    Comments about JanSport SKI AND HIKE BACKPACK:

    I've used this backpack as a small day bag when going out backpacking. The best thing about this bag is how lightweight, durable and compact it is when folded. Typically I head out on a trip with a much larger (85L) backpacking pack, always with this inside scrunched up in a little ball. Then, when going hiking for the day, it's my go to for a water bottle, food and small gadgets that I put inside the small pocket.

    In addition to this, I use this bag almost daily for my 13" laptop, a notebook, some pens, a charger and a few other small things. Everything fits well and I have no problem accessing it.

    The only negative thing I can say about this backpack is that the front zipper on the outside pocket had a tendency to take in the protective fabric that went over it - the small lip of fabric that hides the zipper from view. I managed to solve this problem by supergluing the piece of fabric down. Other than that small comment, this is a great bag - one that I think will last a long time and can be used for a variety of uses.

      Comments about JanSport SKI AND HIKE BACKPACK:

      I used this backpack mostly for school and I really enjoyed using it. I like it because it was so different from the backpacks you normally see at school and I've gotten a lot of complements on it ( I have the Orange backpack, which i should add that it stained really easily). The backpack is made of pretty good quality nylona nd I really liked the brass zippers and seatbelt straps (which were surprisingly very comfortable). I didn't really like that it has synthetic leather on the bottom. It may not be for everyone though because it is "minimalistic" AKA it has not pockets or compartments inside of the backpack itself which proved to be kindof a hassle. Also, it was kinda difficult to fit notebooks inside of it because it doesn't have any support to keep it upright and the backpack itself is pretty small too. I haven't taken it hiking but it would probably most effective for people who want to travel light. Overall I thought this backpack was great if you want to stand out and be original but its not the most practical backpack in the world.
