Can you wash a backpack?
Yes, you can wash a backpack by hand. Hand washing is key to maintaining the shape and finish of your bag, so back away from the washing machine. First, take everything out of each and every pocket of your pack before cleaning it. Then, use cool water with a soft damp cloth to wipe down the interior and exterior of your pack. Hang your pack to dry completely before you get going. Still have questions? Learn more about how to clean your Jansport here.
I don’t know how to pack a backpack. Can you help me out?
Pack a backpack with the heaviest gear on the bottom, and must-have items towards the top of your pack. Bringing your sneakers to class? Toss bulky items like shoes at the base of your backpack for safe keeping. Need an extra layer for a night out? Store must-have essentials in a zippered mesh pocket so you can just grab and go.
I don’t know how to wear a backpack. What should I do?
Wear a backpack with both straps tight on your shoulders to promote weight distribution. Plus, your bag should never hang below your waist. Another pro tip? Never bring more than you can carry. A backpack with a hip strap can be the ultimate solution to reducing strain on your back while on the move.
Lighten the load with the Far Out 65L Backpack if you’re hitting the trail. If you’re heading to the library instead, the Hatchet Backpack has a fully padded back panel and adjustable shoulder straps so you can regulate your comfort on the go. Wherever life takes you, make sure you find the perfect fit for your next adventure.
Can you decorate a backpack?
When it comes to decorating your backpack, we’ve totally got your back. Our fave place to decorate? The outside pocket is a prime location for some fun vibes. You can personalize your pack with patches and pins for the win. From cat patches to panda pins, there’s definitely a little something for everyone. Go ahead, make it your own today.
