Chances are 99.9% of you reading this blog have had a JanSport backpack or a bag with this classic silhouette. How could you not? I remember having the navy edition with the leather bottom which I carried from kindergarten until halfway through high school. Because it was such a basic backpack and 3 out of every 5 kids had one, I remember taking markers to the white outline around the JanSport logo and customizing it so the other kids wouldn’t take it by mistake. Why did I have the same backpack for so long? Oh yeah, the lifetime warranty my parents claimed every time something happened to the bag.
It’s refreshing to see that JanSport is still around and doing well. I get nostalgic when I see these bags in public and almost always turn to a friend to ask if he or she shared the same experience. Now, the JanSport SuperBreak Backpack comes in over 30 different colors and designs — that’s a lot to choose from! Essentially, it’s still the same backpack. Because there are no extra features, materials, or hidden compartments, it is extremely lightweight. The padding on the back and shoulder straps are thin, but it does the job. The main compartment could fit 2 medium sized books or a large textbook, a thin sweater, and possibly some headphones or a lunch bag, but anything more would be pushing its limit. The front pocket has a useful organizer for writing utensils and a calculator or other small items you may want to track.
What makes JanSport stand out is their items are very affordable and they last forever. To this day, they still stand behind their lifetime warranty. I would recommend this bag for young children who need a bigger bag and are outgrowing their cartoon or toy themed backpacks. After all these years it’s the same backpack and I would still use it for school. You could find it almost anywhere, but I would shop online if you’re looking for a particular color or design. It’s probably difficult or impossible to walk into a store and find a seafoam green backpack. Find it on Amazon!
