I love Zappos and have purchased many things from this website. This is a negative review for the JanSport Big Student backpack. I bought it for my 8th grader thinking it would serve her well for at least a few years, but now, merely halfway through 8th grade the thing is falling apart. I was a bit disappointed, frankly, when it arrived and wasn't as sturdily constructed as I'd expected. Now, the zippers are broken, everything is gaping open. Honestly, it's junk. It's annoying to know that I'll have to make her finish her 8th grade year with it as is, but will have to purchase yet another backpack for high school. I thought the JanSport Big Student name brand would indicate an ability to carry a load. Well, no. It's poorly constructed and both she and I are sad about this. It was not the cheapest backpack, and to see it with broken zippers after a mere four months of use, that's not right. It's junk.

I ordered this backpack in black as a Christmas gift for my husband. He wanted a nice-sized backpack for sports and going to the gym. This is the perfect size and not too small and holds plenty of stuff. The material is sturdy and the zippers seem great so far. He's pretty rough on things but this looks as though it will last a while.

Great purchase! The bookbag is great for people who like to keep everything organized. It has a compartment for all of your school needs. I love the purple, too! Another good point is it is completely waterproof. Last week it was pouring down rain at school. My bookbag got soaked but nothing inside did! Zappos had the order to me within three days.

I ordered this backpack for a trip that my husband was going on and it was great. Lots of storage spaces and its lightweight. This backpack holds all your essentials like books, magazines, laptop, bottled water.

Brands I'd also recommend: Jan Sport is really the best brand for backpacks.

Purchased this backpack for my 4th grade girl. She LOVES the "splatter pattern" and I absolutely LOVE all the pockets to help keep her organized. I was worried that this backpack might be a little too big for her, but the handle adjustment made for a great fit!

This backpack is perfect for my 6th grader! I plan on buying the same one for my high school student. It has a place for everything... tons of books and a flute in the main compartment, gym clothes, and lunch in the medium compartment. In the front compartment: pencils, colored pencils, planner and electronics. The straps are great and my little guy does not complain about his load. It distributes the weight nicely. It's basic in coloring, which my bigger kids like. No Spiderman anymore!

This pack is the perfect size for my daughter who is a sophomore in college. It fits her laptop as well as her college textbooks. We had originally purchased a smaller size, but easily returned and exchanged for the correct sized item. We always are satisifed with Zappos customer service.

My 7th grader picked out this backpack for school this year. It is sturdy and has lots of room for all of her books. She does not have lockers at school, so ample room was necessary. Great color as well. Would definitely work for a high school student as too.

Nice and big and good looking. My son got it for fourth grade and it holds everything with plenty of room. The straps hit him in a place that doesn't feel great but he's a pretty little guy for such a big pack, so I think he will grow into it and it will feel better with time. It's light, well made, and loaded with pockets for carrying all your stuff.

Great backpack! This was the best price I could find out of all the places I looked (which was a lot!). Fast shipping too! I use this for school and it's great but if you don't need a really big backpack, then I would suggest a smaller size because this one is huge with lots of room.

Jansport Big Student - I haven't had a chance for heavy usage yet (school hasn't started) but it's super cute and looks pretty heavy-duty. The straps are padded for extra comfort if you are carrying a lot, which is great. And it fits a laptop plus books without looking ridiculously huge. I'm very happy with this bag!!

She loved it. My daughter picked out the style and pattern, she liked this particular one because of the room it has for all her books ect. School is due to start soon and she is ready. I like using Zappos because it’s so easy to find what I want, I get it quick, and if I need to return an item, the process is so easy. I am a very satisfied customer; I would highly recommend Zappos to all my family and friends.

Jansport's Big Student - Excellent backpack. My fifth grade daughter needed a big backpack for school since she can't have a rolling one. This one is perfect for her. I am also very impressed with Zappos fast shipping. The wide straps are also a big plus. It makes it so much more comfy for the kids. The black scatter color is really pretty also.

Brands I'd also recommend: adidas thongs

Incredibly pleased - I ordered this backpack on Saturday night and wasn't supposed to receive it until sometime on Tuesday. Imagine my surprise when it showed up on Monday afternoon. The bag itself is perfect but I'm even more impressed with the service.

JANSPORT BIG STUDENT - I bought this backpack for my son. He used it as his only piece of luggage for a one week trip to London. It expands nicely to accommodate a lot of stuff. Now he's using it for school and likes the area that keeps small items in place. As always, great customer service from Zappos and love the overnight delivery!

Jansport Big Student - I love this backback. It has enough room for all my books and pens and pencils and iPod and whatever else I need to carry. It was also a great deal. Thought it still only has padded fabric straps they are pretty comfy. Though stiff at first.

Brands I'd also recommend: Any jansport backpack. they last forever

The Best Backpack EVER! After reading all the reviews on this backpack I bought one for my teenage son who is very hard on backpacks. He loves the wide straps, the generous inside area, and says it is the best back pack he has ever had. I bought a little Jansport daypack thirty years ago when I was in graduate school and I still use it. This company makes backpacks that will last decades. Zappos, I am so glad you have such a wide variety of items you sell. Three cheers for Zappos!

Brands I'd also recommend: You can't find any school backpack better than this one.

I've been trying to find the right day pack for a long time. Most are too small for the amount of stuff I need to lug around. This bag is the one for me. Enough room for my stuff and it looks good too. A very durable back pack and keeps the water out on rainy days. The shoulder straps are a bit stiff at first, but eventually wear in and feel good. Well worth the money. Get it now!
