        lasted about one month before the shoulder strap broke. previous backpacks from other companies lasted years.

        I bought mine in 7th grade, i am now a freshmen in college. My backpack has became my best friend. It has gone to Boston, Chocgo, and up and down the whole east cost. It was easy to clean the sand out of it witch was a plus, for i still use it for all my school books. i find that the backpack is very durable too. it has been in the snow, wind, ran, and barn with me and still no damage. Now that I am in college, I found the down side of the backpack it doesn't have a laptop carpenter. so if you are looking for a assome back you have found it long as you don't need to carry a laptop.

          My 12-year-old son carries a lot of books in his back pack, and we are constantly buying new ones... I finally decided we should splurge and get a good one. As a kid and college student I used Jansports, and they lasted a very long time, so naturally, that's where I turned. My son chose from the many colors and designs, we had it ordered within a short period of time, and it arrived promptly! Best of all, I'm pretty sure this one I bought for my son cost less than the last one I bought twenty years ago!!!

          We've only been using it a couple weeks, but it's obvious it's a great product. I think it's a good sized back pack, though my son says it could be bigger (keep in mind he loves books and drags many of them everywhere). We like the different compartments to help stay organized, and the bottle holder on the side is deep enough the bottle doesn't fall out.

          The next time I need a new back pack, I won't even consider going somewhere else.

              I ordered this backpack in 5th grade, 7th grade, and i'm ordering it again this year in 9th grade. just note that the color looks brighter in person than online.

                  I am a advanced middle school student that gets a lot of homework and my bag fills. I also walk a mile home each day. The straps never hurt my shoulders with all my stuff on my walk home. I have so much room to fit everything, have a place for water, and a great pocket for my Electronics. It has everything I need!!!

                    Comments about JanSport BIG STUDENT:

                    I'm a high school student, and since I have to carry notebooks, binders, and my laptop, I was drawn to the Big Student by its size. Though the shape of the backpack looked a little square in person, in reality it can fit everything I need! The amount of room there is and the different compartments are good for organizing my different supplies. However, one of the biggest concerns I have with this backpack is the stiff straps! After trying on the backpack and adjusting the strap size, the straps themselves are so heavily padded that they hurt! I'm rather petite, so many that's why, but what I did to try and loosen them was fill it with all my supplies then hang both straps on the back of a chair. This method has helped a bit, and I'm sure with more use they will loosen. Another small concern was the color...the Viking Red is a little lighter than the pictures, but oh well. Overall, not a bad backpack!

                          Both of my sons use these for school. We have tried various satchels and backpacks over the years but these are the best - by far. There really is loads of space for books, sports kit and ingredients for cookery lessons, plenty of pockets and sections so it isn't all jumbled up together. The zips don't break or the backpack get holes, despite lots of daily wear and tear. They are very comfortable to wear, which is important, as the boys have quite a long walk to school. Real value for money as the only reason you will need to buy a new one is because you want a new design - and there are plenty of them too. A well-made, well designed, reasonably priced product.

                          This was the perfect backpack for me; the size was perfect, and I love all the pockets that fit all my books in both middle school and high school. I used (& abused) this backpack for 2 or 3 years. The only bad thing is that one of the zippers got stuck on the fabric and ultimately got ripped of the zipper track when I tried to fix it, rendering on pocket with only one zipper (as opposed to two). While this may not seem like a terrible situation, the zippers continue to get stuck on the fabric, and they are not easy to detach. When one gets stuck you cannot use that pocket until you have fixed the zipper. After dealing with this zipper problem for about 6 months (until the end of the school year) I decided I was going to try a different brand.

                            I bought this backpack last year for school and it had the usual things in it that a person usually needs for school. (Ex: 1 textbook, 2 large binders, pencil case.) It was GREAT for the first half of the year and then all of the sudden one of the straps snapped in half. It also started getting very worn out and dirty throughout the year. Those are the only problems so other that that, great product. :)
