          Although it is more expensive in the short run than other backpacks, its durability exceeds the cost.

          LOVE IT

          By Kate

          from Lumberton, NC

          Comments about JanSport BIG STUDENT:

          I love all of the pockets that this booksack offers. Mine is stuffed to the max and the booksack is still comfortable. I do wish that maybe Jansport would come out with a bag a little bit bigger.

            Comments about JanSport BIG STUDENT:

            I got this product for high school and have found that it is uncomfortable and makes my back hurt. I do not overfill it, but it has an ugly saggy look. The colors are good, and there is always extra room, but everything in it always gets bent b/c it sags so much. Also, books always get destroyed because there is not small pouch that is big enough for books. there is a thing to attach keys to, which is very helpful. I got it because I wanted something big to fit all my stuff in, but what I have discovered, is that it doesn't look right, and has destroyed my posture. I would advise all to stay as far away from this backpack as possible.

              THIS BAG IS GREAT! MY 12 YEAR OLD CHOSE THIS ONE AND SHE LOVES IT. SHE CAN PUT ALL OF HER THINGS FOR SCHOOL IN HERE AND STILL HAS ROOM FOR EXTRAS. WITH THE WARRANTY OFFERED AND THE WAY IT'S BUILT, IT'S A MONEY SAVER TOO.

                  As usual, I was pleased my purchase. Good quality bookbag with a reasonable price. Bright colors inside the bookbag and a really pretty design. My daughter loved it. She will have plenty of room for her school supplies in bookbag.

                    I use this backpack for traveling to work I have worked at my job for 7 years with the same backpack. I carry my breakfast and lunch, my nook, and a lot of other odds and ends. When it rains (and it really rains in Oregon)nothing in my bag gets wet. I love it. I just bought a new one only because I spilled my coffee inside my bag so I want a back up while wash my old bag. Thanks JanSport for making the best big student backpack. You don't have to be a student to put this bag to good use.

                        I am a college student and this is my first time using a jansport backpack. I went with the Big Student since I am carrying 3-4 textbooks and my laptop on a daily basis. Even after having textbooks and my laptop in the backpack, I still have plenty of room for my lunch or any extras I may have.
                        This is DEFINITELY a bag I would recommend!
                        I got the Vivid Purple, and the color is GORGEOUS! I am super happy with this bag. It met all of my expectations!

                          This is the best backpack I've ever had. I'm a full time college student taking at LEAST 5 classes each semester. All 5 binders, all 5 (to 8) books, pencil pouch, laptop, water, snacks, notecards, all my cords and chargers, and even my gym shoes fit into this pack. Everything has a place and I can carry it all with comfort because of the AWESOME straps. I love all the space for organization because I hate trying to carry EVERYTHING in one big pocket. The only way to make it better would be to add an engine and wheels so I could drive it:)

                              I bought this backpack before my senior year of high school, and it's easily the best one I've ever owned. I'm dual enrolled, and constantly running back and forth between the community college and my high school hasn't made it very easy for me to utilize my locker. I live out of this backpack. Last semester, it easily held 3 of my 1 1/2 in. binders, 3 textbooks, and several folders, and I also had plenty of room for pens, pencils, things like tissues and Band-Aids, and my calculator. Aside from a tiny loose thread on the bottom and lots of dirt and pencil marks (mostly due to my tendency to throw it in the back of my car aimlessly, or carelessly toss in pencils and uncapped pens) it is in great shape. I'll be purchasing another one next year (though perhaps a darker color) for college.
