Suits My Needs

For travel, I needed something larger than my Jansport day pack. I've had my Jansport for over 12 years, and I knew I wanted to stick with that brand when looking for something larger. I was a little disappointed to see that the Klamath 75 was rated so low on Campmor, but further inspections seemed like the reviewer selected the wrong size. So I decided to just buy it and try it out myself.

I needed the pack for a specific purpose: camping in Europe. This means that I needed to fit a sleeping mat, sleeping bag, tent, clothes, and provisions _within_ the pack, so that everything would be safe while the bag was tossed around airport baggage handling. I'm happy to report that it all fit and the pack survived the trip.

My load was bulky, but pretty light. I'm unsure how comfortable this pack would be with a full heavy load, but for me (I'm 5'10") it was pretty comfortable.

The price is good, styling is nice (not nearly as ugly as the photo!), and construction seems ok. I'm curious to see how it will hold up after a few dozen flights. For the capacity, the pack is pretty light, but I am a little worried that the thinness of the material will result in reduced durability.

Solid pack but some durability issues

Bought this pack to use on a backcountry position in California. After using it for two years, I can say it was a decent pack, especially for the cost. I'm happy with it, but there are some minor durability issues.

Worst was the liner separating the main body of the pack with the external pocket on the back of the pack. After the 1st year, the side of the external pocket lining began to tear and a couple hikes later that was all she wrote. I liked to have things compartmentalized & there's pretty much no ability to keep small items & gear from slipping out of the pocket & down into my pack anymore. Still usable, but a bit less convenient. Also, one of the pull strings for the zipper on the external back pocket snapped, which can make it rather tough to close with a full pack.

JanSport Klamath 75 Pack

Purchased this pack after extensive research. It seemed to fit my needs (price was a major factor), and I couldn't find a single bad review. Immediately used it on a short (2 day) hike on The Knobstone Trail here in Southern Indiana. Had a 30 lb load, and for the most part, I never knew I had it on. This was a major improvement over the ILBE I had been using. The only complaint (and it's a small one) is that, to me, the padding on the hip belt needs to extend just a little further. Of course, I could probably stand to lose a couple of inches there anyway. :) Some stash pockets on the hip belt would be nice too. All in all, it is a nearly perfect lightweight pack for the weekend warrior.

Great pack for the money

For the money this was definitely a great starter pack for me. It is easy to load and holds lots of gear. It is really handy having all of the straps and extra pockets to help throw in the little things. i held about 30 Lbs of gear on a 40 mile hike I would highly recommend this pack to anyone if you need the size .But it is probably better to go down a size because you are more likely to put in more item that are just extra weight that you don't really need.

I have an older version of this pack and tried on a bunch of different packs before I decided on this one. The biggest thing I was looking for in a pack was it's weight. This was by far the lightest pack I tried on and had all of the features I wanted. I have been very happy with it and would recommend it to everyone! I wouldn't recommend the Buckthorn Brown color though. I don't know what Jansport was thinking when they made a pack in that color. Blah...

Great Pack with an honest price!

I've used my pack on 3 multi-day trips so far. Two on the AT and one short trail/camping trip. Absolutely no issues with fabric or zippers. In fact, the zipper pulls have a special tab which aids opening in wet or cold weather. The only down side is the bag compartment. It is large, but you need a highly compressible sleeping bag to fit. Side pockets hold lots of accessories and the larger mesh pockets easily hold large H2O bottles. 4.5 stars if that were an option.

Great Trek

I took this pack to Haiti for 2 weeks and just finished a 90 mile hike in New Mexico. I found this pack to be very comfortable and plenty roomy. I had to trade half way through with someone who was carrying a Kelty RedCloud that did not fit well. I found the Jansport pack to be much much more comfortable.

GOOD Value for a Pack!

JanSport fans will be delighted with this pack- it's a winner. Lots of room for 7day+ trips, good attention to convenience and comfort without getting kitschy or weird. Some potential durability issues, but easily fall within the parameters of home repair. Good pack at an excellent price.

Great Pack

This person ahead of me needs to quit complaining. The advertisements describes the adjustment lengths. Dont blame the pack.

Got a deal!

A great buy at the price Campmor offer it.

Negative Reviews:

Return or burn?

Wearing this product was torture. I bought this bag because it was adjustable, but it is adjustable if you are a tall person, not someone who is 5'3". The metal stay/support dug into my tailbone causing me terrible pain on a recent climb up Rainier. Even adjusted for the shortest setting the weight was still being carried on my shoulders and not on my hips. The only reason why I didn't have to come off the mountain is because a taller individual on my climb offered to switch packs. I had been in tears, she was just in a good deal of pain. Our guide offered to give me a container of gas to set it aflame once we got back to ground.

Headline for product misleading

I used this product for a 10 day trip on the John Muir. The bag was a little to narrow to hold my minimal gear and "Bear Can" required for the Yosemite section of the JMT. The pack performed well overall. The material on the inside of the sleeping bag compartment has torn with in three days of using it. I suspect the material was compromised by the backsheet Jansport uses for their internal frame. The only thing I put in that compartment was my soft comfortable sleeping. Also the stitching on the Jansport bag began to separate, showing the threads.
