          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.

                        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

                            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.
