Jansport D2

I have been looking for another Jansport D2 to come on the market for 15 years. I'm old school too and I had two D2's in the late 70's and 80's and loved them. One of them had the loop handles and I loved it. I just bought a Gregory Baltoro 75 and didn't know the D2 was in production again. I thought about cancelling the Baltoro 75, but after reading some of the reviews about the quality and not having nylon bushings, and not having a water bladder I've talked myself out of it. I long for the day, and like the rest of you will probably never see the original D2 reintroduced. What a loss...I can only give it 3 stars for nostalga sake because I don't think I will be buying a new D2.

I'm not totally clear, but it looks like a lot of people are rating this product without ever seeing it in person.

CJ,I do not need to see the pack in person. The photo above clearly shows that the hip suspension system uses a metal on metal attachment. The original D2 of which I have 3, has a nylon bushing at each attachment point for the hip carry loops.

I don't like the color but that is just me. It really is not a negative.

I have looked at every outdoor store in Phoenix. None have carried the new D2.
