This American brand are biggest backpack maker in the world and are owned by the same company as North Face. JanSport have been making backpacks and bags for over 40 years now so they must be getting something right, but how are they holding up in the modern world? They all come with a lifetime guarantee so JanSport seem pretty sure of its quality.
We have decided to look at some of the most popular laptop backpacks and see if they are just as superior as the original backpacks made by JanSport. We will be looking into details such as quality, price and design.
This backpack has over 2400 Amazon reviews and with 78% of them rating it with 5 stars it’s hard to turn a blind eye to how great this backpack is. It comes with loads of helpful features and various compartments for gadgets.
It’s of high quality and many of the reviews state how durable it is. It is also very large and perfect for big books and laptops. We feel the positives of this bag outweighs the negatives, however unfortunately we did find a few things we did not like. The zips can easily get jammed in the large flaps over the zippers and due to there being little padding it can be uncomfortable at times.

This back pack is said to be nearly indestructible by JanSport and 75% of the 677 customer reviews give it 5 stars and many mention its durability. The few negative reviews this bag has received comment on how the bag has torn within a few months of buying. It’s made with leather, cordura and has a reinforced suede bottom which must make you think what could these people have been carrying to break this bag?
Despite a couple of reviews claiming this bag breaks easily, the majority of people love the quality. Another great quality of this bag is its large size. It has a 31 litre capacity and easily big enough to fit laptops, books folder and all your belongings. Features: 31 litre capacity, Bag dimensions: 20” x 16” x 1”, Laptop pocket dimensions: 10.5”H x 11”W x 1”D, Variety of pockets, Padded shoulder pads, Reinforced suede bottom, Durable, Comfortable straps, Stylish, Lots of pockets, Available in a variety of colours, Not weatherproof, Different colours come with large variety of price tags for the same bag, ranging from £29 – £120
A common compliment this bag receives is how light and comfortable it is. The well-padded shoulder straps made with ventilated mesh, cushion your shoulders but keep them cool underneath.
It’s a two-tone bag made of denier polyester ballistic. This makes it extremely light and also weatherproof. The bag is made with three sections including a padded laptop sleeve and also has dual pockets on either side for water bottles.
It comes in different bright colours and we love its smart look, its versatility and how functional it is.
Features – Multiple compartments including deluxe organiser, Ergonomic Aircore shoulder straps, Padded grab handle, 38 litre capacity, Bag dimensions 21.3” x 14.8” x 11”, Front reflective lashing square, Pros – Smart design, Multiple pockets making it easy to organise belongings, Large and roomy for books, laptops, binders, Durable, Reasonably priced. Cons – Strap to secure laptop in its sleeve only fits laptops that are 14” or less. Any bigger and the laptop still fits in sleeve without moving about but the Velcro strap doesn’t secure
So this bag is both a backpack and wheelie travel case. The padded shoulder straps can be tucked away when it’s easier to wheel which makes it so handy for a short trip or a few days away. It’s a really handy bag which takes the strain off your shoulders when needed.
Just like most JanSport bags it’s nice and roomy and large enough for books, laptops etc this bag is also more than big enough to pack stuff for a weekend away. We think this bag would make a perfect short break travel bag but would also be great as a school/ work bag.
Features – Hide away shoulder straps, Two main compartments, 19” high x 14” wide, Retractable handle, Nylon. Pros – Doubles up as both a backpack and a wheelie suitcase, Padded comfortable straps, Side pockets for water bottles made with mesh, Strong, sturdy and durable, Padded laptop sleeve to protect your laptop, Reasonably priced for how long it lasts. Cons – Although large in size Not many compartments, Can be uncomfortable whilst worn on back.
