    Great Jansport Quality, Fantastic price compared with packs of similar quality, August 26, 2009

    I found this pack when looking at Amazon for a pack for a trip I had been planning. I noticed that other brands like Teton and CUSCUS had poor reviews, and I didn’t want a disposable pack where i’d be sewing straps back on after my trip, UGH! I noticed that this pack didn’t have any reviews here yet. But my family has already had great experiences with Jansport standard back packs and wheeled school bags, and I knew they made durable products. So, I figured I’d try this pack out for my hiking/camping trip. And for an 80 liter (4900 cu in) pack, it had a pretty good price compared to similar quality packs.

    After MY trip, I am happy to say THIS PACK ROCKS!

    The pack is just over 4lbs (I weighed mine at 4.3, though the description says 4.1 and 4lbs 12oz in separate places), that’s light in comparison to other similar capacity packs. The material is very study, and the stitching is quality work like you see in all Jansport products. The straps and zippers are heavy duty and I can tell they’re not going to rip off or break. There’s plenty of cinching straps to keep the load compact and tight when the pack isn’t filled to capacity. The waist belt did a wonderful job of keeping the 25 – 30lbs of gear and pack weight on my hips and off my shoulders on my trip. It seemed as if the shoulder straps were only needed to keep the pack from wobbling from side to side or tipping backwards, as there seemed to be almost zero downward pressure exerted on my shoulders by them. As this is an external frame pack, there was a much loved tiny air gap between me and pack, which kept my upper back comfy and dry on the hikes. There is a fabric panel divider which creates a separate compartment in the bottom interior of the pack for what I believe to be a sleeping bag, which fit my 30 degree Coleman with no problems. As you can see in the pictures, the bottom exterior of the pack has strap attachment points (4 eyelets), to attach your sleeping bag by it’s compression straps, or a mattress(which was my choice), tent, etc. The pack allows for 3 separate points of adjustment to accomodate different body lengths… the waist belt height, the shoulder strap bar height, and the padded foam lumbar support . The pack has 2 openings. One is at the head end which is a draw string type which extends the pack capacity upward, if needed, an extra 6 to 8 inches or so and is covered by a height adjustable pocketed lid. The second is a large zippered one on the back side. The opening on the back side has 2 parallel zippers that run almost the entire length of the pack. You can open the zippers one at a time for quick access to smaller items, or open them both for an 8 inch wide or so opening down the length of the pack for quick packing and uppacking of larger items like sleeping bags pots and pans, etc. There are forward angled water bottle pockets on each side of the pack, AND A ZIPPERED HYDRATION BLADDER COMPARTMENT located in the gap created by the frame between the pack and your body, which I don’t see listed as one of the features of this pack in the product description…. an added bonus! As you can see in the pictures, there are 2 large external side compartments perfect for stashing utensils, first aid kits, knives, flashlights, lighter, cups, bowls, toiletries, etc, that you may need quick access to. And like all Jansport packs, this one comes with the LIFETIME WARRANTY for free repair or replacement, which is also not listed in the product description.

    You get alot of bang for the buck with this pack. I highly recommend it. I like it so much i’m buying my teenage son one as well to replace his old hiking pack.

    One of the highest value external frame backpacks on the market., June 22, 2010

    Amazon Verified Purchase(What’s this?)

    I originally wanted to go with a Kelty but all of their larger external frames are ugly reds and blues. I got the cilantro green Jansport Carson and I absolutely love it. It is a much darker and a bit more green than the amazon picture of it. Jansport’s website is closer to the real color Since the reviewers before me gave a lot of great information I’ll just keep it short and say that this is a great, comfortable backpack that distributes weight very well and has lots of lashing capabilities. It is built very well and I think it will last a lifetime.

    This bag fit everything I needed to carry for my week long trip into the NH White Moutains. I can see why the Rangers switched from the Alice pack to this type of backpack; it has an external frame, it is easy to use, light weight, and comfortable.
