I’ve had the bag for about two years now and it’s been my loyal bag nearly everyday since I got it. It’s been through some real roughhousing by this point and it’s not showing any serious signs of slowing down. Just the typical wear and tear of everyday use, but for the most part it’s purely aesthetic.
As some have mentioned, the front zipper has sadly broken for me too. Probably broke after a year of use. I used that pocket quite a lot, so it was a shame, but it’s still possible for me store certain stuff in it that can stay in even with the zip open. Not ideal, but certainly hasn’t stopped me using it.
All in all, I would absolutely recommend the bag, it’s been totally worth the money and when it eventually come to the day where it does break on me, I’m very likely coming right back for a new one.
I purchased this backpack (Pregame) and the colors are so darn beautiful, bright, and attractive! I use this backpack since I purchased it back in August because of my Ness costume for Halloween but now I use it everyday too! The vibrant shades of bright yellow on this version of my backpack are beautiful! I love the yellow and everyone who has seen me with this backpack says they love the colors too! It was definitely worth the price and everything! It helped me complete my Ness costume for Halloween and gave me a nice backpack for everyday use. I love how there are strings that close up the backpack and it is very fancy. I love the brown colors of the Postgame edition but unfortunately it was sold out. I am still very satisfied with my version (Pregame) backpack and I'd never change anything about it if I ever wanted to. I am so glad I bought this backpack and I am very glad I purchased this backpack and I am definitely buying more items from this website in the future.
I have had this backpack for over a year or two now and I still use it. The quality of the canvas, straps, and buttons are very nice, and the franklin badge looks awesome. I kinda wish it looked more like Ness's backpack but its kinda close. The issues I have with it are the inside fabric and the front zipper. The fabric used to line the insides tears extremely easily, I remember seeing tears in the first week. This doesn't affect the integrity of the backpack, but it makes it look kinda shabby inside after a while. The bigger issue is the front zipper pouch. This zipper stopped zipping properly after 6 or so months and I had to buy zipper pouches to pin inside to compensate. It is super annoying having the main pouch look open all the time. I don't know how this problem could be solved, as the metal zipper just doesn't last for some reason.
The canvas material is very nice and so are the straps and buttons. The inside stitched fabric though tears very easily. My main issue though is that the metal zipper on the outside stopped closing the zipper pouch after about 6 months. Very annoying so I had to buy some zipper pouches to pin to the inside so I can still use it. I would buy it again but only if they somehow make the zipper last longer.
This bag just arrived. It's really cool, and I do like it! It has a nice amount of space inside and is overall pretty stylish. However, I have to give it a low rating for the poor quality of the Franklin Badge emblem. In the photos it appears to be deeply stamped into the brown material. However, on the bag I got, the design is barely visible up close, so I highly doubt anyone will recognize it as anything more than a random brown circle from far away. You might think 3 stars is harsh, but here's my verdict... The Franklin Badge design is what makes this an Earthbound/Mother themed bag. Otherwise, it's just some yellow backpack. No one aside from me is going to notice it has anything to do with Mother. Pretty disappointing because I was hoping it would be a good conversation starter to attract some fellow Mother fans.
