User Review: JanSport Alaska 115
Source: bought it new
Price Paid: $140
- Very tough and sturdy
- Lots of space
- Lots of buckles and attachments for external gear lashing
- Like the color scheme
- Is a bit heavy, but that is what you get with well-built packs
I bought this pack as an affordable option when compared to other packs in its class and I haven't been at all disappointed. I have used it on numerous trips and it has always exceeded my expectations.
The seams are tough and the pack is well constructed. The interior waterproofing has peeled off after 12 years of use, but it outlasted my expectations. I did break one of the waist buckles after overloading the pack, but other than that I have had no issues (truth be told after ten years of use and overloading the buckle that is to be expected).
If this pack weren't disc. I would buy another one in a heartbeat as a backup. Great pack! Will be using it for years to come.
