      Terrific Backpack for Student

      This is an incredibly good backpack, especially worth it when on sale. North Face has always had quality backpacks, and I was really pleased with my purchase. Pros: - LOTS of room and tons of compartments - all of pockets are roomy, and there are lots of pockets both inside and outside of the bag (2 bottle holders on each side.) Additionally, there are even dividers within the pockets of some of the compartments. - Has a cushy laptop holder, protects your laptop from the rest of your books and things. - The backstraps put less stress and pressure on your shoulders than the average backpack. - Can store TONS of books and supplies even after putting in your laptop. - Very sturdy and rain-resistant. Cons: The only real con is that this backpack is slightly heavy and not lightweight. Overall, this backpack is fantastic, aside from its bulkiness, and I would recommend this product to everyone, especially students who have lots of textbooks.

      Accommodates my MSI GT Titan Pro 17.3" Laptop

      I was looking for a backpack to accommodate my MSI - GT Titan Pro 17.3" 4K Ultra HD Laptop. I took my laptop into my local BestBuy. A BestBuy associate helped me select a backpack to fit my laptop (16 3/4" x 12" x 2 1/2"). I settled on the North Face backpack. While my laptop does not fit in the laptop sleeve, it does fit nicely in the main compartment. The North Face backpack has ample room for my laptop's power block as well as other accessories. The quality of the North Face backpack is excellent. Until a backpack comes out with North Face's quality that fits my large screen laptop in the laptop sleeve, this is my laptop bag of choice for traveling.

      Stylish and spacious

      I was looking for a bag for Law school. I went to about 10 different stores. I was looking for something stylish. First I bought a leather briefcase with wheels but I thought carrying it all day either by hand or rolling it would be too much. Then I returned it for a bookbag but it didn’t have any water bottle pockets. Then saw this at Best it and fell in love with it. It also fits my 15 inch laptop. It’s sturdy let’s see if it’s durable. I have to park downtown and walk a lot, this seems sturdy and my books are heavy. I already took it on a hike.

      Didn't expect Bestbuy to carry NorthFace bags, but had to snatch one when I saw it in stock. They had limited stock in this model and was the last one. Like any NorthFace Bags, it is top notch quality and has all the essential pockets needed for school, work, or everyday usage. Like most NorthFaces, it is designed so that you don't really feel all the weight pushing you down (if you know what I mean...) You feel more stable wearing this bag as it is hugging your back and doesn't droop down. Get one! Won't regret.

      it is a good backpack, and well made except for the buckles in the front. the plastic buckles broke immediadly. ive been dealing with northface customer service but they kept sending me the wrong size replacements, so i got frustrated and asked if i can send it in. the customer service rep. said yes it will take 4-6 weeks and i have to pay for the shipping, i thought northface would make it simpler as i cant be without my school bag that long. other than that it is solid backpack

      Best backpack I’ve ever owned

      So I went through a phase of literally buying every backpack I kind of liked until I found the perfect one. I never did. I went through Samsonites, Incase, you name it.... but where one was lacking, the other was winning and vice versa. Point is, the backpack was either attractive or fully functional. Never both. This pack does both very well. It’s insanely functional with its varied pockets, it is comfortable, and to me it looks great. Awesome backpack :)

      Sturdy High Quality Materials

      The backpack comes complete with several compartments for daily use. The product is quite sturdy with high quality materials and fleece pockets on the inside of backpack. I do find the volume of the main compartment less than ideal to hold a laptop along with a few books. I am left hoping the main compartment would be wider to accommodate a few books for a student.

      This is a nice size backpage for college students or working professionals. Very light and distribute weight where it counts to prevent back ache or shoulder pain. The price is high comparable to other backpack but is worth it. Quality is very good and will last at least 4-5 years at a minimum (talking about rough handling here).
