          I got this backpack for my rising sixth grader, and she loves it. The size is just right to fit everything in her bag, it's super durable, and it's the cutest backpack she has had in a while. Last year, we bought the original Jansport, which held up very nicely for fifth grade. Now, she can't wait for school so she can show off her new bag. :)

            I have tried using the Big Student backpack twice with sad results. In sixth grade I had used a purple/blue plaid Big Student backpack. Halfway through the year one of the straps broke. I was walking home from school and nearly fell over because of it. Then had to carry it in my arms until I reached my home. The next year I decided to give another brand on backpack a try. In eight grade I gave Jansport another chance. I purchased a grey Big Student backpack. Towards the end of the year the zippers on the main compartment jammed leaving my backpack useless and all my textbooks and homework trapped inside. Fortunately my friend was able to pry open the bag. But the backpack was deemed unusable because of its sad excuse of a zipper. This year I am hoping the next backpack I choose will have better results in quality and durability.

              Comments about JanSport BIG STUDENT:

              I am an IB student, therefore, I have a lot of things to carry. I bought this backpack so that I'd have enough room to carry everything. It was great for fitting all the heavy textbooks, and supplies. However, I started to put way too many things into it, and it became way too big and bulky. I think you should get this backpack if you really need all that room, and your old backpack is literally tearing at the seam. If not, then I'd recommend going for something smaller, like the Superbreak.

                    this backpack is great it has lots of room for books and bags but the colour i ordered was coral dusk and was in the picture it looked a light coral and when it arrived i was eager to open the package and get all excited for school. but when i opened the package i saw a red backpack and immediately thought they sent me the wrong one but when i looked at the tag it had said coral dusk. i will probably be exchanging this for a different colour.

                    I have had one of these bags for 4 years and they last a long time. They are great for middle and high school when you need a durible bag that will hold lots of stuff. And if they get dirty you can throw them in the wash with no problem. They also are great on shoulders if your bag is heavy.

                      I had a jansport when I was younger and loved it, but I grew out of the pink backpack. Now, as a rising sophomore, I gave my jansport to a friend and got my own in a new color. I look forward to finishing out college using this pack. In between the time I had the pink one and this new backpack, I used a backpack from another large retailer, and it didn't suffice. It did not hold all of my things, and any extra books, clothes, or a lunch was out of the question. I know for a fact that this backpack will hold even more than what I carry. Plus, $45 for a wonderful backpack, or pay 20-50 dollars more for a backpack that won't even hold all of the necessary things for everyday school life. All in all, I love it.

                          I have had the same Big Student backpack since I was in 2nd grade. I'm in 9th grade now, and there is no sign of wear whatsoever. In 8th grade, I was sent home with lots of homework. I love this book bag, and I definitely plan on coming back this year for a new one!

                          I used this bookbag for my 7th grade year, and I'll be using it again for my 8th grade year. The bookbag was amazing when it came to my endless nights of homework!
