As the world's largest maker of backpacks, it is safe to say JanSport knows a thing or two about making great bags. Specializing in casual and lifestyle brand backpacks, the company offers a great line of different styles to choose. Some options are best for school use where you may need pockets and sleeves for electronics. For longer use, check out some of the travel and outdoor models that come with water-resistant materials and carrying handles/transport wheels. Most importantly, make sure any backpack you consider has the right size and adjustability to fit around your torso without feeling too awkward.
