Jansport Messenger Style School Bags

Updated on July 28, 2013

Perfect Messenger School Bags for the On-The-Go High School or College Student

High school and college students have significantly different types of schedules, but in both cases, a reliable school bag can be an important tool. For the high school student, transport of books from one class to the next doesn't always include a path past one's locker, so it's essential to have a good school bag for heavy books, supplies, and other needed materials.

College students, meanwhile, have widely varied schedules. Often, the distance between classes and buildings is significant, and there isn't always time to return to the dorm, or to one's vehicle. From one semester to the next, things will vary, but a good quality school bag ensures that you'll be able to get from one point, to the next, with everything you need.

Jansport

Jansport is a top provider of backpacks, and school bags, at the college level. During my own college years, this was THE brand available in student bookstores. That same quality extends to Jansport messenger bags, which are available in simple, or colorful designs.

Carrying Comfort

Messenger bags provide comfortable carrying options, whether crossbody or over the shoulder. Roomy bags have plenty of space for a laptop, for the college student who needs to carry a computer on campus. Organizationally, the messenger bag is a bit neater than a backpack, particularly if many materials are to be carried.

Finding great Jansport styles, colors and designs....

Some things don't change. I was at a pool party with a bunch of kids, and a tween was complimented on her zebra swimsuit. She expounded on its colorful features. "It's colorful!" My experience with many middle school girls is that wild color choices can be their favorite options. You know your child, and you know whether a design like that featured here will fly, but in my observations, the tween years are a time of testing and pushing the edges. While in behaviors, this might be challenging, in fashion it can be downright fun to see how choices and interests play out.

Although the bag pictured isn't a messenger, it's good to keep alternatives in mind. If you are dealing with a tween, for example, then middle school management of books and belongings may be augmented by a positive attitude, reflected in styles and colors. If you are dealing with a high school student, there will be a significant priority on personal taste, and seeing might just sway opinion. The example shown is available in many more solid and colorful motifs and designs. Similarly, the messengers shown on this page will lead to multiple color choices. Check them out for reviews and similar offerings.

This is a pretty variation, combining the popularity of plaid with the whimsy of tie dye. Great for the middle school student or high school girl.

 

Lavender Messenger Bag - Colorful School Bag Options with Elefunk

The Elefunk bag is a popular option from the notable manufacturer. I love this example because the colors are subtle but pretty. It's ideal for the high school or college student. There are many more examples and color choices available in this line, perfect for enabling you to find something truly personal and appropriate.

The crossbody style is suitable for students with big books or lots of books. You can distribute weight more evenly without a lot of trouble with a bag slipping off of your shoulder. I carried both a crossbody bag and a backpack during a trip to my daughter's campus, and the backpack was a constant burden, while the crossbody pack never needed to be adjusted. Save their backs some pain and trouble!

Solid Color Messengers from Jansport

You can find some simple, solid colored messenger bags in the Elefunk line from Jansport, as well. Navy, shown here, is tasteful, and perfect as a unisex messenger bag. The benefit of a solid colored bag is that it's versatile when color choices and trends change. If you need something for campus life, this is ideal for getting your laptop safely to the library or to class. You can fit books, notebooks and more, and you can get to your class without having to readjust constantly.
