Between being a mother of five, hiking, living in the city, and frequent traveling I use my backpack every day. After my previous bag fell apart I shopped around and found the perfect bag. The padding on the shoulders and back is superb and allows for proper weight distribution. The compartments on the inside enable easy organization and the pockets on the outside are perfect for frequent access items such as bottles, sippy cups, water bottles, keys, etc. The laptop slot is great for safe keeping of my laptop so I don't need and additional bag. It is also great for keeping books and important papers safe-especially when I have all the kids stuff! My favorite part is the side buckles to deflate the bag allowing for easy carrying. This bag is neither too big or too small and is honestly made perfectly. Material is strong and sturdy, seams are perfect and tight. Although I beat up book bags quite a bit I know this will last me for years to come! I certainly recommend this to everyone!

My kid sister is in her first year in college and her back was struggling. She likes the NF brand and needed something with a little more space. I ordered her the women's recon in Teaberry Pink and she loves it. Plenty of room for her laptop, books, and all of the other stuff she hauls around. The pink on the teaberry is not as "bright" as it looks in the picture, but still a nice looking bag. Looks to be well constructed with strong zippers.
Okay so I use this for school and not hiking. But I do have to walk like 15 minutes to and from each class because the campus is huge, so I wanted something that was comfortable. The shape of the straps is great, and it comes with a waist strap as well as a chest strap. I rarely use the waist strap, but the chest strap I use every time. Helps a lot to keep the weight evenly distributed. I also like that it has tons of pockets, there is a place to put everything!
I love this backpack. It's perfect for me and my busy college life, mature, but still fun with its turqouise color. Plenty of space and pockets for anything you can think of. Best of all, it has great padding on the back and in the straps for my back! I would definitely recommend this backpack to anyone.
"Easy to use, good amount of pockets and a padded place to put your laptop!"
I love love love this backpack! Not only is it nice and cute it's very functional as well. It has just the right amount of space, where you have enough room for your stuff but not too much to where you would lose stuff in it (trust me I've had one of those before)! Not only is the backpack wonderful, Moosejaw sent my backpack in a timely manner. I would choose this backpack and ordering from Moosejaw if I did it again!
