Rated 5 out of 5 by from great back pack for High school The Zippers are heavy duty. The compartments are large enough for her to carry everything all day. Jenny goes to a busy, FULL compasity high school. She does not have time to go to a locker between classes; also being in advanced classes means more books and paper to carry. The only add on I would make would be the extra " across the collar bone" strap. This strap is a benefit to weight distribution; but sadly, Jenny would probably leave it un attached anyway>>> the bumm,, lol,, But I by this brand because the last one I bought for my son; it lasted from 7th grade thru high school and a another yr for Jenny. So its well worth the 45 dollars! Good Job!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Plenty of room. Nice gray color for business as well as personal meetings. I bought this to replace a backpack of several years that was worn, which was also made by Jansport, but for a specific, different store. This time, I bought the backback specifically made by Jansport outright. I'm happy with it because it is spacious, and has five, zippered compartments to hold all my items. I use it to carry a variety of items -- too many items to actually list here. This is for business, work and personal purposes, not as a student backpack. I like the color, gray, which I swapped for a new, black one I bought the day before, because my previous, old and worn backpack had been black, and I decided I wanted a change of pace with a different color. I bring the backpack with me to business meetings as well as casual get togethers, and when I am out alone, too, including driving and riding a bicycle. This backpack does NOT have a specific place to hold a laptop, which is actually what I wanted, because on the rare occasions I carry a laptop, I carry it in a separate bag. The material is durable; the quality of the zippers is good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The perfect backpack I have two of these. The first one is older than I am, circa 1985, in a horrible teal color. I used it for a while when my cheap backpack broke one week into school. When a zipper jammed, I called JanSport to see if they could send me a replacement zipper. The did me one better: they sent me a box to ship it to them, fixed the zipper, seamed a couple of tears, and sent it back. When I wanted a better looking one, I bought a cute rainbow and animal print backpack that has so far survived a year of 40 pounds of books and papers. JanSport knows how to make a backpack, and how to treat their customers!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Backpack! First time buying a JanSport :) Bought it for my daughter who started 6th grade and needed a bigger backpack that wasn't so heavy. She loves it and the color. I've read great reviews and when I found out there is a lifetime warranty I said why not! The only thing I wish it had was a pocket on each side. There is only one which does fit a water bottle perfectly. The only reason is because on our older backpack the netting tore and had a big hole it in which was from stuffing it in a tight locker. So we were able to just use the other side pocket because nothing else was wrong with it. Thankfully the lockers are bigger this year and my daughter is being extra careful because she likes it that much. I would recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Only backpack to buy for school! I bought one of these for my son when he started middle school. It lasted all 3 years. He still has it but it's time to retire it. It finally started to mess up in 8th grade. One backpack? 3 years? You can't beat that!My son is hard on everything and backpacks are no exception. When I bought it, I thought that if it lasted one year it would be worth it, but to pay $45 and have it last 3 years was worth it. I'm now looking for a backpack to last through high school. Jansport has different levels of quality and the Big Student is the only one I will buy for my children from now on out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lifetime Guarantee! I already knew this was a proven brand, but I was thrilled to find out there is a lifetime guarantee on the backpack! One of my children has been using his Jansport since 11th grade and is now in his sophomore year of college, so I know it holds up well. The straps are a bit stiff at purchase, but have softened up with some gentle "massaging" to get ready for the first day of school.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The brand she wanted Jansport was a very popular brand when I was in high school. It appears to have come back in style for the kids. Both my girls wanted them. Which I am happy about as my experience with JanSport backpacks are that they are durable and hold up to the test of time and heavy books. I was quite pleased when we went to Dicks and saw the great price on them.
