    Comments about JanSport Klamath 75 Internal Frame Pack:

    This is the first internal frame pack I have ever purchased. I did a great deal of research and ended up with this one based on its size and price. At 75 liters, it was much larger than other backpacks out there which were as much as $100 more. I used this pack while section hiking the Appalachian trial. I covered about 40 miles over four days, but in separate 2 day legs. Its hard to say how the pack felt because I'm inexperienced with adjusting it and may have over-packed. In general I was comfortable and able to make adjustments if needed. The major problem I had with this pack was the opening at the top. The drawstring cover over the opening made it hard to see and reach the bottom of the bag easily. Also, the zipper pulls on the bottom access pocket snagged often. Positives include large water bottle pockets on both sides big enough for 1 liter Nalgenes and the large vertical zipper front pocket. Overall, this backpack served my needs well and held up.

    Good pack, taking it to Philmont

      Comments about JanSport Klamath 75 Internal Frame Pack:

      I bought this pack to take to Philmont this summer. I have had it on several prep hikes (minimum 10 miles, loaded), and a couple of overnighters. I will review again after Philmont.

      Overall, it is a good pack. Lots of room. Philmont wants a 75L pack so that they can load you with crew gear. This fills that need.
      At 4 lbs. it is a bit heavy for one primary component of the trip (tent and sleeping gear being the other two), but I couldn't get lighter without spending a considerable amount more.

      The adjustable rack in the back is good for fitting the pack to your body. It rides well when you are hiking. Outside pockets are good for stuff you may need right away (rain gear, pack cover, compass, first aid, etc.). I use the hydration pocket in the lid to store jacket and fleece. I am using Nalgene bottles and won't need the hydration pouch.

      Once again, I will review post-Philmont. Overall I am very pleased with this pack and have recommenced it to others.

      JanSport fans will be delighted with this pack- it's a winner. Lots of room for 7day+ trips, good attention to convenience and comfort without getting kitschy or weird. Some potential durability issues, but easily fall within the parameters of home repair. Good pack at an excellent price.

        Comments about JanSport Klamath 75 Internal Frame Pack:

        Purchased this pack after extensive research. It seemed to fit my needs (price was a major factor), and I couldn't find a single bad review. Immediately used it on a short (2 day) hike on The Knobstone Trail here in Southern Indiana. Had a 30 lb load, and for the most part, I never knew I had it on. This was a major improvement over the ILBE I had been using. The only complaint (and it's a small one) is that, to me, the padding on the hip belt needs to extend just a little further. Of course, I could probably stand to lose a couple of inches there anyway. :) Some stash pockets on the hip belt would be nice too. All in all, it is a nearly perfect lightweight pack for the weekend warrior.

            For the money this was definitely a great starter pack for me. It is easy to load and holds lots of gear. It is really handy having all of the straps and extra pockets to help throw in the little things. i held about 30 Lbs of gear on a 40 mile hike I would highly recommend this pack to anyone if you need the size .But it is probably better to go down a size because you are more likely to put in more item that are just extra weight that you don't really need.

              Bought this pack to use on a backcountry position in California. After using it for two years, I can say it was a decent pack, especially for the cost. I'm happy with it, but there are some minor durability issues.

              Worst was the liner separating the main body of the pack with the external pocket on the back of the pack. After the 1st year, the side of the external pocket lining began to tear and a couple hikes later that was all she wrote. I liked to have things compartmentalized & there's pretty much no ability to keep small items & gear from slipping out of the pocket & down into my pack anymore. Still usable, but a bit less convenient. Also, one of the pull strings for the zipper on the external back pocket snapped, which can make it rather tough to close with a full pack.

              I've used my pack on 3 multi-day trips so far. Two on the AT and one short trail/camping trip. Absolutely no issues with fabric or zippers. In fact, the zipper pulls have a special tab which aids opening in wet or cold weather. The only down side is the bag compartment. It is large, but you need a highly compressible sleeping bag to fit. Side pockets hold lots of accessories and the larger mesh pockets easily hold large H2O bottles. 4.5 stars if that were an option.

              I used this product for a 10 day trip on the John Muir. The bag was a little to narrow to hold my minimal gear and "Bear Can" required for the Yosemite section of the JMT. The pack performed well overall. The material on the inside of the sleeping bag compartment has torn with in three days of using it. I suspect the material was compromised by the backsheet Jansport uses for their internal frame. The only thing I put in that compartment was my soft comfortable sleeping. Also the stitching on the Jansport bag began to separate, showing the threads.

                Comments about JanSport Klamath 75 Internal Frame Pack:

                For travel, I needed something larger than my Jansport day pack. I've had my Jansport for over 12 years, and I knew I wanted to stick with that brand when looking for something larger. I was a little disappointed to see that the Klamath 75 was rated so low on Campmor, but further inspections seemed like the reviewer selected the wrong size. So I decided to just buy it and try it out myself.

                I needed the pack for a specific purpose: camping in Europe. This means that I needed to fit a sleeping mat, sleeping bag, tent, clothes, and provisions _within_ the pack, so that everything would be safe while the bag was tossed around airport baggage handling. I'm happy to report that it all fit and the pack survived the trip.

                My load was bulky, but pretty light. I'm unsure how comfortable this pack would be with a full heavy load, but for me (I'm 5'10") it was pretty comfortable.

                The price is good, styling is nice (not nearly as ugly as the photo!), and construction seems ok. I'm curious to see how it will hold up after a few dozen flights. For the capacity, the pack is pretty light, but I am a little worried that the thinness of the material will result in reduced durability.

                  I have an external frame JanSport that I got a good deal on, that I like. There are 2 problems with it however, one is that the side bags have to be strapped to each other to prevent them from flopping around. The other is the water bladder compartment sits right against your back and is impossible to use. Where is the water bladder compartment on this bag? Thanks,
