When Jared was little he had a much coveted plastic Batman backpack, coveted to the point that he STILL tells this story as one of the most embarrassing / awful moments of his young life.
Jared’s kindergarten was sectioned off so that the backpacks and shoes were in a different area than everything else. One day his really good friend had to use the washroom, but kept getting passed over by the teacher. Finally the poor kid went around the corner and peed into poor Jared’s backpack, which naturally caused a small childlike riot of taunting.
Jared begged his mom to just wash it out, but alas, the backpack could not be saved. I like to think that JanSport’s Heritage Collection is a killer throwback to those younger days, the styling and vintage labels are just right. The site has some pretty neat (one might even say “gnarly”) 60’s and 70’s photos of the founders. I tip my hat to you JanSport, though there may be no Batman logos, there is also no urine. Yet.
