Awesome bag! There's plenty of room in this backpack, it's great quality, and fast shipping! We needed a bag mid school year and shopped all over with no luck. We got on Zappos and right away found this one. Thanks Zappos!

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.

Great backpack! Very roomy for a busy high school student's life. Holds a lot of weight and is very resilient. The straps are cushioned well enough making it comfortable on the shoulders!

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.

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.

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!

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!

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!

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.

It has padding on the back side so when hanging it, the sharp corners of books or stuff does not hurt your back. Big Student previously did not have that. Good addition. Extra pocket too.

High quality book bag but the color is not Navy it is virtually black. If your school has a strict code, as my son's did, this was not in compliance for color.

Love this backpack. My kindergarten son is using it. It's lightweight, has enough compartments and can fit much more than he needs to carry but I prefer that to having to jam things into a just-big-enough bag. Also it's shorter than other bags I tried for him, so it looks smaller and more age appropriate even though its a full size bag. (Kid size bags were not roomy enough, of course this bag would obviously fit adults just fine.)

This is a GREAT backpack! I have three of these, one for my nine-year old and two for my six-year olds. This is the second year for my daughter and the backpack still looks brand new. There are two large zippered pockets in the back, we use one for wet winter stuff and the other one for folders and lunch sacks. There is another small pocket to hold shoes and a few other spots for stashing small items. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Zappos for having demonstration video's because it helped make my decision so much easier. LOVE YOU ZAPPOS!! XOXO

Brands I'd also recommend: JanSport, Patagonia

I bought this for my daughter to take overseas when she studied abroad. It had lots and lots of space and worked out very well. She used it as her personal item on the airplane and as a weekend bag during her stay overseas.

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!
