Since 1967, Jansport has been working hard to create the very best backpacks possible! It began with a problem -  kids struggling to carry their schoolbooks in their hands or tucked under their arms. The first Jansport school bag was created to solve this problem, as it was a much more practical way of transporting your school supplies to and fro. Not only did this newly invented Jansport make it easier to carry books but it also kept students books dry. Ever since, Jansport bags have been a massive hit amongst school and college students. Jansport bags have now become synonymous with school bags. It’s signature design makes it easy to spot in the crowd, with kids and teens labelling it as a cool and socially acceptable bag to wear out. They are also designed for durability, meaning it’ll last your child many years. Thus, this bag is an eco-friendly option and is worth every cent. No more replacing your child’s school bag each time a new term rolls around! After the success of their original Jansport Backpack, they decided to branch into bum bags/hip packs and crossbody bags. These are perfect for everyday wear, giving off a casual, urban vibe. Every bag comes with a lifetime warranty, meaning you are pretty much covered for the entire lifetime of the product!

Which Jansport Backpack should I get?

If you are a student or young adult, the Jansport Superbreak Plus Backpack is a great option, largely due to its 15” Laptop sleeve. These days, more and more kids require tech at school so this sleeve is a must. This internal sleeve is also padded, protecting your laptop from any dings or scratches when on the go. It also has a side water bottle pocket, which is perfect for staying hydrated throughout the day. The main compartment is large enough to fit your books and lunch, whilst the padded shoulder straps and padded back panel makes it comfortable for those that commute via foot or bike.  It is also made partially from recycled materials, making it an appropriate choice for an eco-warrior. Another ideal choice for a student or young adult is the Jansport Right Pack II. Like the Superbreak Plus, this bag also has a padded 15” laptop sleeve. It is equipped with a spacious main compartment for all your daily gear, as well as comfortable shoulder straps for commuting. The biggest difference is the design of this bag, which features a suede leather bottom and suede ties attached to the zippers. This is an awesome backpack for those who want to be a little more stylish day to day. If being environmentally friendly is of the utmost importance to you, then you’ll want to opt for the Jansport Recycled Superbreak Backpack, as it is made entirely of recycled polyester. If you are after a cute, more feminine backpack, check out the Half Pint. This backpack is sweet in stature, designed to be around half the size of the original Jansport backpacks. This style of bag is more suited to small adventures outside of school or work, with style being the main selling point.
