JanSport D2

Jansport D2 External Frame Pack

Yes, this is a brand new backpack, and it's for sale (or will be, in spring 2011). In 1972, Jansport put out a grande-size aluminum-frame backpack (revolutionizing the look of retro gear for decades to come). It was a high-volume, high-load pack capable of ferrying an expedition to the ends of the earth, and it's back for another tour. This D2 is a faithful replica of its predecessor, and will run you $275. Nostalgia has its price.
