The Jansport Big Student Backpack is the go-to pack for serious studiers.

The Jansport Big Student Backpack keeps you rollin' with old-school flavor and a refreshingly simple design. With two main compartments, this bookbag has plenty of room to separate your theory of evolution and creationism textbooks. S-curved shoulder straps won't chafe your shoulder blades as you power walk across campus, and the fully padded back panel protects your spine from Moby Dick. Stash your pens, pencils, and gum in the top zippered accessory pocket for quick retrieval. The front pocket organizers handily stash your cell phone and calcumalator, and a headphone port lets you groove as you book it from class to class.

Pockets on pockets

  • Familiarity:I've used it several times

I finally caved and got my first college backpack after 2 years of swinging it without one. I've got Anatomy this semester which means many a textbook and I desperately need all the help I can get in keeping organized. This pack is a gem! So many pockets and it feels really durable. The only complaint I have is that the straps are pretty rigid and I'm finding it difficult to wear comfortably. I'm hoping with more use they will loosen up.


Planning to buy this backpack...

    I am a grade 11 student and a female. It's my first time buying and owning a Jansport backpack and I am excited to get the Jansport Big Student Multi Tribal Stripe. I'd like to know how long it'll take to ship this backpack to Canada.


    Lasted me 7 years: 3 HS+ 4 College

    • Gender:Male
    • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

    I bought this backpack my sophomore year of high school and I am now a senior in college about to graduate in engineering. This thing has lasted me FOREVER. It is finally starting to wear out at the bottom as some small holes are showing but this is after I have literally stuffed this thing full on a regular basis with heavy books and my laptop. I also throw it on the ground without second thought and I have brought it with me on every trip I have ever gone on. This includes camping, international trips, any time I fly somewhere, just spending the night somewhere. Why do I bring it everywhere? It is big, it is well built, and you would NEVER think it is as old as it is. It looks less than 6 months old. I might buy another.



      It's a terrible backpack cheaply made the first day I bought it it already started to tear at the seams! I will never buy a Jan sport backpack again! And very expensive for how cheaply made! Anyone who's thinking about buying this backpack I strongly don't suggest it! It was the worst backpack I've ever had!

      I have used for several years in a lot of travels, and it's a great item.
      However, is not waterproof, all your things wil get wet, in the city.
      How can i resolve that problem, with an easy to find sealer?

      Kiwidry is a great product I have used it many times. No troubles.


      Big Bag!

        Really big and roomy bag! Holds everything! Looks good, has quality. Expect it to pack alot and hold up well. Straps feel stiff but I can get over that.

        Any cute colors?

        Just whats shown. Whether they are cute or not is something for you to decide.


        Great backpack!

          I LOVE THIS BACKPACK! I am a junior in high school and carry my backpack around school with me all day. I carry a lot of books around with me, and this is like the one back pack that half the students carry because it takes a lot for it to rip! It is very durable and the straps aren't too bad, either. I highly recommend this backpack to anyone!


          Great Backpack

            I bought this backpack for my son because his old one was ripping. This one has a lot more room, allowing him to hold his schoolbooks as well as his lunch. He is very pleased with it.


            I Love it!

              It's a great bag. It has a ton of space and is comfortable to wear. I have the "pink pig" one and I love it!!!!!

              how long does it take for an order to come in?

              It really depends on the size of the package and the type of shipping you choose, but with this site, things typically come sooner than predicted(by method of shipping), though this cannot be guaranteed.

              The shoulder straps on this back pack...

              The shoulder straps on this back pack initially feel very stiff. Will they soften up with use?

              The straps won't soften, but they will loosen up somewhat with use. Despite this, they'll still be relatively firm and stiff. This is a huge pack to be carrying, especially without any waist harness or chest strap. You may want to look into some other products, including a Camelbak pack. The Alpine Explorer pack is a fantastic place to start in this size range:


              THE BEST BACKPACK!!!

                This is the best backpack ever. It is what I have always used and will use. I love Jansport backpacks and hope to see more and more colorful patterns because they the patters are so unique! Very Good! :)
