REVIEW – Wilderness Equipment Jagungle

ITEM:    Jagungal Pack

MANUFACTURER:           Wilderness Equipment

DESCRIPTION:

An internal framed, 48L technical day-and-a-half pack, comparable to the military concept of a 3-day pack. The Jagungle (I believe it’s pronounced Jer-Jungle) is intended as a heavyweight daypack, for such outdoor professional such as outdoor guides, search and rescue teams and others who carry heavy but compact loads such as canyoners and climbers.

It’s essentially a full-size alpine style hiking pack scaled down to a daypack size package.
