          I am a college student. This backpack really disappointed me. It is far too small for a student. I hate that hardly any Jansport backpacks only have one water bottle pocket, as this one does. I bought this a year ago and it is already falling apart with standard use. The laptop sleeve is just a thin piece of fabric with elastic at the top. It is completely shredded after just one year. Also, you need to keep your laptop in a case because the sleeve offers no protection. The padded cell phone pocket doesn't even exist. The bottom of the backpack is very thin and mine is covered in small holes that are getting worse. I will be returning this backpack to Jansport because of the lifetime warranty and I will be requesting a different style. I cannot stand this one anymore.
          This backpack might be okay if you want to carry around just a few small things and you don't need them protected. Students should definitely stay away.

              I have had this backpack almost two years and by far the best backpack i have ever owned in my life. It is very durable i have used it for a sports backpack and it holds everything well. For school its very comfortable and the size is perfect. You can fit a lot of things . I used to have 4 to 5 binders and it was good. I love this product please make more of this product.

              An honest bag

                Forget the buckles and flaps and hipster extras - this bag is perfect for the "form follows function" sort of person. You will appreciate the classic pear-shape form that looks natural and shapely on the human profile - not like a square jutting out from your back. The clean design and solid color announce itself as "I am a backpack" without distracting from your holistic style. This makes the bag look good with any outfit, at any time. If I had to describe this backpack in one word, I would choose - "architectural."

                I am a college student who takes their bookbag everywhere. It is very comfortable on my shoulders. The interior is spacious enough for a 13" Macbook, an iPad, an umbrella, and a couple of binders, with PLENTY of room to spare. My laptop charger (including the extension) and USB computer mouse fit comfortably in the "cord pocket." The organizer pocket includes a carabiner for your keys, 4 pencil slots, and three other organizer compartments, one of which is lined with a soft material for your phone.

                A notice: because the zippers are concealed, it may get caught on the placket when zipping upwards. The fabric does not get into the zipper, but rather the handle pushes up against the covering and bunches it up, causing it to get stuck. This problem goes away if you hold the zipper closer to the slider so that your thumb can push the placket out of the way as you zip upwards.

                  I bought this product when I saw it's lifetime guarantee - because to me quality is no. 1 priority. I use it in school every day and also take it to my trips in wild and city - this backpack holds all this and I believe even more. It's very lightweight and thin though it still has loads of space for all my stuff. It's weatherproof which is very useful when cycling and all on all it's good to know than your stuff is safe from the rain. Only con I could find in this backpack is it's zipper - while it's covered with a fabric it might sometimes be difficult to open/close it (though i'm not really used to it)

                      I'm a college student and purchased this backpack for this semester & I love it.
                      It's very comfortable on the straps & there's a lot of pockets.
