    I owned one of these for over 10 years. It went through college with me and was big enough for all of my books, etc. Post college, my son used it for school and during it all, it went traveling with us several times a year. I probably would still have it and use it for travel except that on one of those trips, I parked my car across from the Air & Space Museum in D.C. and someone broke in. All they took was my pack and a knit cap…so even the homeless(?) know a good pack when they see it. They left all kinds of electronic games they could have sold for some dough!

    It’d Get 5 Stars if It Had a Water Bottle Pocket!, August 4, 2009

    I’ve been using this bag for my commute now for about 2.5 weeks. And I have to say, so far I’ve been pleased with it, except for one afternoon when we got a torential downpour. The backpack is not waterproof, but I knew this before purchasing, so it’s more of an observation rather than a complaint. This bag doesn’t repel water much at all, and almost all of my stuff in my bag was socking wet after 15 minutes of waiting for my bus in the rain. However, during a mist or a light sprinkle, this bag is great.

    I’ve been a fan of Jansport bags since I was little, and they have lasted me through middle school, high school, and college, and one bag had even lasted through 9 months traveling through Europe.

    I chose this bag because of it’s design. I wanted something simple and black, without a lot of doodads attatched to it. The front pocket is quite spacious and holds my (very fat) wallet, phone, iPod, keys, pressed power compact and a few other things. The main compartment holds my stuffed travel pillow (which does not compress down at all) an 6″ x 8″ x 3″ hardcase lunchbox, my Kindle, makeup bag, folders and paper I carry back and forth, and when I’m not carrying my Kindle, a book, and a water bottle. My only complaint really about this bag is the lack of an outer water bottle pocket. I always have a liquid on me (I can’t tell you how many times that’s saved me on delayed trains) and I like it easily accessible. However, with this bag, I either have to hand carry it, or put it in my bag. This is a problem in the mornings as my bottle comes out of my fridge, and by the time I get to work, the condensation has made things in my bag damp. The lack of a water bottle pocket is the only reason this bag will not be making the cut for my back packing trip through Eastern Europe next spring. Instead, I’ll be taking my other Jansport bag that’s larger and a bit heavier, but has 2 outer water bottle pockets.

    Overall a great bag, as long as you don’t take it into the elements, and you don’t mind not having your water bottle immediately accessible.

    In these days and times backpacks, bookbags, etc have become so outlandish. This is a classically styled all american backpack. No bells, no whistles, just a good ole standbye bag! Hard to find now-a-days.
