JanSport Logo
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.

Loved it! My 3 year old uses it for our hikes and day trips. Usually fills it with toy cars and rocks. It fits him perfectly and he’ll be able to grow into it since you can adjust the straps.

We got this for my daughter for her freshman year of high school. After four months, she started having problems with the zipper on the large section. Last night (after 5 months of use) it broke completely and now needs replacing.

They didn't give the size dimensions in the description. I was trying to order a full size backpack for my daughter for school. And I get a backpack that wouldn't even fit on my chihuahua. When my wife opened it she pulled that thing out and I thought she was joking around and that the real full size backpack was in the box. Now my daughter has to wait until I get paid again to order a real backpack. And this website says if your a rewards member you get your refund immediately, but looks like I still have to wait up to 3 weeks. Ugh! what a mess!

I LOVE this backpack (which I didn't expect myself to say of a JanSport backpack)! There is so much space and it is so decently priced. It comes with plenty of pockets, which makes flying easier. I can store important documents separate from liquids as well as other items, and pulling them out for TSA is so convenient. I carried this around with me when traveling across Japan. One downside, however, is that some fiber is coming out near the zipper area.

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.

It’s the perfect size, not to many compartment. My 14 year old boy thinks it perfect.

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.
