I usually take this bag to my classes and sometimes to the beach. This bag would be better if the material was not so cheap. I honestly thought it was not worth the price. there are some smaller bags that last 20+ yrs such as super break and rightpack they may not be as roomy as this one. I love the enormous amount of space in this bag. One of the biggest icks was that the fabric got really dirty and crusty after setting it down on the floor a few times. Also, the fabric was a little bit plasticy. I would put it in the washing machine or scrub it the hispanic way . 5/10

At my school High school does not have lockers due to the space we are in. Having a huge, comfortable backpack is super nice because when you have to carry books and other items around like me and such, a back pack like this can become your best friend! I love Jansport backpacks and all they do for their clients who purchase their products. They always assure that they get the best quality possible at a affordable price. Thank You Jansport for making High school a little easier!

I have an older jansport that I have had through high school for the past 3 years and it's in perfect conditpen with the use of many heavy books and still looks good I also use it for gym for hanging out and going to the beach. I am in my senior year and my mother made me get a new one that I will probably use through college.

I use this back pack for just about everything. Trips for work or to the beach, hiking almost DAILY and just about everything else. I'm at the beach right now and just shook a bunch of sand out of it. When I was done I looked at it and thought wow this thing still looks brand new. After my realization I thought I'd come to the website and give it a good review. I'm pretty hard on my belongings and this backpack has held up incredibly well. I would recommend this to anyone:".

The older Cool Student bags seem to be bigger, have thicker straps and made of more durable material than the newer ones. The Party Plum looks more blue in person and the Mauve is a purplish pink color.

After buying them for my (now grown) kids, I decided to get one for myself. Besides, my kids were laughing at the "Goodwill Special" that was using, which was held together by zip ties.

It’s pretty sizable and can accommodate a lot of books, laptop etc. We purchased the cream and it’s pretty white- for a kid I may not attract something which is a stain magnet. I feel it could be be a little sturdier fabric but in the whole I think it will last the year.

ColdB - 3 months ago, Verified purchaser
Within the first month of school, the lining ripped. I took a lot a lot of very good photos of the issue with the backpack. I imagined Jan sport, sending me the exact backpack with a prepaid return shipping package to send them the broken one. NOPE! I am to: 1)request a warranty form 2) print & fill out the form 3) on my own dime buy a mailing package. 4) again on my own dime I am to mail the broken product to Texas 5) wait up to 4 weeks to hear from them 6) this backpack is so unique, on the warranty form it says they will send you “something similar”. They are putting the customer through all of these ridiculous obstacles and still you may not get the original backpack you wanted. You’re expected to go almost 2 months without a backpack and you’re not guaranteed a new product. There’s a chance you may get the exact one with “repairs,” All of this for $59.99. I always thought of Jansport as a quality, Trustworthy company NOPE!!!

I bought two of the cool student design backpacks, in different colors, for my kids and the brown material on. It's started ripping apart almost immediately on both. It's definitely not typical JanSport quality.

This backpack has been seen in schools for decades. I like the leather (or leather like) bottom. It helps keep holes away. My middle schooler loads this thing as full as he can. Holding up well after 1 school year.

This backpack may look sturdy with a matching price, but IT’S NOT. It has cheap materials and is not durable. Look elsewhere for the good quality version with real suede leather at the bottom and leathers zipper pulls.
