I love JanSport. This is the 3rd I bought. The first 2 were the smaller original versions. The first lasted 10 years and I still have the 2nd. I got this Big Student one is for my son for Christmas. He loves it and it has lots of room for all his school stuff. I hoping it will be tough enough for a teenager, so far so good.

I absolutely love this bag! I have purchased many backpacks throughout the years and this one by far is the best. The bag is very spacious holding my extensive collection of binders and textbooks with room to spare. I have found that being a slender female and 5'4" many larger backpacks tend to look ridiculously huge on me. This bag does not appear overly big at all but still has enough room. There are a couple of smaller pockets for writing utensils and personal items, allowing me to keep organized. Some of the other Jansport models do not have a water bottle holder but thankfully this one does. There are many classic and trendy colors available making selecting one difficult. I would definitely recommend this backpack to high school students or anyone that carries around a lot of things. The price and quality of the Jansport Big Student is unbeatable.

My teenage son needed a new backpack because his Swiss Gear Synergy Laptop Carrying Backpack broke in different places. My son has a 17.5 inch laptop that he carries around and it was just a bit too big for the Swiss Gear backpack (which seems sturdy) and eventually the backpack just fell apart. We researched and read the reviews here in Zappos about the Big Student and decided to try it. This is our first purchase from Zappos. We live in Hawaii and have limited places where we can buy backpacks in the middle of the school year. Being able to purchase online is just wonderful. We heard about Zappos from a colleague. Our order actually took quite a few days before Zappos was able to fill and get it shipped, but it was okay and the shipping took many a couple more days than if we were in the Mainland USA. When the Big Student backpack arrived, we took it out of the box and felt very dubiously about it. The backpack looked small, like a regular backpack. My son didn't even really want to try it but I urged him to try it anyway since it was here. Lo and behold! His 17.5 inch laptop went in so effortlessly. He could even choose between the very rear compartment and the compartment in front of that to store his laptop. All of us were stunned. He then put in all of his gear and like many reviews stated here -- everything fit! The amazing thing is, after he gets all of his gear in, the backpack still does not look big; it really looks 'regular.' He is very happy with his backpack, able to go to school without having to carry anything in his hands. We got it in black, his favorite color and it looks great. With JanSports' Lifetime Warranty, how much more can one want? Thanks to Zappos! A very grateful "thank you" for the free shipping, too. Will definitely be ordering from Zappos again. Mwah!

We love this backpack! My daughter got another brand backpack to start school this year and apparently it had a plastic zipper. It broke after a few months so we had to replace her backpack. A lot of kids at school have Jansport and so that is what she wanted. My requirement was a water bottle holder on the side as we live in AZ and she brings one every day. She loves this backpack. It's roomy, we love the color and it will last her more than one year. This color was on sale so that was even better but she loves it. Only downside is that the little flap of fabric near the zipper gets caught sometimes but she's figured it out. Otherwise, it's a great buy!

When my daughter's backpack broke in the middle of the school year I checked the stores in the area to buy a new one but they only sell backpacks right before school starts, so everyone was out. To make things more difficult, my daughter wanted this brand of backpack and a specific color. Zappos was the only place I found it! I ordered it online and it came the next day. Very pleased!

My 7th grader loves this backpack. She doesn't have a locker and has to carry a lot of books, and this backpack holds them all. And she wanted extra pockets, which this has.

This backpack is a perfect fit for my son. He just started middle school this year and needed a backpack with more space without looking too bulky. This backpack is just what he wanted. It has plenty of room for his books and large binders. I always buy JanSport backpacks for their durability and quality. This one did not disappoint.

My 8th grader loved it. Searched for a backpack that was large enough for binders, homework and a lunch bag and this met her needs. One week into school and she has no complaints.

I was a bit concerned as I unpackaged the backpack, but it is quite deceiving. My daughter was able to pack all of her beginning-of-the-year school supplies into the bag with room to spare. Although the bag was packed almost to capacity, it did not appear too bulky. Sturdy construction that looks like it will hold up to the rigors of day-to-day use.

This backpack is large enough to hold everything you need, durable enough to pack it to the brim and trust that it won't burst, and has enough pockets to keep everything organized. My husband and I both own one, and we both love it. We take it on weekend trips and on vacations. I'd definitely buy another one if something happened to mine...although JanSport has a lifetime guarantee, so I probably wouldn't have to. :)
