Discover JanSport

Our Company

We’re the original. JanSport started making packs and outdoor gear back in 1967. We're about the journey, the discovery of fun, freedom, and adventure.

That’s what inspired our three founders to do something different with their lives—design a better pack that was truly innovative and build a company around it. Now, more than forty years later, the journey and the adventure you find along the way is still what drives us and everything we engineer.

We design and make world-class products. For everyone. Everywhere. As global citizens, we hold ourselves and our business partners to the highest standards. We’re dedicated to safe, ethical, and lawful manufacturing and adhere to the Fair Labor Association code of conduct. To learn more about the Fair Labor Association, click here.

At JanSport, we continue to innovate and build functional gear that fits you and your life—and inspires your journey.

Our Product

We make packs and outdoor gear to equip you for adventure. The kind that happens every day.

We design our products to be durable, functional, and versatile. Whether you’re headed to a concert, to class, or going off the grid—we’ve got your pack. It’s what we’ve been doing for over forty years.

All of our packs come with a lifetime warranty. Because good stuff should last. Ours does, or we fix it. No questions asked.

JanSport is with you for life.

Our Promise

In keeping faithful to our founding vision while evolving with the times, JanSport has cultivated successful partnerships with individuals and organizations. These partnerships are mutually beneficial and assure greater results for all. Though the great outdoors is our core foundation, it has changed substantially in the last forty years. So, we celebrate all definitions of the 'great outdoors', from the reserved wilderness to city and state recreational parks. And we celebrate all outdoor enthusiasts, from those who scale peaks to those who take casual walks through Central Park.
