quality backpack

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Kids use it to go to school and it keeps good shape, color, etc.

Christmas Gift

  • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

I got this backpack for my sister who is a freshman in high school and she totally loved it! Sounds like Jansport is back in style and here to stay! You just can't go wrong with this classic.

Great Backpack

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

This is one of the best backpacks we own. Got it in black and the leather on the bottom is great quality. Solid construction throughout with plenty of room for everything a non-locker using high school student needs. It looks great and feels comfortable, too.

Classic, functional, stylish

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Got a compliment on this backpack yesterday. Thought I would write a review then. He said "lifetime warranty" and its true. Jansport will take care of you for any issues. Very good company in those regards. Classic, not many frills. But a classic good size and reliable as hell.

Nice Backpack

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Great backpack. I bought two, one for a son in college and one for my high schooler. They love them. Good construction and comfortable to wear. Plenty of space, and a nice compartment for their laptops. I definitely recommend this product.

Good overall product

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

The backpack was exactly as described. Shipping was fast. The only reason I didn't give 5 stars is the packaging was basically a plastic bag that contained the backpack so it arrived very wrinkled and took a few days for the fabric to spread out.

Color is Not Maroon

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

Great backpack but - This appears to be maroon, but hence the name, Viking Red, it is not maroon, it is a brick red color.

WHAT are the dimensions. Length width height

    JanSport Right Pack Backpack - 1900 cu i

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Bought this for school for my daughter ...

    She absolutely loves it!!..

    trouble with second one

      Bought one of these and was holding up fine. Had to buy a replacement due to unfortunate circumstances and second one within one week of receiving it, one of straps broke/pulled out from stitching. Don't know how long third one will hold up.

      Did you try sending it back with Jansport's warranty? If I'm not mistaken, they have some kind of lifetime warranty with their backpacks.

        Does this backpack have a laptop sleeve?

        It has more of a document sleeve in the sense that it isn't padded. You can see pics of the sleeve here.
