As we strive to bring our customers the best possible selection of JanSport bags and backpacks, we have managed to secure early access to two special editions of JanSport Heritage Series backpacks. Both the Off Trail and the Ski & Hike have been perennial favourites of the Heritage Series and for Spring 2014, JanSport has added two new versions of these backpacks. The Ski & Hike Jacquard and the Off Trail Jacquard.
Both the Ski & Hike and the Off Trail maintain their classic styling cues with the original woven 1967 JanSport logo, antique brass metal zippers and finishings. All the webbing is made with an exclusive Jacquard woven pattern.
The Jacquard name is attributed to the Jacquard loom or Jacquard Weaving. This technique and tool was invented in 1801 by Joseph Marie Jacquard. This allowed complex patterns to be woven into various textiles more simply opening up a world of possibility in the textile production industry.
We must ask the question, do you #twostrap your backpack? Of course two strapping is when one wears both straps of the backpack instead of just hanging it off one shoulder. This style choice was so import that the movie 21 Jump Street dedicated an entire scene to this question. Jonah Hill’s character of course opted to two strap his backpack and his choice was shown to still be true as he was spotted two strapping a JanSport Right Pack on the set of 22 Jump Street which is in production now!
The amazing JanSport Pleasanton is the culmination of over 45 years of experience making high quality bags and backpack. JanSport co-founder Skip Yowell left no detail un-noticed when creating his signature collection and it really shows in the Pleasanton.
