I purchased 4 of these backpacks. Each backpack had an issue. On one, the zipper handle broke under light pressure. On another, the snap-on cover had a snap that was broken and wouldn't snap. On all four, the zippers are cumbersome and get caught very easily in surrounding fabric, even while being careful. When I contacted DefendAPack, they told me that it was a one-off issue. They didn't offer to replace or refund. If you're going to spend hard-earned money on a defense backpack, look elsewhere.
Let me start by saying, 'Thank you for your purchase', We apologize for the inconvenience, the last response correspondence we had, was, you were going to get back to us if there were any more backpacks that had defects, because you were only able to unpack one. We responded with, this was a first time issue and could just be a bad batch. We indicated in our email, that we would correct the defect once you finished unpacking the remaining backpacks, just been waiting for your response.
I got this for my 5 year old and its simply perfect. Its lightweight and requires no thinking for it to be protecting. My child simply wears the backpack and this parent feels better.
