Okay, I know I just posted a free shipping code for Lands’ End a few days ago (code MENS and PIN 6724), but I thought I’d take this opportunity to point out a great deal there.
If you’ve been reading me for any length of time at all, you know that I’m a big believer in buying a quality backpack from a manufacturer that offers a lifetime guarantee. My kids have LL Bean rolling packs that I bought on clearance, and Bean has already replaced them once, no questions asked (defective handles).
Of course, now my kids have these awesome rolling packs that I thought were such a good idea because they, you know, roll, but at their school they are not allowed to roll their bags. And that means they have to carry them. And it turns out that the rolling bags—what with the wheels and the handles—are kind of heavy. And my kids are kind of small.
So now I’m shopping for new backpacks. (We’ll still use these for trips—there’s nothing better than a rolling backpack when you take a kid on a plane!) Lo and behold, Lands’ End has some awesome ones marked way down. Go to Lands’ End and search for ergo to find their ergonomic backpacks in a variety of colors. Originally nearly $40, they’re now just $11.99! (There’s a junior version, too, for smaller kids, for $14.99.) They’re ergonomically designed, with plenty of padding, and curved straps.
With the free shipping code, I can get them new school-ready packs with a lifetime guarantee for less than an uncomfortable, no-name bag at Target would’ve cost me.
Today is a good day.
