    Size: O/SColor: Deep Navy
    I had a JanSport Cloud Nine backpack which, after 10 years of use, started to show its age. The bag never failed, but the rubberized coating inside the bag started to flake off and get everywhere. JanSport backpacks have a lifetime guarantee, so I sent in my old bag for repairs. Since they stopped making the Cloud Nine many years ago, they sent me this bag as a replacement (Odyssey T14G). The remainder of this review will compare the pros and cons of this bag against the Cloud Nine. I know only a small (if any) portion of the people reading this review had the Cloud Nine, but this review should still be helpful to anyone wanting to know the features of this pack.


    * 39 liter packs.
    * Waist straps.
    * Airflow back padding.
    * Thumb loops on shoulder straps.


    * This Odyssey has a laptop sleeve which can also be used for a 3 liter hydration system. The laptop sleeve said it was for 15" laptops, but my 17" fits (Dell XPS 17 with an extended battery). Due to the size of the 17" laptop, it sticks out of the top of pocket a bit. I can still close and zip the bag, but the loft pocket is barely usable because the laptop is pushing into its space. If I really wanted to use the loft pocket, the main compartment is more than big enough to hold my laptop.
    * Compression straps.
    * Daisy Chain.
    * Two external water bottle pockets. The Cloud Nine only had one.
    * The waist belt tucks behind back pad when not in use. The Cloud Nine used loops to stow the waist belt which was a pain to use.
    * Sternum Strap.


    * The nylon on the Cloud Nine was 1000 mil ballistic nylon on the bottom and thick nylon everywhere else.

    Size: One SizeColor: Black
    I received this pack as a replacement for model #TUV6 pack previously sold as the Odyssey Daypack. What a serious disappointment. The back padding and shoulder straps have been replaced with an excessively cheap foam material that I sincerely doubt will last nearly as long as the Bio-Vent material used on the older model and the TTF0, the predecessor to the TUV6 (they had a lot more in common than with this new bag). Additionally, the zippered compartment for the camelback sleeve has been removed so you are now left to choose between that and your laptop. Also, the pencil organization pocket has been changed to a completely useless format. The sleeves have a weird shape that aren't suited for much of anything. And my biggest gripe of all, they changed from two main compartments to one big compartment. I liked keeping my books separate from folders and notebooks, and it's nice having two compartments when I used the pack for travel, so this was a serious blow back. Overall I am highly unsatisfied with this pack. I found one TUV6 from another website so I scooped it up and will be sending this pack back for a refund, and would have gone with a Northface Surge II if I hadn't found the TUV6 elsewhere.

    Size: O/SColor: Deep Navy Verified Purchase
    I got this pack for my wife. She's rather petite, 5'2" and not very heavy. At first I was leaning towards the more expensive Northface daypacks, but she felt that they were heavy for her, even when empty. This JanSport model is built very lightweight and the shoulder straps are unisex designed. I always thought straight shoulder straps were for men, curvy for women. Now manufacterers are calling the curvy straps "unisex," who knows? She likes the extra wide portion of the hip belts that will come in contact with the hips when in use. Believe me, using the hip belts when on a long day hike really helps! Most hip belts on daypacks are just a skinny straps. The hook inside for hanging a hydration bladder is a plus, along with an opening for routing the bladder hose out the top. Then along the shoulder straps, there are elastic straps for the water hose. My wife felt that this pack will serve a multitude of needs from hikes to carrying books at school.

    Size: One SizeColor: Black Verified Purchase
    I just received my pack. I like it, even though it was not the pack I was expecting. I believe I have the newer model, I was unaware the Odyssey had been updated. It fits all my everyday carry stuff and then a LOT more room.

    For this review, when I refer to my model, I'm referring to the updated version that I received. I read and watched reviews, which is what I'm basing this off of.

    Differences that I've noticed:
    -The older model had a place for the hydration bladder AND a laptop. My model does not. The pouch the hydration bladder used to be is now a felt lined approximately 3" by 8" pocket.
    -The organization pocket has been rearranged. Not for the worse, there is a sleeve that's a perfect size for a tablet. The clip was replaced with a very small beaner.
    -The breathable plastic has been replaced with foam. I've been wearing it all day thus far and I really like the foam. Its very comfortable and seems to breath really well.
    -In reviews, people complained about the grab handle, saying its flimsy. Its not my rubber covered nylon webbingish Eddie Bauer handle (which is what I'm switching from), but it feels pretty well. This morning when I got it I carried it around for awhile and didn't seem to bother me.

    -This is the only con (other than expecting the above listed differences, which isn't really a bad thing) is the mesh pockets on the side. They don't fit my nalgene very well at all. It fits with some pushing, but it takes actual effort to shove it in. I was worried that it would fall out, so I made for the take up strap goes through the nalgene's loop, which works for me.

    -ITS HUGE!!!!!!!! Legit.
    -Without being broke in, its comfortable.
    -Feel's durable.
