The story of JanSport bags and apparel begins in 1967 with three friends and their love for the outdoors. Jan Lewis, Murray Pletz and Skip Yowell lived in Seattle when they created their first framepack and the first panel loading daypack. Murray had just won a design contest for "The Best New Use of Aluminum" for the framepack the trio had fabricated in the transmission shop of Skip's uncle. Once climbers on Mount Rainier and other Northwest peaks saw the new pack, they wanted one for themselves. The rest is JanSport history.
The success of JanSport’s packs reaches across the globe and into various walks of life. For nearly 40 years, JanSport has provided world class bags and apparel that can take you anywhere and everywhere. Celebrating outdoor enthusiasts from the casual walker to the mountain climber, JanSport’s packs and apparel have got your back.
First and foremost, I love the excellent flip-top design that allows for quick and easy access to the main compartment. The outside pockets are great for small items that you might need even quicker access to, and the insulated pocket actually works well (tested it with cold drinks today). The main compartment has a small carabiner that is handy for a quick hook or release of keys. Material-wise, this backpack seems very well made. The nylon straps are nice and thick - not cheap, and the metal and leather accents are real metal and real leather. The only thing that could make this backpack better would be a slightly larger main compartment. Other than that, great design and quality materials. It looks good, too!

I am very happy with my selection of the JanSport Watchtower backpack. I always carry a large DSLR camera and it is easy to take out and put away, and I still have room for other things.

I love this backpack. The main compartment is quite roomy, even with my laptop inside, which I carry with me almost everywhere. I love the design of the backpack in person, and it is very comfortable to wear, even with heavy loads which I frequently have as a student. Overall: excellent design, excellent functionality. I am very happy with my purchase.
