I have cherished this backpack since high school. It may not be flashy, but it reliably carries all of my things and resists my abuse well. After years of owning it, I’ve only had one ripped pocket, and no other issues. The elastic drink holder’s threads haven’t ripped yet, the zippers haven’t jammed, and in a world of slim, trim Herschel bagpacks or other streamlined (at the cost of practicality) backpacks, I’m proud to hold onto my bulky, unpretentious, early-2000s-style Jansport. It has a nerd-chic charm all of its own, one which (hopefully) is still considered quirky amd neat here at Harvard.
