Great product and Customer Service

I ordered this backpack for my daughter and she loves it! We had to return one backpack because it was the wrong design and reordered a new one in the same call. The customer service was great. Very accommodating! We received the new backpack in just a few days.

It is the best and unique of all the jansport superbreaks.It looks small but has a huge storage capacity. The front pouch is also very pretty and there is a tiny organizer in there for my accesories. The whole backpack is drowned in delicious art! It is great! The insides are smooth and soft and the padding feels nice. Plus the fabric is well-sewn. Just great! My favorite one ever that I had bought!

Nice backpack for my elementary school child, my son is very happy with it, excellent quality for a reasonably priced backpack. Jansport makes quality products , I definitely love how fast the shipping is and how well they send the product (in protective packaging). Highly Recommended , Altrec.com +++

Simple, reasonably priced, and very functional. Perfect!

Ready for anything
May 02, 2010

I've had this bag for two and a half years now, and it's survived everything, from concerts to biking to hiking to the daily grind at school. There's more room in the backpack than one would think at first sight.

Really good
August 02, 2009

Very stylish and by the looks of it it's going 2 last a long time

Perfect size for vacation alternative to a purse.
January 04, 2008

Took this packpack as my purse on an 8-day cruise to Mexico. I was big enough to keep my wallet and purchases in and yet not too large to knock stuff off shelves while shopping.

Great backpacks for great prices.
August 18, 2009

I ordered two for my grandchildren. We usually go to the Jansport outlet, but I got a better deal from Altrec and by ordering more than one I got free shipping. I know they are good quality and the kids love the their new backpacks.

Love it!

Awesome Backpack
July 16, 2012

I have been looking for a nice yet decent priced backpack for my daughter for quite a while now. All of the ones I have come across that were in my price range were too small. This backpack is not only a reasonable price, but super roomy for all of my daughter's toys and books. The quality of this backpack is top notch, and the pattern is so adorable. My daughter loves it!

Pros: Great design, Build quality, Ease of use, Great value

January 05, 2010

This is a great pack. Just recently we have lost it, so here we are purchasing a new one. Highly recommended.

Great deal in Backpacks....
April 12, 2008

I love all the backpacks I bought..they are cute, good quality, and affordable. I bought it on sale price... really good deal..!!! and it is perfect for my studying kids

Great Price
August 18, 2010

Last year I bought cheap backs pack for back to school thinking there wasn't much difference except for style and size. Boy was I wrong. The back packs lasted maybe three months before they literally fell apart. I've read many reviews and searched a lot of websites and Jansport kept coming up as a good value. Altrec not only offered the Jansport back pack for less money than other well known websites, they had the best selection!

Beautiful Cute Bag
July 19, 2012

This is a really cute bag, perfect size for my 8 year old, love the purple tye dye colors. Quality is ok, it will last the year, maybe longer, but it is not made like it used to be. I still have my Jansport bag from the 80's, and the quality is no comparison. I guess everyone has to cut costs.

December 18, 2011

Pros: Great design, Build quality, Ease of use, Great value, Performance

Love it!
January 01, 2008

I bought this for my 13 year old daughter. She loves it and Jansport is good quality. I ordered this online and it was delivered during the busy christmas holiday within 3 days. Very impressed with this company.

Still the best after all these years.
August 12, 2010

I got my first Jansport backpack while I was in middle school. It lasted forever. I bought my daughter her first Jansport SuperBreak for her first day of junior high, and I am pleased to report that the construction seems just as good as when I bought mine. I'm sure it will withstand the years of lugging around notebooks, math textbooks and iPods that are to come.

September 01, 2009

We looked all over our town for this specific back pack in this specific color! Thank goodness for your online ordering! My daughter is thrilled - she got just what she wanted!

January 12, 2008

These backpacks do not only look nice, there functionality is unpresidented. I cant believe how nice it is.

Great Deal!
June 12, 2009

I've always bought Jansport for my kids...they last the whole school year and come in a wide array of colors and patterns. We love these!

Great backpack!!!
August 18, 2010

Love this backpack, bought it for both my 6th grader and 8th grader and now going to order one for my 9th grader, holds everything and has a great selection of colors.

great price on our favorite backpacks
December 15, 2009

Hard to find a deal on these in the middle of the school year. This was great. They are the perfect size for my kids. Great selection of colors.

Well Made
September 21, 2009

Good quality backpack for a great price my daughter has used this backpack before and likes how roomy the large compartment is. Unfortunately had to return Nubud Green because color didn't look like picture. Easy to return and very courteous staff.

from Portland, OR

Love the design!
December 19, 2011

I have 3 jansport backpacks. they are so cute and very light. I think they are storong enough to carry 4-5 books. I am going to buy more backpack as many as possible. You will love them!

August 25, 2010

I was very pleased with the service that I received when I ordered from your company. The backpacks were the right color and just perfect in all ways. The shipping time was good too. I would definitely order more things from your company.

January 05, 2010

It's a great backpack. Just recently we lost it so here were are replacing it. Highly recommended.

The oh so perfect backpack!
August 22, 2009

My daughter saw the pattern and she HAD to have, and we couldn't find. Altrec had the Oh So perfect pattern at a good price. We didn't qualify for free shipping, but the charge was reasonable. It saved me from running around and making countless calls, and delivered right to my door!

It's fantastic~
September 03, 2010

I have bought two of this backpack, one for myself and another for my friend~We both love the bays once we got them~It's a little thin but it's Ok for normal school working~Ha

August 07, 2009

My children absolutely love their new backpacks. They are so excited to carry them that they are picking outfits for the first day of school to match them. I love the fact that I saved so much money by buying them from Altrec...I probably saved about $60 !!!! These backpacks are great, I don't know of too many backpacks that offer a lifetime guarantee! I think my children will be able to use these backpacks for quite a long time.

Great purchase
April 15, 2010

I bought this bag for my daughter who appreciated the wide selection of designs. We are both satisfied with the item which is strong enough for school. She just loves her design.

My daughter loves her backpack
September 02, 2008

The picture of the dark french gray, fiji orange backpack did not do it justice. IT IS SO ADORABLE!! Best of all she is the only one at school that has it. It is very light weight, durable, and comfortable. Thanks.

great bag
February 17, 2010

The backpack is just as described. I am happy with the space inside of it. I am very happy by how quickly my order was processed.
