I’m getting rid of my Golite Jam 50L, bought in 2012.
It’s used (obviously), but still got many years of life left in it. For most of my backpacking needs I use a Gossamer Gear Mariposa which suits me fine for multi-day treks. I’ve only tended to use the Jam for short overnight camps, or on multi-days trips when I’m not carrying camping gear. I’ve not kept an exact record but looking back over the walks I’ve done since I got the pack I calculate it at 40 days of walking.
The pack’s in reasonable condition, with no broken straps or buckles. There’s a 1cm tear in the front pocket which doesn’t affect the function. One of the straps is showing a bit of wear, and there’s the sort of accretion of ground-in dirt marks that you’d expect.
Size: Large torso length
Capacity: 50L, including external pockets which account for about 8L I think.
Weight: about 900g (I think)
I’m not going to go into long lists of features – the reviews do those far more efficiently – and if you’re reading this there’s a good chance you’re already familiar with what the pack can do. So instead here’s a few photos of the pack in use and showing its condition:
