          Comments about JanSport HOUSTON:

          I bought this backpack in light blue for school use. I'm a high school senior and hoping to use it throughout college as well. I find the price reasonable and I am very satisfied with the quality of the bag. I havent had it long so I'm not sure about durability yet, but the material seems good and well put-together. The color is just as shown, if anything just a bit brighter, and I really like it. If I had anything to complain about, it would be that the straps are pretty narrow, and I like big wide straps.

            I love this bag but the cotton canvas outside picks up so much lint! I bought the bag in black so all the lint is completely visible. Yes there is a padded pocket inside for tech items like a laptop and a tablet but the bottom of the bag is not padded.. This is a huge problem because every time i sit a my desk i have to gently place my bag on the floor extra carefully unless i want to easily drop my laptop on the one layer of leather thats between my computer and tile floor. The straps on this bag has simple cushion like the original Jansport backpack so it still feels cheap.

                When spending money on things I look for two things: good quality and a good price. This bag has both. You will not find a better bag for this price anywhere. This bag even distributes the weight of anything I decide to throw in it. I have never had such an amazing experience with a book bag before and when I look into getting hiking gear for next summer I will be back for another Jansport bag. I use this bag mainly for school or skate trips and it is a very reliable, stylish, and sturdy pack. No complaints whatsoever.

                    The adjustable straps are perfect. The excess length can be hooked easily around the buckles to create a decent chest strap.

                    Not really an issue but the strap side of my pack is black not green, which I prefer but others might not.
