Jack Wolfskin Moab Jam Review

In a couple of weeks, I’m going skiing with my family and I thought that it’s a great opportunity to buy a new skiing backpack. That’s how I replaced my old bag with a brand new, 34 liters capacity Jack Wolfskin Moab Jam.

As I could not find any detailed review of this backpack, I dropped a few photos and write my user experience with this pack. That might be useful for people searching for a good skiing backpack.

As I said, winter holidays are coming and we are going to spend one week in Siusi in Italy where we will ski on our favorite slopes in Alpe di Siusi (part of Val Gardena ski region). We have been there several times, but previously we always stayed in Ortisei. This time we will visit Siusi – I will drop some lines to let you know if it’s worth to go there.

Anyway, coming back to the backpack…

Jack Wolfskin Moab Jam 34

My goal was to find a backpack that is spacious enough to fit all my GoPro accessories, my family stuff like caps, spare gloves, and also has some features which could be useful on the slope.

After a couple of hours with Google, I came across Jack Wolfskin Moab Jam. There are two versions of this backpack – the difference is capacity:

The version I’m using: Jack Wolfskin Moab Jam 34 on Amazon

This is the backpack which I finally purchased with 34 liters of capacity (photo source: Amazon.com)

And the smaller one: Jack Wolfskin Moab Jam 24 on Amazon

First Impressions

Jack Wolfskin Moab Jam backpack looks robust. The backpack’s body is made of a very lightweight, hard-wearing ripstop fabric with reinforcement threads. That’s why it weights only 850 grams.

It has a number of interesting features, that’s why right after receiving the product I started to familiarize myself with its features.

When empty looks pretty flat 🙂

The backpack’s backs have the ACS technology which is a ventilation gap that allows warm air to escape immediately. As a result, the only contact surface with your back is a mesh surface.

Backpack’s Features

Each special feature is marked with the tag label indicating the function of it.

Starting from the top of the backpack we have an “H2O” tag indicating the tube duct and fastener.

On the base compartment of Jack Wolfskin Moab Jam, you will find the LED light attachment.

The next one is my favorite – lightly padded pocket in a waist belt. Looks perfect for my smartphone or some change.

At the bottom of the backpack, right under the base compartment, you will find the integrated rain cover.

In the front compartment, I found a mesh for the ski helmet. You can easily attach it to the backpack using hooks.

You can easily fit there a pair of shoes or ski goggles.

Base compartment

The front pocket contains an inner pouch with a zip and organizer for smaller items. It has also a key clip.

The main compartment is large enough to fit some after-ski shopping. It has also an inner pocket where you can store a water bladder.

User Experience

The content of this paragraph will come soon. I will test Jack Wolfskin Moab Jam in Alpe di Siusi and I will drop some photos from that

Wrap Up

So far, so good. The backpack looks great, I’m looking forward to testing it in the field.

Stay tuned for the update in this post.
