Jansport Super Break 25L
Advantages: Durable, long life
Disadvantages: Can't easily clean BBQ sauce explosions from it!
I'm in my final year of university now and I've always used Jansport bags to carry my books to lectures. As I'm a literature student I've found this design by Jansport to be the most durable.
The first bag I had was the classic red one, I had this for at least three years, it didn't break and always held what I needed. The only reason I had to replace it was because a small tub of BBQ sauce exploded in the front pouch and I couldn't clean it!
But back to the basics:
The bag itself is your standard backpack, it has two sturdy straps that are easily adjustable, one large pocket where your main contents will go and a smaller front pouch for items such as keys and purses etc.
I've found that the bag itself can easily fit in an A4 folder and a few books after wards and a water bottle (perfect if you're buying it for a student or wanting it for work). It's also good for travelling as it meets the carry-on luggage requirement at airports and I've never had a problem getting it through security.
Despite how much I sometimes put in this bag it always handles the weight easily. Even my 11.7kg laptop doesn't seem to faze it!
The only problem that there seems to be with this bag is that it is not as widely available as I had hoped it would be. I think I purchased my first one on ebags.co.uk which is sadly no longer active but I have seen that they're still available on Amazon for the same price of £20. They're popular in America though so if you happen to be over there they average around $30 which is where I bought my second one.
The best thing about this bag is that it comes in a range of different colours. As mentioned I originally had the plain red one and now own a green checkered one. There's no difference between the bags except the colour and both fit in well on a university campus. There are the standard navy and black colours if you are looking for a backpack for work.
There is a bigger version of this bag available but 25L is bigger than a lot of other backpacks out there and I've found that there's not a lot of space that's wasted with either padding that isn't needed or smaller space that's taken over by design.
Over all this backpack is the best one to go to. I refuse to get any other brand after being with Jansport as I don't want to risk not getting the same quality.
AMAZON.CO.UK - £20 (approx)
US Campus bookstores - $30 (approx)
Navy, Black, Yellow, Red, Pink and an assortment of others
Summary: Great backpack and no need to look anywhere else!
