    I miss the old Jester

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size

    I got a Jester backpack my first year of high school (2005) and used it happily up until this year. My original Jester is well worn but still in working condition, 15 years later, but I'm a teacher, and I decided I really wanted a laptop sleeve, so I upgraded to this newer model. Sigh -- I now miss my old pack. The placement of the smaller outside pocket up high is the real downfall of this pack. With this backpack, it is difficult to stuff anything in the big pocket if you have any contents in the smaller pocket. I find that it always falls over and cannot rest leaning on something. My thinner hydro flask fits, but it cuts into the body of the pack. I also can't fit my wide-mouth Nalgene bottle in the water bottle mesh holder like I can with my old Jester. I've been using it for a month now, and it holds what I need (with a lot of stuffing effort), and the straps are comfortable, but I wouldn't purchase it again. I do love the look; I ordered the Aviator Navy Blue color, and it looks exactly as pictured.

    Great Pack!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size

    Bought this pack for school and it has ended up being great for school as well as day hikes. Seems to be built well.

    How to Measure:
    Torso:
    -Have a friend locate the bony bump at the base of your neck, where the slope of your shoulder meets your neck. This is your 7th cervical vertebra (C7). Tilt your head forward to locate it more easily. This is the top of your torso length.
    -Place your hands on top of your hips bones, with fingers point forward, thumbs in back. This it eh "shelf" on which your pack will rest. The middle of an imaginary line drawn between your thumbs is the bottom of your torso length.
    -Using the tape measure, your friend should measure the distance between the C7 and the imaginary line between your thumbs. Be sure you stand up straight when being measured. You know should have your torso length.
    Hipbelt:
    Measure around your waist just above your hips.
