Q: Would this size be too large for an elementary age student (6-12)?

submitted by Diane - 9 months ago
  • A: Bought For My 5th Grade Daughter. It Fits Fine And She's 10

    submitted byAngela - 8 months ago
  • A: Thanks for reaching out to JanSport regarding pack size, choosing a backpack is is definitely a personal decision and we would reccomend the following steps. 1. Determine what will be carried in the backpack as this will help you choose a size. Be mindful that the more you carry the heavier the pack. 2. Figure out if you like one large dump compartment or if you like multiple compartments to help organize yourself. 3. If possible try a backpack on and maybe even load some weight in it to see how it feels. Every person has a little different back length and size to there is not a one size fits all. Most packs will feel okay but you will usually find one that feels better than another. 4. Choose your favorite color once you decide on which backpack you want. JanSport packs are designed to fit most 12-24 year olds so trying to fit some younger may be a challenge just from the size of the straps and the pack. Choosing a backpack is a personal decision and following these steps will hopefully make things easier. Thanks for contacting JanSport.

Poor Quality in Water Bottle Holder

1 out of 5 stars
Thumbs down graphic, would not recommend
Emily H - 5 months ago, Verified purchaser
This is our second Jansport backpack purchased in as many years and this is the second time the water bottle netting has broken at the top and bottom. I was going to personally reinforce it with my sewing machine, but never got it done and the water bottle netting has now broken after two months of my son using it for school. Jansport has a limited lifetime warranty, but I have to pay for the shipping to and from and wait three weeks, so I guess I will go through Target instead. I will not be purchasing another Jansport backpack again until the water bottle holder has been improved.

I love the size and the water bottle side pocket. I use this for work and school. The peach color reminds me more of a neon orange and it’s so pretty. I’ve had many work/school bags their either too small or I lose items in it and it’s not comfortable to carry. I went with jansport because my son has had the same one for a couple years and it takes a beating since he’s 7. It has held up to him.

Lena - 5 months ago, Verified purchaser
It’s a cute backpack. But it ripped from the water bottle holder, after two months of using it. Since it was pricey, I wrapped those strings of bracelets through it to get more time of use with it.

This bag was purchased about a month ago and the strap is already ripping. The liner on the inside is also ripping. My middle-schooler has only used it for 3 weeks! They are definitely not the quality that they used to be. Such a shame!
