JanSport’s goal is to design, engineer, manufacture and market products that will help you get from point A to point B in the most functional way possible. Consistently incorporating flexibility and functionality into their bag designs, JanSport understands that the backpack you use during the day to carry your books could very well be the same backpack you take hiking with you on the weekends.

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.

Have had this backpack for over a year now and it’s still going strong! Great quality and construction. The material is a bit on the “stiffer” side, but love it!! These are the only backpacks I buy for my kids!

I purchased this bag to use instead of a purse. I found the straps to be a bit uncomfortable on my neck - which was the only real negative, but it's a big one. The size just right for my purpose- carry the essentials without a lot of bulk. I am still deciding if I will keep this or not due to the straps .

This thing is too little!!! I thought this was a regular sized bookbag. This thing is fit for my daughter's American Girl doll. They should state that it's a miniature sized bookbag.

This little bag is 5 star cute but it won't hold a Samsung S7. Just a little too small. Sadly had to return.

I REALLLLLLLLY wanted this to be amazing! The style WAS amazing! I'm such a sucker for zipper details. This fannypack is neutral with the zing of the gold zippers!! BUT..... it's soooooooo tiny. I could barely get by iPhone Plus in it. JanSport, make this baby a little bigger and I'll be back to buy!!

Great backpack: Feels lightweight and comfortable (even when filled with laptop, binder, water bottle, etc). Lots of practical organizational compartments. Nice fabric - durable without looking industrial. Fits a ton of stuff, but doesn't overwhelm a small frame (petite 5'2). And the price is very reasonable! FYI: The laptop sleeve isn't super padded, so you'll probably still need a protective case if your laptop is very fragile.

We were looking for a backpack that met three criteria for my middle-schooler: maximum volume, comfort while carrying a full backpack, and style. This backpack can hold more than you would expect, which is a plus. Style-wise, it's very basic, though well-made. Comfort is low: the straps are padded, but there's no padding on the back. We did not keep, though it may work for others.

I ordered this for my popcorn loving 4 year old to take his lunch to preschool in. It just arrived today and seems like great quality. I removed the sewn on “Jansport” patch easily with nail cutting scissors and it’s even cuter now.

I bought this pack for a camping road trip. I was looking for something with good storage capacity, organization and comfort for day hiking. These are things I really like about the pack after testing it out: 1. It is very spacious and has side tie-downs to limit the size of the pack when not full. 2. It has two water bottle compartments, although they aren't easy to access when the pack is on. 3. Adjustable chest strap and optional waist strap. I chose not to use the waist strap and found it comfortable to wear the pack with the strap secured behind me. 4. Good organization in the front compartment. I can easily access my phone, wallet, sunscreen, etc. with the pockets and mesh zippered pocket. There are also zipper pockets in the top and very front the pack. A few things I don't like about this pack: 1. The side tie-down straps inhibit the ability to open the front zipper pocket because the zipper on both sides is below these tie-down straps. 2. The shoulder straps are almost too wide (or too close together) at the very top and rub slightly against my neck. This is dissipated if the pack is quite full since it pulls the straps out away from the body.

My daughter loves her new school pack! She picked the print, and likes all compartment spaces and water bottle holder! She likes it so much she got the matching lunch box.

This backpack is trendy for high schoolers. It’s not super thick or sturdy; but for the price, it’s fine. My son really likes it.
