JanSport Launches in South Africa

I spent a number of years in the US growing up and school there was synonymous with a few things:

  1. Repeating the word chimpanzee to amuse my American friends with my ‘funny accent’
  2. Praying for snow days so we could spend the day out of class and playing ice-hockey on the lake
  3. JanSport backpacks

I was pretty excited when JanSport contacted me recently to let me know they’ve launched in South Africa and will be available via A-Store (Cape Town) and Due South stores nationwide. The brand launched in Seattle in 1967 by manufacturing world-class outdoor backpacks. Today the product offering includes technical outdoor gear, day-packs, travel gear and collegiate decorated apparel, sold in sporting goods stores, college bookstores, department stores and specialty and boutique retail locations throughout the world. The JanSport team kindly sent me this backpack, a nice change to my repertoire of  all things black and grey.
