ski & hike pack circa 1969
The year was 1967, the Summer of Love. The Summer three Seattle college grads were looking to avoid the confines of nine-to-five jobs: Skip, an outdoor enthusiast; Murray, an engineer; and Jan, a seamstress. Murray had won an award for an aluminum frame pack design and told Jan if she created a pack to fit the frame that sold, he'd marry her and name the company after her. She did. It did. And JanSport was born. Forty-four years later, JanSport reignites the Summer of '67 with its new Heritage Series, a modern and honest re-issue of its original silhouettes, reflecting the outdoor functionality and aesthetics at the core of the Brand.
