My daiughter's last Jansport bag has lasted almost 4 years. She is NOT a delicate flower, so they really hold up well. This one is one step bigger then her last and she was thrilled with more pocket space for snacks etc.
I love this backpack. I love the pattern and it’s been great for me so far. I use it to carry binders and and small boxes of supplies all at the same time. It’s been comfortable on my shoulders for the times I wear it and need it. Hope this helps.
