Jansport Giant Backpack Review

Today I have a special announcement. We’ll be renaming from ‘packing less’ to ‘packing large’. And to commemorate this new name we’re going to be reviewing this equally large Jansport backpack. This bag is made from a durable nylon material and is surprisingly lightweight at only 740grams (1.6lbs) which is actually just about lighter than every bag we’ve previously reviewed on this channel. And so that makes this the best one bag for all your travel needs.

As you can see here is looks very normal and reasonably sized on my back. Its very sleek and won’t draw any attention. This bright vivid green is sure to blend into most environments too meaning you can walk through crowds with ease.

This bag is also very multipurpose and can be used for a wide range of activities. For example hiking, you can fit a years worth of supplies inside. For camping you can carry what you need and then actually sleep inside the bag itself. It also fits my guitar as you can see here with room to spare. Its also great for shopping, I was able to fit over a weeks worth of groceries inside with plenty of room to spare.

Its also pet friendly, as you can see here my cat loves it and may steal it from me if I’m not careful. Now its not all positives. Theres unfortunately no dedicated laptop compartment and so I recommend using a sleeve if you’re going to carry a laptop. Or more conveniently you could use a laptop backpack and pack that into this bag. You can actually use this bag to store several additional packed backpacks ready for your trip. So instead of packing cubes, packed backpacks serve to organise the inside of this bag.

The straps of this bag are very well padded and its very comfortable to wear for long periods of time. The top grab handle is useful too. Unfortunately there is no sternum strap, hip belt or external water bottle pocket but I don’t think it necessarily needs them.

Overall this is a very versatile backpack with many uses and an excellent bag for packing large. Do let me know in the comments how you would use this backpack yourself on your trips and be sure to subscribe to keep up to date with future videos.
