Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Everyday Pack I've had this pack for a few weeks now, and have found it has quickly become my go to backpack for everyday use. I commute to work everyday on a bicycle or motorcycle, so a back pack to carry my things is essential. The Haystack fits the bill perfectly! Not to many pockets to get lost in, but plenty of storage space, lightweight, and a durable material. The color (grey print and bright green) stands out as well! My wife has one also, and we use them all the time for weekend overnight trips to the mountains, the city, or wherever we might be exploring; I definitely recommend this pack if you're looking for something that is lightweight, stylish, and comfortable. #TNFLocals #AMBSDR

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome I bought this backpack for my ninth grader and she loves it. She can easily fit all her books. Many reviews said there wasn't any space for a cell phone or other small personal belongings but we found there were pockets for things like that on the inside of the backpack. There is also a laptop holder in the backpack where she puts her iPad in and it works great. There is also an addition pocket on the outside for other things. The only disappointment she had was that the backpack didn't have the signature north face buckle with the whistle on the straps. Overall it was great and I would buy it again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The roomiest back pack for a highschooler This is a lightweight but spacious backpack. I can fit 2 binders, a lunchbox, a water-bottle, my PE uniform, a pencil pouch and a bunch of miscellaneous gadgets. It also has a laptop sleeve for when I need it or miscellaneous folders. The water bottle pockets are deep enough so the bottle actually stays in place. It has small organizer pockets in the big main compartment. I just wish there were some more in the small front pocket but it's not big deal since the small front pocket can fit a lot. In my case, it fits 2 scientific calculators, a book and a bunch of small stuff. I used the North Face backpacks since I was in elementary school and they never failed me. They are durable, well made and last for years. I definitely recommend this backpack!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Transition Pack I love this bag because it has the ability to take me from work (holds my laptop, writing materials, phone, camera, etc.) straight to the mountains to explore (shoe pocket, durable enough to hold climbing gear, water resistant, etc.). On top of that, it's comfortable. It doesn't put pressure on any on point, the weight is distributed evenly. The shoulder straps and back are padded for comfort which make it great to carry both at work and on a hike. It is big - holds quite a bit of stuff.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Bag!! I bought this for my son & he really likes it. He had a choice of more expensive ones but still chose this one!! The colors are great! It easily holds all of his back to school items. The quality is very good as with all NorthFace products. I would definitely purchase another one if needed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Backpack for Medium to Large Kids The moment he spied the grey "camouflage" and bright Krypton Green highlights, our middle son took this backpack as his own. All summer this was the bag he took everywhere: weekend sleepovers, a week at a lakeside cottage, and now it's his school backpack. Fits his iPad Mini in a case, folders, library books, extra clothes and more. Only complaint is that there is not a lot of organization help in this pack: minimal pencil sleeves, etc. Also, the front pocket is very large and things tend to get a bit jumbled in there. Based on the abuse he's put it through and the minimal wear showing, this pack will be in the family for years to come. (*I received this pack as a #TNFLocals #AMBSDR.)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great quality! I use the backpack for all my school books (which is a lot!) and it easily fits everything, plus my computer if needed. The quality is great and it looks just like the picture. It is extremely comfortable and doesn't hurt my back or shoulders when there is a lot of stuff in it. I especially like the fact that there are 2 mesh drink holders. The only thing I would add is a zippered pocket to the inside for pencils, pens, flash drives, etc.

Would a 17.3in laptop fit in?

Asked by: Johanna
Hey there! Thanks for reaching out to us. This is a sticky I'll give you all the deets, and let you decide. So, according the North Face website, the laptop sleeve is 14” x 13.75”. However, that should accommodate a 15" laptop. Now, since your laptop is 17.3", it's bigger than the sleeve, but it will still fit in the bag, the dimensions of which are as follows, 19” x 13.5” x 8.25”. Do with that information what you will. Hope it helps you out!
