User Review: JanSport D2
Price Paid: $245
What a great pack! Purchased one as soon as I found out that JanSport was making them again. I collect old JS packs and this bag is outstanding. Why bother with used packs when you can get the cream of the crop right now?
It is extremely close to the design of D2 from 1972. They even have the old style tubular hip arms which are hard to beat for transferring weight to the hips and can be used as a kick stand for the bag. Compared to the original, the zippers are larger on the main compartments which makes it easer to open and can handle more stress.
The shoulder straps are s-curved and superior as well. The seams on the inside are lined to prevent the nylon from fraying.
This bag is truly old school and can haul a ton. Most owners of the original D2s will never part with theirs. You can get a new D2 for less than old ones are selling on eBay. To me, a new D2 is a dream come true and JanSport did it right! Again!
