely could use this. She is starting a new school where I am told she will be bringing home massive amounts of homework/books every day requiring a durable/sturdy backpack, which we currently do not have. You could remedy this…I am so subtle.

  24. mo says

    OH! Nice ! Much better han the walmart (no offence, my boy loves it, it’s camo print or GIJOE prnt as he calls is) but RED is his favorite color and he is hard on his backpacks so a lands end would be awsome !

    Enter us in this one !

  25. tracey c says

  26. Meg says

    My youngest son is in college & does alot of walking with alot of books. He sure could use a sturdy backpack – Lands’ End is great quality!

  27. Oupscdaisy says

    My granddaughter goes through backpacks like there is no tomorrow, would be nice to have a spare. Thank you for offering this one up.

  28. says

    My son has to have TWO backpacks this year. One for “A” day and one for “B” day. There are no lockers so the backpacks are their lockers. A GREAT backpack is a must!! Winning this one would be awesome.

  29. says

    School started July 21 and dd’s pack ripped right away! She goes through several a year. This would come in handy. solta(at)hotmaildotcom

  30. LeeAnn P. says

    I love Land’s End! Not many companies put out such consistently high quality products! School starts soon and we could sure use this!

  31. Susan says

  39. Renee Concolino says

    I have heard nothing but good things about these backpacks. They rate quite high in regards to their durability, they are also quite stylish.

    When you take your gold jewelry to get valued at your nearest pawn shop you will not be getting the right gold prices, and this is guaranteed. This is because at a shop that needs to resell their items, you are given less money, so that the store can profit. The Cash for Gold Tampa system was developed by Jazz Jewelers with the aim of helping those who want to get rid of broken gold items and gold items like coins and watches. So, what is it we do exactly? Well, we will look at the current gold prices and then the value of your gold according to this. We will check the quality, the karat, and the class of your gold, and we will take into consideration the purity of your gold piece. We will then look at the weight, and then finally we will look at the gold market because we pay you according to the market, and not according to profit making on our part.
    If you have any questions, please call.
