In keeping faithful to our founding vision while evolving with the times, JanSport has cultivated successful partnerships with individuals and organizations. These partnerships are mutually beneficial and assure greater results for all. Though the great outdoors is our core foundation, it has changed substantially in the last forty years. So, we celebrate all definitions of the “great outdoors”, from the reserved wilderness to city and state recreational parks. And we celebrate all outdoor enthusiasts, from those who scale peaks to those who take casual walks through Central Park.
In partnership with our parent company, VF Corporation, JanSport’s success extends around the globe and into walks of life that are as varied as our product offering. Providing world-class products brings the additional business and moral obligation of ensuring safe, ethical and lawful manufacturing conditions. To achieve positive results, JanSport has adopted the code of conduct of the Fair Labor Association (FLA).
Our goal at JanSport is to design, engineer, manufacture and market products that can help you get from point A to point B, wherever that may be. And we want to help you get there in the most functional way possible. We’re well aware that the backpack that carries your books to school might need to be the same backpack that carries your gear on a Saturday day hike, so we incorporate flexibility into each and every design. It’s what JanSport has been doing consistently for nearly forty years and it’s the concept that drives us today.
