Trust is built over time, so for more than 50 years, JanSport has designed packs that last, to go everywhere you go, see what you see, and carry what you need. We stand by the quality and
the durability of every pack we make, and since we’ve been doing that since 1967, that is a guarantee you can stand by.
We build our products to last over extended periods of use, but inevitably everything does eventually wear out. So, when your pack wears out as all things do, you’ll know you’ve gotten the most out of your gear and your experience. JanSport branded products covered by this warranty are warranted to the original owner against manufacturing defects in materials and workmanship for the lifetime of the product, except for certain exclusions identified below.
This warranty applies to all JanSport branded equipment only (e.g., packs, bags, pouches, totes, cases). The warranty does not apply to pins, patches, or related accessories. Please carefully review the exclusions to confirm whether your product is covered. If your product covered by this warranty fails due to a manufacturing defect, we will repair it without charge, or replace it, at our discretion. Only unaltered and unmodified items and original workmanship are covered. This warranty does not cover damage caused by accident, improper care, negligence, normal wear, and tear, or the natural breakdown of colors and materials over extended time and use. Damage not covered under warranty may be repaired for a reasonable rate and a fee will be charged for return shipping.
Defects in materials, components, or workmanship are covered for the lifetime of the product. Materials and components refer to zippers, buckles and fabrics, etc. Workmanship refers to seams and construction. Damage due to normal wear and tear such as rips, tears, abrasion or UV degradation, misuse or neglect is not covered under our warranty policy (as further discussed below).
The products eligible for the lifetime warranty are covered to the original owner, for the lifetime of the product. Unfortunately, this does not mean your lifetime. Inevitably, well used (and well-loved!) products will eventually wear out—fabrics will deteriorate, and colors will fade. Please use your judgment when assessing whether your product is likely to be covered under the warranty policy—it may simply be time to replace it.
Consequently, we will cover your product against defect and malfunction until such a time that it has been used and worn out beyond reasonable repair. This warranty does not cover normal wear and tear or the natural breakdown of colors and materials over extended time and use. “Normal wear and tear” generally mean the wear and tear caused by the expected use of the bag over an extended period of time. There are a few factors that determine the end of “product life”, including the
(1) Fabric—if the fabric is discolored, degraded, de-laminated or deteriorated, we may
determine this to be end of “product life”’;
(2) If a major component fails due to extended use (such as a handle, wheel or zipper) we
may deem the product to have met its full life cycle.

The warranty applies only to JanSport equipment, purchased from authorized dealers. Only equipment, including backpacks, pouches, and other bags, is covered. JanSport does not offer warranties for pins, patches, or related accessories. As an exception to the lifetime warranty, the warranty for JanSport-branded cooler bags is limited to five (5) years, rather than the lifetime of the product.
JanSport is not responsible for direct, incidental or consequential damages for any reason including damage resulting from a breach of a warranty or condition such as scratches in a device surface, lost
data or lost or destroyed personal property. Some states do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitation or exclusion may not apply to you.
Some states do not allow limitations on how long an implied warranty lasts, so the above limitations on the duration of the warranty may not apply to you. This warranty gives you specific legal rights; you may have other rights, which vary from state to state.
