Bought this backpack as a replacement to an older version of same model. The original backpack was used for school and lasted years carrying pounds of books, equipment and other things students carry. I was pleased to see the design of this model is identical to the first one, so I anticipate years of use. And after 5 years the first was retired as it was shabby - nothing had ripped, pulled or broken. Still has life in it. Having purchased numerous backpacks over the years I think this is a well thought out design and a well manufactured product. It is ergonomically designed and has padding to soften the load. Numerous pockets and compartments makes stashing things easy and it is robust. The only suggestion to JanSport I would make is to make some in cooler colors but otherwise I can't recommend this highly enough. Very happy with this purchase.

Awesome little bag! I use this as my everyday bag. I got so tired of lugging around a purse and it was always slipping off my shoulder. This is so easy to carry around! It feels weightless even when full. My only wish would for there to be some sort of pockets on the inside, but I may fix that myself. I would definitely recommend, it's not too big or too small.

Great backpack for my 7 year old daughter. It's not too big, yet holds everything she needs for school - lunch box, snack bag and folders. It doesn't have any compartments within, and has one zipper compartment in the front. Perfect for her needs.

Disappointing. This backpack lacks any kind of framing structure, so the contents get jumbled around in it. Although the main pouch is very deep, it's hard to find things in it. Will exchange for another backpack.

I love this bookbag. It is super durable and cute! I want to buy another in a different color or pattern.

I bought this backpack for my 3rd grade daughter. It is nice-looking and very good quality, but I am giving it 3 stars because I am disappointed that it doesn't have an outside compartment for a water bottle. The water bottle must be placed in the main compartment with schoolwork and everything else, so if the bottle ever leaks, that will be a problem. My daughter loves the backpack, however.

They are wonderful bags. They also are comfortable and gives no back pain. Also it has great material used on them. And the colors are the best. I love it! Jansport bags are the best!

This is the 2nd bag we ordered from JanSport and the color (upon arrival) is QUITE DIFFERENT from the color on-line. On-line this looks White however it is actually very beige. The orange/melon bag also was inaccurate - it was very red. Both were returned. Very sad!

Colors of backpack are even better in person, very vibrant. Always had good luck with JanSport backpacks, they are really sturdy and hold multiple heavy textbooks easily. Zappos customer service is excellent, they upgraded free standard shipping to free next day shipping to ensure delivery for the first day of school! Will definitely buy from Zappos again.

The JanSport Odyssey is a great versatile backpack. I use mine as my "purse" for work. It has a laptop sleeve that protects my computer. In addition to that it has great pockets to hold everything I have.

My high school son loves this backpack. It has just enough pockets to keep him organized but not so many that he has to check a million places when he can't remember where he put something. It's not all that big so if you have a lot of books to carry, find a different one.

Super cute pack. Perfect in size, style, functionality and design- to delight my newly minted 2nd grade daughter. Generally, I prefer plain and simple without too many bells and whistles, but this little pack charmed me.

This is a great basic backpack. Doesn't have extra interior pockets, just the main compartment and smaller outside zipped pocket. I ordered this for my middle schooler, but it was a bit too small for all his books, PE clothes and lunch. However, it's perfect for my 4th grader. Very durable, and comfortable. Just check the dimensions to make sure it will work for your needs. Highly recommend!

I bought this backpack for my daughter who entered 7th grade. I've never bought a Jansport backpack that wasn't of the highest quality and that didn't have great durability. Her backpacks last for years! Last years Jansport backpack was in really good condition but she loved the cool design of this one and so I surprised her with it prior to school staring. She's extremely happy with her new backpack!

Absolutely love the backpack! In the picture it appears lighter than the actual backpack is. It's a very pretty light beige. I've been using mine for over a month and I couldn't be happier. I fits my 15" Macbook protected in the sleeve - I don't even put a case on it. It fits all my other notebooks and planner and various items with room to spare!

I got this for my daughter, an eighth grader. She has a heavy load for her school. This backpack does the trick. The fabric design is playful for a middle schooler, but sturdy and comfortable. As always, I am happy with Zappos for its convenience and speedy delivery!

My daughter loves this backpack. She gets a ton of compliments on it. It is super soft and fun to touch. So far it has held up, and I notice her taking a little better care of it because she likes it so much.

This is a GREAT backpack! I have three of these, one for my nine-year old and two for my six-year olds. This is the second year for my daughter and the backpack still looks brand new. There are two large zippered pockets in the back, we use one for wet winter stuff and the other one for folders and lunch sacks. There is another small pocket to hold shoes and a few other spots for stashing small items. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Zappos for having demonstration video's because it helped make my decision so much easier. LOVE YOU ZAPPOS!! XOXO
