        I talked my daughter into getting one for this school year. When it arrived she loved it. She loves the colors, size, lightness, organizers and everything about it. This was a great choice.

            I've been using this styles of backpack since the 6th grade and they last a long time and give you plenty of space for all your items without having to squeeze everything in. The backpacks have never broke on me but every once in a while the zipper gets alittle stuck but this is definitely a bag worth buying

            Great backpack for 6th grader

            Everyone says in the reviews that i have read that it's not great if you don't have a lot of stuff to put into it, but i used this backpack last year and i put a couple of small novels, a lunch box, and a folder in it everyday and it was not feeling too un-filled/too little things. Overall, great backpack and i am going to order one this year!

              I've bought a new big student every year since 5th grade, and now I'm going into 10th and looking for a new one. The only problems I've had, is that in 8th grade, one of the zippers on the backpack got stuck, and I had to deal with it for the rest of the year. In middle school, it was probably a bit too big, but I loved how easy I was able to organize things. Now, in high school, all of the space is actually used. So, I do recommend this if you need the extra space.

                  I got this backpack in berrylicious purple and it is gorgeous. The color is so pretty and also this backpack has a lot of room and compartments. I was looking for a durable backpack for high school and college and I found one!! Definitely would purchase another one.

                      I love my Jansport! it is older than I am! first it was my dads, but then he gave it to me, I've used other brands and they just wont hold all my school supplies, the fall apart after a few days, they are poorly made; overall just poor quality.

                          I got this backpack for my rising sixth grader, and she loves it. The size is just right to fit everything in her bag, it's super durable, and it's the cutest backpack she has had in a while. Last year, we bought the original Jansport, which held up very nicely for fifth grade. Now, she can't wait for school so she can show off her new bag. :)

                            I have tried using the Big Student backpack twice with sad results. In sixth grade I had used a purple/blue plaid Big Student backpack. Halfway through the year one of the straps broke. I was walking home from school and nearly fell over because of it. Then had to carry it in my arms until I reached my home. The next year I decided to give another brand on backpack a try. In eight grade I gave Jansport another chance. I purchased a grey Big Student backpack. Towards the end of the year the zippers on the main compartment jammed leaving my backpack useless and all my textbooks and homework trapped inside. Fortunately my friend was able to pry open the bag. But the backpack was deemed unusable because of its sad excuse of a zipper. This year I am hoping the next backpack I choose will have better results in quality and durability.

                              I am an IB student, therefore, I have a lot of things to carry. I bought this backpack so that I'd have enough room to carry everything. It was great for fitting all the heavy textbooks, and supplies. However, I started to put way too many things into it, and it became way too big and bulky. I think you should get this backpack if you really need all that room, and your old backpack is literally tearing at the seam. If not, then I'd recommend going for something smaller, like the Superbreak.
