Simplicity rules.

JanSport kept things nice and simple when creating the Big Bear 78 Backpack, so you’re not packing around any extra pockets or overkill suspension features when you hike. A single aluminum stay and molded framesheet join the S-curve shoulder straps to provide serious support. Two side pockets keep your water bottle within easy reach, and JanSport added a large front stash pocket where you can cram a shell, lunch, and maybe some extra layers.

Jansport Big Bear 78

I bought this pack on a definate budget. I was nervous about my budget because the pack I was going to buy has to last for 2 months on the AT. I've taken it out for a couple days at a time on overnighters and weekenders carrying extra weight just to see how it took it. This included the mummy bag, 2 sacks of clothes, mess kit, first aid/hygiene bag,camp shoes, fishing gear,flashlights and 3 liters of water (about 40 lbs total). The suspension is great, the features (while minimal) are great. It does have a pouch inside that carries a 3 liter water bladder. I trust it fully and I'm ready to go on the longer trip now. My friend has this in green, I have it in black. We both share the opinion that, for the price, this pack can't be beat. is the way to go.
