JanSport Houston 26L Backpack

No problems here.

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.

She loves it

  • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

The bag doesn't sag even when it is full. Very comfortable straps. A lot of pockets. Highly recommended.

Unanswered Question

What color is inside the black Jansport Houston backpack?

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!
