When it comes to bags, I’m pretty picky. Whether it’s a purse, a piece of luggage, or a backpack, there are certain things I look for. I want something functional yet stylish with ample room and compartments to keep my essentials neat and organized. That’s why I am so in love with the new spring collection of backpacks from Jansport–they speak to all of my must-haves.


10490808_1The perfect city living backpack

While this Jansport Hatchet Special Edition 15” Laptop Backpack is idea for an endless variety of activities, I see it as the perfect “city living” backpack. It’s ideal for people like me who commute to and from work on city transit, walk to coffee shops to work on the weekends, and need to tote files and lunches to and from the office on a daily basis.

It’s loaded with useful storage compartments including a tablet pocket and a padded sleeve for a 15” laptop. Even better, that laptop sleeve serves dual duty and can be used to store a 3-litre hydration system for those days you want to get out of the city and escape into nature.

Its one main compartment has ample room for all your essentials, and its organizer panel, zippered side and front pockets, and dual water bottle pockets will keep your belongings well-organized and easily accessible.


The ideal school backpack for the girlie-girl10490799_1

You don’t have to be a girlie-girl to love this Jansport Right Pack Expressions 18” Laptop Backpack in Cherry Blossom, but it certainly does have a feminine look to it, which personally, I absolutely love. Aesthetics aside, its functionality is ideal for the student on the go.

In addition to its one main compartment, it has an interior sleeve that can accommodate a 15” laptop, as well as a zippered front pocket, which is ideal for things like your wallet, headphones, and chargers, and a utility pocket with organizer to keep your go-to items organized and within reach.


The minimalist’s backpack10490805

For people who don’t like a lot of bells and whistles, the Jansport Super FX Backpack is a perfect choice. Simple and timeless, this backpack is an ideal companion for whatever your day might bring. Whether you’re headed to school or into the mountains for a winter hiking trek, the Super FX has you covered with its large main compartment, built in organizer, front utility pocket, and super lightweight design. Plus, its straight-cut padded shoulder straps ensure a comfy fit no matter what your day may bring.


The perfect backpack for versatility10490828

Last but not least in this preview of Jansport’s new spring collection is the SuperBreak 16.7” Day Backpack. As is the case with the rest of Jansport’s bags, this backpack is exceptionally versatile and can be used for almost any activity you can imagine. Its lightweight design makes it ideal for tasks like running errands or running across campus to get to your next class on time.

Like the other three backpacks noted above, its large main compartment is ideal for anything from text books to gym gear, and its front utility pocket is perfect for keeping those everyday essentials easily accessible, no matter where your day may take you. Add to that the fact that it is made from durable 600 Denier polyester for long-lasting use, and the SuperBreak is a winner in the world of backpacks.


No matter what you need or want in a backpack, Jansport’s new spring collection has you covered. The tough part will be deciding which one to choose!
