The North Face Pivoter Backpack is a school backpack that doubles as a gym bag. The 27 liter pack opens to a large main compartment, complete with padded sleeve for a 15" laptop. Pile in the books right after the machine and move on over to the next compartment. The second section has a super wide D-door opening, just right for gym clothes, hoodie for cold classrooms, but you should really just see how many granola bars you can fit inside. You can never have too many snacks. A simple, smaller stash zipper pocket at the front holds your phone, sunglasses, and wallet. Bouncing between school and your work out center of choice even remains comfortable due to FlexVent™ suspension with a padded air-mesh back panel with a venting channel just for your spine.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not what I expected Quality and comfort are good, but very hard to access your he main area because it is so small and does not open well. I like the jester better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Three weeks in Europe I'm a minimalist when it comes to packing for travel. I took the North Face Pivoter on a 3 week trip to Europe as my only luggage (other than my purse) and it was absolutely perfect. I liked the front opening a lot because everything was very accessible! I managed to squeeze in 3 shirts, an extra pair of jeans, a few pairs of underwear and socks, a backpacking type towel, a small toiletries bag, and a book. It was plenty roomy and even accommodated some souvenirs on the way back. I've also used it around town, and on day hikes too, so it's a good size for everyday use too.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice backpack, but smaller that expected. This is good for packing for a weekend, but it is too small for all of my son's books. The front pocket zips almost all the way around, but is awkward to fit a binder in. Laptop fits nicely in the back, though. As long as you are not looking to fit a bunch of text books or binders in it, it is a very nice backpack.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from moosejaw> My brother asked for one thing for Christmas this year. It just so happened to be a sold out North Face backpack. I started out by going to the stores nearby looking for it, only to realize this one gift was going to be harder to find than I had thought. Next step was searching the internet. The North Face was all sold out, but it had sent a link to Moosejaw. Side note: Unfortunately, I'm not an organized shopper that get all of their Christmas shopping done early. I usually start shopping after Thanksgiving, which doesn't leave me much time to find/ order gifts. I checked out Moosejaw's stock & they had exactly what I was looking for. My hopes started to go up, but I was still skeptical as it's a company I had not heard of before. I read over their policies & left the item in my cart for another day as I felt this company out. I took the plunge & purchased the backpack. Moosejaw sent an email right away (good start). The package was delivered way before (like 5 days before) I had even expected (bonus). Moosejaw sent a funny order slip (shown in attachment). I was starting to like this new company I had found. I sent a text to my other brother to show him their humor because I knew he would appreciate it. He now has the same feelings as I do about them (funny & dependable). Their personality stands out more than most websites/ companies. Unfortunately, I don't live anywhere near their stores, but I would totally shop there if I did. Moosejaw came in the clutch this Christmas & also gained a bunch of new customers from my huge family. Thanks for all you do!

Description says 15" laptop and specifications say 14". Which one is correct?

Asked by: Bill CT
Hiya Bill CT, thanks for your question! The actual laptop sleeve measures 12 inches by 14 inches. The sleeve fits a 15 inch laptop (measured diagonally). Sorry for the confusion!

1. Put your chin to your chest and feel for the big bone protruding on your neck at the top of your spine. That's the C7 vertebra.

2. Feel your hip bone, the top part of this is your iliac crest. Find the spot on your back that is level with the top of this crest.

3. Have someone measure the distance between these two points, following the contours of your spine.

1. Measure around your body where the hipbelt will rest while you hike. This should be just above your iliac crest.
