Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for school, very durable I really wasn't expecting this backpack to hold my huge textbooks, but it really does the job. I'd say that I can fit 2-3 thick textbooks + binders, too. It really surprised me. Also, I love the water bottle holsters on the sides, really handy. The only thing I wish that it had is more room in the front pocket, but other than that it's an amazing bag for a reasonable price. I think that it is good for anyone who needs to carry reasonably thin things, but the bag can hold a substantial amount of weight. Good for hiking, trips and day-to-day school life, high school or college. Overall a great product that I'll use for a long time.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great bag for daily adventures This bag has plenty of room for all the stuff I carry on adventures with my kids. I bought it because I needed a bag with side pockets for bottles. The bottle pockets on this bag are plenty deep and wide, so they even hold large Nalgene bottles. The outside bungee cords are great for hats and the hip belt helps distribute weight. It does have two minor downsides: at first it is very stiff, especially the back which feels like cardboard, and the Scottish Moss Green is more neon green than I was expecting, but I see these as minor complaints. Overall, I like the bag, which seems well constructed, and I recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AWESOME BACKPACK! This is hands down the best backpack I have had. It's very spacious, without adding extra bulk or weight. I use it all the time for school and travel, and it is very durable. The large pocket easily fits two large textbooks, several binders, and additional notebooks and the straps make it very comfortable to carry the weight. The smaller pocket is awesome for storing everything from electronics to smaller books, and the various pockets keep everything organized and accessible. I really love the mesh side pockets and bungee strap for holding a water bottle, an umbrella, keys, or folding a rain jacket in.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Moneyyy Backpack Love the backpack. I have had a hard time finding a new backpack that meets my standards after my Nike Air backpack I had all through grade school and highschool fell apart. Finally after 2 years of carrying my books to class in college I decided to go big and sprung for the North Face Jester and it has exceeded my expectations. The back pack fits extremely comfortably and you can pack it with books and whatever else with out having to worry about it tearing or the zippers breaking. This backpack is not only great for school but I also love it when I go on short hikes with my friends, taking it to the gym or visiting friends at other schools as it surprising fits more stuff that you'd think.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great I use this pack for school, it's big enough and it fits just about everything. the outside pocket is great for storing gym clothes or squeezing in sneakers. I use the inside pocket for books and binders. when your books are all the way at the bottom, you can also stuff something extra like your project for math,history, french, english, science or even drama. the side pockets can be used for water bottles or posters. i have found this pack to be a little uncomfy when a text book is right against your back, so you might want to be sure to put a binder there instead.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This backback is classic quality. First off you cant go wrong with anything North Face! the pack has several awesome colors including the green plaid and the grey and yellow (one i have) to pick from. There is something out there for everyone! The pack size is alright but it gets kinda tight when you include your laptop along with school books. I love the drawcord on the outside! theres nothing easier then strapping on your rain jacket after the sun comes out! If you have the money and are looking for an affordable quality day backpack then the Jester is the way to go!,,

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great... if you don't wear pants or a belt. I bought this bag last year for my second year of college and was pleasantly surprised by the size. It is much bigger than I expected and is the perfect size for my laptop, textbooks, coffee mug and nalgene. However after about 4 months of use, a hole wore through at the bottom of the bag where it hit my belt/belt loops. The whole has become so large that I cannot use the bag anymore. The rest of the bag has held up incredibly well and hardly shows dirt even though it is white and gray.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from i love this backpack! i just started college and around campus this is the most popular backpack i have seen! it fits my computer and my books and has tons of other pockets to put everything else i need. the pockets on the sides are so convenient for my water bottle on one side and my umbrella on the other. i carry this backpack everyday and the actual backpack its self is super light, so it doesn't add much weight to my back even with all my books in it. this backpack beats any other backpack i have had!
