When you can pick any JanSport backpack, what do we choose?

The Watchtower. By far, the #1 backpack worn by JanSport staff.


Let’s start with the top: a top-load pack allows you to instantly access everything in your pack without digging to the bottom. The perfect travel backpack, this large compartment allows you to pack anything including 2-3 days of clothes.

This Watchtower laptop backpack includes a 15” laptop sleeve and a separate soft-lined tablet sleeve. Two front pockets allow you to keep your cords in one pocket and your daily essentials in the other. Keep your sunglasses and phone protected from your other gear in the soft lined lid pocket.

Going off campus? Carry a 6-pack with 4 cans in the cooler pocket and another two in the water bottle pockets.

The Original College Backpack

In 1970, students at University of Washington took our original hiking pack and turned it into the first campus backpack. A few design changes later the Right Pack was born. Functional simplicity at its best, the dependable leather bottom Right Pack is a solid choice for any college student. The main compartment has ample space for everything you need on and off campus. Featuring a 15” laptop sleeve and large front pockets it is the iconic college pack.

Check out the Right Pack DE that has a padded 15” laptop sleeve with an added tablet sleeve and cord store pockets.
