    Everything you need at a price you can afford.

    You're committed to that overnight backpacking trip, and now you need to find a comfortable pack that won't break the bank. Look no further than the modestly priced and fully featured JanSport Katahdin 40L Backpack. The EVA foam back panel, hip-belt, and shoulder straps provide the comfort you need for a long day on the trail, while the top-loading main compartment has ample space to stow your camping gear. 

    The rugged 600D fabric is tough to withstand the rigors of life in the wilderness. A hydration sleeve holds your hydration bladder or can be used as a laptop compartment when you're in town, and the cushy shoulder straps have hydration tube straps to keep your water in place. A sternum strap and padded waist belt keep your pack comfortably and securely in place so it's not constantly shifting and throwing you off balance. Multiple pockets help you keep smaller items organized so you don't have to sift through all your stuff every time you need a snack or sunglasses. Compression straps at the lid help you cram everything in, and mesh side pockets offer a little extra space for whatever still doesn't fit.

    Uber-light, plenty of pockets.

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    This is a great 40-liter pack for overnight camping trips and weekend outings. There's a bunch of organizational compartments for stuffing your water bottles, hygienic items, extra snacks, and miscellaneous gear. Probably best if you're using lightweight camping equipment, as it's not the biggest at just 40-liters. However, I can fit my lightweight sleeping bag, alongside a relatively bulky tent that's probably best served on car camping trips.

    The overall construction seems a bit lightweight, with the straps being super-thin. This is nice for avoiding extra heft, yet I'm slightly concerned with the overall build quality if it's being crammed to full capacity. I'm sure it'll hold up for a season or two and it's priced much cheaper than other offerings. I'd consider these factors when making your decision.

    Comfortable/Light Weight

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Took this backpack on my 10 day camping trip around Iceland and on numerous hiking trips and I love it! I'm prone to back pain and found extreme comfort when wearing this backpack for up to 2 hours at a time. My Elevation Sleeping Pad fit perfectly in one of the water bottle pockets along with 10 days worth of clothes, one pair of shoes, and my sleep bag.
