JanSport’s newest backpack, the Alt Pack, is unquestionably for the hardcore gadget junky. To begin with, the bag is wired for your iPod. It has a dual port connection that will hook up any iPod 3rd generation or later. You can control the iPod with the remote control integrated into the strap of the pack. Also on the strap is a remote to control your Bluetooth compatible and a microphone to use with headphones to make and receive calls. The remotes require 3 AAA batteries to work.
Inside the pack is a ShockShield laptop sleeve to protect a laptop with a screen up to 15.4 inches and a V-Loft pocket which protects your electronics while saving space. A cord manager keeps you from getting your wires crossed and an integrated rain cover protects your toys in a downpour.
The pack weighs 2 pounds 11 ounces and has a capacity of 1100 cubic inches in six separate compartments. It’s not cheap, though – $299.90.
