Stay Comfortable And Organized While Hauling Your Stuff Through The Backcountry.
Whether you're spending a weekend or a full week working your way through backcountry trails, head out with the JanSport Klamath 65 Backpack. This 67-liter capacity backpack combines a supportive suspension system, torso and shoulder fit adjustability, and an array of functional pockets to keep you comfortable and organized out on the trail. The backpack's GridFit system allows you to adjust the length of the torso from 15 to 19 inches, as well as set your preferred shoulder strap width. Once you have that dialed, fine-tune the fit of the padded shoulder straps, hip-belt, and sternum straps for optimal load balance. Make final load-balancing and load-securing adjustments with the bottom and multiple side compression straps.
Once you're moving on the trail, a plastic sheet and aluminum stays running along your back support your load as well as keep items inside the backpack from rubbing up against you. The back panel is fully padded, and includes a ventilating channel for enhanced comfort. The large main compartment with a drawstring closure provides plenty of room for your tent and bear canister, and keep your sleeping bag in a separate zippered compartment with an internal shelf (for holding whatever else you want to separate out with your sleeping bag). Store smaller items you'd like quick access to in the easy-access pockets on the hip-belt, sides, front, and hood. A dedicated internal compartment holds up to a 3-liter hydration reservoir (not included), and includes a port for the tube. The shoulder straps are outfitted to hold the reservoir tube securely in place so it stays out of your way. If you're taking the backpack on a plane trip to your ultimate destination, large carry and haul handles make it easier to manage during your travels.

Editors’ Choice Snow 2014: JanSport Klamath 55, 65, 75 Backpacks
We’re accustomed to compromises with packs big and durable enough for year-round use. Too heavy. Not enough features. Too expensive. Enter the no-compromise Klamath. Not only does this top-loader deliver unbeatable performance for the price, it also has one of the best adjustment systems we’ve seen. After an expedition to Russia’s Mt. Elbrus, one tester called the Klamath “hands down the best-fitting pack I’ve worn.” The suspension lets you dial in fit by adjusting both torso length and shoulder width. And unlike some adjustment systems, which compromise stability, the Klamath’s plastic grid system (holes allow you to move attachment points) feels rock-solid under a load. “Good back padding makes it very comfortable,” adds one tester. And another, who skied Oregon’s Mt. Thielson, says load transfer is superb, thanks to the stiff framesheet and aluminum stay. The 75-liter model proved plenty big for a 50-pound load of expedition gear on Elbrus, and the 55 was perfect for a shorter trip up the Emmons Glacier on Mt. Rainier. Features like a sleeping bag compartment, front pocket, side bottle pockets, and zippered access to the main bag keep cold-weather gear organized
