Perfect for weekend excursion

Comments about Jansport Katahdin 40-Liter Backpack:

This back pack is light weight yet nice and durable. It seems small but it actually fits a lot of stuff. The pockets are well designed and in the right places to carry small umbrella, rain jackets, canteens, cell phone etc. I like the draw string that closes the bag and the snaps that keep the bag closed. There is a clever zip pocket on the top where I can keep my iPad mini. The bag also opens on the bottom in case you need to pull something out quickly. The straps are easily adjustable and comfortable. The material performed nicely for hot beach weather and the bag fit well enough under the seat of the airplane. It did not rain so I don't know if it's waterproof. If it is, than it can have 5 Stars for the modest price I paid. It was perfect for my weekend getaway to the Caribbean.

Great day pack

By Jon the Backpacker

Comments about Jansport Katahdin 40-Liter Backpack:

I purchased this pack because I was in the market for a day backpack and having used several Jansport packs in the past I saw no reason to switch brands. The Jansport Katahdin 40l works great for a day on the trail or even a simple overnight campout. Alternatively it can also double as an easy travel bag and should work as an airplane carry-on depending on how stuffed it is. My favorite feature is by far the side loading option for the main compartment. Even my monstrously huge Jansport Klamath 75l doesn't have that feature.

Just so you know this pack is a little on the small side if you are looking for a more hefty day pack. I'd place it at slightly more room than the average large college or school backpack. However, if you are a serious minimalist and looking for something for single overnights then I think this will work for ya.
