I bought this rolling backpack for my 9yr/o for school. She didn't want to have to carry a heavy bag on her back all of the time. However, 3 months after purchase, it started leaning forward. The top part of the frame (the handle) dislocated from the base (where the wheels/legs are) of the frame. The first few times, I was able to snap it back into place, but now that's not even working and the bag leans forward horribly when you try to stand it upright on it's own. The bag itself is very large and roomy. The material is sturdy, the wheels are good, but the frame isn't a good fit for the bag itself. I believe the bag is too large for the frame or the base where the wheels/legs are, that is. The legs of the base are to short and it becomes off balance. The frames hasn't completely fallen apart, but after some time, don't depend on the backpack to stand alone. You will need to lean it up against a wall to stand. The bag alone is fine. If based on the bag alone, I would recommend. But this is supposed to be a rolling backpack capable of standing alone when not in use and that is where the backpack is a fail.
