JanSport's Surplus Ski n' Hike line is the first backpack collection from the brand that's made entirely from excess factory materials that would have otherwise gone to landfill. The range gives new life to 100% surplus materials and helps to make the most of unused materials from previous seasons.
The collection shares styles in Vintage Pink, Red Tape and Forge Grey colors, all of which are limited-edition. From the fabrics to the lining and the zipper pulls to ladder locks, every component of the backpacks taps into pre-existing factory materials. The backpacks specifically speak to Gen Z consumers who are passionate about activism and sustainability.
This new line continues the brand's commitment to sustainability through the use of 100% recycled paper for product hangtags, mindful processing and manufacturing and supporting efficient and renewable energy sources.
