The Jansport Odyssey Backpack is one of the best backpacks around for travel. We’ve used ours for over four years and it’s held up better than we ever expected and most importantly, it carries a ton of stuff and is comfortable to carry.
We’ve travelled through the backcountry of Vietnam, the islands of the Maldives to Palm Springs with the Jansport Odyssey and it’s great. From carrying all of the basics: laptop, phones, power adapters, magazines, books, newspapers and a change of clothes, this bag performs. This bag holds a whopping 2350 cu inches of cargo and the exclusive “air-lift” straps make carrying even the heaviest loads, effortless.
There are plenty of pockets for storage, including a place for pens, key clip and many zippered compartments. The zippers and material of the bag are top notch. You rarely find many Jansport or many other backpack manufacturer’s keep the same bag “series” or “design” around for more than a year or two at most. The fact that this bag has been around for almost five years is a tribute to its success and popularity. We’ve lived with this bag and give it two thumbs up.
