The GoLite Jam Backpack earned honors with the second highest load carrying capacity in Backpacking Light’s 2004 Frameless Pack Review. The key to the GoLite Jam’s load carrying performance is not any one feature but a combination of many things done well, including the thoughtful design of the hip belt and compression strap system. The GoLite Jam is one of the most feature rich sub-$100 packs on the market, with good load carrying capacity, light weight, good volume compression, external storage options, and features that climbers will appreciate. This comprehensive review highlights the following features of the GoLite Jam Backpack: specifications, features (frame and suspension analysis, usability features, and load volume flexibility), field performance (pack load carrying capacity, durability), value, and recommendations for improvement.
