Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is JUST what I was looking for!! First off, people that say it's too small, get over yourselves. It's made to be a smaller bag just for the daily grind. Since I've had it, I've ridden my bicycle, motorcycle, and just taken it with me to and from work in my car. It's everything I wanted and was looking for. No fanny pack for the bicycle. No saddle bags for the motorcycle. And it looks great and is way easy to maneuver in and out of the car. I can bring my tablet and a laptop, phone, wallet, keys, cables for everything, and still have extra pockets for my pills and multivitamins. It's a great day pack. DAY pack. I can't stress that enough. I do have others for over night or weekends but this is great for my daily work lifestyle. Yes, the price is kinda steep, but that's TNF. It's the value you get when purchasing one of these guys!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice backpack. Does not have a removable waist belt? Seems the right size. Fits a 15.4" Macbook pro retina although only spec'd for a 13. Does not have a removable waist belt although listed as having one everywhere including the little notes that come with the bag. That said TNF site now does not list a removable waist belt on the men version but DOES on the women version, although that seems to not have one either. I honestly don't see where such a "removable waist belt" will attach. What's it gonna be TNF?

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Just what I was looking for I've been searching far and wide for a laptop backpack to carry around my macbook air and its accessories along with some papers and accessories for my everyday commute on the streets and crowded NYC subways. I'm very pleased to have found this... small enough to feel slim but big enough to carry the things I need most. Will likely use another backpack for either gym stuff and/or longer business trips, but for everyday use this looks great, and have gotten compliments and the asphalt grey/black color scheme. Great price, too at Sports Authority!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great backpack for a quick trip. Comfortable! This backpack is great. It isn't going to fit everything you might need for a day, but it's perfect fro short trips or going to the office with a small change of clothes. It's internal frame and back padding might make it a little bulky, but it's certainly comfortable and doesn't get you too sweaty. I can even still shove it inside other daypacks. The completely opening back compartment is useful to realoly maximize space. The organization compartment is perfect for all the electronics and other do-dads you might carry. Lastly, the small padded compartment is nice for quick-grab things.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Small but good quality As a college student, I wanted a backpack that would fit my books and my laptop. I found this particular backpack to be too small to fit all of my things, but I think this would be perfect for someone who just needs to carry around a laptop or tablet, and maybe one notebook or folder. Not great if you've got 4 or 5 textbooks as well as a computer to lug around.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredible backpack for commuter and overnight/gym This is an incredible backpack. I use it to always house my computer, some overnight clothes and shoes for the gym. It also serves as a low-profile solution for carrying audio equipment. It could use space for an easy-access water bottle panel, but that was not in the description so no sweat. All in all a fantastic purchase. Super comfy and compact.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for my Surface Pro 4 I have neck, shoulder, and back problems. It doesn't take much to trigger pain. This is the most comfortable pack I've used for my Surface Pro and mobile office supplies. No pain so far, even when walking as much as half a mile.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 10/10 I bought this backpack for my boyfriend and he absolutely loved it. It feels good on his back thanks to the comfortable padding since he works 12 hours a day, the last thing he needs is to end the workday carrying an uncomfortable backpack. Northface back packs also have a ton of pockets. A TON! Since we commute nearly 3 hours a day he brings extra clothes, his vape necessities, his personal hygiene and other things, and this backpack fits it all without looking too bulky. Thank you Northface for making wonderful products no other backpack company can.
