Backpack recommendations?

I'm new hear and was excited to see a February 2005 board since I have a March 2005 kiddo which is pretty close! We are gearing up for back to school and I'm wondering if anyone has any backpack recommendations? We went through not one, not two, but THREE bookbags last year!!! IF I can convince her to go without one of those cheap, character bookbags, what brand would you recommend? I've heard pretty good things about Jansport but those seem especially pricey...

Oh, hi there!  We kind of abandoned this board due to ivillage functionality issues (after trying to stick it out for several months!).  But maybe we'll try it again and see if it's working now...

For backpacks, my plan is always to buy a GOOD bag.  I have only purchased from LL Bean (about $30 for a backpack) and ours have lasted a long time.  In fact, we have too many backpacks, because my kids want new ones before they wear out!  But that's definitely my recommendation!
