The comPACKtor™ system makes your pack far more versatile by enabling you to reduce your pack's volume through the use of two fixed compression anchor clips and adjustable side compression straps. With the comPACKtor™ system engaged, your pack is instantly transformed from a lightweight multi-day carrying system into a day-tripper or peak-bagger with smaller profile and volume.

Dyneema® The fabric of choice for our standard-setting UltraLite Series packs, our exclusive Dyneema® Gridstop weave combines 100% nylon base yarn with Dyneema fibers to deliver the strongest, lightest, performance pack fabric ever produced. Dyneema fibers have a strength-to-weight ratio that is 15 times better than high tensile steel, making this fabric incredibly difficult to tear.

Not worth the cheap price
I had high expectations for this pack since I think GoLite generally does a great job, but the darn straps are crap. They were never particularly comfortable to start (I think the top of the strap needs to be attached to the pack higher up on the pack body), but then the padding in them deteriorated pretty quick. Also, the fabric, especially on the hip strap pockets, is not durable and has gotten all sorts of tears in it even though I think I've been pretty careful with it. Overall the Jam is not worth the very affordable price tag because it's going to have to be replaced after just a few months of use.

TMB with Jam50
Great pack and was perfect on the Tour De Mont Blanc. Keep pack weight down and yet had needed features and support. Waiting for the rain cover to get back into production so I can order this as well. Golite Jam is the way to go.

very uncomfortable
I have used this pack all summer for treks ranging from 1-5 nights, mostly in rough Alaska terrain. Kudos for the material, which has withstood hours of alder bashing. Unfortunately, this pack is so unstructured that it's super uncomfortable and the straps pull on my shoulders something fierce (I am petite woman). I have tried rolling my sleeping pad around the inside, and keeping the load way below 30 but I'm ready to chuck this thing. I can carry 35 lbs in a 5lb Osprey easier than 20 lbs in the Jam 70.
