👍 Reasons to Buy

  • Covered by a great lifetime warranty.
  • Offers lots of organization. You can pack a lot of things in this bag and keep them organized during travels.
  • Comfortable to use even for longer periods of time because of the great back padding and ergonomic S-Curve shoulder straps.
  • Great price point.

🤔 Things to Consider

  • The materials feel a bit flimsy according to some reviewers.
  • Some reviewers said that this was more of a " downgrade" than an "upgrade" to the older version.
  • The water bottle compartments are a bit small.

💬 Reviewers Have Said

  • "I love how large, versatile, and convenient this is. I use it every day at work (I’m a professor) but also for travel. You can fit a computer, a textbook, snacks, plus packing for a weekend away. It fits really nicely on the back—super comfortable even when loaded down, and so light it doesn’t add to the weight."
  • "This backpack is sooooooo much lighter weight than my NorthFace! This backpack saved me from having to get a rolling suitcase backpack lol. I’m in nursing school and we have soooo many books and papers and until I got this backpack I was experiencing lower back pain with the NorthFace. This Jansport has saved my back. Also, lots of awesome little pockets to put stuff in and two drink holders. I put a water bottle in one and the other a coffee/tea bottle. Love it."
  • I use this as my range bag for my pistols and it's perfect. Holds everything I need and even keeps paper targets tucked safely away behind padding in the laptop pouch. Side-note, I stalked this thing for a year as it was "out of stock" and scooped it as SOON as it was available again because the lifetime warranty means great value for your money!"
