Five Star® Backpack + Insulated Storage – Students often take their lunches, snacks, and drinks on-the-go to help power through their busy schedules. The Five Star® Backpack + Insulated Storage gives students a vital place to safely keep their food without taking up coveted backpack real estate and the fear of a book-crushed PB&J or crumbly chips. In addition to keeping snacks and drinks cold, the patent-pending main compartment expands to create four inches of additional storage space, allowing students to quickly and easily find their supplies. The Five Star® Backpack + Insulated Storage also features adjustable padded straps to provide support, a padded front panel for extra protection, and a separate padded compartment to keep laptops safe and secure. There are also several pockets in the front compartment to help keep smaller items organized, including a calculator, and a mesh side pocket to securely hold a water bottle.
