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.
