Best Uses

    Comments about JanSport ENVOY:

    USE: graduate school: ***17" laptop***, cords, several large binders and very heavy binders, 4-7 books at any given time, lunch (& sometimes dinner), water bottle(s), pencils/pens/eraser/pencil aka mini-office box, calculator, makeup and hairbrush, wallet, random other things like umbrella-sweatshirt-etc. A lot of walking demanding a comfortable fit. Also-grocery shopping!

    WHATS SO GREAT: Uhm, everything! Fits my 17" laptop with no problem at all (even though it indicates sized for 15"). Weight of pack itself: deceivably lightweight (looks heavier in picture)...and that's a good thing, compact size especially given massive storage capacity, obviously forever-lasting and durable, padded back (fabric between back panel and first interior panel. (Kind of like a NYC apartment - you'd be amazed what you can get in a small space without making a place look cramped!) Well, is GREAT everything except...

    NOT SO GREAT: ***ONLY ONE THING***, and this is with regard to the laptop "compartment". If that's not your focus/concern, stop here and buy this terrific product and yet more Jansport perfection. If your priority may be your lap top, here's something to consider. Really wanted a pack JUST LIKE this one - where laptop would slip in to a padded pocket/slip parallel to my back - without going all the way down to the bottom of the pack (here, described in ad as "compartment"), yet still with tons of space for textbooks, binders and spirals that naturally ruin most backpacks. Also didn't want a ginormous backpack. SO----Although well-padded against my back - exactly where I carry my laptop - the computer slides to bottom of pack rather than sliding in to a separate pocket with a bit higher-up bottom than the actual bottom of the backpack. Thus, the laptop is more vulnerable to damage anytime I would put the pack down (e.g. classroom, subway, car, bumping in to walls, etc...) - and that's many times a day. Tried to talk myself in to it - it really is that great - "I'll be careful with it" but I know better than that. Tried out the other pockets in this model and all would definitely fit the 17" (or any other laptop, thick or thin, for that matter). But without pocketed padding I can't figure out a safe way to use it. My 10-year-old Jansport (they mean it when they say these things last forever) has exactly the interior pocket I'm describing, and several other Jansports online this site do have what I'm describing (so definitely try out a few if one is not quite right). Will watch for other colors in a couple other models and - gasp - be patient. But that's OK, because the only reason I wanted a new pack was for a change of pace...my current 10 year old, practically EVERY day use is still in fabulous condition. Will also watch for other alternatives to protect the laptop and re-purchase this backpack if I can figure out how to make it work. AND!!! CALL JANSPORT CUSTOMER SERVICE DIRECTLY - they have been WONDERFUL with helping me to find what is as close to possible as what I'm looking for (from style, needs and even understanding me being picky about color and price range). THANK YOU JANSPORT - AS ALWAYS, FAB PRODUCTS.
