    Disappointed in JanSport

        I thought this would be a great book bag because it had the laptop compartment and I would not have tote 2 bags around campus. Within the first week of classes my book bag strap started to tear off. I have used JanSport products for years and never been disappointed until now.

          I purchased this backpack on 12/17/2013 for my middle school aged daughter. On 1/9/2014, she told me that one of the straps fell off. Upon inspection it seems that the stitching was woefully inadequate, as there is no signs that the strap was ripped off. After reading the other posts, I took another look at the top strap and it too is showing signs that it is coming loose also.

              the bag itself is very nice.. but i think they should put a flexible strap inside the side compartment for laptop i have already damage 2 laptops when i forgot to zip the side compartment for laptops when i was in a hurry.. im thinking of putting a flexible strap inside the side compartment myself for my laptop to secure whenever i forgot to zip the side compartment.

                    I use this everyday for school and I absolutely love it! The laptop compartment holds my large laptop so it won't get bumped by my books and lunch bag throughout the day and there are so many compartments throughout for pens/pencils and other misc. items. I would highly recommend this bag and any other Jansport bag because they last for years without breaking or tearing! :)

                      I have never bought a Jansport backpack because I felt like the quality wasn't there but then I read all these amazing reviews and thought I'd give it a try and I was excited. At first I loved it because it felt so lightweight and comfortable compared to other backpacks. However, today the strap tore off...it's been less than three weeks! I don't even load it up. I usually only carry two textbooks, agenda, and a notebook. On occasion I carry my laptop as well which I can't fit in the laptop compartment because it's 17" but I was aware it wouldn't fit. I don't even use it all week, I only have classes three days a week so I've literally used this backpack 8 times. I wasn't able to return it and I realize Jansport had a warranty but unfortunately I can't afford to ship it out for a couple of weeks (college problems) and even if I could, what am I supposed to do while it's getting repaired. Eventually I'll ship it out so my money doesn't literally go in the trash but until then I don't even know what I'll do. I was really hoping to have the same great experience everyone else has had.

                          I was contacted by Jansport due to the poor rating I posted, about the same time I called the warranty dept.

                          Jansport replace the faulty bag with a new one that arrived the next day. So far so good, and my 9 y.o. is very happy to have the pack she wanted all along.

                          I am hoping, and so far it appears that the first pack was a faulty one. The new one is performing as expected.

                          Also, I was very well treated by the web sales team and the people who monitor reviews. The warranty dept. just passed me on to web sales and didn't get engaged. The other groups we polite, responsive, understanding, and willing to do whatever it took to make us happy. One cannot ask for more.

                          I would give 5 stars if it were not for the first pack. Something was not right in QC with two stitches falling apart so shortly in one pack.

                            My 4th grader daughter fell in love with this pack. I was thrilled. Jansport was my backpack when I went to high school and university. Everyone had one and they were indestructible. That was then.

                            This pack lasted a total of 9 school days from the day it was unpacked. The shoulder strap connection in the bottom (sewn in) came off, rendering it useless. The carry hook on top is fraying and is about to come off from one side.

                            I am contacting warranty support. Not sure if I would care to take another chance, or go with the many other younger, high quality brands like North Face, Marmot, Arc'teryx, REI.

                            I really wanted this to work out, but for now, it is a huge dud.

                                The product is nice design and durable. The only thing I would recommend that you would lower the price or have coupons.
