Bought these boots to wear to class!
5 5

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: True to size
Height: 5' 11"
Weight: 167 lbs
Size Purchased: Size 11

The day I got the package with these boots it was pouring rain, I was stoked. I ordered the black pair, but saw the anchor pair in a store and those were really cute, too! I had plans to go out with friends that night and was pleasantly surprised that they fit my wide calves easily over my skinny jeans. I looked so fly and the gold buckles matched my bling gold watch. The microfleece lining is just enough to keep them comfy without getting too toasty.
Unfortunately these dang boots turned out to be really practical as well as classy. I started wearing them to take the dog for walks in our back field, shoveling snow, and generally just sloshing around in muck. They have lost a little of their glossy black luster after weeks of abuse. I should have known I couldn't be that fancy girl that wears rubber boots to class on rainy days, but I love these boots more than I thought possible.

I didn't get this big guy from backcountry.com, but it's the replacement that Jansport sent me after I sent my Klamath 68 in for repairs.
It weighs 1lb more than the Klamath 68 (why?!?!), the brain is no longer detachable, the padding on the waist belt feels bigger, and the overall waist belt is much larger ( I have it cranked almost all the way down, and I'm not a tiny girl!).
Overall looks well made, like all Jansport bags. There is a zipper mesh pocket on the waist belt that should come in handy. If you're a petite person this is not your bag. I've loved my Jansport Klamath's in the past more than anything, I've had Osprey's and the big names but these have held up better than those. I haven't trail tested it yet because I'm waiting to see if Jansport will let me switch this for something else.

Love it! I tuck my alcohol stove and windscreen right inside - makes a great light weight cooking system. I used this for the 2nd half of my AT thru hike. Other hikers were surprised when I told them the price! I could even cook 2 packs of ramen in it (it's a bit full but you can do it!). I would like to see this with a longer handle - if Backcountry redesigns it I would buy it again and again!
