The best rucksack I've had,
This review is from: JanSport Essence II Backpack (Apparel)
Over the years, I've bought a variety of rucksacks but I've not seen the point in spending too much on them as essentially they look the same. How wrong I was. I've been disappointed by bags that have ripped, zips stopped working, handles have snapped, not enough pockets etc. This rucksack is exactly what I've been searching for. It was probably double what I would normally spend on a rucksack, but well worth every penny. The zips are robust, the handles are lovely and padded, there are lots of pockets (too many for me as I keep forgetting what I've put in each one!). Pockets on the outside for your water. It feels like it will last for years. My 1 small gripe is I wish a couple of the pockets had additional security. I used this on a recent trip to Paris, and was not comfortable putting my phone or valuables in the small pockets designed for them as if you wear this on your back, it would be too easy for a pickpocket to get into. Other than that, perfect.
