Rated 4 out of 5 by from Deep & Thin I like this bag alot. I got it for my trip to Croatia in a few months and so was slightly concerned when I saw that it was thin. However, it's deceivingly deep and has tons of storage that I didn't expect. I tested it and put a whole bunch of clothes into it (it was alot of clothes). I haven't used it for travel yet, but I do use it daily for school and it has more than enough space and has a couple convenient easy to reach places for my iPad and laptop. I would recommend for someone who is okay with one giant pocket and then side pockets for small things like keys and the essential, quick to reach items like your laptop or iPad.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent packpack! I did a lot of research before I purchased this backpack and I can't imagine that I could have made a better choice. It has done a lot of traveling with me and is still in excellent shape. The straps are padding make it comfy and the very bottom strap is great if you have a lot of weight in it. I frequently travel with this as my carry on and it fits my ipad, kindle, iphone, mac air, charging cords, purse, snacks, blanket, headphones, toiletry bag, glasses, hair clip and a bottle of mountain dew. Overall a great pack that has held up really well for me. Excellent!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best backpack I use this backpack for college as well as for when I go on hikes. It's ability to stand alone allows me to grab items with ease. How tight it is to my body allows me to perform light physical activity. Two easy access compartments make organizing a breeze in addition to the main compartment and laptop compartment. It is extremely stylish and sleek and sets me apart from the all the other typical bags. Definitely a great combination between style and functionality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sweetest Bag Ever! I use it everyday to carry my work laptop, notebook, and U-lock for my bike. Fits perfectly, just like most bags out there but what distinguishes this bag is its looks! & the BEST thing for me is that it stands on its own and makes (un)packing so much easier!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Backpack (Pompeian Red) I use it for hiking, biking and commute. Great storage space and great design. Pompeian Red gives it a tone which makes it an excellent backpack. Very happy with this purchase.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from GREAT SCHOOL BACKPACK, NO REGRETS Love this backpack. I am a person that carries around ALOT. My last backpack had two large pockets but fell apart, so I chose to get a more durable one. This backpack is extremely durable, water repellent, sleek, and convenient. I am still getting used to only having one large pocket, but the top pocket is perfect for pens, keys, glasses.. I can fit a lot and is super easy to get to. I also love that there are two water bottle holders. Overall, great bag. I am a happy customer.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice bag... But won't fit my 15.6" laptop I bought this bag since the majority of laptop sleeves in backpacks are only for laptops up to 15". I have a 15.6" hp pavilion laptop and was very disappointed to find that it wouldn't fit in the sleeve of this backpack, despite it saying that it can fit 17" laptops. Asside from this issue, it seems to be a durable bag.

Is there any way to add a waist strap to lighten loads off the shoulders?

Asked by: Meli
Hiya, thanks for your question! I reached out to The North Face about this and they suggested contacting their warranty department. They might be able to add a waist strap at a cost. You can contact them at 855-500-8639. Hope this helps!
