We’re all about graphic prints this summer season from florals to donuts (yep, donuts), so we’ve teamed up with lifestyle photographer and designer, Hannah Minkner, to create images featuring some of our favorite prints.

Follow @JanSport and #LifeUnzipped on Instagram as we post a new series of images every week. Follow Hannah’s beautiful, dreamy world @minkmade.

Check out the first series of pictures by Hannah highlighting the Lucky Daisy print featured on the DigiBreak backpack.

We recently had the opportunity to spend two consecutive weekends with long-standing partner, Philmont Scout Ranch in scenic Cimarron, New Mexico.  Every summer, Philmont Scout Ranch sees more than 23,000 Scouts from around the country, where they take part in backcountry adventures.  Throughout its existence, conscientious attention to low-impact camping techniques has helped maintain the Ranch’s wilderness.

Every year, JanSport looks forward to Memorial Day. Not just for a day off work but because JanSport for the last several years has had the honor of sponsoring and attending, Telluride Mountainfilm, America’s longest running film festival.

Since 1979, Telluride Mountainfilm is one of America’s longest-running film festivals. Through the years, the festival has always been best described by one unchanging word: inspiring. Far more than any other adjective, that’s how festival audiences describe their experience.

In addition to screening leading independent documentary films from around the world, the festival includes a full-day symposium on a contemporary issue, art and photography exhibits, early morning coffee talks, outdoor programs, a book-signing party, an ice cream social, student programs and a closing awards ceremony. Presentations and panels [...] Read More >

With millions of people visiting the outdoors each year, never before has there been such a need for Leave No Trace education.  In response, the Leave No Trace Center for Outdoor Ethics has selected 12 scenic and popular sites as “Hot Spots.”  Hot Spots have experienced visitor-created impacts including excessive trash, damage to vegetation and trees, trail erosion, and disturbance to wildlife.  These Hot Spots, part of Leave No Trace’s new, multi-year campaign, Leave No Trace in Every Park, will bring Leave No Trace to [...] Read More >
