Collection of Stranger Things JanSport backpacks

Backpacks From the Upside Down? Meet the New Stranger Things Collection

Charli Moore Jun 01, 2022

To celebrate the fourth season of the cult-favorite Netflix series, JanSport is thrilled to announce a new collection in partnership with ‘Stranger Things’ which allows fans to connect with their favorite characters from the series while embracing their own spirit of adventure.

Capturing a little of that ‘80s nostalgia that dominates the sci-fi street style of the ‘Upside Down’ and making it accessible in our own dimension, the collection also revives JanSport styles that were popular in 1986. Staying true to our mission, the five packs in this collection represent the story of key characters as they face new, supernatural forces as a team.


Don’t want to look like a total waistoid at the Starcourt? The Field Pack Demogorgan Hunter has one large main component for all your hangout needs. This pack features dual zippered side water bottle pockets, a dedicated padded laptop compartment that fits a 15-inch laptop, and more.


Want to join the Hellfire Club? This pack features one large main compartment with a side water bottle pocket, a padded laptop sleeve that fits a 15-inch laptop, sleek straight-cut padded shoulder straps, and comes in two equally statement shades—red and black.


Don’t find yourself unprepared when you stumble across a Demogorgan. With the Sierra Madre ‘Upside Down’ inspired pack, you can ensure you’ve got everything you need (including a slingshot) to defeat it in direct combat. The pack is reversible and features one large main component with a front pocket that is accessible from both sides.


If like Dustin, you’re planning a curiosity voyage with friends and need plenty of space for your “paddles” (books), pack up the SuperBreak® Eleven and head to the library. Made from 100% recycled polyester this retro remake of one of our favorite styles features one large main component, a side water bottle pocket, an internal padded sleeve that fits a 15-inch laptop, and oh-so-80s straight-cut padded shoulder straps.


Friends don’t lie, (right, Eleven) but they do prepare well before heading out with the Demogorgan Hunters. With one main compartment, this waistpack features a front utility pocket, wings for added comfort and support during adventures in the ‘Upside Down’, and an adjustable waist strap.

Regardless of which dimension your adventures take you to, JanSport is by your side for life.
