    We've all had those schedules—leave the apartment by 7 o'clock only to return long after dark—but with the JanSport Houston Backpack there's no need to sweat. The main compartment offers plenty of space for a laptop, tablet, and books, so you'll be able to take all the provisions you need to make it through the day. A vertical zipper on the front gives you access to a large front pocket that's perfect for storing a planner and other flat items. Stash your sunglasses, wallet, and other smaller essentials in the two front zippered pockets for easy access throughout the day.

    What do you think about this product?

    Have questions about this product?

    can i use this backpack for a hike?

    can i use this backpack for a hike?

    I have day hiked with some free spirits who have used had stitched silk slings as their packs, so I guess the answer for this pack is yes you could, but thats my teacher's response to "Can I go to the bathroom?"



    Personally, I wouldn't take this pack hiking and this is why:



    No vented back

    No hydration compatibility

    No external pockets to even hold a bottle of water.



    What I would use this for is to carry my MacBook Pro and my Abnormal Psychology textbook in between classes.

    Brian I would second Wayne, I would not use this as a day pack for a hike. I do a fair amount of hiking and backpacking and the features of this pack just don't really fit into what you would want for a day pack. May I recommend something with a waist belt strap. I would recommend a pack like the Osprey Talon 22, it is a really good day pack that I have used, it can double as a backpack for other occasions but I would just is it for backpacking or day hiking. The camelback Mule is also a good one but it is a little bit smaller and would not work for school as it would not fit books. Hope this helps you out!
