I really have no big complaints about this bag. It was very reasonable in price, placement of the compartments makes sense, and JanSport has a lifetime warranty!


  • Lightweight
  • Durable
  • Roomy
  • Nice zippers


  • Compartment(s) on the waist belt would be nice

This bag is very comfortable on long trips. It's very roomy and when it's all packed correctly, it's nice and balanced. The straps are nice and sturdy, and the zippers work well and are smooth (they don't get stuck much at all).

Compartment locations make sense, and everything is pretty easy to access. I like the big pocket on the front of the pack. It holds some pretty large stuff. 

At first, the material seems a little thin, but it holds up, and it makes the pack lighter. It also comes with JanSport's lifetime warranty, which makes the price seem even better.

Only complaint would be a small one, that a waist belt compartment would be nice.

I haven't used it in wet conditions yet, so I can't comment on its water resistance.

Remove yourself from the humdrum of your daily life, and head out into the backcountry for a week with the amply-sized, trail-readyJanSport Klamath 75 backpack. This 77-liter capacity backpack combines a supportive suspension system, torso and shoulder fit adjustability, and an array of functional pockets to keep you comfortable and organized out on the trail. The backpack's GridFit system allows you to adjust the length of the torso from 15 to 19 inches, as well as set your preferred shoulder strap width. Once you have that dialed, fine-tune the fit of the padded shoulder straps, hip-belt, and sternum straps for optimal load balance. Make final load-balancing and load-securing adjustments with the bottom and multiple side compression straps. Once you're moving on the trail, a plastic sheet and aluminum stays running along your back support your load as well as keep items inside the backpack from rubbing up against you. The back panel is fully padded, and includes a ventilating channel for enhanced comfort. The large main compartment with a drawstring closure provides plenty of room for your tent and bear canister, and keep your sleeping bag in a separate zippered compartment with an internal shelf (for holding whatever else you want to separate out with your sleeping bag). Store smaller items you'd like quick access to in the easy-access pockets on the hip-belt, sides, front, and hood. A dedicated internal compartment holds up to a 3-liter hydration reservoir (reservoir not included), and includes a port for routing the tube. The shoulder straps are outfitted to hold the reservoir tube securely in place so it stays out of your way. If you're taking the backpack on a plane trip to your ultimate destination, large carry and haul handles make it easier to manage during your travels.
