Best Backpack for Kids

I am looking for a back to school backpack for some high schooolers.  I was wondering if anyone had any ideas or a brand they preferred.  I found this list but wasn't sure if anyone had any cheaper alternatives.  The last Walmart backpack I bouoght didn't really hold up.

My go to backpacks have always been Jan Sport or a Lands End one, which I believe may have a guarentee on it. I think it really depends on the students also, my ODD had 2 "back packs" she used in high school. She was on a block schedule and so she had one back pack for A block days and one for B block days. one of the days was much less book and supply intensive and she actually used a Vera Bradley Travel Totes and I was surprised at how well it held up for her.
