The kids of the ‘90s had it made. Britney Spears, Justin Timberlake, Christina Aguilera, and Ryan Gosling were lighting up TV screens, Harry Potter made his literary debut, and Destiny’s Child hit the charts for the first time. (You just had to pray that your cassette player didn’t run out of battery power!)
Missed out on the fun? Never fear: Our new backpacks will give you a taste. We’ve honed the decade’s awesome influences to bring new life to our favorite retro designs. (It seemed only right, as one of our most beloved backpacks was actually created in the ‘90s!) Get ready to meet our Heritage Collection.
The Right Pack: A Stylish, Versatile Backpack
From its inception on the snow-capped peak of Mount Rainier, the iconic JanSport pack has evolved from a humble hiking pack into a durable and versatile campus daypack. Often imitated but never equaled, our iconic Right Pack hit the scene in 1990—and now it’s available in four legacy colors: black, navy, oyster, and English mustard. The signature suede leather bottom and luxe suede upper make the bag feel extra sophisticated. And an internal 15-inch laptop sleeve and front organizer pocket will keep your things in check, while padded shoulder straps spread weight evenly across your shoulders for a comfy ride. Looks like you just leveled up.
The Weekender Suede: The Ideal Companion for Adventures
Take only what you need on your adventures with the Weekender Suede crossbody bag. Stash your essentials in this classic sidekick and travel light without compromising on style. The bag has a main compartment for valuables like keys and your phone, as well as an exterior pocket for accessories.
The Fifth Avenue Suede: Perfect for Essentials
Whether you’re headed to class or just taking a walk in the park, stash your phone, ID, cash, and of course, lip balm, within close reach inside our epic Fifth Avenue Suede fanny pack. The easily adjustable strap means you can sling it over your shoulder—or wear it around your waist, like the cool kids used to back in the ‘90s.
And remember: Since JanSport was created in 1967, our mission has expanded from helping adventurers celebrate the outdoors to protecting the environment for future generations to enjoy. Today, we’re working hard to reduce the carbon footprint and increase the sustainability of everything we do. That’s why our durable and hardwearing JanSport packs are made using recycled polyester.
