My external frame Jansport pack. I am one of the few that still prefer an external frame pack for longer trips.
This pack has seen many trails and many views. It is about 50-60L in size. Jansport was the go to name way before Osprey, Northface or any of those.
After many years on the trail it is still being used from time to time. The pignose leather is still superior for strapping on gear.
For me an external frame pack sits on my back and distributes the weight evenly way better than an internal frame. Everyone is different but I still see those external frames out in the field being used today. Occasionally I am stopped on the trail by both old and young. "No way! This guys still using an ol Jansport!" Not only is it one of my favorite packs but it is a great conversation starter as well. It provides fun on the trail!
Lets see what kind of pack you are using. Don't forget to post to the "Trail Heads" channel. Untill next time. Happy trails!!!!!
