The Original Right Pack

Getting everything in order for the new term seems to be on everyone’s minds lately. With the next semester sneaking up, getting top-quality supplies couldn’t be more important.

We’ve always been big fans of the JanSport Right Pack. It’s big enough to fit a laptop or stash a few textbooks, but never feels bulky or over-sized. The pockets are perfect for keeping smaller items organized, while the padded straps keep your shoulders in tip-top shape.

Imagine our surprise when we discovered that this bag we’re so fond of was actually invented by college students! Back in the late 1960’s, a few friends from the University of Washington were looking for a way to keep their things dry despite the rainy Seattle weather. A few years later, the Right Pack was born. With its signature suede and sturdy leather bottom, the Right Pack has endured the test of time (and rightfully so!).

We love hearing tales of success and JanSport’s origins are just that. With their business first set up above a transmission shop, their team has come a long way. Their story just goes to show that a dream, an idea, and hard work go a long way.
