The North Face Big Shot Backpack is a large backpack for school and travel. After many tried and true years with the original Big Shot, TNF has stepped it up and completely redesigned the pack for 2015 for the better. At first glance you'll notice a sleeker, more technical look with D-door front pockets and fleece lined media pocket up at the top for quick access items. The main section is cavernous, fitting a 17" laptop in the padded sleeve, as well as lined tablet sleeve for your smaller machine. To prevent loss of smaller items, organization in the form of a zippered pocket controls a handful of pennies and elastic webbing manages power cords. Slide the FlexVent™ suspension system onto your back and revel in the padded mesh backpanel with spine channel that allows venting as you sweat it up on your walk home from the bus.

Products on Sale are Discontinued Styles or Colors.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Bag for Whatever. This backpack is perfect for anything I want/need to do. I have been using for carrying anything from work supplies/laptop to carrying cleats, workout clothes, sunglasses, etc. I feel that this bag covers all the bases and is super comfortable. I have yet to take it hiking, however it would be a great pack for getting outdoors for a day hike as well. It has awesome slots for shoes, so I like putting my soccer cleats in those pouches and they fit perfectly (size 10.5). This bag has replaced my old Osprey daypack. It is much more suited to my needs of travel, work, and play. I was chosen to test this bag by The North Face, and I have loved every second with it. #ambsdr #tnflocals

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great purchase I bought this for my son, who has tons of school books, a laptop, phone, earbuds, athletic clothes to carry. It's great to carry a lot of stuff! Very well made, very sturdy, love the handle on the back so it can be carried as a bag as well. Love all the compartments for all the different things he has to tote. It's the most expensive backpack I've ever purchased, but can foresee that he will be able to use it for years to come. So you can pay $50 a year for one, or buy this one and keep it for many years. It will save you money in the end.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Multi-purpose Pack with Comfort and Support This is a great pack that serves a lot of purposes for me. I use it for day trips and it functions very well here. What surprised me is it has also replaced my messenger bag that I would use commuting to work on my bike. It has a perfect computer slot for my 15" MacBook Pro. I can really stuff it full and even when it is heavy picking up, it doesn't feel heavy on my back, a sign of superior design. The support and structure to the pack is excellent and doesn't detract from the comfort. I haven't used many of the interior pocket features but they are well positioned. The top exterior pocket gets lots of use. The only minor con is I don't use the front handle much and I might get more use out of bungee cords here. All in all, I couldn't ask for a better pack.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super Pack: Works for Office, Weekend, and as a Day Pack I've used this backpack for several months now and love pretty much everything about it. It has become my de facto work pack when I have to go into the office, works perfectly for a weekend away, and recently was my go-to bag when I attended the Outdoor Retailer Summer Market. Benefits: Holds a computer securely and comfortably in its own interior sleeve; all exterior pockets are streamlined but open up to hold lots of your stuff; mesh panels and other interior organization details make finding things a breeze; comfortable on the back both empty and overstuffed; extra lash points; hydration compatible. Cons: only one - this pack is top-heavy when empty, so it does not sit up to be packed, sort of leans down - not a big deal, but slight bother for sure. (*This pack was provided to me as an #AMBSDR for the #TNFLocals.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Pack! I found the surge and router had too many pockets etc for my minimalist needs. I use this pack for the office and my only carryon for travel (2-3 nites). I like the outside pockets for quick grab items. Laptop is easy to get to, even when stuffed w clothes. It has more space than appears, and carries well stuffed, you don't look/feel like a turtle. I noticed that no one really carries this in stores, but, I got lucky and saw one in a Chicago luggage store... I recommend this if you are looking for a simple yet functional pack that you can use for almost anything! My travels are mostly business casual, I have placed a blazer in the pack. I find that I typically have extra space after packing necessities for travel, allowing me to add extras, or, not pack items tightly. I roll all my clothes for travel.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Backpack! My son who is in junior high needed a durable, BIG backpack for school (he has lots of textbooks). My only criticism (and it was probably our fault) was that it was slightly too big for his locker. However, that being said, it's perfect for him. When I went looking for a backpack to take him from junior high until he graduates from high school, friends recommended the North Face brand for it's durability (my only other experience was a backpack that I use for when we travel and I love that North Face backpack). Plus, he got a backpack in his favorite university colors.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I love my hiking pack! I use my pack for hiking and I love it. The pack itself has plenty, if not, more than enough storage for the items I need to bring with me. I love the soft compartment on the front, I can fit my DLSR, Ray Bans, AND iPhone in there all together, I love that it has plenty of storage for water bottles as I usually bring atleast 3L with me (I utilize the inside compartments as well). I did not give it a 5 star solely because of the weight of the pack and how comfortable it is to carry for extended periods, I'm on the smaller side and I feel this is on the heavier side for a pack, that doesn't take away from how much I love it! It's comfortable when I wear it (I did 15 miles of hiking this past weekend) but my shoulders/traps feel it afterwards.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I've gone through so many, and this is the only one to last A) I'm highly picky. I want my backpack to look great and perform the best. It has to carry the seemingly endless supply of notebooks, books, and folders, along with my laptop, that I need for class daily -- and not fall apart. On top of that, it has to not kill my shoulders. I've had little success with this-- usually when I find such a backpack, it does not last longer than a semester (I'm a Pre-Med Biology college student, if that gives you any perspective) which is frustrating. It's led me to hours of online research, searching for best quality, lots of room, yet still looks good-- scared that I'll never find such a backpack. B) With that being said, this backpack does all of this :D It looks great, manages to defy physics and pack everything (and well, might I add), so that it's still carrying everything and not hitting everyone as you walk by with how thick it is (as my other backpacks used to do, haha). And, it also has straps that make it seem like you're not carrying that much. You may pick it up by the top handle and be like "HOW CAN I CARRY THIS" and then get it on your shoulders and think, "Where did all that weight go?". The technology in these straps really does work, and they feel great. C) It's lasted through my hardest semester yet without a tear. I don't usually write reviews, but that alone drove me to write one, because that. is. real. quality. I appreciate that so much, and I want someone else who is looking for the same thing as I was to know that this backpack delivers :) D) AND it looks great on top of that. I've gotten so many compliments, AND it packs everything in a practical manner, but still allows you to throw things in if you're in a rush (not everything is in pockets, kind of thing -- there is a spacious inside area that fits a TON, like a 5in textbook and an almost equally large notebook and few other things too). It was such a relief to find this backpack -- it does everything and is QUALITY.
