The GoLite Jam is an excellent lightweight (420g) walking pack that strips out all the non-essentials to deliver great functionality. There is enough space and carrying capacity here to cope comfortably with multi-day trips. But there’s no lid but a rear pocket that can be difficult to access when you’re near full capacity so you need to pack carefully to keep gear accessible and to retain good comfort levels.

The GoLite Jam is a superb rucksack for lightweight walking, but you need to pack thoughtfully to get the most out of it.
