Perfect Pack Finder Guide

Perfect Pack Finder Guide

The backpack is the hardest working item of all your school gear.

They're used every day, from transporting the classroom essentials to weekend sports and adventures.

These adventures can pack a fair bit of rough and tumble over the year, not to mention the weight of those heavy school books.

So, it's always worth taking the time to choose the right pack to last the year and beyond.

Everyone has their different needs when it comes to a backpack, and often the bag that fits best varies between your age and size.

If you're not sure which bag could be the one for you, get ready to meet your perfect pack.

For the young go-getter: Cross Town

The Cross Town is the perfect sized school bag for primary students, with plenty of space in the main compartment for notebooks, a lunchbox and the latest craft project. The Cross Town* also skips our zip cover flaps, so closing up is extra easy for students prone to getting them jammed.

*Now made with Recycled Materials.

For the on-campus student: Big Student & Main Campus

If you're about to start high school classes, chances are you'll need a big backpack to carry all your textbooks. With two main compartments, plenty of pockets and a dedicated padded laptop compartment, the Big Student* will carry everything you need and still leave room for PE gear.

*Now made with Recycled Materials.

If you're after all the best features of our big backpacks, with a more sophisticated look and improved weight distribution, the Main Campus will be your perfect fit - ideal for both college and university students.

For the everyday adventurer: SuperBreak Plus & Right Pack

For a light, everyday pack fit for students of all ages, and the versatility needed for weekend adventures, the SuperBreak* range will go anywhere you go. Our iconic SuperBreak Plus* features one main compartment, a padded laptop sleeve and a water bottle pocket, perfect for exploring the city.

*Now made with Recycled Materials.

For a mid-sized bag with a more classic look, ultra-durable Cordura® fabric and a signature suede bottom, the Right Pack will be right there with you for any activity.

Our latest upgrade to the Right Pack III now features a padded 15" laptop sleeve and a side water bottle pocket.

Need a bigger bag?

Sometimes you just have a lot of stuff when it comes to school, so your backpack has to keep up. If you need even more space, try a duffel bag for extra room to hold any overflow or sports gear.

And remember, a bag shouldn't be too heavy for your student to carry - even if you need to pack for the busiest of school days.

This Back To School season, we've got organization, laptop sleeves, water bottle pockets and our Lifetime Guarantee to follow... whatever the feature, JanSport has your perfect school bag.
