Looking for a performance day pack loaded with pockets, great features, and serious protection for your digital stuff? This is it. The Odyssey is one of our most popular outdoor packs and a consistent JanSport best seller. Why? So many reasons. And that’s before we even think about looks. With its modern design and bold contrasting colors, this pack is a great looking piece of gear.
Why We Love It
The Odyssey is a beautifully engineered day pack with high-performance features for your digital stuff and outdoor gear. This pack isn’t just versatile, it’s rugged and really roomy. Two large compartments give you a ton of cargo capacity and easy access to your big stuff. The main compartment has a tricot-lined sleeve for your tablet and a padded sleeve to hold a 15-inch laptop computer or a 3 liter hydration system. On the front, you’ve got a deluxe utility pocket with organizer for your small gear, gadgets, and everyday essentials, plus a zippered stash pocket. There’s also a quick access loft pocket on top. This pack is as comfortable as it is functional thanks to the ergonomic AirCore™ shoulder straps, sternum strap, and tuck-away hipbelt. With two side mesh water-bottle pockets, you can stay hydrated throughout the day without slowing down. The bright red, daisy chain quick-clip points, gear loop, and side compression straps give you extra functionality—and extra style points. And that die-cut hypalon grab handle makes it easy to lift, even when filled to capacity. Be sure to zoom in close on the fabric. It’s weatherproof, durable, and looks cool too. The Odyssey in Navy Moonshine / Blue Streak, a stylish combo of blues, black and red, is a great looking backpack. And it’s built for the long haul whether that’s up a steep trail, down a crowded street—or both.
