JANSPORT® INTRODUCES ITS NEW SUPERSTRAPTM PACK
New technology developed by JanSport allows for effortless packing, precise fit, comfort and load manageability
San Leandro, Calif., (April 30, 2010) - JanSport, the original outdoor gear Brand that equips people globally with quality backpacks, travel gear and collegiate apparel, today introduced its new SuperStrapTM pack. Made with lightweight nylon, this pack features JanSport's proprietary SuperStrapTM technology; the first system that allows for ease of packing and precise fit while optimizing comfort and load manageability.
Available in Red Tape and Black, JanSport's new SuperStrap pack boasts one large main compartment with zippered side access and a separate, padded and zippered compartment that holds a 15" laptop. Additional features include two sizeable exterior pockets complete with a zippered interior organizer.
Using the JanSport SuperStrap system is easy.
Step 1: Release SuperStrap buckle and loosen straps before fitting to your body.
Step 2: Pull down on the lower straps to cinch underside of bag.
Step 3: Pull down on upper straps to even out the load for a perfect, comfortable fit.
Step 4: For adjusting and fitting different loads, always release the SuperStrap buckle and loosen straps.
"In creating this SuperStrap technology, the challenge was to solve the trouble of heavy, sagging weight in your backpack-weight that pulls you down and hurts your back," says Caelin White, JanSport product designer. "JanSport's new SuperStrap solution literally lifts and compresses all the weight closer to a person's center of gravity, making a heavy backpack feel weightless and allowing you to carry everything you need."
Look for JanSport's new SuperStrapTM pack at select specialty retailers beginning July 2010. For more information, visit www.jansport.com/superstrap.
