You could do worse, but the Jester simply doesn't stand out...

Don't get me wrong, there are a lot of packs worse than this but it is very easy to do better. Performs as well as many similar packs from High Sierra and other third-tier brands, though those packs usually provide more features and cost less. No laptop sleeve, not hydration compatible, no ventilation or back support, no sternum strap, and an utterly useless hipbelt. Returned mine after a month because a stitch had popped out along where the shoulder straps attach and a number of stitches had popped along the mesh water bottle pockets.

Bottom line: If you are a parents of high school and middle school kids looking for something with a TNF logo plastered on that doesn't break the bank, this is your pack. Hikers, climbers, college students, and commuters would be better served looking elsewhere.
