JanSport Wasabi Backpack (Black)
Jack’s Rating: 4.8 out of 5 stars
What can I say about the JanSport Wasabi Backpack? If you have been following this blog for any length of time, you know I am a big fan of JanSport. As I have said before, I have one of my first backpacks sitting just a few feet from my desk as I write this review.
Be sure to check out our Backpack Buyer’s Guide before you make your purchase.
I’ve liked JanSport products since my earliest days as a backpacker in the Rocky Mountain high country. My JanSport Classic backpack has been with me on hiking excursions as well as on business trips all over the country. I’m pretty sure that a JanSport is going to hold up against anything a middle school, high school, or college student can put it through.
JanSport Wasabi Backpack is Perfect for Students and Commuters
This backpack was designed for people on the go. The JanSport Wasabi backpack has a roomy 1800 cubic inches of interior space that includes lots of storage compartments and a dedicated side-entry laptop compartment that will hold up to a 15-inch laptop. The back panel is fully and comfortably padded so the hard corners of books and other items don’t push into your back.
The shoulder straps are made with AirCore technology and designed to provide super-comfortable, ergonomically contoured support even when carrying heavy loads over long distances.
The front utility pocket has lots of room and comes with a handy organizer, a V-loft pocket for easy access and a convenient water bottle pocket on the side. A strong web-haul handle on top allows the bag to be carried by hand as well. Of course, the JanSport Wasabi Backpack comes with a lifetime warranty.

“My favorite bookbag. I love my bookbag. I haven’t had any problems with it so far. I will second that the laptop pocket doesn’t have a lot of padding. My laptop is a 15.7″ so it doesn’t fit in the pocket anyway (I just use a laptop pocket and slip it in my bag), so I use it for my main binder. I can fit three giant college books and my laptop into the main compartment, and in the laptop pocket I put my 1.5″ main binder, tons of pens pencils and a couple smaller notebooks in the outer pocket, and in the outer most pocket, I use it as a snack pocket, in addition to some other random items, since I am constantly in class or studying. There is also a top pocket up near the back of your neck, I think it’s the perfect pocket for wallet, cell phone, keys, and ipod. I was a little hesitant at first in buying the bookbag offline, due to size constraints I have had in the past with other bookbags, but this is the perfect bookbag for me and I recommend it for Commuter Students.

“Great bag! I ordered this book bag after my other Jansport was stolen, i love the brand because they seem to last forever. The bag i had before this was a lot more basic. I ordered this one based on looks alone and was surprised at all the great features it had after it arrived. It was a 15 inch laptop sleep in the back, which is probably great for most people, but my laptop is to large to fit. It has to large front zipper pockets to carry books. I am a college student and use this bag to haul heavy books around. It also has many pockets on the interior for misc. items such as pens, calculators etc. and a water bottle holder on the side. It also has a small pocket at the top between the the shoulder straps that i have not yet figured out what belongs there yet, possibly laptop cords? I love the backpack, and it feels much lighter on my back than the smaller more generic Jansport bags.”

“Cheap, durable, JanSport. loved these bags, had them all through my childhood/highschool and now college. Plenty of pockets for storing books, laptops, cases, art supplies… really anything that goes in a backpack! 😛 These bags are way overpriced in department stores in my area and I am glad I found them on amazon.”
