To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Absolutely love the bag! Using it for work. Lots of compartments and rather spacious at the main compartment. Love that it has a separate laptop/file compartment. Even the design is pretty despite it looking like a school bag than a work bag but who cares?! Love it!
I bought this for my 10 year old daughter who is in 4th grade. This backpack is one of the best I've purchased: well made, large capacity (holds 2 regular sized binders and lots of textbooks), has two very sturdy and padded straps that are contoured, a large padded pocket for ipad/laptop, smooth zippers, lots of small pockets, and the large H20 mesh pocket on the side. I never noticed the water bottle pocket on Amazon but that pocket is awesome! It holds her large sized water bottle without falling out! The fabric prints and colors are also very cute and bright! Would recommend.
This is such a cute backpack. I've always used Jansport and have never had a problem with them before. They've always lasted forever and held up in the washing machine really well. But sadly, that wasn't the case with this one. After one washing this weird, white paper stuffing began leaking out of it. I couldn't find the hole where it was coming out of, so I assumed I must have left some papers in the backpack by accident when I washed it. Not the case. I was extremely careful the second time, checked and rechecked every pocket thoroughly to be sure they were all empty. After the second washing, wads and wads of this weird, recycled paper stuff with old print still on it was coming out of a slot in the back of the backpack that hadn't been sewn closed. So disappointed with the cheap quality and poor manufacturing of this particular model. I'm going to try one more Jansport, and if this happens again, I'll know they've gone down the drain with quality control, and I'll move on to another brand.
This backpack seems to be made with typical JanSport durability. We will see how well it holds up in the long run. The material does not seem particularly thick or sturdy, but I think that is part of what makes it so light weight. As I use it I’m sure I will see if the durability or sturdiness was sacrificed for weight. There are a TON of pockets in this bag. Which is a pro for finding a place to put things, but occasionally a con for when you are trying to find them again 😂. I use this for a school bag and have found the narrow pocket toward the top of the bag perfect for a pencil case! I also love the pattern! My only fear was that with how light it is, it would show a lot of dirt. So far either the pattern hides it well or the material repels it. Either way I’m very happy with it.
