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 4 out of 5 by from A Very Decent Quality Backpack with Minimalist Design At 27 L, this backpack is sufficient for school use (a 1 in binder, several 1.5 cm thick notebooks, a writing utensil/battery bank case, a laptop charger case, a lunch box, and a 16 fl-oz tumbler in the main compartment; a laptop with sleeve, several thin portfolio cases, and several other small items in the laptop compartment; other items such as a glasses case, lip balm, small tube of hand moisturiser, etc. in the front pocket) or commuting to the office (although since I can afford to be more stylish commuting because I don't need to carry as much stuff, I prefer the Fjällräven Rucksack No. 21 Medium). As for any TNF product, the Pivoter Backpack is also of great built, which in its case also includes great back and shoulder support and lightweight yet durable construction material. I am not too hot about the D window for the main compartment; besides the exotic design, the left zipper can only open to the upper left position, making retrieving and storing extra wide items a bit awkward at times. I also wish the front pocket has divided compartments inside of just one storage pocket where retrieving small items a bit of a hassle and making sure the accumulated items don't all settle down to the same height and bulge out somewhat of a lost cause. I only use the side pockets to store compact non-essential items such as gum, breath mints, and snack bars, because it is useless for storing a drink container larger than a "spring" water plastic bottle. Finally, the bottom, unlike the ones found on the Surge and Surge Transit (not sure about other TNF backpacks), is non-debris repellent, so I had to apply multiple layers of Fjällräven Greenland Wax to it to make it as debris-phobic as possible. Overall, the features, quality, size, and comfort of this backpack are great, and the complaints that I have against it don't do much to detract against its usability. Looking back though, I should have purchased the Borealis or Surge instead. But hey, they r all TNF products.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing backpack for school! I bough this backpack about 3 monthas ago, and it was the best purchase I’ve made! This backpack is sturdy, reliable, and has more than enough space for supplies!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Strange back pack I bought this for my high school junior as the measurements seemed like they would work. I was soooo wrong, it is a very strangely configured pack. Very hard to access different pockets and it would not hold any of his binders. I gave him my old jester back pack. We use this one to carry snacks to football games. If I had kept the tags I would have returned it, I dislike it that much.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tough, durable, strong and good looking! Used this backpack on a recent 2 month trip through South America. I carry a lot of stuff and this Backpack handled it. It had many different compartments so I always knew where my items were. Durability was 5 stars and it's a good looking backpack.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great backpack. Definitely recommended It took me 7 years to replace my last backpack after looking at and returning multiple. The size, pockets, and comfort are perfect. It holds more than anything I’ll ever need to put in.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not what I hoped for I have had this backpack for over 1 year, and though it has not failed me, it is not ideal. It is difficult to put all of the notebooks/textbooks that I'll need for my classes each day along with my laptop in the main pocket. Also, due to the awkward construction of the pockets, it is nearly impossible for the backpack to sit upright by itself. That being said, it has done a superb job of keeping my belongings dry whenever I get stuck in an Alabama thunderstorm. I can imagine that it would be better suited for a student or commuter with fewer things to lug around each day.

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!

The North Face Men's Packs

SIZE One Size Small / Medium Large / X-Large
Torso Size (Adjustable) N/A" 15 - 20" 17 - 22"
Torso Size (Fixed) 17 - 20" 16 - 19" 18 - 21"
Hipbelt Size 28 - 40" 28 - 34" 35 - 42"

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.

The size info above is for The North Face technical and backpacking packs. Day packs and work / school packs are offered in One Size, and feature adjustable straps to fit an array of sizes.
