The Jansport Big Student backpack was an excellent choice for my high school student son. It has a great deal of carrying space for all his textbooks, binders, and folders. Additionally, it has a mesh net on the side for carrying a large juice cup. Further, there is a section to store his lunch bag at the top so the sandwiches don't get crushed. All in all a winner in every way - especially the padded shoulder straps.

Do not confuse this for a female bag, It is styled exactly like a normal Jansport backpack. I was bag hunting for a sling bag which is suppose to be smaller and lighter then your average backpack but this is not tiny like a knapsack ether. To give better details of this bag, it has multiple adjustment straps, a strong/adjustable backstrap that clips for easy access/removal and a nice water bottle pocket on the outside, three different compartments, a main one that has a laptop sleeve which fits a laptop/tablet 15" or smaller then extra bag room (although with a laptop that space shrinks fast) and has a small mesh bag (use for pens, erasers, wires, etc.). The next compartment is for your little things (keys, body spray, charger, phone, etc) then the front pocket is smaller but deep which could be used for smaller things that would normally be in your pocket.

I got the multi-intergalactic style, and I was a little disappointed. The image is very grainy, if you're within a foot of the backpack it's quite obvious. The material it's made of is very rough, and there isn't any structure to the backpack itself, so it's pretty saggy once you have books in there. I expected a bit more from Jansport, but since there's a lifetime warranty and it looks pretty neat from far away, I think I'll keep it. Not a bad buy, just not as great as I thought it would be!

I BOUGHT THIS TO REPLACE MY HUSBANDS BROKEN ZIPPERED OLD BACKPACK BY OUTDOORS. THIS IS AS DESCRIBED. I WOULD JUST ADD THAT THE BIGGEST POCKET IS THE BACK POCKET. THIS IS ALSO THE PADDED POCKET FOR A LAPTOP. WOULD PROBABLY FIT A LAPTOP AND A COLLEGE TEXT BOOK IN THAT ONE POCKET WITH ROOM TO SPARE. I LIKE THE LIFETIME WARRENTEE THAT JANSPORT AND ZAPPOS PROVIDES AS I HOPE THIS REALLY DOES LAST MY HUSBAND A LONG LONG TIME, IN FACT A LIFE TIME!

I bought this backpack for my daughter for college next year. My son who's already in college said that it was what all the girls carry, in different colors and patterns. It's cute, but doesn't have many special features. Specifically, I was expecting a pouch for a water bottle, and padding to protect a laptop.

Sadly, this backpack developed a tear along one of the seams of the main compartment after only four months of routine use by my school-aged daughter. That is very disappointing.

I got this item because it is super cute and was perfect for a recent trip to Disneyland (to use instead of a purse while in the park with my young son and boyfriend). I am very pleased with it. It came in 2 days as promised and it has the well known Jansport quality but in mini size. I love Zappos!

This is my second Jansport Half Pint Backpack, simply because I wanted another pattern. I use my Half Pints mostly for travel or when going on a day adventure to places I may pick things up along the way and don't want to worry about carrying anything. Although they are smaller than your average backpack they do hold a good amount of stuff. I have nothing bad to say, these guys are durable and very easy to wash. Love my Half Pints!

Wanted a backpack to match some luggage, this seemed like a good match. (color-wise). Made well but I wish I had sent it back before I used it. The only problem is the zippers: they are "covered" with an overflap, making it extremely difficult to open/close the zippers, especially on the curved sections. I need the bag for a trip, so I ended up trimming the overflap, thus allowing the zippers to move more freely. Also, the stitching is made with long stitches, should be much shorter for longer wear. Nice leather bottom but it is soft suede, no lugs on bottom - I don't think it will hold up long if put on concrete, etc. Too thin leather. Would not purchase this again. I would look for a pack with zippers not covered with a flap.

Zappos offered this backpack cheaper than another site. I was relieved to find this print -- at my local store they had the print but on a smaller version. My daughter (for whom I was buying this backpack) is thrilled with it and has reported many compliments.

This is a perfect backpack for my high school freshman. She used a Jansport Super Break (interior = 1550 cubic inches) throughout middle school, but found she needed the Jansport Big Student (2100 cubic inches) to accommodate all her extra stuff. I am very happy to find a simple, lightweight, roomy backpack from a time-trusted brand. Thanks for quick shipping, as always, Zappos!

it is a nice simple and practical bag. As far as I am concerned just the right number of pockets to keep from having to hunt for every little thing. Well constructed. The catch is that there isn't chance that the bag will survive the school year. Considering that it will hold a ton of books it will just not hold up. Especially since my son now 14 is going to treat it exactly as he should, rough and tough. Too bad it doesn't come in a stronger fabric with zippers and reinforced bottom that might get through the year.

I bought this backpack for my 13 year old grand daughter to carry to school. She wanted lots of pockets and a bigger pavk than her previous jamsport which is a simple 1 bib pocket pack. She loves this one. She said it will keep her lunch and electronics and books all sparate. And she wanted simple all black.

This is the backpack that all the cool kids have or want. My son (ninth grade) was extremely pleased by this backpack. From my perceptive it looks like every backpack that I have seen on all the kids this year.

This is a fantastic backpack. My son just started high school, and we got him the same reliable brand of backpack that we used when we were in school, many years ago! Solid, sturdy construction, great looks - I know this one will last for years. He loves it!

Great basic backpack. My 9th grade son got it and it's on the smaller side for him, but he likes it and uses it for high school. The padding on the straps seem a bit short for someone his size, he's about 5'7". I personally wish there was a water bottle pocket.

My high school daughter ordered this for her laptop. While it is a very fashionable backpack, it's very thin and does not provide any support or cushioning for her laptop. Don't get this if you're looking for a protective backpack for your computer.

This backpack is exactly what I was looking for for my 7th grader. He carries a very large binder plus lunchbox, and this is the only backpack we could find that is large enough.

Nice quality backback. Color is a lot darker that what is shown in the picture. If you a re looking for a true light beige this is not the one.
