          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.

                      Great, but one major flaw

                      Comments about JanSport BIG STUDENT:

                      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. :)

                            What a great backpack! I purchased this, and it fit everything I needed, plus more! It has a small pocket for your phone, and trust me, I lost my phone many times in my old backpack, and it's amazing! It's comfortable, but don't fill it to the brim, or it gets very uncomfortable. But it is an amazing backpack, and I highly recommend it!

                                I just bought this backpack for my eighth grade year and I can't wait to start the school year! I carry a lot of stuff, and this backpack fits my needs perfectly! I ordered mine online and it was even more stylish than I thought it would be! It even feels comfortable on my back! I've never had a backpack as great as this one, and I'm planning on using it for the next couple years and then buying another one after that!

                                  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.
