Stick to the basics.

There's a reason you see the Jansport Superbreak 25L Backpack everywhere, and will continue to see it, because its proven design makes it impossible to resist. With plenty of space for books, workout clothes, or the day's provisions, the Superbreak works as nicely in the commuter circuit as it does on campus. The 2/3-length back panel padding adds cushioning while you navigate a sea of students and the front accessory pocket includes a built in media sleeve, so you can rock out from point A to point B.

  • Classic backpack with schoolyard style
  • Not-too-huge offers room for textbooks or gym clothes
  • Padded back panels provide commuter comfort
  • Media sleeve lets you groove as you move

Perfect Back to School backpack

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

Got this for my niece and nephew in middle and high school. Perfect simple backpack and can hold all of their books and binders, they love them! Great price too!

Awesome back pack!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I got this backpack in "oh bananas" and it's adorable!! Very fun pattern with vibrant colors. I've had Jansport backpacks before and they always last forever! I'm sure this one will be no exception. The construction is durable and it's a great size! I plan on taking it on road trips and using it as a gym bag. The front pocket is handy, with a spot for a few pens inside. Zipper is stiff at first and takes some breaking in.

An update: I think the backpack, while very durable, is more for looks than functionality. It's very simple but that was to be expected from the good price point. I took this to D.C. for the weekend sightseeing. The straps weren't very comfortable and I really wish it had an outer pocket on the side for a water bottle. However, it is very roomy and could hold a LOT. I was the designated "stuff carrier" because I had the extra space.

Awesome back pack!

great tough book bag!

        JanSport makes great no-frills backpacks for a great price. I got this as a gift for my wife in Forge Grey, which was still "cute" enough for her, but masculine enough for me to carry when she’s tired of carrying the backpack.

        What's not to love?

        This backpack was a gift for my wife, in the High Risk Red/White Sylvia Dot pattern. She loves the pattern and all of the stitching and seams are still very much intact even after having been overstuffed. Not just for school, this backpack has also been great for overnight trips and to use on vacations.

        I bought this for a my high school aged in-laws. They love them, and i think the basic JanSports are just "so in" right now. Not much has changed from the ones I wore in elementary school forever ago. Colors are right on.

        Is it going to be big enough because i put...

        Is it going to be big enough because i put A LOT of things in my bags my last 4 bags broke because the weren't strong enough or big enough

        Best Answer


        "Big enough" is a pretty loose concept without knowing what you are carrying, how you are carrying it, or where you are carrying it. The JanSport Superbreak is a tough little bag and could probably handle some decent abuse.

        However, if you are looking for a bag that is outright bombproof I would suggest the Patagonia Black Hole Daypack or Patagonia Black Hole Messenger Bag.

        Where is the Swedish Blue/Pink Tulip Spray...

        Where is the Swedish Blue/Pink Tulip Spray Can kind? i looked it up an hour ago and it was here and now it is'nt and i wanted to but it!

            Small backpack does the job great! Highly recommended by a College student who is on the move.
