"I was in a car accident and can no longer use my Jansport Big Student backpack that I loved. I was hoping that this backpack would be similar, but I find that I am left wanting. It does not hold as much as the Big Student. This is an issue because I am majoring in music and communications and I am minoring in french. Needless to say, I have a lot of books and school related material that I need all the time. The laptop compartment does not cover the top corners of my 15" laptop. I find this unsafe in a wheelie bag because they are so close to the floor and people trip over the bag all the time in the hallways. The bag tips over when filled to capacity and the front pockets have little organization in comparison to the big student. I am extremely tough on bags and I was hopeful it would hold up, but it is not fairing as well as hoped. I purchased this bag in December 2014 and the material in the front is already scratched and is on the verge of tearing, the wheels are loud and roll wonky, the button on the handle sticks, and the handle seems to be deteriorating. With that being said the bag has withstood a MN winter. I sprayed it with waterproofing spray and it worked fairly well. It was even dragged through the snow. Due to my injuries I could not carry the bag up and down stairs so there was a lot of dragging and pulling it up and down stairs. The bag feels very heavy without books in it let alone with the massive amount of books I carry. This made it very difficult to maneuver it in and out of my car. On a disgusting note, the bag did become VERY statically charged so it would be covered with random hairs and such from school. On a whole the bag was not what I was hoping for, but it got the job done. It would be a great bag if it could be organized more efficiently in the smaller pockets and if the wheels and handle were better quality."

"I purchased the JanSport Driver 8 Wheeled Backpack specifically for transporting books, laptop and equipment associated with my studies in the nursing program. Not only does this backpack accomodate all my college needs; it is stylish and very durable. The contents are easily accessible because it continues to stand upright even when full of books, etc. The wheels are quiet when in motion and it is very easy to maneuver. I looked at a lot of wheeled backpacks and found the JanSport Driver 8 to be top quality at a reasonable price."

"I bought this bag 5 years ago for business travel. I am a platinum level flyer every year so this bag has seen hundreds of thousands of miles and unbelievably, it looks as good today as it did new. I've had several samsonites before this Jansport and none of them lasted more than two years. Even my suisse Army by wenger gave up (pull handle came undone) after two years. this is the ultimate business laptop traveler because: 1. It weighs just under 5lbs. Important since many international airlines only allow carry-ons less than 15lbs(7kgs). 2. Quick transition to backpack in seconds allows you to cruise through security checkpoints that weigh rolling carry-on bags just in case you are over the 15lb limit:) 3. Stable design means it stands up no matter how much I load into it, even when with the zipper open. 4. As big as it is, it fits into a CRJ overhead compartment! 5. Rediculously durable. 5 years of travel and only now has one of the zippers finally come undone, but...it's got a lifetime warrantee so voila! fixed for free. Nice. 6. Rugged wheels roll over anything including gravel. 7. It's got lots of storage for it's weight. Two bottles of wine fit easily into the main compartment with room left for personal items. I've crammed as many as 4 bottles with the laptop. A bit more interior organization would have been nice, but I sorted my own insert so it works great for me."

"The JanSport Driver 8 works great for my daughter's long treks acrosss campus and to labs. Her back does not hurt, she can move faster with less effort. Much better than an ordinary heavy backpack she was using. Overall, it works perfect for her busy life style. She carries several heavy textbooks, a lap top, and supplies--the organized sections hold everything. Previously, I owned another JanSport for over 20 years but it finally went kaput. JanSport sent me a bereavement note and said it went to backpack heaven and couldn't be repaired, but the company immediately replaced it with another bag. Lifetime warranty means lifetime. That's what I call guaranteed. The durability and the construction is the same as before. It is built to wear and keeps on treking. Other brands do not offer a lifetime guarantee, so my bet is on JanSport."

"My enormous nursing school textbooks eventually broke the first and second school bags I bought, but not this one! Praise God, this bag has held up nicely. One of my classmates has this bag as well, and after 18 months of hauling massive books, hers is in great condition also. We both really like the water bottle pockets on the outside, and the thick study wheels and handle. This bag is perfect for nursing, medical, and pharmacy students with huge textbooks."

"My main criteria for purchasing this bag is it's light weight, and its ability to carry a 17" laptop. I love this bag--use it everyday in my 2 hour commute from NJ to NYC. I've also been able to pack 2 days of clothes, a 17" and 15" laptop (power blocks, mice, external hard drive), toiletries, and sandals on a trip to Atlanta recently. It's tough, has useful compartments, good laptop protection, has good ground clearance, quite water resistant, lightweight, and looks trendy with the cool handle (which is quite long, so you have less tendency to be tripped up when wheeling the bag)."

"My son uses it for school. He brings home heavy textbooks each day and his main classroom is on the second floor. With this backpack, he is able to pull/push it up/down stairs without having to carry a heavy backpack."

"This bag's weight is just right, not flimsy and not heavy -- perfect for carry-on with my 4lb laptop and various other devices to keep the overseas flights a bit more comfortable. The pulling handle is well built. Small drawback is the lack of small zippered compartments inside the front compartment so that I can keep myself a bit more organized and stuff more easily accessible. Laptop is very accessible and well protected. With all things stuffed inside, it still fits under the seat in front of me."
