Not good quality, stress on neck
on September 21, 2012
I've been trying to replace my 11-year old mesh backpack made by Jansport. My mesh backpack was simply amazing and, thus, the reason why it has been with me for so many years. Sadly, it was now time to replace it so I started looking for a new mesh backpack. My old one had 2 compartments and the new one, that Jansport makes, only has 1 so it was a no-go.
When I saw this backpack I noticed it fitted more than my mesh backpack while still looking slick and it had a laptop compartment so I ordered it thru Amazon. It just arrived and I was eager to try it.
My first complain is that the backpack arrived with a cut on the side, so it was already damaged. I then proceeded to load it with what I would normally load it with: laptop, camera, lenses, and notebook. To my surprise the material of the backpack is super cheap, and not of good quality. Additionally, the strap on the top put a ton of pressure on your neck so that the weight of the stuff in your backpack doesn't rest on your shoulder but your neck.
That said, I'm returning this backpack ASAP.
:( Bad, bad Jansport.
