JanSport® Launches Four Retro Outdoor Day Packs
Inspired by its heritage, JanSport launches four retro outdoor day packs,
replete with old-school aesthetic and modern-day functionality
San Leandro, Calif., (January 20, 2011) - JanSport®, the original outdoor gear Brand that equips people globally with quality backpacks, travel gear and collegiate apparel, today released four heritage-inspired outdoor day packs. Replete with old-school aesthetic married with modern-day functionality, JanSport's four retro outdoor day packs will keep your gear close at hand whether on the trail or running about town.
JanSport's four retro-inspired outdoor day packs include:
As durable as its namesake, Hobnail Mountain Boots, which featured tricouni and hobnail cleats to provide traction and durability in the alpine environment, the 28L Hobnail pack will take you from point A to B, whether you're on the trail or on the city streets. Pack highlights include padded shoulder straps, two large main compartments, versatile hydration or laptop sleeve and slick side zippered stash pocket.
Named after Wheeler Crest Trail, a scenic route with elevations over 11,000 feet leading to the eastern slopes of the Sierra Nevada, north of Bishop, the 30L pack features one large main compartment with top load entry, padded shoulder straps, and a versatile sleeve designed to fit a 3L hydration sleeve or a 15" laptop, complete with hydration port and top hood pocket.
Named after Powderhorn, a niche apparel brand founded in 1972 in Jackson Hole, WY, known for its signature jackets, the 28L Powderhorn pack features one large main compartment with top load entry, a versatile sleeve designed to fit a 3L hydration sleeve with port or a 15" laptop, leather lashing squares, one front stash pocket and dual front zippered pockets.
Named after Tenaya Lake in Yosemite National Park, the 20L Tenaya is as functional as it is aesthetically pleasing, featuring one large main compartment, padded shoulder straps, a versatile sleeve designed to fit a 3L hydration sleeve or a 15" laptop, leather lashing squares and a front stash pocket.
