So I am trying to incorporate my wife and kids more these days on certain types of gear. As we all know kids are really hard on clothing, shoes and pretty much everything in between so I though who better to test a backpack than a kid at school! I mean, as a parent it seems like I buy a new school backpack every year because they just fall apart, get ripped and/or simply do not last. That’s where the Granite Gear Eagle Campus Backpacks come into the story. eagle_verbena_petal

The packs are are of high quality materials and have a lot of great features. The “BARRIER” water repellence technology provides a 360 degree water repellency coverage including water repellent zipper and fabric and an extreme water repellent valuables pocket thats Tricot lined. Mix all of that with a limited lifetime warranty and you have a no worries $40 backpack that will last for a while (Let’s see how it goes).

Here are some of the key features:

  • #Repelaweave fabric with a #Taurpalite bottom for maximum protection
  • Ergonomic Max Load Multi-compartment design
  • Barrier zipper #Tricot lined pocket to keep your valuables safe
  • High density foam shoulder harness
  • Fully padded back panel
  • Adjustable compression straps
  • Swivel clip and lash straps for easy attachment eagle_flint_nwo

So my kids went through both bags in about 7 months of the school year. The zippers broke in the same place on both packs. I contacted Granite Gear and told them what had happened. I even sent the pictures and Granite Gear stood behind their policy and replaced both packs without any hassle. All I had to do was take a black sharpie marker to the Granite Gear logos and “black them out”

The team at Granite Gear are very helpful and their customer service is top notch. Just in case anything goes wrong, you can bet that they will stand behind their product and take care of the customer!
